Thierry Henry believes Arsenal would have won Premier League title within last five years without their injury woes

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes his former side’s bid to become Premier League champions has been scuppered by injuries.

The Gunners, who entertain Swansea on Monday, haven’t won the title since they went the entire campaign unbeaten 11 years ago.

Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, captain Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere are among a number of key players who have missed large chunks of this season.

And Henry believes Arsenal must get to the bottom of their injury problems if they are to challenge champions Chelsea for honours next term.

‘Arsenal must sort out this injury situation,’ said Henry, who missed only one of Arsenal’s 49-game unbeaten run. 

‘I honestly don’t know why the get so many. Arsenal would have won the title within the last four or five years but for all these injuries.’

Arsene Wenger’s side are 13 points adrift of Chelsea, with three games left, but could finish in second place, their highest position in a decade.

Henry, writing in his Sun Newspaper column, added: ‘It is not a coincidence that every time they get the players back, they go on a fine run.’

Henry also insisted that Wenger remains the right man in charge of Arsenal.

‘I am not sure a change of manager guarantees anything,’ Arsenal's all-time record scorer said. 

‘Look at Manchester United after Sir Alex Ferguson left the club. They have been nowhere near the top.’
