London, Dec 20 (ANI): Thierry Henry, who now plays for Barcelona, believes that his old club Arsenal can still win the title.

French striker Henry does not want to jinx Barcelona by predicting a La Liga triumph, but he reckons Arsene Wengers men can succeed against all odds.

Where Arsenal are concerned I always speak with my heart before my head. Everyone has been having a go at Arsenal but the Premier League is very competitive and not easy for anyone, The Sun quoted Henry, as saying.

They are still in the race. It will be difficult of course because its better to be eight points ahead than eight points behind as Arsenal are at the moment but it could be five after Sunday if they beat Liverpool.

I watch every Arsenal game either live or recorded and I have Arsenal TV, too. I will definitely be watching the Liverpool game and hope they win. Im still an Arsenal fan and always will be for the rest of my life, Henry said.

You dont spend eight years somewhere and not bother about them any more. Im proud I played for one of the best teams in the world, and maybe the greatest in terms of the love I felt for the club and what the fans felt for me.

Henry believes Arsenal can turn it around because Barcelona has had some similar problems this season while overcoming their bigger rivals. Barca lost their first game of the campaign at unfashionable Numancia and drew at home to Racing Santander and Getafe.

He added: Arsenal have a habit of beating the big teams this season. Its difficult sometimes. In my last season at Arsenal we did the double over Manchester United and still finished 21 points behind them. (ANI)
