Irons take Henry by surprise


HenryArsenal legend Thierry Henry is the latest player to refuse ruling out West Ham as top four contenders.

Not unnaturally he believes the Gunners can win the title and that they and the two Manchester teams are set to battle it out at the top.

But he has encouraging words for the Irons hordes who are watching the lads rub shoulders with the Premier League elite.

And he said: “You always have one team that is trying to make the top four and thinking why not push and fight for the title.

“Every weekend I think: ‘Today will be a bit too much for West Ham,’ but every week they win the game!

“You never know what can happen but I think United, City and Arsenal will be in the top three at the end of the season with a surprise team in the top four or Chelsea coming back at the end.”
