Arsenal hero Thierry Henry points out main difference between this current Gunners side and The Invincibles

Thierry Henry has attempted to pinpoint the major difference between this current Arsenal team and the one he played in.

And it seems the Gunners legend is convinced it is the club’s inability to win games away from home that is seriously letting them down.

So far this season Arsenal have won 10 of their 13 Premier League matches played at the Emirates, which puts them third in a table based on home games.

Away from north London and it’s a different story. Of the 14 matches the Gunners have played on the road they have won just three times.

This puts them ninth in a table based on away games, behind the likes of Leicester City, Watford and Burnley.

Arsenal were beaten 1-0 by north London rivals Tottenham at Wembley Stadium last time out, with Harry Kane bagging the only goal of the game.

The Gunners are now seven points behind Spurs – their closest rivals in the Premier League – in sixth and seemingly out of the running for a top four finish.

“It’s difficult to explain because you expect Arsenal to have a good record at home,” said the Gunners legend.

“You don’t associate Arsenal to get that amount of points away from home.

“In my team we won the league twice unbeaten away from home. With all the flamboyant football we were playing we knew how to get away with a 0-0, winning 1-0, not conceding away from home.

“We knew at home we could open teams up, in 2001/02 we lost, I think, all the games that we lost were at home. You win the title away from home.”
