Cape Town - Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has admitted he doesn't think his former club will be able to finish in the Premier League's top four this season.

The Gunners were still in the top four early last month, but back-to-back defeats to Liverpool and West Brom, followed by a 2-2 draw at home against Manchester City, has seen them drop to fifth position.

Despite only sitting four points behind fourth-placed City, with a game in hand, Henry believes Arsenal will find it difficult to close the gap on the top four sides.

"Arsenal usually finish in a strong way and the top four still have to play each other, but it's difficult to see Arsenal making it," Henry told Sky Sports.

"It is a massive gap now to finish in the top four. 

"I will say in comparison to how they played against West Brom, it was a massive improvement against Man City."
