'The reaction wasn't great' – Thierry Henry slams Arsenal for this in draw v Man City
By Matt Bullin
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has claimed that the Gunners reaction to Theo Walcott’s first-half equaliser in their 2-2 draw with Manchester City was not good.
Arsenal twice came from behind to secure a point against City as Walcott and Shkodran Mustafi equalised from Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero’s respective goals.
However, club legend Henry noticed something was not quite right with the Gunners as, after Walcott’s equaliser, the team did not seem to celebrate.
He said on Sky Sports’ Super Sunday: “The reaction [to the goal] wasn’t that great.
“They don’t even jump on [Walcott] properly. They’ve had a lot of pressure on their backs and they could have just forgotten to celebrate the goal.”

Arsenal are suffering in the Premier League at the moment amid uncertainty over the future of manager Arsene Wenger.
The draw means Arsenal have just one point from their last three games as they slumped to defeats at Liverpool and West Brom.
They now sit sixth in the Premier League, seven points behind City in fourth, though Arsenal do have a game in hand.
Walcott, 28, is enjoying his most profitable season ever for Arsenal having netted 18 times in 31 league and cup appearances.
Though even he was not able to muster more than a smile when he scored against City – perhaps the pressure on Wenger is rubbing off on his players.
