Thierry Henry has admitted to being worried that Tottenham could finish above Arsenal for the first time in 22 years this season.

Spurs have not finished above their north London rivals since 1995, which saw the former finish in seventh while the Gunners trailed behind in 12th.

Spurs came close last season, but by the end they were humiliated after a poor end of season spell which saw Mauricio Pochettino’s team tumble down to third place, with Arsenal the team to overtake them.

However, Tottenham have continued to impress this season and currently sit in second place after a 4-0 victory over West Brom on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Arsenal trail behind in fifth place and Henry has admitted that he is worried that the Gunners could finish above Spurs this season.

“You had to ask me that question,” started Henry speaking on Sky Sports 1 after the game when asked by Jamie Redknapp if he was worried. “Yes, in all fairness yes. They look good and I like when they play with a back three. I said it before that they were strong at the Emirates when they played Arsenal. We know what happened here against Chelsea when they played a back three and today again. I don’t know why they don’t do it all the time.

“They were unplayable at times, the passing and the way they were passing the ball on the ground. They were calm, composed and scoring goals and Kane could have scored two more goals easily, it was a great performance.”

Arsenal are facing relegation battling Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday and they are strong favourites to win the clash.

A victory for the Gunners will see them move to within a point of Tottenham, keeping the rivalry in the table alive for the time being.
