Thierry Henry questions Arsenal's mentality despite win at Bournemouth
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry does not know if Arsene Wenger's side have the mentality to win the Premier League ahead of Sunday's crunch meeting with Leicester City.
Leicester will lead Arsenal by five points when they make the trip to the Emirates, with the Gunners knowing that victory over their title rivals will put them in a strong position to lift their first title since 2004.
The 2-0 win over Bournemouth brought to an end a poor run for Arsenal, in which they had gone three games without a goal and have slipped below Tottenham Hotspur in the league.

And Henry, who has had a role coaching the youth team strikers, believes that the club's failure to take control of the Premier League when many of the traditional powerhouses are struggling is a sign of weakness.
"If I had said to you that Chelsea would struggle, Manchester City would struggle, you would have thought that it would be a season that Arsenal would walk away with it easily," Henry told Sky Sports. "And it's not happening.
"I would question also the mentality of it. The game against Chelsea, they didn't score [lost 1-0]. Those are the sort of games you need to win.
"They need three points. It is business. You don't win the league for a very long time. Can you win it? It's time to wake up and do it.
"For me at the moment, Leicester are the team to win it. They're not only showing they can win it, they're showing they can cope with the pressure."
