Arsenal great Thierry Henry explains being ‘tired’ of watching Liverpool

0

Liverpool have relentless in their push for the Premier League title this season and subsequently left Thierry Henry exhausted.

Arsenal’s former superstar goalscorer has watched the Reds totally dominate English football since being crowned European champions last June.

Jurgen Klopp’s team are in with a real chance of matching the Gunners’ feat from 2004 of going the entire Premier League campaign unbeaten.

Not only that, the Reds look destined to register a record points tally, having won 26 of their 27 matches to date.

Henry was part of one of the best ever Premier League teams when Arsenal were at their peak between 2001 and 2004.

But even Liverpool are giving that side a run for their money in terms of their consistency, passion and energy.

Henry has kept a close eye on English football this term, and along with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, it makes for incredible viewing.

“The intensity, the rhythm that you have in the Premier League, it’s very high,” Henry told French outlet Canal Plus .

“You see, when you watch Liverpool, even just watching them, you get tired. They move so quickly.

“When you go to Manchester City, before you have even looked up, there is pressing on you. If you control the ball, there are already three guys around you.

“The Premier League’s intensity is immense.”

While City pipped Liverpool to the title last season, six defeats and three draws this term has seen them fall well off the pace.

Guardiola’s team have surprisingly scored more goals than the Reds, having netted 68 times compared to the league leaders’ 64.

Klopp won’t be worried, though, as his defence is rock solid, and their goals conceded in the 3-2 win over West Ham at Anfield last night was a rarity.

Liverpool have shipped in just 17 goals in 27 matches, and up next is a trip to 19th-placed Watford on Saturday evening (5.30pm).
