Thierry Henry fears for Man United’s Marcus Rashford

Thierry Henry on Marcus Rashford

On Sky Sports’s Monday Night Football show, Marcus Rashford was the focus of attention for Thierry Henry.

Man United were beaten 1-0 at Newcastle last weekend. Matt Ritchie was the hero for the Magpies.

Rashford missed the game at St James’ Park with a thigh injury picked up in the Huddersfield match.

Yet, looking at the wider picture for Rashford at Old Trafford, Henry is wondering if the forward needs to consider moving on.

Rashford to leave Man United?

Thierry Henry argued why Rashford may be wise to explore his options:

You cannot be on the bench and missing games, missing learning about the game and stopping that momentum, and an example is Rashford.

Michael Owen had the opportunity to back up what he did the year before because he played, and he played, and he played, and he played – and I can give you more examples.

But Rashford at times could not capitalise on what he did from that year [after his debut], because sometimes he is playing on the right, [sometimes] on the left.

Leave is a strong word. Obviously being from there, he wants to play for United. But he has to play and it is becoming even more difficult for him since Sanchez has arrived.

I think at the end of the season, he is maybe going to have a thinking day of ‘do I stay?’

But is Henry peddled ‘fake news’ about Rashford?

Up until the Newcastle game, Rashford had appeared in every Premier League for United this season.

While he may not have started every game, Jose Mourinho has relied on the England international a lot this season.

Will Arsenal be in the Champions League next season?

After Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham in the north London derby at Wembley, it’s beginning look incredibly unlikely that the Gunners will finish in the top four.

Tottenham’s win means that Arsene Wenger is seven points behind Mauricio Pochettino in the table with 11 games to go.

Many will now believe Arsenal’s best chance of playing UCL football next term will be in Arsenal can win the Europa League.

The Gunners head to Sweden this week to face minnows FK Ostersunds in the last 32 of the UEL.

Why Arsenal didn’t sign Liverpool’s Van Dijk

On Monday Night Football on Sky Sports, Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry tried to understand why the Arsenal defence is so bad.

The pundits recognised that Wenger has failed to significantly improve Arsenal’s backline in recent years.

It seems clear to everyone that new blood and quality is needed to solidify the Arsenal rearguard. Yet, when a player like Virgil Van Dijk came on the market, it was Liverpool who stumped up the cash.

Did Arsenal make a mistake allowing VVD to join Liverpool?

And what are fans to make of Wenger’s claim that Jonny Evans wasn’t signed because West Brom wanted too much money. Yet there was money to break their transfer record on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

For Carragher and Henry, Wenger’s failure to sign Van Dijk was a mistake.

Both talking heads believe it’s obvious that Arsenal have defensive problems, and they wondered if Wenger is blinkered from the truth.

Watch the discussion below.
