Thierry Henry has told Arsene Wenger to go hammer and tongs to win the Europa League and save Arsenal’s season.

Arsenal are eight points off the top four with just 11 games left to play following the north London derby defeat to Tottenham last weekend

The Gunners return to European action on Thursday night when they travel to Sweden to take on minnows Ostersund in the first-leg of their last-32 clash.

Henry, Arsenal’s all-time leading goalscorer, has urged Wenger to play a full strength team and go all out for victory for the rest of the Europa League campaign – following Manchester United’s lead from last season.

He believes that winning a European trophy is Arsenal’s best way of restoring some credibility to another disappointing season.

“You still have some big teams in the Europa League, including Arsenal,” Henry said on Monday Night Football.

“They can still get the top four, but what they can achieve the most is winning the Europa League. I see that more [likely to happen] than finishing in the top four.

“Something incredible might happen, but it’s unlikely for that to happen.

“Should they focus on the Europa and let the league go? I don’t think you can do that, but you should go really strong on trying to win the Europa League.

“At the end of the day, that brings you back into the Champions League – and you are winning a trophy.”
