Pires: I feared for Arsenal after Henry sale

Villarreal midfielder Robert Pires admits he feared for Arsenal when Thierry Henry left for Barcelona in the summer.

"I did doubt Arsenal after the exit of Henry but the young players are demonstrating their excellence already," he said. "The match against (Manchester) United will be a test of fire for them.

"If Arsenal beat them I think they will win the title and that would give me a lot of satisfaction."
