Thierry Henry in race to be fit for Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Manchester United

Thierry Henry faces a race to be fit in time for Arsenal’s meeting with Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday, according to the Daily Express.

Henry pulled out of training with a calf problem on Tuesday, but the injury is not thought to be serious and he returned to practice lightly the following day.

Arsenal’s physios will continue to monitor Henry, according to the report, and are hopeful the issue does not flare up again.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger was strongly considering placing the Frenchman in the starting line-up for the first time since he returned to the Emirates on loan, although he may now have to re-think those plans.

Meanwhile, midfielder Mikel Arteta looks set to remain sidelined after struggling to recover from a calf strain that ruled him out of the club’s 3-2 defeat against Swansea City.

Arsenal will leave a decision on the Spanish midfielder’s selection as late as possible, but he had not returned to full training on Wednesday.

The match will likely come too soon for defender Bacary Sagna, who is back in training after recovering from a broken leg.
