Thierry Henry could be struggling to be fit for Arsenal’s match against Manchester United after reportedly picking up a calf injury in training.

According to The Express, the Frenchman suffered the injury on Tuesday and has gone for a scan to see whether he will be fit for the encounter, but it appears at this stage that his participation could be in doubt.

Should the injury be of any note then it would be a big disappointment for player and club after his goalscoring return against Leeds United over a week ago.

Moreover, Henry, on loan from New York Red Bulls, has a lot of history with Manchester United following his first spell at the club which included a number of notable goals when the Gunners used to vie with the Red Devils for the Premier League title.
