Henry Is a Pain In The Neck
Thierry Henry has been ruled out of the North London Derby tomorrow with a pain in the neck. The skipper missed the defeat at Bolton with the same injury. He did manage to play against Fulham in the week but looked to still be suffering.
When speaking to Sky Sports Wenger said: 'The bad news is he is not fit, but the good news is we are focused on winning the game.
'I think it is a good time (to play Tottenham) as we want to bounce back from our two disappointments and win our game.'
Despite recent criticism, Wenger says that his young side are already a strong team: 'I feel I have a strong team, it is right that they are young and I believe in them.
'They will get there as they are strong players and will develop very quickly.
'I know exactly what I want to achieve with them and I will get to where I want to go.
'I am convinced we are on the right track and this will show through.'
Robin Van Persie or Manu Adebayor could start up front alone in Henry`s absence.
