Henry – The reason why Arsenal refused to celebrate Walcott’s goal

Thierry Henry has given his reaction to the muted celebration from Theo Walcott after his equalizer against Manchester City. 

Arsene Wenger’s men dug themselves out of trouble on two occasions by scoring to level matters after Pep Guardiola’s men had taken the lead.

However, there appeared to be little emotion displayed by Walcott and his teammates after he slotted the ball home for Arsenal’s opener.

And Thierry Henry came up with his own theory for why that was the case on Sunday.

“I found the reaction weird at the time. The second goal also.” he said on Sky Sports

“The reaction of it wasn’t that great.

“They don’t even jump on him properly but they managed to come back.

“Sometimes we underestimate – and we’ve been through it – what it’s like when the pressure is on you.

“They’ve had a lot of pressure on their backs and they could have just forgotten to celebrate the goal.”
