Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has claimed that Manchester United will win the Premier League this season.  

The explosive start that Manchester United have made to the Premier League this season has led to many believing that Jose Mourinho will deliver the title at the end of campaign. The Red Devils, who are serious title contenders already, have been further boosted by the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Former Arsenal player, Thierry Henry, is also of the same belief that Ibrahimovic will help United win the Premier League this year.

Henry said on Sky Sports: “They kept Zlatan, but I think Zlatan takes it as a challenge that he has with himself. I think he wants to do more, and he still didn’t win the league. I know that he wants to win the Premier League, to make England another country that he conquered.”

The Frenchman continued to state that he wasn’t surprised that Manchester United have signed Zlatan again, by adding: “I’m not surprised, because if I was there [at Man United] I would want to keep a guy like Zlatan in and around the dressing room.

“Having him around [Romelu] Lukaku, having him around Marcus Rashford [is beneficial]. Rashford was talking about it last year, he knows how to get that dressing room together.”

Henry also revealed his admiration for the big Swede, by stating: “I’m not surprised in a way because we are talking about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the best that has done it in the game, for me.”
