The Gunners have found a brilliant start to the new Premier League season.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes the Gunners’ low squad depth might exhaust their impressive form.

The Gunners suffered their first defeat of the season against Manchester United last week. However, Mikel Arteta’s side remained at the top of the league campaign with 15 points from their six matches.

Henry is excited by Arsenal’s strong start to the new campaign, insisting their newly-found ‘togetherness’ could be the key to success.

“I can see a team there, a togetherness, and I like that. The team is different but you’ve got the likes of Gabriel Jesus, William Saliba, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka,” Henry told CBS Sports.

“I believe in them. I haven’t believed like this for a very long time, believed that we could do something.

“But I worry about the Europa League because of the depth of the team. I think the starting XI is good enough but this is a long season so it might be a bit much for them.”

Arsenal added five new players to their squad this summer, hoping to complete their rebuild process under Arteta.

The Gunners will meet FC Zurich in their Europa League opener on Thursday.
