Arsenal legend Thierry Henry heaps praise on Liverpool and Man City tactics

Arsenal hero Thierry Henry has hailed the tactics of Liverpool and Manchester City following their dominance of English football.

City have won the last two Premier League title, just edging out the Reds last season on the final day of the season.

The Merseysiders are set to break several records this term though, having dropped points just once all year on their way to their first ever Premier League crown.

And Henry has hailed tacticians Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola for their efforts with Liverpool and City respectively.

“The intensity, the rhythm that you have in the Premier League, it’s very high,” Henry told Canal Plus.

“They move so quickly. When you go to Manchester City, before you have even looked up, there is pressing on you.

“If you control the ball, there are already three guys around you. The Premier League’s intensity is immense.”
