Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react after Thierry Henry aimed a dig at Tottenham ahead of their 2-2 draw against Rennes.

Of course, Arsenal aren’t in it, although it’s probably for the best that Mikel Arteta’s side don’t have to face a congested schedule for the sake of a poor competition.
