The Gunners take on Manchester United at Old Trafford where Wenger’s side have the chance to put a seven-point gap between themselves and the Red Devils.

Wenger is yet to beat one of Mourinho’s side in 14 competitive meetings and the pair nearly came to blows during Chelsea’s 2-0 win against Arsenal last October.

Mourinho has aimed a number of digs at the Frenchman over the years and Wenger said he was ’embarrassed’ for Mourinho following the Portuguese’s claim that his rival is a ‘specialist in failure’.

And Henry, who spent seven years in north London, says the football world is waiting for Wenger to win against Mourinho.

‘Can Arsene Wenger win a game against Jose Mourinho in the league? That’s what everyone wants to see,’ said Henry.

‘Obviously Mourinho does something tactically that stops Wenger from winning

‘But Arsene has had a lot of opportunities to win a game against a side Mourinho was coaching – I am talking about the league – so when is it going to happen?

‘It’s interesting to see how they’re going to behave and play against United, especially with what happened last season.’
