Henry hails ex-Arsenal man Balogun
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has praised Folarin Balogun for his decision to join Reims during the summer transfer window.
Balogun, 21, signed for the Ligue 1 side on a season-long loan last month.
The striker has already made an impression in France, scoring five goals and assisting two in just seven appearances.
He earned his first award last week after being named Ligue 1 Young Player of the Month for August.
And Arsenal icon Henry believes the young star will only improve during his time in France.
Arsenal's next five games
Here are Arsenal's next five games.
Boehly wants All-Star match
Todd Boehly wants a North vs South Premier League All-Star game – and reckons it would boost the football pyramid.
The American said: "Ultimately I hope the Premier League takes a little bit of a lesson from American sports and really starts to figure out, 'Why wouldn't we do a tournament with the bottom four teams? Why isn't there an all-star game?'
"People are talking about more money for the pyramid… the MLB all-star game in Los Angeles this year made $200m [£173m] from a Monday and Tuesday.
"You could do a North vs South all-star game in the Premier League and fund whatever the pyramid needed very easily.
"Everyone likes the idea of more revenue for the league. There is a cultural aspect that is real and evolution will come. The nice thing about the Premier League is you own the worldwide rights."
Giroud backs Arsenal to finish in top four
Former Arsenal star Olivier Giroud has referred to the club as "my Gooners" as he backed Mikel Arteta's men to finish in the top four this season.
Speaking to Sky Sports in Monza at Sunday's Italian Grand Prix, Giroud opened up on Chelsea' sacking of Thomas Tuchel before discussing Arteta's side.
He said: "It’s part of football. It’s sad. I think Thomas has done a great job for Chelsea.
"I’ve also been watching my Gooners. I think it’s going to be another interesting year for them."
Pressed on whether Arsenal will finish in the top four, he remarked: "Yes, definitely. I hope so."
Blockbuster day of sport in December
England fans could be treated to an incredible Saturday of live sport with Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury AND a crunch World Cup match.
Joshua has accepted Fury's challenge to step into the ring for a 'Battle of Britain' heavyweight showdown on December 3.
That could take place just a few hours after England have booked their place in the World Cup quarter-finals.
The Three Lions three group games are on November 21, 25 and 29.
And should they finish second in Group B behind Wales, United States or Iran, Gareth Southgate's side will play the winner of Group A at 3pm UK time on December 3.
Partey set for Arsenal return
Arsenal have been given a huge boost ahead of Sunday’s clash at Brentford.
That’s because Thomas Partey has returned to full training following a thigh injury.
The midfielder, 29, had missed Arsenal’s last three games against Fulham, Aston Villa and Manchester United.
But CBS Sports claim Partey could be back in Arsenal’s XI when they travel to Brentford this weekend.
Arsenal set for fixture congestion
Arsenal are facing a fixture backlog after suffering a second postponement in the space of five days.
Thursday’s Europa League game against PSV Eindhoven is definitely off following discussions with UEFA and the Metropolitan Police.
Arsenal's trip to the Brentford Community Stadium was given the green light because it is a Category Three match in security terms.
But the Gunners are struggling to find a slot to reschedule the PSV match, which must be played before the final Europa League group games on November 3.
The next two weeks are out of the question because of an international break.
And the only week after that which does not already have European commitments has a full midweek of Premier League fixtures.
Wenger backs Arsenal for title tilt
Arsene Wenger has broken his Arsenal silence and backed Mikel Arteta’s team to launch an unlikely title challenge.
The most successful manager in the club’s history has never been back to the Emirates since his brutal sacking in 2018 and has steadfastly refused to comment on the team he left behind.
But now the 72-year-old Frenchman has opened up on the current state of play and cannot hide his admiration for the job being done by Arteta.
Wenger said: “I would say they are moving in the right direction. I honestly think there is no weak position in the team… they are young, promising players and they have bought well this year.
“There is no completely dominating team this season and Arsenal has a chance with the potential that is there.
“We used to be in the top four and why not again? You cannot even rule out the fact that they can fight for the title and hopefully they can do it.”

Arsenal vs Man City in doubt
Arsenal may have to postpone their top of the table clash with Manchester City next month – to accommodate their re-arranged fixture with PSV Eindhoven.
The Gunners have been forced to call off their Europa League fixture against the Dutch club on Thursday due to concerns of policing following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
They now have to find an alternative date or face forfeiting the game – and with the World Cup looming they are running out of options.
PSV forfeit unlikely, say Arsenal
Arsenal are optimistic they won't have to forfeit their postponed Europa League clash against PSV Eindhoven.
The Gunners' group stage match with PSV had to be rearranged due to lack of police resources as forces have been redeployed to work on The Queen's state funeral on Monday.
The North Londoners were scheduled to take on the Dutch side at the Emirates on Thursday but had to be called off just like other London fixtures.
That has created quite the headache for Arsenal as there there is no available date to play the game before the group stage is due to end on November 3 before the World Cup.
UEFA regulations dictate that Mikel Arteta's side must find a new date to stage the fixture or forfeit the game.
According to the Evening Standard, however, Arsenal are confident they can find a solution to the matter as they continue negotiating with the relevant authorities.
Balogun showing a 'refreshing mindset', says Henry
Speaking to Amazon Prime Video, Henry said: "I’m really happy for him because in general English players don’t go abroad.
"Normally players are loaned either to another Premier League side or in the Championship.
"He’s a very English-style player who likes to run down the channels but he was missing something, which was his finishing.
"He’s now starting to score goals regularly and I’m happy for that – happy he has gone abroad.
"It’s especially so considering he is a Londoner, in general Londoners struggle to leave London.
"When I heard he was coming to France, it made me think he has a refreshing mindset."
Henry praises Flo
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has praised Folarin Balogun for his decision to join Reims during the summer transfer window.
Balogun, 21, signed for the Ligue 1 side on a season-long loan last month.

Partey's significant injury history
Partey is now into his third season at the Emirates following a £45m move from Atletico Madrid.
But previous injury woes means Partey has missed 36 matches for the Gunners.
More on Partey's return
The Ghana international took on a starring role in the Gunners’ opening three games – wins over Crystal Palace, Leicester and Bournemouth.
And his presence in Arsenal’s side will be a huge boost to Mikel Arteta following the 3-1 defeat to United earlier this month.
An injury to fellow midfielder Mo Elneny saw Albert Sambi Lokonga play next to Granit Xhaka at Old Trafford.
Arteta had been hoping to land another powerful midfielder on deadline day.
But he was left empty-handed when Aston Villa rejected a £23million bid for Douglas Luiz.
