Thierry Henry has only a 10 to 15 per cent chance to play at Manchester United on Sunday, according to Arsène Wenger.

The Arsenal striker injured his foot on the eve of the Champions League tie at Hamburg in midweek and his recovery has taken longer than expected

"It doesn't look good for Sunday," admitted Wenger on Friday afternoon. "It is still the foot. He has not recovered from it. On Sunday there is just a little chance he will play - 10 or 15 per cent."

Henry is not the only worry up front.

"Robin van Persie is injured as well," Wenger went on. "He injured his hip when he blocked his leg in German grass. He is having a scan."

When asked for his remaining options up front the manager replied: "Adebayor, Baptista and Walcott."

Kolo Toure has recovered from the hip injury that forced him off at Hamburg and is fit for the game at Old Trafford.
