Jose Mourinho: Henry is right, Arsenal can be Invincibles again

After the former striker's assertion that Arsene Wenger needed an entire new spine, the Chelsea boss feels the chasing pack will all strengthen
Jose Mourinho agrees that Arsenal are four signings away from becoming "Invicibles" again following Thierry Henry's assessment of his former side.
The former striker said on Monday that Arsene Wenger needed four "top-quality" arrivals to challenge the likes of Chelsea for the Premier League title, which has evaded them since the unbeaten triumph of 2003-04.
Victories for Chelsea over Leicester City and Crystal Palace will clinch Chelsea's first league crown since 2010, having led the charge all season, but Mourinho feels talk of domination is premature.
"It's even more difficult to dominate than before," he told reporters. "How can you speak about domination when everyone knows what will happen next summer?
"Arsenal have a phenomenal squad. Thierry Henry said they need four top-class players but give to Arsenal four top-class players and I think they will again be The Invincibles."
Mourinho also noted the strength of the chasing pack, adding that Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City will only further strengthen in the summer after underwhelming seasons.
He added: "Manchester United have a phenomenal squad, including the most expensive player in the history of the Premier League, Angel Di Maria, who is not even playing.
"That shows the quality of the squad. They are a club where Financial Fair Play doesn't make a big difference and they will invest hugely again in the summer.
"City have done phenomenally well, winning two titles in three years and people say they will invest hugely again. Liverpool can be fighting for the title, too.
"It will be even more difficult for everyone than this year. It's very difficult for a team to be dominant. This is not Germany with Bayern Munich. Not Switzerland with Basel. Not Scotland with Celtic. It's very difficult."
