Thierry Henry refuses to answer Kate Abdo question about Arsenal during Champions League broadcast

Thierry Henry refuses to answer Kate Abdo question about Arsenal during Champions League broadcast

Arsenal trail Porto ahead of their second-leg clash next week.

Thierry Henry refused to answer Kate Abdo's question about Arsenal during the CBS Sports broadcast following last night's Champions League action.

Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Manchester City all booked their spot in the next round of the competition following their victories over Lazio, Real Sociedad, RB Leipzig and Copenhagen respectively.

Four ties are scheduled next week, with the likes of Arsenal, Barcelona and Inter Milan in action.

Ahead of next Friday's Champions League quarter-final draw, Abdo asked Henry and Micah Richards who they'd like to play out of the favourites in the next round.

The former Man City defender opted for Bayern, who beat Lazio on Tuesday but are struggling in the Bundesliga.

Abdo then asked the same question to the Arsenal legend, who refused to answer.

He said the Gunners must focus on the task at hand as they trail Porto 1-0 ahead of next week's second-leg.

"We're not through... we lost one-nil. We're behind the eight ball."

Abdo pressed Henry for an answer, saying if Arsenal do progress who would he want in the quarter-final.

But the Frenchman stayed firm and did not answer as Jamie Carragher also picked Bayern.

Arsenal conceded a goal in the 94th minute in last month's first-leg clash.

They will look to overturn the deficit next Tuesday when they host their Portuguese counterparts.

Speaking after the result, Mikel Arteta lamented his side's showing in Porto.

"I am very disappointed with the way we gave the game away at the end. Not managing that situation well enough. You get punished in the Champions League. If you cannot win it, you don’t lose it," he said.

"We dominated the game but we lacked purpose, especially in the first half. You need to have much more aggression, you need to break lines, to play forward and generate much more threat on that backline.

"In the second half there were much better things and we ­generated a lot of situations, without really ­creating much from it. We will learn from it. Now it is clear, it is half time. If you want to be in the quarter-finals you have to beat your opponent."
