Robbie Keane is hoping he can make the same impact at Aston Villa as Thierry Henry on his return to Arsenal after joining the midlands club on loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Henry marked his return to the Gunners by netting the winner against Leeds in Monday's FA Cup tie at the Emirates Stadium. Keane has linked up with Villa until the end of February and is in contention to play in Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Everton.

The 31-year-old said: "Can I do a Thierry Henry? I hope so. It would be great to do that."
