Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has paid tribute to returning Arsenal hero Thierry Henry.

The Spanish international, who left the Emirates Stadium for Camp Nou in the summer transfer window, continues to keep a close eye on results in north London as a fan of the club.

And, after seeing the Frenchman score the winner for the Gunners against Leeds United in the FA Cup third round last night, he joined other Arsenal fans on Twitter in saluting the loanee's efforts for Arsene Wenger's side.

"Just seen Thierry's goal last night. Only he could have done something like that... Special players for special moments. Fantastic!"

12 months previous, Fabregas had scored a last-gasp equaliser against the Whites in the same competition to keep the Gunners in the competition and force a replay against Simon Grayson's side.

And again, Leeds threatened to thwart Arsenal's progress in the competition, only for the club's all-time record goalscorer to slide home the winner in the later stages of the second-half.

Henry completed his short-term move back to the club on Friday, just hours before the deadline to feature in last night's match, and will again be available to Arsenal for their league match at Swansea on Sunday.
