Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has been showing the MLS, once again, that he has still got what it takes to produce magic on the football pitch and wow watching crowds.


Henry inspired current side, New York Red Bulls, to a 4-1 victory over Toronto FC at the Red Bull Arena, notching up three assists for team-mates and topping off a successful night with a sublime lobbed finish from 20 yards out.


Gunners fans will be familiar with the classy French striker’s brilliance, having seen him do similar things at Highbury and Emirates Stadium, while opposition fans will be remembering times when he has pulled off something special against their side.


Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United have been on the receiving end of one or two Henry specials, the flick up and volley over Fabien Barthez in 2000 comes to mind.


Liverpool were also the recipients of Henry’s most devastating form and few better than his slaloming run through their defence to turn the tide in the Gunners favour during a crucial match in their ‘Invincibles’ season.


Though an iconic celebration, now immortalised outside Emirates Stadium in bronze, against fierce local rivals Tottenham Hotspur will always be one of the defining moments in his Arsenal career – it is certainly not going to be forgotten in a hurry by Spurs fans.
