It's eight years ago to the day that Thierry Henry broke Ian Wright's goalscoring record for Arsenal. 
 
Henry became the Gunners' top marksman of all time after a brace against Sparta Prague. FourFourTwo doffs its cap to Arsenal's legendary No.14 with 14 of his most memorable strikes. And there are plenty to choose from…

5. A tale of two Frenchmen

Nov 25 2001: Arsenal 3-1 Man United (Ljungberg, Henry 2; Scholes)

This top-of-the-table crunch clash seemed destined to end all square after Paul Scholes' early effort was cancelled out by Freddie Ljungberg's three minutes after half time.
 
But two decisive Henry strikes (and two blunders by compatriot Fabien Barthez) in the final 10 minutes gifsts the Gunners all three points. The France goalkeeper passes a goal-kick straight to Arsenal's talismanic forward to fire the hosts 2-1 in front, before failing to smother Patrick Vieira's chipped ball over-the-top, allowing Henry to slot home the clincher.
 
The Gunners would go on to clinch the Premier League title at Old Trafford in the penultimate game of the season with yet another Frenchman, Sylvain Wiltord, netting the only goal.
