The video proceeds to show some of the Frenchman's best pieces of skill while playing under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
The forward could be a human highlight reel at times with the sublime tricks he could pull off.
Fans were quick to react to the clip and give their opinions on who they think is the better forward.
Ngl think Henry would get double the amount of goals he did get if he had the likes of De Bruyne, Silva and Sterling feeding him the ball constantly against poor opposition- Louie Graham (@louiegraham98) January 12, 2020
Aguero is better as an out and out goalscorer, Henry was a better overall player- :wolf:MithrandilPlays:christmas_tree: (@MithrandilPlays) January 12, 2020
Nah Aguero is an absolute bagsman and has been for a decade, one of the best strikers in PL history but Henry made it look like he was a man playing against school kids. He was like a cheat code. Adriano on PES but in real life- Greg richardson (@rakis14) January 12, 2020

Who's the better Premier League striker?- SPORTbible (@sportbible) January 13, 2020
It's a debate that will likely rage on for years but there's no doubting the duo will go down as Premier League legends.
Henry lit up the English top flight during his time in North London and was a key player in 'The Invincibles' side that went unbeaten the whole 2003/2004 season.
Aguero, meanwhile, has arguably established himself as City's all-time greatest player.
He joined from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and has won four Premier League titles, the first of which he sealed with the iconic 'AGUERROOO' moment.
Furthermore, he's also scored the most amount of hat-tricks in Premier League history, with yesterday's trio of goals making it 12 hat-tricks in nine seasons.
At 31, he doesn't seem to be showing signs of slowing down so he'll likely be breaking a few more records in the next few years.
Who do you think is the better striker, Henry or Aguero?
