Thierry Henry is arguably the greatest player to have ever graced the Premier League, and a compilation video shows just how dominant he was against defenders.
Henry is sixth on the Premier League's all time top goalscorer list, 94 goals behind leader Alan Shearer, but there isn't a single player with 100 goals or more with a better goals to game ratio.
The former Arsenal striker struck all sorts of fear into the opposition during his eight year spell in north London, and was even handy in the four games he returned for in 2012.
His skill, pace and incredible finishing skills are often talked about but, as well as being able to outrun defenders, he was also able to dominate them physically.
A compilation of highlights from the Frenchman's time in England shows just how underrated that part of his game was.

I say no striker, I repeat :repeat_one: no striker in premier league history is better than Henry. Not even close..- Kurt Riley (@kurtbartough) July 22, 2021
Different class at his best, video game player on 99- Mwansa Kafwembe (@realafella) July 22, 2021
It's only when you look back you ponder whether we fully appreciated him if that makes sense- Ash (@ACshlee13) July 22, 2021
With Henry in the side, Arsenal won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and reached the final of the Champions League, but things are pretty different these days.
The Gunners finished eighth in the league last season and failed to qualify for any European competitions for the upcoming campaign.
Mikel Arteta has brought in midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht and is hoping to add Ben White to the team as well.
James Maddison and Tammy Abraham are also being lined up for a double swoop and Arsenal fans will be praying the pair can find a similar bond to the one Henry had with Robert Pires...
