Compilation Of Thierry Henry At Arsenal Proves He Is The Most Entertaining Player In Premier League History

After Thierry Henry become one of the first members of the Premier League's Hall of Fame club, it's only right we feast our eyes on his best bits.

The Frenchman's decorated career in the top flight has been commemorated as both he and Alan Shearer became inaugural inductees, with six other greats set to be recognised.

A four-time Golden Boot winner, Henry was unplayable during his time at Arsenal, regularly winning games on his own for the Gunners.

In addition to his electric pace, 'TH14' was unbelievably gifted technically and also a deadly finisher whenever a chance presented itself.

In total, he notched an incredible 228 goals for the North London outfit - 175 of which came in the Premier League to put him sixth in the all-time top scorers list.

The World Cup winner notched 20+ goals in five separate seasons in the Premier League, which is quite sublime, but Henry was so much more than a goalscorer.

He was one of the best dribblers we've ever had the pleasure of seeing in English football and also had a knack for setting up teammates - he still currently holds the record for the joint-most assists in a single season with 20.

Remarkably, all of his assists came from open play in the 2002/03 campaign and that particular area of his game is what separates him from the rest of the pack.

It's why many deem him to be the greatest ever to do it in the Premier League. The swagger, sauce and the elegance. He was an absolute joy to watch in his prime.

"To be inducted alongside Alan Shearer as the two first inductees into the Premier League Hall of Fame is more than special," Henry said after his achievements were acknowledged in a huge way on Monday morning.

"When I was young, I was just trying to make sure I could get a pair of boots and now we're talking about the Hall of Fame... If you asked me at the start of my career about entering the Hall of Fame, I wouldn't have believed you. It's an amazing honour."
