Thierry Henry Looks Strong in Arsenal Return

Could we have expected anything else? 

Thierry Henry notched the winning goal in his return to Arsenal and the EPL on Monday afternoon in a 1-0 FA Cup victory over Leeds United.

Henry was on the bench for the opening kickoff and as the match plodded scorelessly along the crowd awaited his introduction.  Despite a whopping 29 shots from the team, Arsenal striker Chamakh was not the finisher the home side needed to win the match so Thierry Henry was subbed on in the 67th minute.

It only took him ten minutes on the pitch to notch the winner to the delight of the Arsenal fans.  A perfect through ball from Alex Song sprung Henry and he expertly slid the ball past Andy Lonergan and into the net.  

Arsenal closed out the 1-0 victory and now advance to the 4th round of the FA Cup where they will face Aston Villa at the Emirates.  The big match of the next FA Cup round will be Manchester United at Liverpool.
