In the 2001-02 season his 24 league goals helped Arsenal to their first title since 1998. This was the first of five seasons in which he would exceed the 30-goal mark in all competitions as Arsenal won the League and Cup double for a second time under Wenger.

But Henry was my no means just a goalscorer. The Frenchman was elegance personified, his penetrative runs from deep, quick feet and subtle flicks making him the Premier League's marquee player for a long time.

Two years later he would feature prominently as Arsenal won the Premier League without losing any of their 38 matches. The team were branded ‘The Invincibles,’ and Henry’s total of 30 league goals is his highest ever tally in a season.
