Wenger lauds hero Henry
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger lavished praise on striker Thierry Henry after the Frenchman netted four times in the stunning 5-0 win over Leeds.

"We have said so much about Henry that it's difficult to add something more. He's certainly one of the top three strikers in the world," said Wenger.

"Everybody knows about him, and better than talking about him is watching him.

"When the team's on the same wavelength and he is playing with his power and pace it's just a joy to watch."

Henry preferred to praise his team-mates for their roles in the five-star performance.

"The boys played some great balls for me - I still have to put them in but it's always a pleasure to play with quality players alongside you.

"What can I put that performance down to? Commitment and desire.

"If you have quality and ability it doesn't matter - unless you have desire and commitment and go out and express yourself, you won't get anywhere."

"We get closer but it's not done"
