In the Sky Sports studio afterwards the main discussion point was whether Arsene Wenger can realistically continue in his role after a terrible week.

Jamie Redknapp suggested the club needs someone young, who knows the club and with fresh ideas claiming that Henry could be Arsenal’s answer to Pep Guardiola.

What a picture that paints for Arsenal fans.

Can you imagine Henry developing Arsenal’s attack and crafting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang into one of the world’s finest strikers in his own image?

All the while competing at the top of the Premier League and in Europe.

Sorry I got carried away there but by the noises of social media it is a move that would please a lot of the fans.
