Thierry Henry remains one of the greatest strikers to play in the English Premier League leaving a great legacy while at Arsenal. The Frenchman played for the Gunners for ten years making some incredible achievements under Arsene Wenger.
He is one of the strikers every upcoming striker looks up to every time and wants to be successful like him. He is Arguably the best forward to ever play in the Premier League and what he achieved only a few strikers can achieve or beat.
Henry has good records which may take years to break or even come close but one record that will remain standing for long is winning the Ballon d'Or three times in a row. No player in the history of the league has managed that except for the former Arsenal Thierry Henry.
Henry who is currently Belgium's national team assistant manager was the top scorer in the Premier League from 2003-04, 2004-05, and 2005-06 campaigns at the Emirates. Generally, he won the award four times but winning three successive times has been difficult.
The only players who came close are Mohamed Salah, Robin van Persie and Harry Kane who only won it two times in a row but never managed the third. He is the seventh-highest top scorer in the league with 175 goals and the all-time top scorer for Arsenal having scored 228 goals for the side in 377 appearances.
What he managed to achieve in his ten years at Arsenal only a few players have achieved and he was recently called in Premier League hall of fame list. He remains one of the most entertaining and prolific goal scorers in England.
