Lethal Strike Force
Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp formed a lethal partnership for Arsenal up front and were a driving force behind their ‘invincibles’ season of 2003-04 alongside the likes of Robert Pires and Patrick Viera. While Bergkamp scored 86 goals for the Gunners, Henry scored 175 goals to become the 5th highest Premier League goal scorer of all time.
The two forwards were very influential to each other’s attacks and provided the perfect foil for one another, as Arsenal became one of Europe’s most exciting teams before Henry’s eventual departure to Barcelona in 2007.
