2. Thierry Henry
No other player had scored over 20 goals in five consecutive campaigns before the Frenchman came along. Famously converted from winger to striker by Arsene Wenger, his pace and potency were absolutely sublime. Henry had two spells at Arsenal, famously coming back in 2012 on loan.
He won the PFL player of the year twice and was an integral part of the Invincibles back in 2003-04. He’s also the Gunner’s all-time leading goalscorer with an amazing 228 goals. Henry captained the club in his final two seasons with the club before moving on to Barcelona.
