Thierry Henry was one of the greatest players not only to have played for Arsenal but to have played in the Premier League. He was a player that would get fans off their seats every time he got the ball because supporters knew he was capable of making some special happen. Defenders were frightened of Henry because he would embarrassed them repeatedly.
With his last kick of a ball for the club, Patrick Vieira scored the winner penalty in the 2005 FA Cup final against Manchester United and the Gunners haven’t replaced the midfielder since. It’s been 15 years since Vieira departed the club but Arsenal are still searching to find the ‘next Vieira’.
Tony Adams was pivotal to Arsenal’s first Premier League triumph in 1998. The defender was one of the stalwarts in the famous Arsenal back five and unlike a lot of players, improved the older he got.
