After victory over Derby, Wenger beamed: "I thought about Henry when Adebayor scored his third goal, I thought, 'That's a Thierry goal'.
"Robin is a bit Bergkamp and Adebayor a bit Henry in their similarities. They complement each other. You do not find another Bergkamp and Henry on every corner and sometimes you wonder how you will ever replace them.
"But I always felt from day one Adebayor would give us a different option, one that would be suited to the British game.
"When the opposition pin you in your own half, you can play the long ball and still have a good chance for him to win it.
"He's different to Thierry because he uses his strength and power more and is better in the air.
"He has had to work very hard on his finishing but he is intelligent and certainly got a lot of advice from Thierry.
"They spoke a lot together and Thierry told him to calm down."
