Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger still rates Barcelona striker Thierry Henry a major threat ahead of tonight's Champions League clash.

Henry, now 32, joined Barcelona in the summer of 2007, after a superb Arsenal career which saw him lead the side against the Spaniards in the previous season's Champions League final.

Despite now being utilised more often from the bench by Josep Guardiola, Wenger maintains: "Thierry is still a threat because he is an exceptional talent.

"We are happy to see him back at the Emirates and he will get the warm welcome he deserves.

"However, when the game starts it will be a quarter-final of the Champions League where we will of course give everything to beat him."
