Arsenal pair Fabregas and van Persie watch NYRB's Henry

Former Arsenal star Thierry Henry attracted a star-studded crowd when he played for New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.

The Frenchman had in attendance present day Gunners stars Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie at the Red Bull Arena as he scored in the 27th minute of the 2-2 draw with reigning champions Colorado Rapids.

Fabregas and van Persie sat alongside Red Bulls defender Rafael Marquez who was not playing as he prepares for Mexico's friendly with New Zealand in Denver ahead of this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Arsenal captain Fabregas will surely have his name in the headlines again this summer as links with Barcelona will continue whilst van Persie can enjoy a restful summer after topping the Gunners' scoring list with 22 goals in all competitions.
