"I hope the fans can help me to score," said Henry last night, "I am dying to score my first goal.
"When I was taken off, the applause from the fans was wonderful. I would've liked to have stayed on for longer, but I understand the coach's (Frank Rijkaard) decision."
Meanwhile, Giovani dos Santos, who replaced Henry, was delighted to make his Liga debut.
"It was a good debut for me," said the Mexican teenager. "But it would have been spectacular if I'd scored. I was desperate to do so."
