Former Cardiff City striker Earnshaw's five goals are second-best in the league.
‚ÄúYou miss a pass or you miss something or you let the ball bounce and you don‚Äôt attack it before him, he will punish you. That‚Äôs what he does best,‚Äô‚Äô Arsenal legend Henry told the New York Post. ‚ÄúI‚Äôve played against him, I saw him play so many times.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs the type of striker that you might not see him a lot in the game but at the end you might see his name quite often on the scoresheet. We have to be careful. Good player. Good striker. Hopefully he‚Äôs going to be able to score goals, but not against us.‚ÄĚ
NYRB teammate Tim Cahill seconded their need to be wary of Earnshaw.
‚ÄúI know him personally,‚Äô‚Äô said Cahill. ‚ÄúI know what he‚Äôs done in the Championship and during his time in the Premiership, as well. He‚Äôs a very good footballer with a good footballing brain. But in and around the area, half-a-yard snapshots, he‚Äôs really trying to catch the ‚Äėkeeper flat-footed and slot them to the bottom corners, but also an opportunist.‚ÄĚ
