Benteke has confessed he loves the London giants.
Belgian bruiser Benteke said: â€œThierry Henry was my favourite player. Every young player has an idol they look up to.
â€œWhen I was 10, I went on holiday to London to visit my mumâ€™s sister and I went to Highbury to watch an Arsenal game.
â€œI loved the Invincibles because they had a lot of great French players like Henry, Robert Pires and Patrick Vieira.
â€œArsene Wenger says he might sign Henry again on-loan in January. It would be great to play against him because Iâ€™ve so much respect for him but itâ€™s not an obsession.
â€œSaturday will be the first time Iâ€™ve faced Arsenal but donâ€™t be fooled. Iâ€™ll do everything to beat them and, if we do, itâ€™ll be sweet.
â€œYou can like a team but, if you face them, you must beat them."
