Arsenal hero Dixon: Why Mbappe has edge on Henry

Arsenal hero Lee Dixon believes PSG whiz Kylian Mbappe could be better than Thierry Henry.

The 19-year-old helped secure France's ticket to the World Cup final last night, after a brilliant performance against Belgium.

Dixon, who played with Henry at Arsenal, believes Mbappé can be compared to his old teammate.

He said on ITV: "That's his hero [Henry].

"I was lucky enough to play with him and when I first started at Arsenal he was as fast as Mbappé.

"But there was a maturity that came with Thierry as he got older.

"This guy [Mbappé] seems to have something that Thierry didn't have.

"He's already intelligent and he still has the pace which is such an asset to have."
