Crystal Palace boss Vieira: Henry a step above Spurs striker Kane

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira insists Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry was a level above Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Ahead of the lunchtime kick-off, the ex-Arsenal captain was asked to compare Tottenham forward Kane and former team-mate Henry.

Vieira praised the Spurs striker, who is nine goals away from the Frenchman's overall tally of 175 Premier League goals, but admitted the Gunners great was at a “different level."

Pushed to elaborate, the Eagles boss admitted: “Thierry could do everything.

“He had pace, power, he could run in behind, could get the ball in his feet and dribble past three or four players and go to score the goal. Maybe because I played with Thierry, I see him in a different way.

“Maybe it's easier for me to talk about Thierry than to talk about Kane. That's something that you guys have to take into consideration as well! But I see Thierry as in the top three of all time."
