Henry: This trio have transformed Arsenal this season

Arsenal icon Thierry Henry has picked the players that he believes have been the key to the club's great start to the season.

The Gunners are in outstanding form domestically at present, as they are at the top of the Premier League.

Their most recent result was a hugely impressive win in the North London derby against Tottenham.

Asked about their season so far, Henry told CBS Sports: "What I like with the Arsenal team right now is that it's a different team. If you talk about something that's important, it's a different team.

"Gabriel Jesus is really changing, not only him. Saliba at the back allows them to play in a back four, so Mikel goes into what Pep does also with City with [Oleksandr] Zinchenko. [Granit] Xhaka is playing way better. That's what I was more impressed with than the result because that's what happens all the time."
