Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says the presence of Barcelona striker Thierry Henry in the stands inspired their 6-2 win over Blackburn Rovers. Henry was back at Emirates stadium to see his former club and Wenger told arsenal.com: "Thierry inspired today our goalscoring because they wanted certainly to show Thierry they can score goals and they are good followers of him.
