Don’t you feel old?

Arsenal’s greatest ever goalscorer found the back of the net for the club for the first time on 18 September, 1999 in what was his ninth game for the club.

This was, of course, only his first ‘first’ goal for Arsenal.

He memorably scored against Leeds on his return to the Emirates on loan in 2012.

In total, Henry appeared 376 times for Arsenal, scoring 228, winning two Premier League titles, three FA Cups, and four Golden Boots.
