Arsenal fans left in hysterics at Thierry Henry’s commentary as Tottenham lose

Arsenal fans have been left in hysterics by Thierry Henry's commentary as Tottenham lost in the Champions League.

Antonio Conte's side suffered their first defeat of the season in Portugal on Tuesday evening as late goals from Paulinho and Arthur Gomes gave Sporting their first ever home win over English opposition. Gunners legend Henry provided analysis on the goals after the match as part of his role as a pundit for Paramount+ in the USA.

His commentary of Arthur's stunning solo goal was particularly amusing for Arsenal fans as he made noises every time he went past a Spurs defender.

The winger cut in from the left before beating Cristian Romero with a stepover before nutmegging Emerson Royal and slotting the ball between Hugo Lloris' legs.

“No that goal, I don’t care it’s only because it was against Spurs, but look at what he does," exclaimed Henry. "Stepover, meg, see you later, here you go, meg, see you later, 2-0, bye.”

Arsenal supporters were quick to react to Henry's hilarious commentary on social media, with one tweeting: “He’s actually so funny.”

Another added: “Inject it straight into my veins.” A third fan also wrote: “Just have to love the bias of Thierry Henry.” Meanwhile, a fourth tweeted: “How can you not love this man.”

Henry remains Arsenal's all-time top scorer, having scored 228 goals in 376 appearances for the Gunners, including five in 11 north London derbies against Spurs.

One more supporter also commented: “Arsenal fans please take a minute and watch. I am in stitches.” Another fan added: “This fills me with unimaginable joy.”

Spurs' loss in Portugal leaves them three points behind Sporting after two matches and level on points with Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt ahead of the international break.

Conte's side will face the German side back to back at the start of October before bidding for revenge when they host Sporting at the end of the month. Their group stage campaign will end away to Marseille on November 1.
