Gary Neville has heaped huge amounts of praise on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by comparing the striker to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
The 30-year-old netted twice at the Emirates to ensure Arsenal remain in contention for European football but it was the manner in which Aubameyang scored his first goal that drew comparisons to the iconic Frenchman.
After timing his run to perfection, Aubameyang latched onto a defence-splitting pass by David Luiz before cutting in from the left wing and tucking the ball into the back of the net.

‘This is Thierry Henry, everything about it,’ Neville told Sky Sports.
‘As he went through on goal you just imagined the great French striker sprinting down on goal, setting it out to that far post and scoring.
‘It’s Aubameyang now, wonderful. He’s got so much pace and he times the run well.’
