VIDEO: Arsenal legend Thierry Henry with sublime back-heel assist

Thierry Henry New York

The New York Red Bulls man is up to his usual tricks.

The New York Red Bulls are currently in play-off action, with their former Arsenal legend and son of an Arsenal legend strike partnership in great form.

Thierry Henry has been setting them up and Bradley Wright-Phillips knocking them down all season long - as the Red Bulls look to claim MLS Cup glory.

Today they took on DC United in the Eastern Conference semi-finals - after a double from BWP overcame Sporting Kansas City in midweek.

And Henry rolled back the years at the Red Bull Arena with what can only be described as a sublime assist.

The ex-Arsenal man did the odd audacious thing during his time at Arsenal, but this assist for BWP to score his 30th goal of the season.

The ball came to him in the DC area when in double quick time he controlled the ball and played a back-heel pass to the number 99 to put the ball past the onrushing goalkeeper.

It was the type of moment Arsenal fans crave from their current crop yet so rarely receive. The Frenchman is a free agent in the New Year.

An Arsenal return?

Based on this, why not...
