Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Anthony Martial - Thierry Henry comparisons

Henry Statue Arsenal

The Manchester United forward has been compared to the Gunners legend after his goal against Liverpool.

It's interesting that Liverpool were so poor at Manchester United on Saturday afternoon that the only debate after their trip to Old Trafford is one raging between United and Arsenal fans.

Indeed, the Reds are the biggest victims in all of this - as Anthony Martial's tearing to shreds of Martin Skrtel has reminded many of Thierry Henry's own fine finish against Liverpool.

Side by side, the Manchester United forward's goal looks very similar to the Arsenal legend's (as can be seen above).

But the Gunners faithful haven't reacted all too favourably to suggestions the 19-year-old is the next Henry.

On Twitter, plenty of Arsenal fans have been quite dismissive of the comparison. Is the Manchester United forward - bought for considerably more than Henry ever was - really that similar to the Gunners icon in style? And can he become as good as him?

It seems United and Arsenal fans won't be able to come to an agreement, if some of the following reaction on Twitter is anything to go by. Maybe the deciding vote could go to Liverpool fans. The only problem there is they won't want to re-watch either goal as they'll both remind them of terrible days at the office for Reds defenders...
