Arsenal 4 - Charlton 0: Henry is back

When Thierry Henry takes part of Arsenal team, everything is different in the whole world. That's why the London team easely beat Charlton 4-0.

Charlton had Darren Bent injured and Marcus Bent was there to replace him and play the lone striker role. Sadly for the visitors, Marcus just isn`t good enough alone.

In fact, Osei Sankofa was sent off for fouling Van Persie inside the box, replays later showed that referee Mike Riley got it all wrong. Van Persie was apparently offside and active prior to the incident.

Thierry Henry slotted home the opener from the penalty spot and then became creator for defender Hoyte to slot past Scott Carson.

After the break Scott Carson had a good performance and made some world class saves. He is one of the best goalkeepers in the premiership already and even at his young age could easily be England's first choice. One good thing that Dowie did do while at Charlton was to sign this lad.

What's more, Diawara tugged Henry`s shirt inside the box and another penalty was given. Van Persie just smashed it home, after Carson had gone the right way. It was to finish 4-0 with the Dutchman neatly chipping the oncoming Carson in the last minutes.
