Watch: On this day in 2004 Thierry Henry scores outrageous backheel

Thierry Henry scored some utterly outrageous goals for Arsenal but for pure ingenuity the below one takes some beating.

It came on October 2nd, 2004 in a 4-0 mauling of Charlton Athletic that took Arsenal’s unbeaten Premier League run to an astounding 48 games.

Henry received the ball with his back to goal on the edge of the six-yard box with Jon Fortune in close attendance.

However, the mercurial Frenchman saw a gap and a route to goal and took it with alplomb.
