France legend Thierry Henry scores the winner on return to Arsenal.The script couldn’t have been collated any better than this at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night as the final tie of The FA Cup Third Round Proper was settled in a true ‘Roy Of The Rovers’ escapade, with Arsenal edging out Leeds United courtesy of a goal from their all-time record goalscorer Thierry Henry on his second debut for the club.French legend Henry only joined the Gunners on loan from US outfit New York Red Bulls late last week and had to be content with a place on the bench to start with, but with the game all square with over an hour played and the crowd chanting for the introduction of their hero, boss Arsene Wenger had little to lose.And it certainly paid off, as the 77th minute winner was classic Henry, right from the way he collected a pass on the left-hand side of the area with one of his first touches of the game before caressing it with his right foot across the goal and into the far corner.It’s been seen many times before in north London and it was no real surprise to see it happen again, once Alex Song had rolled the ball into space for Henry.Arsenal 1-0 Leeds UnitedThe FA Cup with BudweiserThird Round Proper7.45pm, Monday 9 January 2012Emirates Stadium, Arsenal FC
