Thierry Henry reveals favourite Arsenal goal - but which one did he choose?

The guys respond to your tweets about the Arsenal-Leicester match, Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez.

Every Arsenal fan has a favourite Thierry Henry goal -- including Thierry Henry himself.

The French striker netted a club record 228 goals during his time as a Gunner, with several of those widely considered to be true classics.

So which one does Henry remember most fondly?

His solo effort against Liverpool to put Arsenal up 3-2 at Highbury in April 2004, in a game where the hosts had trailed twice.

"There was one goal that was more than a goal. Not in terms of the game or the beauty of the goal or whatever that people usually talk about," Henry told the Arsenal Weekly podcast. "It's the goal I scored against Liverpool when I scored the third one to make it 3-2. It's the only time in my life that I felt a stadium breathing again." 

Thierry Henry's goal against Liverpool in 2004 is his favourite of the 228 he scored for the Gunners.

Arsenal went on to win that game 4-2 after Henry completed a hat trick, keeping their unbeaten streak alive en route to the club's legendary "Invincibles" title run.

More than that, Arsenal fans was still lamenting a sudden end to their Treble dreams, having been knocked out of the FA Cup semifinals by Manchester United and the Champions League quarterfinals by Chelsea in their two previous matches.

Henry said he knew straight away that it was a special moment, which still resonates today.

"At the time, I remember scoring it and I felt it," he said. "And we were talking about it in the dressing room. And whenever I see that goal I can still feel what happened that day in the stadium."
