Goalscorer Henry happy with Gunners progress

Thierry Henry believed Arsenal had achieved their objectives after his 50th European goal set the Gunners on their way to a comfortable 2-0 Champions League victory over Porto at the Emirates Stadium.

Henry scored eight minutes before the interval when he rose to meet Emmanuel Eboue's brilliant cross with a downward header into the corner.

Alexander Hleb struck Arsenal's second just three minutes into the second half following excellent work from William Gallas as Arsenal went top of Group G following victories in their opening two games.

Henry believed it was a job well done, saying: 'I think it was. I think we played how we need to play at home. We passed the ball well around the box and scored at the crucial time.'

The French striker also insisted the Gunners would stick to the same approach, responding to those who had urged Henry to shoot on sight.

He told ITV4: 'I wanted to pass to Alexander. It is the way we play. We will never change. We need people to stay with us

'I did the same against Sheffield United at the weekend. I was giving some stick to Manu because he never crosses the ball or it goes behind the goal.

'But there you go. I'm scoring with my head.'

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger revealed Gallas may have suffered a hamstring strain during the game which saw him taken off in the final minute.

'It looked serious but at the moment we are reassured because it does not look too bad,' Wenger told ITV4.

'It looks like a hamstring strain which could put him out for three weeks but we must wait until morning.'

Wenger was greatly encouraged by the team's display and believes the north London club are developing in each game.

'We are getting stronger and stronger. We are sharp and we always looked dangerous and I feel it has a lot of potential and we are getting better by the game.'

Wenger also praised Henry who scored with a header for the second consecutive game.

'He proved he can score headers. So you always learn something about your players.'
