Arsene Wenger hopes the presence of Arsenal hero Thierry Henry at training this week can inspire his side as they look to make it five Premier League wins in a row against Norwich on Saturday.

Former Arsenal captain Henry, 34, has briefly rejoined his old club to stay in shape after the New York Red Bulls' Major League Soccer play-off campaign came to an end.

France striker Henry left Arsenal for Barcelona in 2007 and Wenger was delighted to see his compatriot back with the London club, telling Arsenal Player: "Thierry was in with our training today, and he does not need to show how good he is.

He is at home here and it is always good to have him back.

"He just wants to stay fit and enjoy the football club again, because he is at home here and it is always good to have him back.

"When you are not the day before the game, it is possible of course for him to practise with the first team. It is always a lift to see what a big player he still is."
