THIERRY HENRY and Dennis Bergkamp were all smiles watching their old club deliver a knockout blow against Manchester United.

And Henry, 44, and Bergkamp, 52, couldn’t help but crack a grin at seeing their former team breeze past Ralf Rangnick’s men.
The pair had reason to be happy, after witnessing Arsenal see off their fierce rivals.
Arsenal were ahead within three minutes after slack defending by Raphael Varane and Alex Telles.
The Gunners were two up after just over half an hour when Bukayo Saka scored his second penalty in as many games.
But any hopes of a Man United comeback disappeared when Fernandes wasted a golden opportunity to equalise from the spot on 55 minutes.
Fernandes opted for a showy shuffle and shimmy run up before hitting a lame spot kick that dribbled wide after hitting the post.
He then capped the visitors’ miserable day by losing the ball on the edge of his own box for Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka to smash home a 30 yard shot.
Henry and Bergkamp, themselves, know a thing about playing against Manchester United.
The pair were involved in some fierce battles in the past.
Henry famously scored a sumptuous volley at Highbury, flicking the ball in the air before firing over Fabian Barthez.
Berghamp, however, missed a last-minute penalty in an FA Cup semi-final that would’ve knocked United out.
Instead, they went on to win the FA Cup and lifted the treble that season.
