Thierry Henry Alex Chamberlain

Thierry Henry Alex Chamberlain, Thierry Henry grabbed the winner as Arsenal came from behind to beat Sunderland, helping them leapfrog Chelsea into fourth place in the Premier League after the west Londoners lost at Everton.
In a fitting end to what could be his final Gunners appearance – subject to the upcoming Champions League clash with AC Milan in midweek – the Frenchman’s injury-time goal handed Arsenal all three points with a 2-1 win.
The result saw them into the Champions League places after Andre Villas-Boas’ side lost 2-0 to Everton.
Arsenal’s win puts them four points ahead of their other rival for a top four spot, Liverpool, who lost to Manchester United in the early kick-off at Old Trafford.
Sunderland had taken the lead with a 70th minute goal from James McClean, but Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsay equalised in the 75th minute.
Henry was brought on with 24 minutes left, replacing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had been heavily marked by Sunderland throughout the match.
And he ensured the Gunners took all three points with a calm finish at the death.
Everton’s win against Chelsea was the Toffees’ first back-to-back league wins at home since May 2011.
The Merseysiders looked favourites early on when Steven Pienaar scored on his second appearance back in an Everton shirt and Denis Stracqualursi doubled their lead with 20 minutes left on the clock.
