Best Arsenal Players of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Thierry Henry Thierry Henry Thierry Daniel Henry is a French professional football coach and former player. He is the second assistant coach of the Belgium national team.

Yes, those are EPL stats... full stats is 226 goals in 364 apps... breathtaking and definitely the best of all time for the Gunners - xyz5100

I remember a game when the team were not playing well, even the fans were booing. I was in the North bank about 4th row and shouted to Henry 'Can't you do something to shut these idiots up? ' thing he scores 2 goals and shouts back 'How's that, will that do? ' I laughed and shouted back 'It's a start we may need another...' But there was a big grin on my face and Henry always put a smile on my face when he played. He also never gave up...He had the right temperament, the right attitude...and the right foot for the job even when it was his left!

Thierry Henry was a amazing player he was one of the invincibles just shocking how he came to arsenal he wasn't playing good but look at what arsene made him into a striker one of the worlds best striker 226 goals in in 7 and a half seasons that many goals is unbelievable

He is the EPL legend!

2 Dennis Bergkamp Dennis Bergkamp Dennis Nicolaas Maria Bergkamp is a Dutch former professional footballer, who is the assistant manager to Frank de Boer at Ajax.

Bergamot could influence the game so, much creating space and opportunities for his team mates, he was the key ingredient of the great arsenal teams

Dennis helped me to love Arsenal. I love Henry, but he wasn't original. Talented, but still an ordinary forward. Dennis had extreme intelligence, ball control, and athleticism. He always got the ball where he wanted it (diving header pass in front of goal, brilliant 360 move vs Newcastle, etc). His vision and weight of passing were incredible. He did things no one has seen before, and shaped Arsenal into their Invincibles squad (alongside Wenger). An underrated legend.

his skill makes henry look like nothing. master of the long range shot too.

He Is the best

3 Mesut Özil Mesut Özil Mesut Özil is a German professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Arsenal. He is considered to be one of the best players in the world. Özil plays mostly as an attacking midfielder, but can also be deployed as a winger.

I was so upset when Real Madrid sold ozil but if he had to go I'm happy it's to arsenal

It may be to early to say for sure, but Ozil may end up being the best player to ever play for Arsenal.

Record signing 42.million sheer class

He is great

4 Patrick Vieira Patrick Vieira Patrick Vieira is a French former footballer and current head coach of New York City FC, who played as a midfielder.

I think he controlled play better than any other arsenal player and he really helped the team because he had very good leadership, he was an amazing tackler and he never steamed to be tired, he had a good shot and could dribble well to.
An amazing player every manager would want him in there team!

5 Tony Adams Tony Adams

The kind of hardman centre halves that are missing from todays game. Also a fantastic leader. If we had him and Sol Campbell back in the line up our defensive worries would be history.

Mr Arsenal! Stayed with us his entire career like a true footballer and he was just the defender we need today. - AGK

6 Ian Wright

How is this man so high up the list we only won the league when he got dropped for every goal he scored the team missed out on scoring two.

Should not be so high up. Won the league just before he came and won it again a few months after he was dropped

He scores lovely goals

Ian was briliant

7 Robert Pires

My favourite player of all time. His dribbling, passes, penalties and not to mention crossers were legendary!

Arsenal's greatest ever winger, so consistent.

Lovely player

8 Alexis Sanchez Alexis Sanchez Alexis Alejandro Sánchez Sánchez, known as Alexis Sánchez or simply Alexis, is a Chilean professional footballer who plays as a forward for English club Manchester United and the Chilean national team.

No way that Ozil should be ranked higher than Alexis. Without Alexis this current Arsenal team would be nothing, he is the heart and soul of this team!

Alexis is one of the best football player in the world. Alexis Sanchez sometimes not played good but even Eden hazard but in my opinion I say Sanchez is better

Alexis Sanchez is a very good awesome player. He is the best

I don't care if he is not the best Arsenal player of all time, but he should at least be on the top 10

9 Aaron Ramsey Aaron Ramsey Aaron James Ramsey is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Arsenal and the Wales national team.

JUST AMAZING 100987763663 times better than Wayne gooney

10 Robin van Persie Robin van Persie Dutch footballer from Rotterdam born on August 6 1983. Currently plays for the Turkish club Fenerbahçe S.K and The Netherlands national football team as the number 11. Robin Van Persie is known for playing for Arsenal and Manchester United, though his most notable goal was his header against Spain more.

he is good at dribbling and always scores penaltys

Van persie van persie robin is his name
Better than Walcott never misses target

Over-rated. Shouldn't be this high on this list. He's only up here because young people can't remember the legendary players of old.

He is a rare striker he is world class finisher.

World Class, First player to go overseas and actually win something

Had he been playing now he would be worth more than Pogba. Pure genius. An intelligent player on and off the pitch.

Sheer class...

The best...

13 Cesc Fabregas

NO. 8? What? Number 2! Nobody else that Arsenal has ever had has the vision that this boy has, passing, almost everything... I agree that Henry is number 1, nobody comes close to him... and also Pires and Vieira should be higher up... - xyz51007

Golden boy award at age 19. Captain when he turned 20. Best creative midfielder that Emirates stadium has ever seen. Miss you Fabregas. True gooner!

Cesc Fabregas should at least be number 2 he is the best passer in the world and I agree dat henry is up their but the player with the most vision does not deserve to be 12 place. He started being captain at age 20 that is impressive

This guy's a snake. Plain and simple. - AGK
