Arsenal's two-goal derby hero Patrick Aubameyang "reminds me of Thierry Henry", says Gunners' midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
Aubameyang scored twice in Arsenal's 4-2 Premier League victory over Tottenham at the Emirates on Sunday, and Ramsey says the Gabon international's second strike, a first-time finish from 20 yards, was reminiscent of Henry at his best.
Four-time Premier League Golden Boot winner Henry is Arsenal's record scorer, with 228 goals during his nine seasons at the club over two spells.
"He does that in training all the time. It reminds me of Thierry Henry's finishes," the Wales midfielder told BBC Sport.
"He's been fabulous for us."
Aubameyang opened the scoring from the penalty spot, but Spurs roared back his goals from Eric Dier and Harry Kane to lead 2-1 at the break.
Aubameyang made it 2-2 on 56 minutes with his 10th Premier League goal of the season, and his 20th in 27 top-flight matches since joining Arsenal in January.
Substitute Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira then secured the victory to extend Arsenal's unbeaten run to 19 matches.
"I think that was important for us to score that [Aubameyang] goal," Ramsey continued.
"Then you could really feel that the atmosphere was electric. That really helped us to get over the line and win convincingly in the end.
"I have been here for many many years, it means an awful lot to me and to the fans as well. I am glad I played my part and we can all go home happy tonight.
"They could have gone six points in front of us but instead we've gone above them. The atmosphere was electric, that really helped us over the line in the end."
