Arsenal's former player and new loan signing Thierry Henry, center, celebrates scoring on his first game back with his French manager Arsene Wenger and Sebastien Squillaci during the English FA Cup 3rd round soccer match between Arsenal and Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium in London, Monday, Jan. 9, 2012.

LONDON — The temptation to partner Thierry Henry with Robin van Persie in an all-star strike combination may be too hard for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to resist when the team returns to Premier League action with a trip to Swansea on Sunday.

Henry proved his enduring class by grabbing a late winner against Leeds on his second debut for Arsenal in an FA Cup third-round match on Monday.

It extended Henry's club-record tally to 227 goals and with the 34-year-old striker potentially featuring in up to eight matches in his loan spell at the Emirates stadium, there are positive vibes swirling around Arsenal at the moment.

Wenger now has to decide whether Henry and Van Persie can work in tandem to lift the team back into the Champions League positions.
