Thierry Henry has admitted that Manchester United under Jose Mourinho can emulate the all-conquering Arsenal side of 2004.
United started the season in scintillating fashion on Sunday, with a 4-0 win over West Ham.
The overall performance by Mourinho’s men, left fans and pundits alike purring, while many described it as the best display of the post-Alex Ferguson era.
Speaking to Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Henry also applauded their showing.
“Do I see the Invincibles in this Man Utd team? Oh yeah. When I see them especially on Sunday I saw that.
“I saw power, pace, guys with ideas and legs. They can cover the ground really quickly, that’s very important. We had that at Arsenal.
“Arsene went into more guys that can play in and around the box. A lot of the players at Arsenal look to be the same type of player, the same frame in a way.
“Mourinho likes bringing players he knows are going to be able to play the way he likes to play,” he said.
