Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has labelled his current attacking line, the best he has had since the Thierry Henry days.

The Gunners attack currently boasts of some truly top quality players like Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere and the manager is confident that it is the best lot he has had since the days of the Invincibles, with the likes of Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Freddie Ljunjberg and Jose Antonio Reyes.

Arsenal are known for their attacking prowess and slick passing play and they were at their peak during the early 2000's, including the 2003/04 season, when they managed to remain unbeaten in the league for an entire season.

Wenger is confident that his current crop of players can match them, but has admitted that they are still not at the required level to emulate their predecessors.

The current Arsenal team have scored 27 goals in their 25 Premier League games and are only behind table toppers Chelsea and Manchester City.

"A prolific Premier League attack should score between 70 to 100 goals in a season. We are not there yet, but this attack is our best since Thierry Henry's days - this one has the most potential since then," Wenger said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"This weekend is the first time we have been able to line them up all together, so we are yet to see what they are capable of achieving."

The manager reserved special praise for the north London club's current number one striker Olivier Giroud, who has grown into one of the finest forwards in the country since his arrival from France in 2012.

"Giroud's style is less elegant than strikers before him like Robin van Persie, but he has progressed a lot and he is now a complete striker because he has added decisive passes to his game," the Frenchman explained.

"He works for the team more than most players who contribute that many goals," Wenger added.
