Striker Thierry Henry capped a perfect day for Arsenal FC when he was named the English Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year for the second consecutive season last night.
Arsenal clinched their 13th English championship - Henry's second since arriving at Highbury in 1999 - when they drew 2-2 at north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur FC after second-placed Chelsea FC lost 2-1 at Newcastle United FC.
Henry did not score at White Hart Lane but the 26-year-old is sure to finish the season as the Premiership's top scorer with 29 goals so far, out of a total of 37 in all competitions. His prowess has also set him on course to win the ESM Golden Shoe award.
The France striker reached his century of league goals in early February and has scored 150 in 251 games in all competitions since 1999. He is now third in the club's all-time scoring records behind Ian Wright and Cliff Bastin.
