Hleb Is On Fire

Thierry Henry is the second person in a week to heap praise on Belarussian international, Alexander Hleb.

Hleb was hailed by Arsene Wenger earlier in the week for his vast improvment in his game, and now, his captain has continued with the plaudits.

Henry said,

'He is on fire. What I like about him is he is always turning, going forwards, having a go at the left back. He is always willing to attack and, when you are a defender, that is a thing you hate.

'It takes time to get used to it [here], and we must not forget that he also got injured. But he has come back and then was not playing. We were not playing so well either and that does not help.

'I think in Stuttgart he had more of a playmaker role, so it took him a bit of time to adapt on the wing. But at the moment he is playing brilliantly.'

Hleb will continue on the wing this weekend with Ljungberg out injured.

Disagree BFFC. its only in the past month he's been playing really well, and we have had our doubts about him, but i think £10m could be a real bargain...

You obviously don't watch Arsenal very much Beef and read too many newspapers. Before Hleb's injury he was our best player this season, and yes it took him a while to get back on form when he returned, but he is now running defenders ragged.
