Barcelona forward Thierry Henry agrees with Cesc Fabregas that Arsenal are playing as more of a team without him.
The France international eventually signed for Barcelona in June, after ongoing speculation linking him with the Spanish club.
As Henry left critics immediately wrote-off any possibility of Arsenal being a force in the title race.
Whilst it is early days, The Gunners have enjoyed an excellent start to the season, and are currently top of the Premier League.
Following the dramatic 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, Fabregas expressed his belief that the side are now operating as more of a team.
Henry has concurred with the Spaniard's opinion, and believes Arsenal are blossoming in his absence.
"Recently I read Cesc Fabregas' comments - he is right," Henry told L'Equipe.
"Now Arsenal play more as a team. That means the whole team has improved their level."
The Frenchman also drew comparisons between his time at the club and Dennis Bergkamp's reign, explaining that players would often look to the Dutchman as their main passing outlet.
"When I came to Arsenal, the players naturally favoured to play to Dennis Bergkamp, who could make something happen at any moment - that was logical," he added.
