Midfielder feels Gunners have moved on from Henry exit

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has praised Robin van Persie and Emmanuel Adebayor for helping fill the void left by Thierry Henry's departure. Sceptics tipped Arsenal to struggle following Henry's departure to Barcelona earlier in the summer. However, Arsenal have begun the season in scintillating fashion and currently top the table after an unbeaten start to the campaign. Fabregas admits it was tough losing Henry, but he believes the team has now moved on from the Frenchman's exit.

Difficult

"In the beginning it was very difficult because he is a great player," Fabregas told Sky Sports News. "We all miss him, not just on the pitch but also in the dressing room. "We have to accept it. Life goes on and we have to move on. "I think right now we are doing very well, we have other options. "Adebayor and van Persie are doing really, really well and Eduardo is adapting very well "He [Eduardo] is very strong and can help us in a lot of key moments in the season and we have to be happy with what we have got." The former Barcelona youngster also believes the Premier League is currently the best league in the world.
Best league
"English football right now is the best league in the world for me," continued Fabregas. "I think in Spain there is a lot of quality the players are very, very good technically. "When you talk about games, the passion, the fans playing in England everyone gives 100 per cent and I think it is a great, great league."
