Arsenal legend Thierry Henry will have only have to make do with scoring two goals in his return to the Emirates after the Dubious Goals Panel ruled his goal against Blackburn to be an own-goal by defender Scott Dann.
The Gunners were definitely on song this match putting seven passed lowly Blackburn way back on the 4th of February with Robin van Persie scoring a hat-trick and new boy Oxlade-Chamberlain getting a brace.
It was a fairy-tale come true when Henry came off the bench and played a neat one-two with Dutchman Robin van Persie and coolly slotted the ball into the back of the net for Arsenal’s final goal.
But it seems it was not meant to be as the deflection off Scott Dann proved to be enough for the Panel to deem the goal an own-goal and not credit it to the Arsenal legend.
With the goal no longer credited to his name, Henry’s goal-scoring record as the highest all-time Arsenal goal-scorer decreases to 228. Of course he still tops the list though!
Anyway, below is a video of the ‘own-goal’ scored by Scott Dann. I have no idea about the rules surrounding dubious goals, but I know who I think the goal should be credited to! What do you guys think? Feel free to leave a comment below!
