Thierry Henry believes he learns from every football game he watches.

Media reports this morning suggested players like Paul Dickov and Kevin Davies are among the Frenchman's heroes. That is a gross exaggeration. However the Arsenal captain and World Cup winner admits he can take things from the way they go about their work.

"I do watch games," he said. "I watch some games even in the Championship and I'm not afraid to say I look, for example, at Paul Dickov and the way he moves because he's always moving everywhere.

"For another type of game I look at Kevin Davies to see what he does to annoy players. Not in a bad way but just looking to see the situation, I put it in my brain and maybe it will pop out without me noticing I did it."
