But a video message from former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson stole the show.
French League giants Lyon are reportedly close to naming Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger as their new manager after the exit of Brazilian boss Sylvinho.
"It's a situation where suddenly you get a really good victory, you get confidence back in the side".
As mentioned earlier, Thierry Henry also praised his former manager, who lifted 17 trophies during his time with Arsenal.
The £350k-a-week German World Cup victor has been axed out of Unai Emery's last three matchday squads with the Gunners boss admitting other players "deserve it more". But that's well deserved for you - for what you have done for the game.
"It's not easy today as everyone expects instant success, and you can see what has happened to other club around us".
"For me that would be enough.
I am a supporter of Arsenal Football Club so I just support [Emery] and hope that he can win games and plays a type of game that I like", he said.
"Love you as always and enjoy the night".
I remember the day that he first walked into the Arsenal training ground as if it was yesterday. "After that I'm as well a professional you know, I can not stop to work because of that", he told Sky Sports.
Arsenal signed Nicolas Pepe in the summer transfer window and he's had a slow start to his career in North London as the fans have already started getting scared that he might not adapt to the demands of the Premier League.
"I remember working with Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe: they know everything about football".
