Thierry Henry's Arsenal goalscoring record has been trimmed by one following a ruling by the Dubious Goals Panel.

Henry, who had a second spell at Arsenal when he joined on loan from New York Red Bulls in January, did not grab the Gunners' seventh in their 7-1 win over Blackburn in February.

Instead, it has now been decided that Rovers defender Scott Dann diverted the ball into his own net, meaning Henry scored two during his short-term stay this year.

So Henry now has 228 Arsenal goals, 43 clear of nearest challenger Ian Wright.
