The second half started slow for Arsenal and they punished once again by Jamie Vardy who headed the fifth goal of the game with a well taken header after he was left unmarked.
But speaking after the dust had settled on the weekend's action, Henry, now a Sky Sports analyst, was less than complimentary about the Arsenal display.
In six previous visits to the bet365 Stadium Arsenal had failed to beat the Potters, but that run changed last season when they secured an emphatic 4-1 win.
'Maybe my attitude had an impact on our season, because, at one point, the players came to me and asked me, "what is going on, boss?"
"We let in some goals we could have avoided but we'll work to ensure we don't concede any more like that during the season".
"Please tell me she got a proper photo as well." asked a fellow Arsenal fan.
So as fans cried out for a world-class 30-goal-a-season striker, they had to make do with a very good 20-goal-a-season man. Obviously I am going to be biased because he is French and he plays for Arsenal but I like his overall play. He plays in a fairly traditional centre-forward way, bringing others into play brilliantly at times (a part of his game which is quite underrated). As they exchanged pleasantries, the man - who had immediately recognised him - asked him if he appreciated how significant a presence the Premier League was in the country's daily life.
The Frenchman was pleased with his goal-scoring introduction to the Premier League but admits he still has a long way to go before he is up to speed with English football.
