Former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars likens Gareth Bale to Thierry Henry.

Former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars has likened Gareth Bale to Thierry Henry.

Bale has been Tottenham Hotspur's outstanding player this season scoring 15 goals in the process, and Overmars, who won the Premier League and the FA Cup with the
Gunners, has compared him to his former teammate Henry.

"I'd compare him with Thierry Henry," Overmars told

"He's got such speed that even after 30 yards, he can still run faster. It makes a lot of difference when you have that kind of power.

"He's an athlete who can play good football and has great technique, so he can play anywhere in the world."

Spurs host their local rivals in today's North London derby.
