Thierry Henry helped himself to a double as the New York Red Bulls moved top of the MLS Western Conference with a 4-0 win at DC United.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona striker, who scored his first goal for the club against San Jose last weekend, opened the scoring in the 12th minute and then doubled his side's lead seven minutes before the interval.

Further goals from Joel Lindpere and substitute Juan Agudelo put a seal on the win as United pushed numbers forward in search of a lifeline.

Agudelo's goal, an improvised flick and volley in the one motion, would have impressed team-mate Henry, given its resemblence of his famous strike against Manchester United in his Arsenal heyday.
