Thierry Henry replies when asked if Arsenal can catch Chelsea

Thierry Henry has his say on Arsenal's hopes of winning the Premier League title this season

Thierry Henry believes that Arsenal are capable of catching Chelsea in the race for the Premier League title this season.

The Gunners moved up to second place in the Premier League table on Sunday after their dramatic 2-1 win over Burnley at The Emirates.

Chelsea, however, soon responded with a 2-0 victory over Hull City at Stamford Bridge as the Blues moved eight points clear at the top of the table.

The west London side are the firm favourites to win the Premier League title this season but their credentials are set to be tested when they take on Liverpool and Arsenal in their next two games.

Henry feels that Arsenal now head into their clash with the Blues on 4 February potentially able to claw their way back into the title race.

Asked if Arsenal can catch Chelsea in the race for the title, Henry told Sky Sports on Sunday: “Can they? It’s going to be a difficult one.

“From what I’ve seen, it’s going to be a difficult [but] they’ve put themselves in the position where they can battle at the Bridge and see what happens next.”
