Thierry Henry’s response when asked if he wants Tottenham to beat Chelsea

The former Arsenal striker can't find it within him to support Tottenham against Chelsea on Wednesday night

Thierry Henry has revealed that he won’t be cheering on Tottenham Hotspur against Chelsea on Wednesday night despite Arsenal needing a Spurs win to boost their title prospects.

The Gunners missed the chance to move to within six points of the Premier League leaders on Tuesday night after Arsenal played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

While Arsene Wenger’s were credited for coming from 3-0 down to rescue a point on the south coast, Chelsea can now moved 11 points clear of Arsenal if Antonio Conte’s beat Tottenham on Wednesday night.

The Blues are looking to equal Arsenal’s record of 14 successive Premier League victories at White Hart Lane which the Gunners set during Henry’s career at the north London club.

Asked whether the France legend would be supporting Tottenham through gritted teeth on Wednesday night, Henry told Sky Sports:

“I won’t be! But maybe they [the Arsenal players] will be. That would be too much for me!”
