Thierry Henry is backing Chelsea to secure a 2-1 win over Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues head into the game having seen their lead at the top of the Premier League table cut down to four points following Tottenham’s win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Nevertheless, Chelsea are still the heavy favourites to win the Premier League title this season and head into the game on the back of their 3-1 win over Bournemouth last weekend.

And Arsenal legend Henry is expecting Chelsea to have too much for Jose Mourinho’s men on Sunday afternoon as they look to beat Manchester United for the third time this season.

Speaking on Soccer AM on Saturday morning, Henry bluntly said: “I say 2-1 Chelsea tomorrow.”

Manchester United head into the game on the back of their 1-1 draw with Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday night.
