Thierry Henry has warned Tottenham that Chelsea’s win over Everton on Sunday felt like a victory of champions.

After a goalless first half, Pedro Rodriguez, Gary Cahill and substitute Willian all struck to hand Antonio Conte’s men a 3-0 victory and leave the Blues needing three wins from their remaining four games to win the title.

Tottenham, however, kept up the pressure on Antonio Conte’s men with an impressive 2-0 victory over Arsenal at White Hart Lane to keep to within four points of the Premier League leaders.

However, Henry was particularly impressed by Chelsea’s all-round battling display at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon and feels like the Blues are going to win the title.

Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, Henry said: “That was a win of champions.

“We thought that Everton were going to have a go, especially with the way they’ve been playing at home recently.

“But I’m afraid they had a pragmatic approach and allowed Chelsea to get on the ball. Chelsea deserved to win the game it looks like they might be champions.”

Chelsea now have a full week off to prepare for their Premier League clash with Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge next Monday night.
