Thierry Henry sends message to Tottenham about Chelsea
Thierry Henry explains why he is expecting to see Chelsea win the title after their 3-0 victory at Everton
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.
The Blues will also take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley later this month.
