Thierry Henry delivers his verdict on Chelsea in the title race

Thierry Henry says Chelsea are the team to beat in the race for the Premier League title this season.

The Blues underlined their status as genuine Premier League title contenders this season when they came from a goal down to beat Manchester City 3-1 at The Etihad on Saturday afternoon.

The west London side are aiming to bounce back after the disappointment of their 10th placed finish in the top flight last season following Jose Mourinho’s sacking last December.

And Chelsea are certainly showing themselves to be genuine contenders for the title under new boss Antonio Conte.

Speaking after Saturday’s game, Arsenal legend Henry explained why Chelsea are the team to beat in the Premier League at the moment.

Henry told Sky Sports: “It is vital. We couldn’t see that [coming from behind] before the way they played against Liverpool and Arsenal.

“Are they the team to beat? At the moment, yes.

“They’re definitely the team to chase. When you’re top, that’s what happens.”

Chelsea have won their last eight games in the Premier League in a row and are currently leading the way at the top of the Premier League table.


  1. Chelsea are on a roll,but it seems they are not getting ahead of themselves just yet,such is the mentality Conte has instilled in the team,everyone seems to be putting 100% even Costa is playing clean….so I have to agree with Thierry,I don’t see why they won’t go all the way. #KTBFFH
