Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester United put a huge dent on our quest to be in the Champions League next season.
The Blues are currently 5th on the table, two points behind Tottenham in 4th, four points behind Liverpool and six points behind Manchester United.
Up next for Chelsea is an away clash against Manchester City, and Thierry Henry believes a poor result at the Etihad will all but end Chelsea’s top four chances.
“It’s going to be a fight,” he told Sky Sports.
“I think four weeks ago I said Chelsea would be challenging for second and look at where they are right now.
“They had their trouble obviously, losing back-to-back games recently, especially at home against Bournemouth. The 3-0 defeat was a tough one to take.
“But it looks like it’s going to be a battle between Tottenham and Chelsea.
“The way the two teams are playing right now, you would back Tottenham to be in the top four instead of Chelsea.
“But because of the teams that they are playing right now Chelsea, it’s a bit difficult to judge.
“They need to go and win at City, it’s going to be a difficult one.
“Tottenham might make the gap even bigger, so we will see what’s going to happen.”
