Thierry Henry has given his verdict on the key game in the Premier League title race between Leicester and Spurs.

Both sides must play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but Arsenal legend Henry, who was no stranger to titles during his time in north London, believes Spurs' visit to West London could be crucial in deciding the trophy's destination.

Henry's prediction 

Speaking to Sky Sports, Henry said: "The Chelsea game is key".

"If they win at Stamford Bridge then it's game on, because I don't see them then losing other games. But Chelsea are going to try and play really hard against Tottenham."

Chelsea' rivalry with the Lilywhites could lead them to raise their game against Spurs in a way that they might not necessarily do on the final day against Leicester.

Chelsea still playing a role

Henry's former team-mate, Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, has openly said he does not want to see their London rivals crowned champions, and his team could have a huge part to play in the title race despite their own underwhelming season.

With that in mind, Spurs must ensure they overcome that fixture, particularly as they are favourites to win their other three games against West Brom, Southampton and Newcastle.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have a dreadful record at Stamford Bridge, but for the first time in a long time, they will go into the game as favourites against a below-par Chelsea.

If they can win that game, Leicester's nerves will surely be jangling going into the final fortnight.
