Thierry Henry: Arsenal will worry Premier League leaders Chelsea if they beat them

Thierry Henry insists Arsenal will put doubt into Jose Mourinho's side if they beat Chelsea in their next Premier League match, after reducing the gap at the top to just four points.
Arsenal's 1-0 win at Burnley was their eighth straight league success, though Chelsea have two games in hand over their London rivals, starting with QPR at Loftus Road on Super Sunday.
But Henry, who admits Arsenal must win every game from now until the end of the season to have a chance of claiming a first title since 2004, refused to rule out a comeback, and says the Gunners' star men are having to perform roles they may not like for the good of the team.
The Sky Sports pundit said on Saturday Night Football: "If they beat Chelsea, they will put some doubt in their mind. But there is one thing I want to go back to what Aaron Ramsey said.
"He said, and we clearly understood because he said it two or three times, that he doesn't like it much playing on the right of midfield. But this will do a job for the team.
"The run they are on is because they are doing things they don’t like, but they do it for the team.
"That's why they are doing what they are doing, and maybe why they didn’t perform at the start of the season because they were not doing it."
Chelsea travel to the Emirates on April 26 after hosting an in-form Manchester United the weekend before.
Another former Arsenal star, Alan Smith, agreed with Henry, insisting the title race is not done and dusted yet.
Smith said: "They have to beat [Chelsea] if they are going to win the league, and that will put doubt in the mind of Jose Mourinho’s players.
"The way they’re playing, they’ve got more than enough going forward to make chances and score. Even against a defence like Chelsea’s.
"But they can’t afford any slip-ups you would probably say because you really cannot see Chelsea dropping many other points."
