Thierry Henry feels that Chelsea have the required quality to win the treble this seasonReuters

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has backed Chelsea's chances of winning the treble this season, following their triumph in the Capital One Cup on Sunday.

The Blues beat London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to lift their first piece of silverware in the form of the League Cup since their triumph in the Europa League in 2013.

Apart from that, Chelsea were also handed a boost in the Premier League title race after their nearest rivals Manchester City were beaten 1-2 at Liverpool. City's defeat at Anfield means that the Blues now have a good chance to increase the gap between themselves and the Citizens to eight points.

The Blues also have a good chance to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League, having recorded a 1-1 draw during their round of 16 first leg clash against PSG in France.

And Henry, who is currently working as a pundit for Sky Sports, sees no reason why Chelsea cannot win the Premier League and Champions League and completed the treble this season.

"I think they can. They have all of the quality required to win the treble," the former NY Red Bulls striker told Sky Sports.

The 37-year-old feels that Chelsea will go all the way in the Champions League if they manage to get past PSG in the second leg of the round of sixteen on 12 March.

"I'm so eager to see that game against Paris Saint-Germain. That will be massive. If they beat PSG, you have to go through maybe Bayern Munich, then Real Madrid and Barcelona. Time will tell. But that PSG game will be a massive task for them," he said.

Henry says that he was especially impressed by Chelsea performance in the League Cup, considering they were recently beaten 3-5 by the Spurs in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.

"He (Mourinho) came to do a job with his team and they did it," added the Frenchman. "They don't defend because they have to – they love and enjoy to defend. They live to defend, you can see that every time, that's why most of the time they play a final they end up winning it."
