West Ham dent Spurs title bid with derby win

But Spurs' nine-match winning streak in the league, coupled with defeats for the Blues by Crystal Palace and Manchester United, gave them hope of a first title since 1961. There was no improvement in the second half and Ayew, left unmarked 18 yards out, should have made them pay as he blasted over. West Ham , the first team to stop Tottenham scoring since Liverpool in early February, moved up to ninth with 42 points and is now mathematically safe from relegation. Read More

Spurs beats Man United in stadium finale to secure 2nd spot

Arsenal's late surge had put Juergen Klopp's side under enormous pressure but they responded in style and will definitely finish in the top-four if they beat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield on the final day of the season next Sunday.

Titles more important than top four to Manchester United, says Mourinho

He added: "We won a League Cup". Mourinho shrugged off any disappointment surrounding a probable sixth-place finish for his EFL Cup winners - United have not finished lower since David Moyes' shambolic tenure in the 2013-14 season. For Jose Mourinho's men though, they won't be thinking too much about sentimentality, hoping that they can put together a performance that gives them three points which keeps them in with an outside chance of reaching the top four in the English Premier League.

Arsene Wenger Dismisses Impact of Top Four Miss On Transfer Plans

The Reds secured a comprehensive 4-0 win at the Olympic Stadium to put one foot into the Champions League next season, but Wenger was clearly unimpressed with the Hammers, if he did indeed mean them when making the comment below.

Ancelotti revels in 'crazy' Bayern comeback at Leipzig

Ancelotti revels in 'crazy' Bayern comeback at Leipzig

Naturally we expect more of him with his qualities, but it is not easy for a young player to adjust to a new country, a new style of play. But Costa will feel as though he's shown enough to be worthy of a regular starting spot at an elite club, and given Juventus lack a natural left-sided winger, he would surely see a lot of game time in Turin if the transfer went ahead.
