Arsene Wenger has urged his players to secure Champions League qualification after writing off their chances just two months ago. The Arsenal boss insists his side must now finish the job, with matches to come at home to Wigan and away to Newcastle.

Chelsea star Juan Mata revealed he's enjoyed working with interim manager Rafael Benitez despite fierce criticism from the fans. Benitez has been the focus of constant attacks from the Stamford Bridge faithful, but Mata thinks he's been a pleasure to work with since he took over from Roberto Di Matteo.

Phil Jones struggled to put into words how it felt to collect his first title Premier League winners' medal on Sunday. The United defender hopes it's the first of many and personally thanked Sir Alex Ferguson for his work since Jones joined the club from Blackburn in 2011.

Arsene Wenger admits he's disappointed to hear reports that Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini could soon be sacked. The Gunners manager thinks clubs would be better off pursuing a policy of stability, pointing to the example of Wigan Athletic under Roberto Martinez.

Manchester City are preparing a £17m bid to bring former-Chelsea winger Arjen Robben back to the Premier League. City need more width, and the Dutchman could be available as incoming coach Pep Guardiola is reportedly ready to let him go this summer.

Sandro Rosell has paid tribute to Tito Vilanova and Eric Abidal after Barcelona wrapped up another La Liga title. The Barcelona president hailed the club's achievements, and believes the Nou Camp team remain the best in the world.
