The catch-up fixture, moved from April 15 to accommodate the Chelsea's FA Cup commitments, is touted to shape the look of the top-four - and the all-important spots in next season's premier European club tournament.

Chelsea are third on 68 points - courtesy of Juan Mata's late winner against Manchester United on Sunday - while Spurs are fifth on 65 points.

Sandwiched between the two London rivals is another club from the English capital, Arsenal, on 67 points.

Serie A: Juventus - Atalanta
serie a
Atalanta will be the unwilling hosts of a title-winning party when they face newly-crowned Serie A champions Juventus on Wednesday.
Antonio Conte's team sealed their 29th league success at the weekend, as a 1-0 win over Palermo ensured they carved out an insurmountable lead at the summit.

It was the fourth title win of goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon's career and, according to the Italy number one, the best yet.

"It's a huge weight off our shoulders, a responsibility we've had from the start of the season. When you're favourites and expected to win, it's only yours to lose. We did well," he said.

"I've really enjoy ... Read more »

Simeone wants ´present´ after impressive Atletico season
Diego Simeone has called on his Atletico Madrid side to maintain their recent form and secure a spot in next season's UEFA Champions League.
Atletico currently sit in third place in La Liga, 11 points clear of Real Sociedad in fourth, and face an "awesome" 20 days according to the Argentine.

As well as four more league games, including a home tie against league leaders Barcelona, they will also contest the Copa Del Rey final against city rivals Real Madrid, something which Simeone is looking forward to.

"Everything is amazing," he said. "We have 20 days coming which are awesome because all matches have something for working up the football passion.

I´ve been better than Henry and Drogba
premier league
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud believes his debut Premier League season has been better than that of Thierry Henry and Didier Drogba.
Giroud has notched 17 goals in all competitions for Arsene Wenger's side this season, surpassing the 16 notched by Drogba in his maiden campaign in England but falling some way short of Henry's 26-goal haul.

The France international admits he has felt the pressure of filling Robin van Persie's boots since moving to the Emirates Stadium, but maintained that some criticism of his performances has been unfair, given his statistics.

He told Le10 Sport: "I replaced Van Persie and when you arrive at a big club like that, they are very demanding t ... Read more »

Lanus leapfrog Newells at the top
Lanus moved to the top of the Argentine Primera Division with a 2-1 win over Argentinos Juniors as Newell's Old Boys stumbled.
A Silvio Romero double ensured that Guillermo Barros Schelotto's side leapt to the summit on Saturday, with Matias Martinez's 81st-minute reply proving little more than a consolation for the hosts.

Newell's subsequently missed the chance to regain supremacy on Tuesday, as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal.

Dario Benetto grabbed both the goals for the Sarandi outfit, as they moved up into sixth place in the standings.

It ended honours even in the glamour fixture of the round, as Boca Juniors and River Plate played o ... Read more »

Mancini left frustrated by poor Manchester City finishing
premier league
The Italian's side beat West Brom 1-0 thanks to Edin Dzeko's volley, but their manager believes they could have had far more goals if their strikers had not wasted so many chances
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has once again expressed his irritation at his side’s inability to take their chances and make their dominance of games count.

The FA Cup finalists beat West Brom 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium thanks to a volley from Edin Dzeko, and the Italian repeated his message from earlier this week that the team’s poor finishing keeps letting them down as they failed to extend their lead against the Baggies.

"I’m frustrated because it is almost impossible to miss all the ... Read more »

Premier League: Man City 1:0 West Brom
premier league
Edin Dzeko's first-half strike helped Manchester City to an unconvincing 1-0 Premier League win over West Brom on Tuesday.
Barring a 25-minute spell before the break in which they were in complete control, City barely got going and they were thankful for West Brom's profligacy, which allowed them to take all three points from this contest at the Etihad Stadium.

Dzeko – who came off the bench to score twice in the last 10 minutes of the reverse fixture in October, which City won 2-1 – netted after 35 minutes, calmly converting a volley to give his side, who are second, a seven-point gap on the third-placed Chelsea.

With Saturday's FA Cup final against Wigan on his mind, Ci ... Read more »

Premier League: Wigan 2:3 Swansea
premier league
Wigan failed to move out of the relegation zone after Swansea City came from behind twice to win 3-2 at the DW Stadium on Tuesday evening.
The hosts dominated the first half and took the lead just before the break through Roger Espinoza. 

But Wigan's defensive frailties were exposed as Angel Rangel and Itay Shechter scored either side of a James McCarthy effort before Dwight Tiendalli snatched the winner.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez was without left-sided players Jean Beausejour and Maynor Figueroa due to injury, while Gary Caldwell returned as captain. 

Meanwhile, Michael Laudrup gave Swans ... Read more »

Ferguson to quit Old Trafford?
premier league
Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson could be on the verge of quitting Old Trafford, according to reports in the English press.
The 71-year-old – who will undergo a hip operation in the off-season – has just led Manchester United to their 20th English top-flight title.

Ferguson, who has been in charge for 13 of those successes, only recently claimed that he would be at the club for some time yet, but reports that began to emerge on Tuesday suggest that Ferguson is considering walking away from the club he has been at for 27 years.

The Telegraph said that the club's golf day on Tuesday was marred with talk that Ferguson would announce he was to walk away from his post befo ... Read more »

Balotelli faces fine for shirt-off celebration
Mario Balotelli will be fined for removing his shirt after scoring the late winner in Milan's 1-0 victory against Torino on Sunday.
Massimiliano Allegri's side looked set to drop two crucial points in the fight for a UEFA Champions League berth before Balotelli's late intervention stole a win that leaves Milan four points clear of third-placed Fiorentina with three games to play.

But the striker was booked for his celebration, something which the club are keen to avoid a repeat of.

"As long as he scores more goals than the shirts he takes off then that is OK," Milan vice president Adriano Galliani said.

"But taking your shirt off is not acceptable and he wil ... Read more »

FIFA impose Blazer ban
FIFA executive committee member Chuck Blazer has been provisionally banned for financial mismanagement as secretary-general of CONCACAF.
Blazer stepped down as CONCACAF secretary-general in December 2011 and was set to be replaced on FIFA's ExCo by fellow American Sunil Galati at the end of May.

The decision by FIFA's Ethics Committee to provisionally ban Blazer from 'any kind of football-related activity' for 90 days means the 68-year-old New Yorker's involvement in football administration looks to be over.

FIFA released a statement on Monday, explaining that ethics committee chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert had decided to suspend Blazer because of alleged fraud during his time in charge of CONCACAF, the governing body of footba ... Read more »

Aberdeen´s Pawlett charged for Dundee ´dive´
The Scottish Football Association has accused Aberdeen winger Peter Pawlett of diving to win the penalty that relegated Dundee on Sunday.
The SFA confirmed on Monday that Pawlett had been issued with a notice of complaint and has until Thursday to respond.

The 22-year-old faces a two-match ban if he accepts the charge or he can take the issue to a judicial panel hearing on May 16.

Dundee needed three points to remain in the Scottish Premier League but had to settle for one after Pawlett went down under a challenge from Lewis Toshney and Niall McGinn converted the resulting spot-kick to earn a 1-1 draw.

Dundee manager John Brown said: "It was a blatant dive. ... Read more »

Dortmund edged past Real Madrid to seal their place in the Wembley showpiece, while Bayern sent shockwaves around Europe with their 7-0 aggregate demolition of Barcelona in the last four.

And Vidic believes both teams fully deserve to have progressed to the final after some high-octane showings, hinting that United should adopt a similar approach to ensure success in Europe.

"Credit to Bayern. I think they play very good football," he told MUTV.

We must beat QPR
premier league
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew believes his side's trip to QPR on Saturday is a must-win as they bid to avoid relegation.
The St. James' Park outfit could be in the Premier League's bottom three by the time the weekend comes around, if Wigan beat Swansea City on Tuesday.

Pardew's side have been in horrendous form recently, winning just one of their last nine matches in all competitions.

Included in that run have been heavy defeats to Liverpool, Manchester City, Sunderland and Benfica – all matches in which they have conceded three goals or more – and things are beginning to look ominous.

Leverkusen braced for Schuerrle bids
bundesligaBayer Leverkusen general manager Wolfgang Holzhauser says it is likely Andre Schuerrle has signed a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea.
Schuerrle has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and Holzhauser revealed the Bundesliga club are considering an offer from Chelsea for the 22-year-old.

Holzhauser said Leverkusen will assess their options before making a decision on the bid but expects an arrangement is already in place between the player and the west London club.

Chelsea reportedly had a bid turned down last year for Schuerrle, who is contracted to Leverkusen until the end of the 2015/16 season.

West Brom are due a big result
premier leagueWest Brom midfielder James Morrison has claimed the club are "due a big result" ahead of their meeting with Manchester City.
Steve Clarke's side have never won at the Etihad Stadium and face a City team who have lost just once at home all season - a 3-2 reverse at the hands of champions Manchester United - on Tuesday.

But Morrison says his team-mates are excited by the challenge facing them.

"Obviously, it will be really tough game," he told the club's official website. "All we can do is go there and enjoy it.

Norwich´s Kamara call bemuses Vermes
premier league
Sporting Kansas City manager Peter Vermes admitted he was surprised at Kei Kamara's return to the club.
The striker – who made 11 Premier League appearances for Norwich City on loan, scoring one goal – left England after playing in the club's 2-1 home defeat against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The loan deal did have an option for Norwich to sign the player permanently, but they declined to exercise that clause, allowing the 28-year-old Sierra Leone international to return to his parent club.

Sporting Kansas City top the Eastern Conference of the MLS on goal difference and with Kamara back involved in the squad, Vermes was buoyant about the club's hopes.

Moyes wants more England caps for Jagielka
premier league
Everton boss David Moyes has heaped praise on Phil Jagielka and urged England manager Roy Hodgson to pick him more often.
Jagielka has made 30 or more Premier League appearances in five of his six seasons at Everton and his consistency at the back has been a key reason in the club's comparative success.

The 30-year-old defender has made 16 appearances for England but should be a regular according to Moyes, particularly after the retirement of John Terry.

"When you look at the situation with England at the moment, it's there for Jags to go and say 'pick me'," Moyes said.

"He was top drawer at Anfield and ... Read more »

Liverpool lose Gerrard for the season
premier league
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will miss the remainder of the season after electing to undergo surgery on a long-standing shoulder injury.
The midfielder has been a virtual ever-present in the 2012-13 Premier League campaign, missing just 22 minutes of action - all after being substituted late into his side's 6-0 win over Newcastle last month.

However, Gerrard has been playing through the pain barrier of late, with the club's official website revealing the injury had "progressively worsened" over time.

Liverpool have just two games remaining in the Premier League this season, with a trip to Fulham on Sunday followed by a clash with QPR at Anfield a week later. ... Read more »

Liverpool must start better
premier league
Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes it is vital that his team-mates make a better start to their 2013-14 Premier League campaign.
The Merseyside club won just two of their first 11 league fixtures this term, a run which virtually ended their hopes of a top-four finish before the turn of the year.

However, with results having improved since and manager Brendan Rodgers increasingly settled in the dugout, the 35-year-old believes Liverpool can get off on the right foot next time out.

"Looking at the season, if you remember at the start it was difficult because of the transfer window situation," he said.
