Manchester United 2:1 Swansea
premier league
Rio Ferdinand's late winner ensured Alex Ferguson's final match in charge at Old Trafford ended in victory for Manchester United.
The Premier League champions put in an impressive display in the first half and led thanks to Javier Hernandez, but Swansea were immensely improved after half-time and a Michu strike looked to have secured a point for the visitors, only for Ferdinand to hit an 87th-minute winner.

Given United's record under Ferguson of scoring late goals that decide crucial games, it was a fitting way for the Scot to bow out on home soil. 

Ferguson's side included seven changes to the team that lost 1-0 to Chelsea last weekend as Paul Scholes started his f ... Read more »

Norwich 4:0 West Brom
premier league
Norwich secured Premier League football for 2013-14 with a 4-0 win over West Brom at Carrow Road on Sunday.
Goals from Robert Snodgrass, Grant Holt and Jonny Howson, as well as a Gareth McAuley own goal, were enough for the home side as they won only their third game in 2013 and ended a run of two straight defeats.

After Aston Villa's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday, Norwich are now one point ahead of Villa and six ahead of Wigan, with the latter having two games left to play. 

But with those two sides meeting in the final game of the season next Sunday, only one is able to reach the 41-point mark Norwich already have.

Fulham 1:3 Liverpool
premier leagueDaniel Sturridge's hat-trick helped Liverpool to a convincing 3-1 Premier League win over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
The former Chelsea man was the star of the show with all three goals for his side to once again prove his value, as the Anfield outfit ran out convincing victors.

Dimitar Berbatov had opened the scoring for the hosts 12 minutes before the interval, but they were almost immediately pegged back by Sturridge's powerful shot inside the box. 

And the 23-year-old subsequently grabbed his second with a cool side-footed finish in the second half before, after missing a host of good chances to secure a third, he finally rounded off the result with a cl ... Read more »

Sunderland 1:1 Southampton
premier league
Jason Puncheon came off the bench to rescue a point for Southampton against fellow strugglers Sunderland.
Puncheon came on for Adam Lallana just minutes after Phil Bardsley had opened the scoring for the home side with a well-taken strike. 

Craig Gardner's red card against Stoke last week meant that Bardsley was handed a start in defence, allowing Jack Colback to play a more advanced role in midfield.

Danny Rose played what could be his last game for Sunderland, as he is ineligible to face parent club Tottenham on the final day of the season next weekend. 

Southampton also made just one change ... Read more »

Everton 2:0 West Ham
premier league
Everton gave outgoing manager David Moyes the perfect Goodison Park farewell with a convincing 2-0 win over West Ham on Sunday.
A pair of goals from Kevin Mirallas gave Everton their sixth home Premier League win in succession, as Moyes' side ensured they would finish above local rivals Liverpool for the second season in a row, a feat that had not been achieved since 1937.

Moyes – who will leave Merseyside to replace Alex Ferguson at Manchester United in the off-season – used his notes in the official programme to thank the Everton supporters, and he was afforded a terrific reception by the packed crowd prior to kick-off.

But once the whistle blew, it was just how Moyes w ... Read more »

Juve drop points to Cagliari
serie a
Champions Juventus avoided defeat at home to Cagliari thanks to a second-half Mirko Vucinic goal.
Segundo Guerrero put Cagliari ahead on 12 minutes in what will have been a shock to the newly-crowned Scudetto holders on a day when they were presented with their trophy.

However, Mirko Vucinic levelled for Juventus on 61 minutes in a result which had little effect on the Serie A standings as a whole.

Bottom side and already-relegated Pescara were unable to secure their seventh win of the season, narrowly losing out to ninth-place Catania at the Stadio Angelo Massimino.

Alejandro Gomez grabbed the only goal of the ... Read more »

Espanyol 1:1 Real Madrid
SpainGonzalo Higuain rescued Real Madrid with an equaliser against Espanyol, but the 1-1 draw handed Barcelona their 22nd league title.
The Argentina international rose to meet a Luka Modric free-kick just before the hour to cancel out Christian Stuani's first-half opener, however Madrid's failure to secure all three points meant the La Liga title headed to Catalonia.

With the Copa del Rey final a week away, Jose Mourinho made five changes to the side that convincingly beat Malaga. Ricardo Carvalho, Angel Di Maria, Kaka, Alvaro Morata and Higuain all came in as the manager aimed to rest some key players for the showdown with Atletico Madrid.

We didn´t deserve to lose
Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini doesn't feel that his side deserved to lose the FA Cup final against Wigan.
City lost 1-0 to Roberto Martinez's men thanks to a late Ben Watson goal, but their manager believes that while his side were not at their best, they were still unfortunate not to win the match.

Mancini, who will end the season without having won a trophy, said his team's inability to take the chances they created is what cost them.

"I'm disappointed. We conceded a goal in the last seconds in a game where we didn't play very well, but we didn't deserve to lose. But that's football," he told BBC 5 Live.

"We started slowly but we had two incredible ... Read more »

McMananman ´made-up´ after Wigan FA Cup shock

Speaking after his man-of-the-match performance, McManaman told BBC Five Live: "I'm made up. I had a feeling this morning that it was our day. The longer it went on, we had the better chances. Before the game the gaffer said 'treat it like a normal game, don't be afraid'. I still can't believe it.

"This is the best feeling. We deserved this, and we're off to celebrate it now."

Wigan weren´t lucky to win FA Cup
fa cup

Martinez's men went into the game as firm underdogs but came out winners thanks to Ben Watson's 90th-minute header, which came after Pablo Zabaleta had been sent off.

And the Spaniard says Wigan's "incredible" performance, not good fortune, was the reason behind their first trophy win since lifting the Second Division title in 2003.

"In any final you feel the result could go either way. We were playing an incredible side. We didn't win by luck - from start to finish it was an incre ... Read more »
