The upcoming FA Cup final against Chelsea could provide consolation for Arsenal, but Koscielny admitted that he would choose a top-four finish ahead of winning silverware this season. If it plays out like that on May 21, we're going to have a playoff for a Champions League place.

Arsenal continue to sit in fifth in the Premier League standings and are a point behind fourth placed Liverpool, who host already relegated Middlesbrough on the final day at Anfield.

There's one game left of the Premier League season but there could just as easily be two games left for Liverpool and Arsenal if the last day results pan out.

Among the big five, Chelsea performed by far the best in terms of value for money, as Conte's team secured the title.

They had the best of the first half, with Hector Bellerin striking the outside of the post from one of a succession of home attacks.

After Pickford had thwarted Sanchez, Xhaka and Alex Iwobi, Sanchez made sure of the points in the 81st minute, heading in after Pickford had blocked Olivier Giroud's volley.

If the key to this series is simply "home cooking", the Wizards better bring their own chefs if they return to Boston . Bradley said he was inspired by text messages he got from Thomas and Celtics' television play-by-play man Mike Gorman.

The small matter of Champions League qualification.

In such form and with a healthy goal difference in their favour, City should be confident of completing the job.

On a night of high emotion as long-serving full-back Pablo Zabaleta said farewell to the Etihad Stadium, City eased past the Baggies 3-1 with goals from Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne and Yaya Toure.

Guardiola used the final half hour to offer Pablo Zabaleta a farewell appearance in City's colours.

The Argentinian, who announced at the weekend he is leaving the club at the end of the season after nine years' service, arrived to a hero's reception as a second-half substitute.

Manchester United are to become the first club to rake in a cumulative £1bn in Premier League prize money, according to a report in The Sun.
