Chelsea captain John Terry admits he is unsure if he will be fit for Wednesday's Europa League final against Benfica.

Terry was stretchered off during Chelsea's win at Aston Villa on Saturday and is sweating on a scan on his injured ankle to see if he will be fit for the final in Amsterdam.

Pablo Zabaleta has urged Manchester City to return next season with a 'better mentality' amid speculation Roberto Mancini is on the brink of being sacked.

City's shock FA Cup final defeat by Wigan Athletic on Saturday prevented Mancini from steering his team to a third trophy in as many seasons.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes credited retiring manager Sir Alex Ferguson as the pair said goodbye to Old Trafford by beating Swansea 2-1.

The veteran midfielder, 38, played over an hour of the game and received a rapturous reception from the Red Devils fans having helped the club to 11 Premier League titles.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas hailed his side's late win at Stoke to keep alive their hopes of a top-four finish.

Emmanuel Adebayor's late goal sent Spurs into fourth spot above bitter rivals Arsenal although they have played a game more than Arsene Wenger's side.

Arsene Wenger has revealed he told his Arsenal staff "a long time ago" that he thought this season would be Sir Alex Ferguson's last as Manchester United manager.

The Gunners boss said he detected some signs, and respects Ferguson's decision to retire. 

And finally, Barcelona capped their title celebrations with a comeback win at Atletico Madrid that was only soured by an injury to Lionel Messi.

Barca were confirmed as champions on Saturday night when Real Madrid could only draw at Espanyol, but saw star man Messi limp off after 67 minutes.
