Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is relishing the chance to impress next season after a year of ups and downs with Arsenal.

The winger made a perfect start in his debut season for the Gunners before slipping down the pecking order in the 2012/13 campaign, starting only 11 top-flight games.

Jose Mourinho will begin his second reign as Chelsea manager on Monday with a host of key decisions to make.

The Portuguese left Real Madrid to resume control of the club he led between 2004 and 2007, winning two Premier League titles during an infamous first tenure at Stamford Bridge.

Fernandinho has revealed how he fought to secure his move to Manchester City - with a recall to the Brazil national team on his mind.

The 28-year-old midfielder has joined City from Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk for an initial transfer fee believed to be in the region of £30million after lengthy negotiations  to secure his move to the Premier League.

Robin van Persie believes there is more to come from Manchester United and has set his sights on 'many more trophies'.

United were crowned Premier League champions for a 13th time in 2012/13, with Van Persie leading the title charge in his first season at Old Trafford.

Mousa Dembele hopes Tottenham Hotspur can prevent Gareth Bale from heading out of White Hart Lane this summer.

Big-money bids are said to be in the pipeline for Tottenham's standout performer last season, but Dembele is looking for the club to stand firm and ensure that key personnel are not allowed to slip through the net.

And finally, Eric Abidal has revealed he was not offered a new contract by Barcelona because the club considered it to be too risky.

The 33-year-old Frenchman was released by the Catalan club at the end of the season just weeks after he made his comeback from a liver transplant.
