Beleaguered Manchester United manager David Moyes still believes his side are capable of securing a top-four finish this season.

Following last night's uneventful stalemate with Arsenal, the Red Devils now find themselves a massive 11 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, who secured a dramatic 3-2 victory over Fulham thanks to a late Steven Gerrard penalty.

Moyes believes there is no better team at winning games in the second-half of the season than Manchester United.

That was certainly the case under Sir Alex Ferguson, but whether the same rule applies under Moyes is another matter.

Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson admits it will be difficult for Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole to earn a place in his England squad for the 2014 World Cup finals.

The 33-year-old has lost his place in the first team at Stamford Bridge to Cesar Azpilicueta, who is a right-back by trade - and reports suggest Hodgson will call up Southampton's Luke Shaw for next month's international friendly against Denmark, offering the 18-year-old the chance to take Cole's place on the plane to Brazil.

Elsewhere, Barcelona will play fierce rivals Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey final following last night's 1-1 draw away at Real Sociedad.

Lionel Messi scored another fantastic goal to effectively seal the tie in Barca's favour, while a late equaliser from Antoine Griezmann proved little more than a consolation.

And finally, great news for British boxing fans: the planned rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves will definitely go ahead after a date was confirmed.

The duo will go head-to-head on May 31st at a football stadium, with Old Trafford, the Emirates Stadium and the City Ground all mooted as potential venues.
