Manchester United have sacked David Moyes less than one season into his six-year contract and put Ryan Giggs in charge until a permanent replacement is appointed.

The Red Devils confirmed Moyes' departure on their Twitter feed at around 8:30 on Tuesday morning, although reports of his imminent exit had been circulating for almost 24 hours.

Jose Mourinho's tactical acumen will be the difference between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, according to David Luiz.

The former Real Madrid boss returns to the Spanish capital tonight for the first leg of Chelsea's Champions League semi-final, and the Brazilian defender is confident Mourinho's masterplan will lead them to a third successive European final.

Elsewhere, Per Mertesacker believes the return of some leading players from injury will give Arsenal impetus to finish the season strongly.

Injuries have been a major factor behind the Gunners struggles this season, but the German is confident Arsene Wenger's charges can secure fourth place.

And finally, Manchester City will assess David Silva's ankle injury later on Tuesday, amid fears he could miss the Premier League title run-in.

Silva was stretchered off during the second half of Monday's 3-1 win over West Brom after appearing to suffer a recurrence of a recent problem.
