GiveMeSport Football report - May 8

Louis van Gaal has described Manchester United as 'the biggest club in the world' and would love the manager's job at Old Trafford.

United are not expected to name their new boss until after the weekend, but Van Gaal is the overwhelming favourite to succeed David Moyes.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has undergone successful surgery on his dislocated shoulder injury.

The 31-year-old will be out of action for the next eight to 10 weeks, meaning he should be fit for the start of pre-season training in the summer.

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has urged his team-mates to remain focused despite moving to the brink of the title with Wednesday's 4-0 win over Aston Villa.

City's superior goal difference over Liverpool means they can claim their second Premier League crown with a draw at home to West Ham on the final day of the season.

Brendan Rodgers says the pain of seemingly throwing away the title will be a good learning experience for Liverpool.

Despite the recent disappointment the Reds boss believes the club have taken great strides forward by qualifying for the Champions League, and remains optimistic about the future.
