Arsene Wenger has admitted it was frustrating to lose to Tottenham Hotspur but rejected suggestions of a power shift in north London.

Arsenal's 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane on Sunday has left the Gunners seven points behind Spurs in the race for a top four finish this season.

Andre Villas-Boas hailed an important win for his Tottenham players, but insisted they would not be taking anything for granted as they seek to secure Champions League qualification.

Goals from Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon moved Spurs back into third place in the Premier League table with ten games remaining.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech was delighted with the support Blues fans gave their team during the 1-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

The keeper had an excellent afternoon, making a string of decent saves in a game in which the fans' behaviour was under as much media scrutiny as the players.

Carlos Tevez claims he is a different man to the one that walked out on Manchester City and has his family to thank for the turnaround.

Tevez is striving to re-established himself with the City faithful after he went AWOL for several months last season and admits he is much happier now with his loved ones by his side in England.

Wayne Rooney says he is feeling 'fresh and ready for battle' for Manchester United ahead of Real Madrid's visit to Old Trafford.

United entertain Real in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 on Tuesday, with the tie delicately poised after a 1-1 draw in Madrid three weeks ago.

And finally, Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has played down concerns over the club's slump in form.

Barca crashed to their third defeat in four games when they lost to bitter rivals Real Madrid on Saturday for the second time in four days.
