Arsene Wenger has admitted he is concerned about Arsenal's ability to deal with the impact of their latest defeat.

Tottenham's victory in Sunday's north London derby means the Gunners have taken just four points from seven matches this season against the clubs currently on course for Champions League qualification.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech insists the club must shelve thoughts of their FA Cup showdown with Manchester United when they head to Steaua Bucharest in the Europa League.

The Blues travel to Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the cup on Sunday, as they bid to keep their hopes of lifting the trophy alive, but first travel to Romania for the first leg of their last-16 clash.

Manchester City goalkeeper Eirik Holmen Johansen has joined Scunthorpe United on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old has been a regular for City's development squad, but has now joined the League One side to gain experience of first-team football.

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand will not face disciplinary action after sarcastically clapping the Turkish referee at the end of Tuesday night's Champions League game with Real Madrid.

Ferdinand was unhappy with the decision to send off Nani after 56 minutes with United in the lead - an incident that turned the tie on its head, and resulted in their exit from the competition.

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas thinks Gareth Bale is now an even better player than when he tore Inter Milan apart in 2010.

The Welsh wing wizard will face the Italian giants again when Spurs host Inter at White Hart Lane in the Europa League this evening.

And finally, Paris St Germain's Maxwell hopes to avoid Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals, if both sides progress.

The Ligue 1 leaders confirmed their place in the next round last night, while Barca must overturn a 2-0 deficit when they take on AC Milan at the Nou Camp next week.
