Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has claimed the Premier League is not a fair reflection of how his team has played.

The Italian praised Manchester United for going 18 games unbeaten and agreed they deserve to be top but said the difference between the teams isn’t as much as 15 points.

New Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal has put his good start in the Premier League down to the belief of Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners boss loaned out Brazilian flop Andre Santos as soon as he had signed the Spain international and threw him straight into the team – something Monreal says has given him great confidence.

Chelsea captain John Terry has warned his teammates there can be no let up when they return to the grind of the Premier League after a good Europa League win.

The Blues defender said focus must entirely be on the clash with Sunderland as Champions League qualification is essential.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has been named Premier League Player of the Month for March.

The Belgium international scored three Premier League goals in the month – only Luis Suarez of Liverpool scored more.

Barcelona assistant coach Jordi Roura has revealed no date has been set for Lionel Messi’s return from injury.

The Argentine star was taken off at half-time in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final first leg with a hamstring injury and Roura said they will just have to wait and see if the top scorer will be available for the second leg.
