Mikel Arteta thinks the dramatic nature of Saturday's victory over Norwich will have a major impact ahead of the final six games of the season. The Gunners trailed until the 86th minute, before three late goals overturned the deficit, and Arteta believes Arsenal can now push for the top four.

Nemanja Vidic expects another tough test on Wednesday when the Reds travel to London to face West Ham. United emerged from a bruising encounter at Stoke with a 2-0 win, and Vidic expects more of the same against the Hammers this week.

David Luiz felt Chelsea created enough on Sunday to warrant extra-time following their 2-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat. Luiz conceded Manchester City were the better side for the 45 minutes, but felt his side fought back well and deserved another 30 minutes.

Gareth Barry hailed Manchester City's "massive effort" as they progressed to the FA Cup final at Wembley. The England international thinks City have a fantastic chance of winning the trophy for the second time in three seasons when they play Wigan next month.

Tottenham will face competition from Paris St Germain and Monaco for Porto playmaker Joao Moutinho, according to new reports. Spurs came close to signing the Portugal international last August, but Monaco now lead the race for the £20m-rated midfielder.

Barcelona have now gone 300 games in a row with more than 50 per cent possession after their 3-0 victory over Zaragoza. Tito Vilanova's side controlled 64 per cent of the ball on Sunday, extending a run that stretches back to 2009.
