Mustafi says Champions League still in Gunners' sights

Leaders since November, Chelsea face a pleasingly straightforward equation at West Bromwich Albion tomorrow: win and they will be Premier League champions.

As we entered the last game of the season, Manchester City were in pole position to be crowned champions, with Liverpool right on our heels in second place. We knew that coming here is not easy.

Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney is available at 21/10 (3.10) to come back to haunt a Spurs defence he has beaten 10 times in the past, having hit the back of the net in two of his last four Premier League appearances. It would wrap up the title-chase before Tottenham Hotspur, who are seven points behind the Blues, take the field at home to Manchester United on Sunday.

It would equal the club record and set a new mark for successive home league wins within the same campaign.

Calciomercato believe that Fabregas could move to Chelsea's Premier League rivals Manchester United or Liverpool.


'It is different to fight for top four than to play to win a European competition, ' he said ahead of Thursday's match at Old Trafford. It's probably the greatest league in the world at the moment.

However, City's good form and game in hand means they should pull clear of Arsenal and Liverpool, whilst Jose Mourinho appears to have placed all his eggs in the Europa League basket.

It's just as tight down the bottom, with Middlesbrough's relegation on Monday leaving Hull and Swansea scrambling to avoid the drop.

"This squad of boys, the core is special and we need to dig deep now", former Dundee United left-back Andy Robertson told Tigers TV, Hull's in-house television channel.

One thing is for sure - we could be in for the most dramatic finale yet.
