  5. Benitez - 'Pre-season plans under way'

    Newcastle v Chelsea (Sun, 15:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Good news for Newcastle supporters hoping that Rafael Benitez remains with the club next season regardless of what happens with the club's ownership.

    He's already planning for pre-season.

    "I said so many times, it has been a great season," he said. "At the beginning, the target was to stay up. To do that with five games to go is amazing.

    “The key has been the unity and togetherness between fans, players and staff, and the work-rate of the players.

    “We need to finish on a high. The team deserve that and the fans need to see that at home.

    “We will return to pre-season in July and go to Ireland. It’s all organised."

  6. Has anyone seen Rooney?


    We haven't heard anything about Wayne Rooney for a while have we?

    Anyone seen him?

  7. Ferguson - 'Family touched by well wishes'

    Image caption: Darren Ferguson said his family "continue to request privacy during this vital period of recovery.”

    Sir Alex Ferguson's son, Darren, has thanked fans for their support following the illness of the former Manchester United manager.

    The Doncaster Rovers boss missed the final game of the League One season to be with his father who had suffered a brain haemorrhage, and has been touched by the well wishes received by the family.

    He said: “On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to thank the huge number of people who have been kind enough to send messages of support during a difficult time.

    “It has been overwhelming to read how many people care and that they are thinking of my dad and willing his recovery."

    He also thanked the "magnificent" staff at Macclesfield Hospital and at the Salford Royal.

  8. Lambert - 'There's no contract clause and I love it here'

    Swansea City v Stoke City (Sun, 15:00 BST)

    Stoke City


    Stoke boss Paul Lambert has confirmed there is no break clause in his contract at the Bet365 stadium.

    It sounds like he wants the challenge of a season in the second tier, striving for a swift return to the Premier League.

    "There is no clause in my contract. I'm sure when the game finishes on Sunday we will sit down and analyse things like every other club," he said.

    "I love it here, I really do. I know the characters that need to come in and the areas that are lacking."

  9. Lambert - 'Stoke lacked the edge to stay up'

    Swansea City v Stoke City (Sun 15:00 BST)

    Stoke City

    Stoke manager Paul Lambert thinks his side were too nice to survive in the Premier League.

    The Potters were the first club to have relegation to the Championship confirmed at the weekend after a 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace.

    And Lambert said: "Any successful sports person has an edge to them but I don't think we had enough to succeed.

    "You never quite know what lies in store when you go into a football club but the one thing that the players have done since I've been here is be competitive. We've taken the lead in five games but not quite been able to see them out.

    "It's been a tough week. It's still raw for everyone connected with the club."

  10. 'We want Raheem to stay'

    Southampton v Man City (Sun, 15:00BST)

    Pep Guardiola was also asked about Raheem Sterling being prepared to delay contract talks until after the World Cup.

    He said: "The club chairman and myself want him to stay a long time and to renew his contract - but we are going on holiday in a few days."

    Guardiola said he doesn't expect to sign many players this summer, no more than 'one or two'.

    However, he did say there may be some in his existing squad who do not want to stay because they are not playing often enough.

  11. Puel: "We enjoyed the Arsenal game"

    Tottenham v Leicester City (Sun, 15:00 BST)

    Leicester City

    Claude Puel and his squad close out their season at Wembley on Sunday.

    They head to London to face Spurs on the back of a big win over Arsenal in midweek.

    "We enjoyed this game [against Arsenal] and it was a good feeling for the team and for the fans. We had a good mentality, energy and desire.

    “It will be great for us to play at Wembley. An opportunity to finish the season strongly at a fantastic stadium.”

    Claude Puel

  13. Benitez - 'Top 10 is target next term'

    Newcastle v Chelsea (Sun, 15:00 BST)

    Newcastle United


    Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez says the club must aim higher next season.

    The Magpies are currently 10th on goal difference,one of four clubs on 41 points.

    But the Spaniard said: “It’s clear that after staying up, the potential is to fight and be in the top ten (next season). Being in the top ten and challenging for something more important.

    “The atmosphere has been really good. The positive atmosphere is always good for the team - singing and the flags. You can see the passion and it affects the players in a positive way.”

    He added that Ciaran Clark and Christian Atsu remain injured and unavailable. On loan Chelsea winger Kenedy is ineligible to face his parent club.

  14. It's not going to happen

    Southampton v Man City (Sun, 15:00BST)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola has rejected the rumours about Sergio Aguero potentially returning to Atletico Madrid this summer.

    Aguero left Atletico for City in 2011 and amid a feeling Aguero does not get on that well with Guardiola, Diego Simeone is interested in bringing the Argentina forward back to Madrid.

    Guardiola said: "I think it's not going to happen, my desire is it will not happen."

    He did add that in football, anything was possible.

  15. Get Involved

    Briyan: John Terry's farewell last season was definitely sad. Missed his leadership and this season's decline has been prove of that.

    Scott D: The disbelief when finding out we'd sold Gazza. His transfer money saved Spurs but a feeling of utter despair.

    Jack Robin: Has to be Kevin Keegan, Newcastle. 2 goals against LFC, fans on the scoreboard, marching band at halftime, and that helicopter exit

  16. Carvalhal: "Not many would have done a better job"

    Swansea v Stoke (Sun, 15:00 BST)

    Swansea City

    "I don't think many managers would do better than what we have done."

    He continued by saying his side's impending relegation is due to injuries to key players and targets not joining the club in January, because of their perilous league position at the time.

  18. Klopp: 'Salah best he's ever been but I'm not partying'

    Liverpool v Brighton (Sunday, 15:00 BST)



    I think he rates him you know....

    "He deserved all the awards he got but I'm not in the mood to praise anyone for the past months, I'm only in the mood for Sunday. It's all about Sunday," said the Liverpool manager.

    "Salah is probably in the best moment he has ever been and I'm not in any doubt that he doesn't forget where he has come from.

    "I'm interested in the human being and I'm completely happy with that."
