players dominated the Premier League Team of the Year as named by the Professional Footballers' Association.

Veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs celebrated being named player of the year by headlining a six-strong group of Old Trafford stars in the annual selection.

Defenders Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, winger Cristiano Ronaldo and goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar were all named in the all-star XI.

However, there was no place in the side for England striker Wayne Rooney.

Elsewhere, United's main title rivals Liverpool had two players honoured after captain Steven Gerrard and striker Fernando Torres were named.

Portsmouth and England defender Glen Johnson was given the nod at right-back, while there was a surprise inclusion for Chelsea Nicolas Anelka up front.

PFA young player of the year Ashley Young of Aston Villa completed the line-up.

watch Barcelona vs Chelsea live streaming

They play at a high level both on and off the ball. In my Barca days, I remember we put on the pressure when we lost the ball. They still do this now and the Chelsea players are aware of it.

"But I've never been with a team like Chelsea, a team that wants to win more. Some of the players have won just about everything, but they never give up fighting.

"We have some great individual players, but we are also a great team. Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and John Terry are on great form, and Nicolas Anelka is regaining his form.

"What makes us a strong side is our desire to win the Champions League. Our weaknesses depend on the day. We're capable of going to Camp Nou and not losing.

"I think the second leg will be decisive. In the first leg you still know you have another 90 minutes. It would be great to score in Nou Camp, but we also realise we can't afford to let any goals in. We want the semi-final to be decided at home."

"Nobody is unstoppable. I've played in the Brazilian national side for a long time and we've never thought we were unstoppable. When I was with Barca we played great football but we weren't either. Unstoppable teams don't exist.

watch Arsenal v Middlesbrough live streaming

In 1886, a group of workers at the Woolwich Arsenal Armament Factory formed a team called Dial Square, renaming themselves to Royal Arsenal shortly afterwards. The team turned professional in 1891 and changed its name again to Woolwich Arsenal, eventually dropping the prefix completely in 1913 when they moved to Highbury.

The Gunners joined the Second Division in 1893 and were promoted in 1904. Success eluded them until the arrival of Herbert Chapman in 1925 when they won the league five times between 1930 and 1938 and the FA Cup twice. Chapman, who died in 1934, was also behind the renaming of the nearest London Underground station to Arsenal.

Arsenal had to wait until the 1970s for their next period of success. But their first double in 1971 was followed by several near-misses - finishing second in 1972, and losing three FA Cup finals and the 1980 European Cup Winners' Cup final.

It was not until the return of ex-player George Graham as manager that the club rose to greatness again - winning six trophies during his nine-year reign. That included League Cup success in 1987 and 1993, the FA Cup in 1993, the league title in 1989 and 1991 and European Cup Winners' Cup in 1994. Arsenal hold the enviable record of the most consecutive seasons in the top flight - 80 at present.

watch Blackburn Rovers v Wigan Athletic live streaming

Carlos Villanueva is not exactly sure of his immediate future at Rovers after his parent club have revealed they have received two offers for him.
The 23-year-old joined Blackburn last summer in a season-long loan move from Chilean side Audax Italiano, there was an option to buy the player at the end of the season, but nothing has been sorted out yet for the forward who has made just 18 appearances this season and scored two goals.

Villanueva has made no secret of the fact that he wishes to remain at Ewood Park and Audax Italiano chairman Claudio Tessa has no objection.

But Tessa claims that a host of anonymous clubs are interested in the players services, he told La Tercera: "We have already received several offers for his transfer. Two of them are concrete, one is from Europe and the other is from another continent.

Un supercampionato europeo per fronteggiare la crisi che rischia di mettere a repentaglio il calcio e il grande "business" legato al pallone. L'idea viene rilanciata oggi dal periodico "France Football" che rivela il progetto dei grandi club europei di un "Supercampionato" d'Europa con tre divisioni e un sistenma di promozioni e retrocessioni. L'idea - riporta il periodico - non è nuova; dagli inizi degli anno '90 alcuni grandi club riunitisi in seguito nel cosiddetto G14 avevano reso la vita dura a Uefa e Fifa reclamando un campionato tra supergrandi sul modello della Nba americana.

In seguito il G14 si è sciolto ed è stato rimpiazzato dall'Associazione dei Club europei (Eca) e ora i membri più illustri del gotha del calcio europeo vogliono tornare alla carica ma agendo di concerto con l'Uefa e per questo sono pronti - si legge sul giornale - a fare alcune concessioni.


Il progetto con le tre serie A, B e C più i preliminari prevederebbe la partecipazione di 20/22 club ad ogni serie con 3/4 squadre promosse e/o retrocesse. Chi vince la Superlega A si vedrebbe assegnato il titolo di Campione d'Europa. Nelle dell'Eca e della Commissione Calcio Fifa con Platini la SuperLega non è in agenda, ma il dibattito è ormai aperto. 

"La Superlega? Credo che alla fine il calcio è destinato a uscire dalla sfera provinciale o nazionale per abbracciare quella internazionale". Arrigo Sacchi spiega così il suo sostegno all'idea della creazione di una Superlega europea.

Watch Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur live streaming

'Manchester United never had to get out of first gear to beat Portsmouth. Without being disrespectful to Pompey this was by far the easiest of the week`s matches for the 3 title chasers. 

That win for United has put them in a pretty much insurmountable position now as they can afford to lose a match and still take the title back to Old Trafford. They could lose to Arsenal at home in a few weeks and still win the trophy. That`s suggesting that Liverpool and Chelsea will win all their games and I certainly don`t think that`s a given and didn`t before the midweek games.

I`d also expect Manchester United to beat Tottenham this weekend despite their huge Champions League clash with Arsenal looming large. The cushion they now have at the top should allow them to relax more and after a recent slump in form I think they are due a big performance. 

Spurs certainly won`t be easy to beat as they proved in the Carling Cup final and are one of the Premier League form teams. However, despite their good form and massive improvements, I`d expect United to pick up another 3 points towards the title.'

Watch Chelsea v West Ham live streaming

We need to start getting used to the idea that Guus Hiddink will not stay on as Chelsea manager, so there will be (yet another) new man on the Chelsea touchline next season. Lindy has set us a challenge to say what we feel about Chelsea`s managerial prospects. But rather than write about what we would like to happen, I thought I would write about what I think is likely to happen. And, from what we read, the name that keeps cropping up is Milan`s coach, Carlo Ancelotti.

We`ll pass over the rather banal revelations from David Beckham that Carlo Ancelotti is learning English although I can`t help point out that, if the purpose of this was to help communications between coach and player, surely it is up to Beckham to learn Italian. Then again, in his time at Real Madrid Beckham failed to learn Spanish. 

watch Aston Villa v Bolton Wanderers live streaming

Very bad news for Wilfred Bouma. He has had a set-back in his rehab and will now definitely be out for the rest of the season. On the flip side of that, there are not many games left, it would be asking a massive amount for him to come straight back to his best and strangely, Nicky Shorey is actually starting to play like the bloke I thought we`d signed in the first place. Hopefully Freddie can just get sorted and come back for pre-season then start again - ideally as good as new!

We get drawn against hometown team Malaga in the Peace Cup, and also Celtic, which obviously creates the odd headline relating to MON. Celtic still need to win their league in order to qualify; I am not 100% sure why and nowhere seems to explain it, but I assume it is relating to CL qualifiers.

ZABALETA - 6 clearly didn't look fit and didn't really cope all afternoon. 

ONUOHA - 8 outstanding again for city and only for him we may not have won this game. 

DUNNE - 7 played better in the last 20 mins to keep Albion at bay and made some good tackles late on. 

BRIDGE - 5 the games seem to keep passing him by and he as well doesn't look fit. 

DE JONG - 6 yet again played to deep even for a defensive midfielder and only passed the ball forwards twice. 

KOMPANY - 6 like De Jong really he plays to deep and seems to give away needless fouls in dangerous places all the time. 

IRELAND - 6 not his best game and he looks drained. A great run and pass at the end to Sturridge though to make the points safe. 

ELANO - 8 was Eastlands MOTM but I would go for Ned as MOTM but Elano had a great game and I'm baffled why he got subbed again for the headless chicken.

Stoke City boss, Tony Pulis will be running in the London Marathon to help the Donna Louise Trust.

Coming hot on the heels of Rory Delap's announcement that he is going to be cycling from Edinburgh to Newcastle-on-Tyne in June in aid of the same local children's hospice, Tone's decision to run the 26 mile course is also just as impressive.

The run takes place on Sunday April 26th, just the day after the Potters are in the capital for the match at Fulham. But we'll have to wait and see if he takes to the streets wearing his trademark baseball cap.

Watch Chelsea v Everton Live Streaming

Chelsea's interim coach Guus Hiddink is already working on a way to combat Barcelona's attacking prowess without a recognised left-back. Ashley Cole's second-half booking in Tuesday night's astonishing 4-4 draw with Liverpool has left the Blues with a real headache when Chelsea meet the Spanish giants in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final at the Nou Camp in a fortnight. The club's decision to sell Wayne Bridge to Manchester City in the January transfer window and Paulo Ferreira's subsequent knee ligament injury have conspired, along with Cole's booking, to leave Hiddink searching within his ranks for a player capable of stopping Barca's Lionel Messi. "The left-back situation might cause problems but we have time to think how we might resolve it," said Hiddink. "Barcelona are a very advanced team with very skilful players. They know how to handle the pace. I like their philosophy of football."

Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced Saturday's win at Sunderland will prove to be a watershed in Manchester United's season. After sweeping all before them on their return from the Club World Cup in Japan, United have suddenly hit an alarming slump. Ferguson admitted goalkeeper Ben Foster made another mistake at the Stadium of Light. But it was the only thing that went wrong in a narrow 2-1 win at Sunderland that United's wily manager feels will mark the point in his side's season when confidence began to return. "It was a watershed," said Ferguson. "The back four played very well and restricted Sunderland to only a few chances because we dealt with their crosses terrifically. Ben is young and inexperienced but apart from that one mistake, the defence was very good. Hopefully from now on we will be fine."

Watch Liverpool v Arsenal Live streaming

Liverpool have maintained their status as a domestic and European force since the Premier League began in 1992, rarely finishing outside the top positions. The club have won seven major trophies since then, including the Champions League, Uefa Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups.

Indeed, 2001 saw the Reds claim an unprecedented League Cup, FA Cup and Uefa Cup treble. Having won more domestic and European trophies than any other English club, Liverpool's status as giants of the domestic game is undisputed.

Under Rafa Benitez, Liverpool have secured Champions League football in each of the last four seasons.

United retained the trophy in the following campaign and romped to further titles in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2003. More silverware was added to the Red Devils' burgeoning trophy cabinet with FA Cup success in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2004, plus League Cup victories in 1992 and 2006.

Perhaps the most memorable time in the club's history was the treble-winning season of 1999 when they added the European Champions League trophy to the league title and FA Cup.

Chelsea briefly broke their league dominance with title wins in 2005 and 2006. But in the 2006/07 season, the Red Devils roared back to regain the Barclays Premiership.

They went one better last season, enjoying their most successful campaign since winning the treble. They saw off the challenge of Chelsea and Arsenal to win an exciting Barclays Premier League title race and defeated the Blues on penalties in the Champions League final after a 1-1 draw between the two sides in Moscow.

The Premier League crown eluded them until 1998 - two years into manager Arsene Wenger's tenure - when they did the league and FA Cup double. Under the Frenchman, the Gunners shook off their "boring" image and began to play some of the most attractive football in England.

In eight of his 12 seasons at the club, Arsenal have finished first or second. And together with star players such as Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp, Wenger took Arsenal to another "double" in 2002.

The Gunners reached the Champions' League final in 2006, becoming the first London team to do so, but lost to Barcelona. Their Barclaycard Premiership title in 2003/04 saw them become only the second team to win the league without losing a match - earning them the title "The Invincibles." Overall they went 49 matches unbeaten, which is a national record.

O'Neill stormed on to the pitch at the full-time whistle to remonstrate with referee Mike Riley, who the Villa boss later claimed to have missed a foul on Ashley Young in the build-up to the winning goal.

He said after the match: "The officials also got three offside decisions wrong when we were clean through."

A statement on the FA's website confirmed that O'Neill has been charged for his behaviour at the final whistle, and not for his post-match comments.

The statement read: "The charge relates to O'Neill's conduct towards referee Mike Riley following the final whistle at Villa's match against Manchester United at Old Trafford on April 5."Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill has been slapped with an improper conduct charge by the FA.

"There are seven games left which is about 20% of the season and we want to make the last 20% of the season as good as the first 80%. 

"We want to make certain that we finish well and not leave a bad taste in our mouths by not keeping up that level of performance and allowing ourselves to relax. 

"Even in games we've lost this season we've always been in there fighting and I am very anxious for that to continue." 

Seventh spot and a place in next season's Europa League is now a realistic possibility, although Hodgson will not lose too much sleep if they fall just short. 

"I think Europe will be something that just happens to one team," he added. "I don't think any of the teams who could finish seventh are saying they want to be in Europe. It's more a question of seeing how well we play the last seven games.

The about-turn has been quite startling for a club that seemed well set for an unprecedented quintuple before they were dismantled by Liverpool on March 14.

Hiddink is likely to make minor adjustments to the side for the visit of Bolton but will resist the temptation to rest a players.

"You must always be careful with temptations, professionally, and I think we still have to focus on the league," said Hiddink.

However, unless manager Mark Wotte can inspire his young side to a remarkable turnaround in fortunes, any penalty could prove academic for the club's survival chances this season.

Southampton are still two points adrift of safety with five games left and seem set to be plying their trade in League One - if at all - come August.

Teenage winger Kieron Cadogan scored on his debut to earn Crystal Palace a point in a 1-1 draw against Coventry.

The latest graduate from Palace's prolific academy had only been on the pitch for 12 minutes when he pounced on a defensive mistake, rounded City goalkeeper Keiren Westwood and tucked the ball into the net.Late goals from John Joe O'Toole and Arturo Lupoli decided a typically feisty derby, although there was still time for Barnsley to miss a penalty and score a consolation through Daniel Bogdanovic.

Liverpool must cope without the suspended Javier Mascherano against the Blues after the Argentina international was booked in the second leg of the Real showdown.

Mascherano's absence means that Xabi Alonso is likely to start alongside Lucas in midfield with Gerrard supporting star striker Fernando Torres.

Alvaro Arbeloa and Andrea Dossena will miss the second leg at Stamford Bridge next week if they are booked in the first leg clash."Steven had some problems, but I think he will be OK for Wednesday," said Benitez.

"He was a little bit tired and he felt something a bit tight. We will see."

Gerrard has been the driving force behind Liverpool's recent resurgence and is the joint top-scorer in the Champions League with seven, including two in the thrashing of Real Madrid in the last round.Liverpool skipper Gerrard was a slight doubt for the all-Premier League first leg after being substituted late on against Fulham on Saturday with a slight groin problem

Bayern defender Daniel van Buyten will miss the trip to Spain because of personal reasons.

"The team left on Tuesday midday without Van Buyten for the match against Barcelona," the club said on their website.

Van Buyten is the second central defender to be ruled out, after Brazilian Lucio picked up a muscle injury in Bayern's 5-1 defeat against Wolfsburg on Saturday and will be out for several days.

Coach Juergen Klinsmann is expected to rely on Martin Demichelis and 19-year-old Brazilian Breno to harness the Spaniards' pace.

He also brought in Holger Badstuber from the reserve team."We are going to have to be at our very highest level to score goals and we know that at this level your mistakes are punished ruthlessly, especially against a team like Bayern."

Although Ferguson said he did not expect the 30-year-old to feature, he stopped short of saying Ferdinand would definitely miss the game and the defender remains in the squad.

The Scot has been known to talk pessimistically about certain players' chances of featuring as a psychological ploy before picking them for big games.

He said: "Most of the players will be okay and we can bring some fresh faces in but Rio, no, I don't think so."

Nemanja Vidic, Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes all return for the European tie after the suspended trio sat out the victory over Villa.

Park Ji-Sung is also likely to come back into the starting line-up, while Ferguson will make a late decision on the fitness of Ryan Giggs.

"We are on a good run and we feel we are consistent, which is a good basis to go into a Champions League game."

Luckily for Arsenal Adebayor is back from injury, as Robin van Persie has been ruled out. Likely to lead the line on his own, he quickly found his scoring touch at the weekend.

What a finale. What drama. Arsenal and Manchester United had lost this season at this footballing idyll by the Thames. Chelsea had drawn. 

It looked as if Liverpool would leave with less than they wanted too. And if they had only the man upstairs would have known how. 

Four times Liverpool hit the woodwork. Through Fernando Torres and Xabi Alonso. And Andrea Dossena twice. They played some magical football, too, but try as they might they struggled to breach the iron curtain Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has draped around Craven Cottage this season. 

Much is made of the importance of confidence in football and Liverpool have been stacking that commodity like beans in Tesco this past month. 

They had scored 11 goals and conceded just one in their last three league games, a period which had also seen them dispatch Real Madrid from the Champions League.

But the unlucky forward was forced off during the first half after sustaining suspected medial ligament damage and could now be sidelined for between two and six weeks. 

Moore should have young striker Craig Curran available after he came through a full 90-minute work-out against the Toffees. 

But Terry Gornell, a first-year professional who has made 10 senior appearances this season, faces another week on the sidelines with a medial ligament injury.

Gerrard agreed a two-year extension to his contract on Friday, believed to be worth around £130,000 a week, which means he will be at the club until 2013. "We have got big matches to play, all of them cup finals as we have to win them all to stay in the title race and go all the way to Rome for the Champions League final." 

He added: "It is a fantastic feeling to have agreed the deal. This is what I wanted, to see out the rest of my career with Liverpool.
Steven Gerrard believes Liverpool can fight for the Premier League and Champions League after tying down a string of stars to new deals.

"I have said all along that as long as the club wanted me then I would stay at Liverpool. 

"I have been a fan all my life and it will be fantastic at the end of my career to look back and say I have been with Liverpool all the way through.

The Blues have also been heavily linked with Juventus striker David Trezeguet, whose very public spat with manager Claudio Ranieri has alerted the eagle-eyed Frank Arnesen.

Maybe the Dane deserves that promotion to director of football after all - not just any Tom, Dick or Harry can unearth a man with over 200 career goals to his name, including the most famous Golden Goal ever.

Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro has been quoted as pointing out that it 'would not be a huge drama' if he left the Bernabeu in the summer: maybe Arnesen - in charge of global scouting - could send a few of his number to watch the little-known Italian in action, with Manchester City also understood to be interested.

Arsenal are understood to be lining up the man billed as the 'Serbian Saviour', no, not Nemanja Vidic, but 17-year-old striker Danijel Aleksic.

Arsenal might fight off interest for a while, but it will be hard for Arsene Wenger to turn down an offer of £45 million from either, particularly as he has seen his side go 16 games unbeaten without his skipper.

Not so long ago, Amr Zaki was one of the hottest properties in the Premier League.

On loan from Zamalek to Wigan, he scored eight goals in 10 games, prompting the Egyptian club to double their original £6 million asking price as clubs of the calibre of Liverpool began an apparent bidding war.

Fast forward six months, and Zaki has not scored from open play for 19 matches, has been involved in a bizarre row with his compatriot Mido and been described by Steve Bruce as the most unprofessional player he has ever worked with.

It is another set back for the former Chelsea forward after he had only recently recovered from injury to step back into the Hammers' line-up.

West Ham United striker Carlton Cole has been ruled out for six weeks with a groin injury."Fortunately, he won't need an operation," West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola told the club website.The 25-year-old only played for 20 minutes as a substitute in England's home friendly against Slovakia before picking up the injuryThe Hammers have blocked more shots (161) than any other side in the top flight.

Sunderland have only scored more than once in a game in one of their last 12 Premier League games.


"It's just a problem in between the muscle and the tendon in his groin so he doesn't need an operation."

Bentley's problem is that he is not getting regular starts at Spurs, mainly due to Lennon's sparkling recent form - and Redknapp hopes he does not have to make changes to his side as they are in the hunt for a place in the Europa League. 

Luka Modric has also impressed on the left so Bentley will probably be on the bench this weekend when he returns to Blackburn, who he left last summer. Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp expects bids for David Bentley this summer after a frustrating first season for the winger at White Hart Lane.Bentley arrived at Spurs looking to cement his place as David Beckham's successor for England but has fallen out of favour and is behind Aaron Lennon in the pecking order for club and country.

Redknapp added: "It's hard for David. Aaron has been in great form. You hope that Aaron keeps playing well and the team keeps winning and I don't have to change it, I've got to be truthful.

"The consensus of opinion was that Derby, Fulham and ourselves would get relegated, but two of us got out of it, so there is still everything to play for with every club down there at the moment." 

There has been undeniable progress at Bolton since their successful fight with relegation last season, yet the fear of sliding into the Championship still haunts Megson. 

The Trotters are five points above third-bottom Newcastle, but Megson said: "The relegation issue is between nine clubs at the moment, from West Brom up to ourselves, and we want to try and get out of that relegation area as soon as we can. 

"At the moment I don't think there's a single club in the entire Premier League who has not got something to play for with eight games to go.

Striker Daniel Cousin is Hull's only fitness concern after the international break gave the likes of Michael Turner, Andy Dawson and Ian Ashbee time to overcome injuries. 

The two-week recess since the last-gasp loss at Wigan has also taken the sting out of the Tigers' 13th defeat of the season. 

"To say the two-week break came at the right time is an understatement," Brown added. "We finished against Wigan with five playing out of position. 

"But the effects of Wigan have not been evident in the last fortnight. 

"The sessions I have been witnessing this week are ones that have given me a spur.

And Pulis believes all three promoted sides - Stoke, West Brom and Hull - can all be proud to retain hopes of survival at this late stage of the campaign. 

He added: "I'm very pleased that the three of us are still fighting because it's a massive, massive step when you come up from the Championship. 

"Everything is different, on and off the field, and it's a big learning curve for us all. 

"There may be only eight games left, but the biggest part of the season is still in front of us and it's all to play for. 

"It's incredibly exciting with 10 or 11 teams still not safe and we think we are ready for the challenge."

watch Leicester City v Carlisle United live streaming

Leicester are boosted by the return of Steve Howard and Andy King as they look to get their title charge back on track at home to Carlisle.Striker Howard is likely to go straight back into the starting line-up alongside top scorer Matty Fryatt after serving a two-match suspension. 

Midfielder King comes back into the reckoning after missing the defeat at Peterborough while on international duty with the Wales Under-21 side. 

Elsewhere, Wayne Brown is in contention to start after being on the bench at London Road. He will challenge Patrick Kisnorbo and Michael Morrison for the right to partner Jack Hobbs at the heart of defence. 

The League One leaders saw second-placed Peterborough narrow the gap at the top of the table to just four points with a 2-0 victory in last week's meeting between the two sides.

Brentford boss Andy Scott will be without striker Charlie MacDonald when the League Two leaders travel to Bradford City on Saturday.The Bees' top scorer suffered a dislocated shoulder during last weekend's draw with Gillingham and the club are waiting on the results of a scan to determine the extent of the damage. 

Boss Andy Scott is therefore light in attack, with Nathan Elder (cheekbone) and Jordan Rhodes (metatarsal) ruled out for the rest of the season. 

Ipswich forward Billy Clarke, who played on the wing against Gillingham, will probably be pushed up front alongside another loanee, Aston Villa's Sam Williams. 

On-loan Cheltenham striker Damian Spencer and recent midfield recruit Craig Dobson are pushing for starting places but captain Kevin O'Connor is still missing with a knee injury.

Celtic boss Gordon Strachan is confident Artur Boruc will recover from his nightmare with Poland and rebuild his reputation with the Bhoys.Strachan was at fault for two goals in Poland's 3-2 defeat by Northern Ireland at Windsor Park last Saturday, the third goal especially embarrassing when he let a back-pass bounce over his foot. 

Boruc was then axed from the squad following a confrontation with Poland boss Leo Beenhakker when he was told he would play no part in the midweek World Cup qualifier against San Marino. 

It was the latest in a long line of controversial incidents involving Boruc on and off the field this season. 

In January, Strachan revealed he would have a word with the erratic Pole after another gaffe had handed Dundee a shock opener in a Homecoming Scottish Cup tie at Parkhead.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has confirmed the club want to sign Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas.

Arsenal lured Fabregas away from Barcelona as a teenager after he came through the club's youth ranks.

The 21-year-old has gone on to establish himself as one of the best young midfielders in Europe and a host of clubs have been credited with an interest in his services.

Fabregas has been continually linked with a return to his native Spain with both Barcelona and Real Madrid keen on signing him.

Bayern and Wolfsburg are joint second on 48 points, a point behind leaders Hertha Berlin with nine matches left and a defeat for either would see them drift off at least three points.

Wolfsburg, with seven consecutive wins, have the league's most feared home record, dropping only two out of a possible 36 points from 12 matches.

Toni's return from a four-week absence with a heel injury is welcome news for Bayern who had been short of fit strikers after Miroslav Klose injured his ankle and was ruled out for more than a month, leaving volatile Lukas Podolski as the only option.

"Luca is hungry. He wants to get stuck in there," said Bayern coach Juergen Klinsmann after the Italian scored a hat-trick in training.

even-time reigning champions Lyon, who are away at Le Mans on Saturday, top the table with nine rounds of fixtures left but they are just a point clear of Marseille, with Bordeaux a further two points back. 

Les Gones are still considered favourites to land what would be a record eighth consecutive crown but they have won just one of their last four matches. 

This weekend's match should be one of their easier games between now and the end of the season as they still have the likes of OM, Bordeaux, Paris Saint-Germain and Toulouse yet to play. 

"If we are going to win the title, we'll have to produce a great end to the season," said Lyon forward Ederson.
