Confident Conte says Chelsea still on track for title

He's an excellent manager, I learn a lot when I see his teams - Juventus, Italy and now. I can't wait to see the finished video. These teams control a lot of aspects. "These are minimum details".

Newcastle 2-1 Wigan: Toon edge closer to promotion

Clichy backs Wenger to continue at Arsenal

Clichy backs Wenger to continue at Arsenal

A draw suited neither team. But for Arsenal , after crushing losses to Liverpool, West Brom and Bayern Munich last month, the result at least restored some confidence. They were, however, perhaps unfortunate not to win a penalty late on when Nacho Monreal touched the ball with his hand. The Frenchman may yet decide to stay at The Emirates, although there is an increasing sense of finality about his tenure and Wenger's proud record of 20 consecutive top-four finishes seems in jeopardy.

Even one of Jackson's former great players - Scottie Pippen - took Anthony's side while calling for the Zen Master's ouster. Read More
