Jose Mourinho turned on Manchester United’s own television station on Tuesday as the embattled manager showed fresh signs of strain ahead of Wednesday's crucial clash against Arsenal. Mourinho is facing a defensive crisis ahead of the visit of Unai Emery’s side to Old Trafford and took exception to being asked an innocuous question about his depleted resources by an MUTV presenter. “I don’t want to update you, I would like Arsenal TV to ask the same questions but they don’t, they hide everything from the inside, so why should I answer to you,” Mourinho snapped in an apparent reference to last season when Mesut Ozil faced United despite Arsenal’s suggestions the German playmaker would not be fit. United will fall 11 points behind fourth placed Arsenal if they lose as the pressure mounts on Mourinho. But while Mourinho retracted his claim that his side need “a miracle” to finish in the top four, he refused to make any predictions … [Read more...] about Jose Mourinho directs frustrations towards own television channel as depleted squad prepares for Arsenal test

Match of the Day pundits Frank Lampard and Martin Keown have told Swansea City they must “go all in” against Southampton on Tuesday, with the latter suggesting the Welsh club have been gripped by fear in the relegation run-in. The pair were speaking as part of an extended analysis of Swansea’s poor 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth, where some bright first-half moments gave way to a rudderless second period. That, allied to Southampton’s draw against Everton, has seen the Swans drop into the Premier League drop zone heading into the final week of the season. They have home fixtures against the Saints and already-relegated Stoke ahead. When asked who he thought was in better shape to stay up, former Chelsea and England midfielder Lampard opted for the south-coast side, but believes home advantage on Tuesday night could yet swing things back in Swansea’s favour. “It’s a massive game. On today’s showing (I would back) Southampton because with Nathan … [Read more...] about The TV pundits are distinctly unimpressed with Swansea City
Liverpool are in line for a €74m (£67.8m) windfall after reaching their first Champions League final for 11 years. Arsenal, meanwhile, stand to receive around €40m (£35m) after being dumped out of the Europa League in the semi-finals last night by Atletico Madrid. Jurgen Klopp's side could even earn as much as €78m should they beat reigning champions Real Madrid, who have triumphed in three of the last four competitions, in the Kiev final on 26 May. Liverpool have already earned €49.7m in prize money payments – a new record for a British side in the competition – after becoming the first Premier League representative to reach European football's showpiece event since Chelsea lifted the trophy in 2012. The Reds’ total payment could rise to €54.2m if they win the competition and, with an estimated €23.8m to come in TV money, it would see the Reds finish with €78m. Chelsea are the only other Premier League club in the … [Read more...] about Champions League and Europa League revenue: How much prize money and TV income will triumphant Liverpool, heartbroken Arsenal and other Premier League teams receive?
After successive defeats to Manchester City, Everton, Arsenal and Spurs, Stoke City face the Hammers desperate for a win to boost their Premier League survival hopes. After the weekend's other results, they are now second-from-bottom of the table, six points from safety and with a much poorer goal difference compared to most of their relegation rivals. But West Ham are still in need of points themselves, and they will be hoping Marko Arnautovic can again be tormentor-in-chief against his former club, as his was when the Hammers won at the bet365 Stadium in December . Anyone looking for good omens will point to the fact Stoke have lost just one of their last nine Premier League games against the Hammers (W3 D5), while they are also unbeaten in their last five league trips to West Ham, although four of these have ended in draws. Here's all the information you need to know, including TV channel details, team news and match odds as Paul Lambert’s men look to lower West Ham’s … [Read more...] about Is West Ham v Stoke City on TV?
