The season is winding to its close and last weekend's victory over Arsenal at Old Trafford has secured Champions League football for United in 2018/19.

Arsene Wenger was treated to a warm reception by old rival Sir Alex Ferguson on his last trip to Old Trafford as Arsenal boss. The Frenchman has enjoyed a long and fraught relationship with Manchester United since his arrival in English football 22 years ago, ruffling plenty of feathers and embracing the role of irritant and adversary. But having announced his departure at the end of the season there was a show of respect, led by his long-term foe Ferguson. Wenger was afforded a round of applause from the home support as he walked from tunnel to dugout, and he then posed with Ferguson as the Scot presented him with a silver vase. The gift was inscribed with a message which read: "Presented to Arsene Wenger by Sir Alex Ferguson CBE and Jose Mourinho on behalf of Manchester United Football Club, in recognition of his service to and achievements at Arsenal Football Club 1996 – 2018."

Chelsea will play Manchester United in the FA Cup final after beating Southampton 2-0 in the second semifinal at Wembley Stadium on Sunday with goals from Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata. Giroud, who had been selected ahead of Morata to spearhead Chelsea's attack, scored the first goal within 30 seconds of the second half after a mesmerizing piece of dribbling inside the Southampton penalty area. Having been found by Eden Hazard, the Frenchman picked his way past Southampton defenders, like a slalom skier, to leave himself a simple tap-in from close range. Morata, who came on to replace Giroud in the second half, got the second goal with an 82nd-minute header from Cesar Azpilicueta's cross, after peeling away from the Southampton defense. Chelsea coach Antonio Conte had opted for Giroud, who was bought on the final day of the January transfer window from Arsenal, after his two goals last weekend against Southampton helped the Blues come from behind to win 3-2. Conte said he started … [Read more...] about Chelsea beats Southampton to face Man United in FA Cup final

Dele Alli opened the scoring for Spurs in just the 11th minute before former Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez pegged them back with a header before the break. Ander Herrera bagged the winner midway through the second half, slamming a long-range effort past Michel Vorm, who perhaps should have done better. After the game the Manchester United players were seen celebrating their victory on the Wembley pitch as the Spurs stars headed back to their changing room. BBC then cut to the studio, and fans watching the action from home anticipated hearing Jose Mourinho react to his side's comeback, and Mauricio Pochettino bemoan Tottenham's latest failure this season.
