Wenger tells Arsenal to set sights on second

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez (L) celebrates with teammate Aaron Ramsey during the Premier League match at KC Stadium on May 4, 2015Arsene Wenger has challenged his Arsenal side to finish the season unbeaten and secure second place in the Premier League. The Gunners cruised to a 3-1 win at Hull City on Monday, their 10th straight match unbeaten all but securing a top-four finish for the 18th successive season. Chelsea were crowned champions on Sunday but Wenger said finishing second for the first time in a decade was an important target in a campaign that could yet end with holders Arsenal retaining the FA Cup in a Wembley final against Aston Villa later this month. "For me it makes a difference," said Arsenal manager Wenger.

Luis Enrique shining in Guardiola’s shadow

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola during his side's Bundesliga match against Bayer Leverkusen in Leverkusen on May 2, 2015Despite the presence of Lionel Messi and 14 World Cup winners, the attention will be on the touchline as much as the pitch when Pep Guardiola leads his Bayern Munich side into the stadium he called home for so long on Wednesday. Guardiola has been to Barcelona's Camp Nou hundreds of times, as captain during an 11-year playing career and most memorably in winning 14 trophies in a four-year spell as the club's most successful ever coach. The last time he was there, for Barca's Champions League win over Manchester City in February, he sat in his seat, a season ticket in the stands next to his father. This midweek, though, he will experience the vast concrete bowl of a ground from a different angle, as the opposition coach as Bayern travel to Catalonia in the first-leg of their Champions League semi-final.

Soccer-Barca attack on fire, defence yet to dispel doubts

While there may still be a question mark over treble-chasing Barcelona’s defence, their fearsome attacking trident is firing on all cylinders ahead of Bayern Munich’s visit in the Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday. The South American trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez reached a scorching 108 goals for the season following the La Liga leaders’ 8-0 destruction of Cordoba on Saturday, eight more than the previous club record set by Messi, Samuel Eto’o and Thierry Henry when Barca won the treble in 2009. With a defence that has looked shaky at times this season, however, Barca’s hopes of reaching next month’s Champions League final at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium may hinge on them scoring more goals than they inevitably concede.

Soccer-Sanchez surpassing all my expectations, says Wenger

By Tom Hayward LONDON, May 4 (Reuters) – Alexis Sanchez became the first Arsenal player since Thierry Henry to score over 20 goals in his first season and manager Arsene Wenger said the Chilean has exceeded all his expectations. The effervescent 26-year-old scored a brace in Arsenal’s 3-1 Premier League victory against Hull City on Monday to take his tally to 24 goals in all competitions in his debut campaign. Sanchez has set the Premier League alight since his 35 million pound ($54.78 million) arrival from Barcelona in the close season though his impressive goal tally tells only part of the story of his impact at the Emirates Stadium. The attacking midfielder has also contributed 11 assists and plays with an unrivalled energy and enthusiasm to inspire an Arsenal team who have claimed 28 points from a possible 30 to all but secure Champions league qualification for an 18th successive season.

Arsenal cruise as Sanchez double shatters Hull

Arsenal's striker Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring his second goal during the English Premier League football match between Hull City on May 4, 2015Alexis Sanchez scored twice as Arsenal all but secured a top-four finish in the Premier League for the 18th consecutive season with a 3-1 victory at struggling Hull on Monday. Arsene Wenger's side swept into a three-goal half-time lead thanks to Sanchez's double and a strike from Aaron Ramsey before Stephen Quinn pulled one back for Hull after the break. The victory put third-placed Arsenal nine points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool, who have only three matches remaining and a vastly inferior goal difference to the Gunners, and effectively guaranteed their qualification for the Champions League.
