Lennon demands strong finish from Celtic

File picture shows Celtic manager Neil Lennon during a training session at the Lennoxtown training facility, near GlasgowCeltic manager Neil Lennon has warned his players the hard work isn't over yet, despite his side having already wrapped up the Scottish Premiership title. The Hoops sealed their third championship in a row last month but still have five games to play, starting with a visit to high-flying Motherwell on Saturday. "We have good games coming up with the top five now, and they will all be really good tests for us, whether they are home or away," said Lennon, whose side demolished Motherwell 5-0 on their last visit to Fir Park in December.

Chelsea’s title pedigree can make the difference

Chelsea's Demba Ba (L) watches his shot as he scores during the English Premier League match against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on April 13, 2014Chelsea's vast experience of the Premier League title race could be the deciding factor as the Blues try to overhaul leaders Liverpool, according to the club's assistant manager Steve Holland. Jose Mourinho's side are two points behind Liverpool but, with a crucial trip to Anfield looming on April 27, the Blues have their destiny in their own hands. If Chelsea win their last four matches, starting at home to bottom of the table Sunderland on Saturday, then they will be crowned champions for the fourth time in the Premier League era. The west Londoners' impressive pedigree means they know exactly what it takes to get over the finish line, while Mourinho has enjoyed title triumphs in several countries including England in his previous spell with Chelsea.
