Chelsea celebrate title win with One Direction star Niall Horan

With the Premier League title mathematically sewn up with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, it was only natural that Chelsea's stars went out partying over the Bank Holiday, with John Terry, Gary Cahill and Didier Drogba hitting the town to celebrate on Sunday evening.

As posted on Instagram by Terry himself, the Chelsea trio partied the night away along with One Direction member Niall Horan, who is either ridiculously tall or found himself a box to stand on.

The Relegation Scrap: Premier League battle going down to the wire

Newcastle manager John Carver makes it clear that his side must step up their game and end their poor run of form in order to avoid relegation.
ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains Newcastle United are playing up to standards, which he feels comes down to ownership.

With three rounds of games remaining in the Premier League season, Dale Johnson assesses the teams battling to avoid the drop with just two points separating five teams for 18th place.

Position: 14th

Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala can still prove critics wrong

Eliaquim Mangala is featured in ESPN FC TV pundit Craig Burley's list of worst signings of the season.

Following just his second appearance in a Manchester City shirt -- in September's 4-2 win at Hull City -- Eliaquim Mangala was criticised as an over-priced flop after his £40 million move from FC Porto. In fact, after what will no doubt be his worst game of the season, the Frenchman was entirely written off in some quarters thanks to an own goal and the concession of a penalty in a first half to forget.

Those criticisms came from the same folks who were saying he was the best thing since sliced...

The future stars of the four Champions League semifinalists

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti spoke ahead of his sides La Liga clash with Almeria, including the call up of Martin Odegaard.

This week sees the commencement of the Champions League semifinals, with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and Juventus and Real Madrid squaring off for the two spots in June's final in Berlin.

Targu Mures on verge of becoming football's unlikeliest champion ever

In just their first season back in Romania's stop-flight, Targu Mures are closing in their first ever title.
In just their first season back in Romania's stop-flight, Targu Mures are closing in their first ever title.

They are a small, newly promoted team who were expected to struggle in a relegation battle with a bunch of ageing has-beens in their squad. They controversially sacked not one but two coaches by December. Their general manager abandoned the club as well. They very nearly sold their only promising young player during the winter break. Their best known player was underperforming and was close to having his contract terminated. Their top scorer is a fervent and vocal fan of their rivals' president....
