What we learned from this weekend's Premier League action

The Potters face Manchester City on Monday night, and defeat in that match will leave them 19th in the table though just one point away from safety. United, [1.02], look nearly certain to finish in the top four, while Spurs, [1.19], have a healthy five point cushion over fifth-place Chelsea. The win over Liverpool extended their lead to four points over Spurs, dropping Liverpool into 3rd.

'You don't give up but second position is there and confirms you will be in the Champions League. That route into the Champions League mattered more than league finish, even though United could've still qualified for the Champions League the traditional way.

'People forget that it's still possible for us to win two big titles this season - the Champions League and FA Cup.

Midfielder Ander Herrera admits that this year's Champions League has become "enormous" to Manchester United.

'Shambles' as millennial railcard site crashes
The railcard for 26 to 30-year-olds costs £30 for a year and offers a third off most fares in England, Wales and Scotland. The website selling new millennial railcards has crashed due to high demand as just 10,000 went on sale.

"I think the English teams fighting for top four, all of them will feel the same as me". As long as a team finishes in the top four, there's no difference.

The Portuguese boss, who has lifted the highly-coveted trophy on two occasions with Porto and Inter Milan, will have now made European success his priority this season with Pep Guardiola's City looking like the inevitable Premier League champions.

The Spain worldwide tasted FA Cup success with United back in 2016 but has never won Europe's grandest competition and admits it is at the top of his wish list. United is still alive in the quarterfinals and the easy pick for favorites. They have every reason to expect to join Manchester City and Liverpool in the quarterfinals. Should Manchester United make it to the final, that's a scenario that could outdo the Premier League champions. It's also the oddity of the modern Premier League in the new era of the top four.

West Ham are facing an investigation by the Football Association after the ugly scenes which occurred during Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Burnley. After a mini-revival at the turn of the year, West Ham have started to slide back towards the drop zone and, having now endured three straight Premier League defeats, off-field problems could hasten their demise.
