Lazio’s mascot, a white-headed eagle named Olimpia, was attacked by a crow as it few over the Olympic stadium before the kick-off. Continue reading...

• Terry hits back at boring jibes aimed at Chelsea • Captain points to club’s early-season goalscoring form • Match report: Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea • Mourinho rejects criticism after Chelsea hold off Arsenal John Terry has pointed to Chelsea’s resilience and ability to dig deeper than those among the chasing pack as key to the team’s imminent title success this season, arguing neat and tidy possession football is meaningless if it does not yield victories. The former England captain was outstanding in his side’s goalless draw at Arsenal on Sunday , a result which means Chelsea can claim the title this week if they defeat Leicester on Wednesday and Crystal Palace at the weekend. The leaders have still only lost twice in the league all season, and not at all since New Year’s Day, and boast a 10-point advantage at the top which they have maintained despite suspensions and injuries disrupting their approach over recent months.

The New York Red Bulls remain the last undefeated side in MLS, while a referee’s dismal outing led to a highly entertaining Houston v Kansas City match Sunday was an interesting day for a couple of rivalries that have dominated the designated player era. It was rounded out by one of the more nondescript Cascade clashes of recent times as Seattle and Portland cancelled each other out until a frenetic final 15 minutes, but prior to that New York Red Bulls and LA Galaxy played their only game of the regular season in a manner that was remarkable in the context of recent history.

Chelsea manager José Mourinho responds to the criticism that Chelsea is a boring team, following a 0-0 draw against Arsenal on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium. During the match Arsenal fans chanted 'boring, boring Chelsea'. Mourinho says Arsenal are the boring team, as they have not taken a championship since 2003-4 Continue reading...

John Terry deserves recognition, John Stones and Ross Barkley are coming of age, and was keeping Frank Lampard worth Manchester City’s trouble? How can it possibly be that John Terry can play with this distinction but not even merit a place on the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award? But then, there are a lot of awkward questions that still surround Chelsea’s formidable captain. Watching him play with so much authority, then listening to the eulogy that came from his manager, once again the thought occurred of what a mess it is that England’s best central defender is not involved with the national team and, at this stage, almost certainly never will be. Perhaps it is the occasional rest on international weeks that is helping Terry put in one of the outstanding seasons of his career. “I told John Terry in the dressing room he had [put in some] fantastic performances for me, but this was his best,” José Mourinho said. “It was the best JT has ever played. It was absolutely amazing. He’s had fantastic performances in the five or six years we worked together, and some of them with goals. One performance at Highbury, I think in my first season, was a fantastic performance too. But I think today everything was clean: reading the game, giving cover, leading the defensive line, making interceptions, even in the pass. The team was phenomenal, but John was one step ahead of every other player.” Daniel Taylor • Daniel Taylor’s match report: Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea • Six Chelsea players named in PFA team of the year • Mourinho rejects ‘boring’ criticism after Chelsea hold off Arsenal • Dominic Fifield: Wenger frustrated at Chelsea resilience • Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea: player ratings • Match report: Everton 3-0 Manchester United • Van Gaal slams team for complacency at Everton • Interview: Nigel Pearson – ‘I don’t like all I am’ • Match report: Burnley 0-1 Leicester • Match report: Crystal Palace 0-2 Hull City • Bruce: I’d lose cash if Hull went down but failure would cost me • Match report Manchester City 3-2 Aston Villa • They think it’s all over: ex-footballers on life after the final whistle • Match report: Southampton 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur • Paul Wilson’s Premier League team of the season – in pictures • Match report: Stoke 1-1 Sunderland • Match report: West Brom 0-0 Liverpool • Rodgers casts doubt on Daniel Sturridge’s future at Liverpool • Match report: Newcastle 2-3 Swansea • Match report: QPR 0-0 West Ham Continue reading...

Alves was pictured with a poster that called for recognition on Friday, 100 years to the day of what is conventionally held to be the starting date of the Armenian genocide.
