Newcastle United 1-2 Swansea City Premier League 19th April 2014
If Swansea manage to avoid the drop the season they will owe their top tier survival to the goals of Wilfried Bony. The Ivorian striker's late penalty strike was his 13th this season in the league, eight more than any other Swansea player has managed this season.
Aston Villa 0-0 Southampton Premier League 19th April 2014
This clash at Villa Park was a bit of a damp squib with both sides struggling to create any decent chances.Adam Lallana had the best chance of the game, somehow missing from six yards, but overall neither side deserved the win.
Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Fulham Premier League 19th April 2014
Spurs registered a 3-1 win at home to Fulham in Saturday's early game, a result which keeps Fulham in a perilous position in the league. Christian Eriksen set up Spurs's first and last goals via superb free-kicks which were finished off by Paulinho (on 35 minutes) and Younes Kaboul (62 minutes).
Yeah, Alejandro Bedoya was along with all the cool kids today, scoring the second goal in a 6-2 Nantes romp at Valenciennes. The American scored in both games as his side pulled off the season sweep, with this one taking his total to five.Clip to come...- Greg Seltzer
Rapid Vienna are getting to the hour at Grödig and our man Terrence Boyd is sniffing after his first hat trick by bagging his first two league goals in seven games. The US forward nodded home just past the half hour, then deposited a spot kick just after halftime to take his overall season total to 16 (or one less than he had last term).
For a player with World Class talent which he has sacks full of it's a pity he just can't get the diving out of his game as Luis Suarez goes from being injured to flying fit in just under 2 seconds against Norwich.
Jose Mourinho was almost adamant that Mike Dean was at fault for Chelsea's 2-1 defeat to Sunderland at Stamford Bridge today and judging by some of his decisions he may be right especially for Sunderland's penalty as it appears Jozy Altidore actually stands on the Chelsea defender before going down?
Juventus de Santa Catarina's coach Celso Teixeira is in hot water after it was revealed he made a sexist remark to female lines-person Maria Americano Labes, following his sending off last week Teixeira is accused calling Maria a "Hot Chick" following his dismissal.

Chelsea 1-2 Sunderland Premier League 19th April 2014
What a dramatic game this was, with Fabio Borini, a former Chelsea youth player who is currently on loan from Liverpool netting the winner for Sunderland. That decisive goal, which saw Jose Mourinho suffer his first league defeat at Stamford Bridge ever came after a rather soft penalty decision, with Jozy Altidore standing on Cesar Azpilicueta's foot rather than the other way around.
Jose Mourinho lost his first ever Premier League home game as Chelsea manager as Sunderland stunned them 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, however it was Assistant manager Rui Faria who lost it following Sunderland taking the lead as he went bald headed at referee Mike Dean who failed to give Chelsea an first-half penalty while also letting Ramires away with an elbow to the face of Sebatian Larsson who had fouled him in the area.
Referee Chris Foy had to sub himself off during Newcastle-Swansea earlier this afternoon when a Jonjo Shelvey shot cannoned back offFabricio Coloccini and hammered the official square in the face leaving him incapacitated for several minutes before leaving the pitch with a suspected broken nose.
There were a couple of reasons that the kick-off of the Greek Cup semi-final second leg between PAOK and Olympiakos had to be delayed last night, with a huge pre-game flare display engulfing the pitch in thick, accrid smoke that took several minutes to clear.

Roberto Baggio scores an equalier for Brescia against Juventus in 2001!
Dennis Berkamp gives Holland the lead against Argentina in their 1998 World Cup Finals tie with not one but two fantastic touches before scoring on the half volley!
In which, during a passing drill, Dejan Lovren's downright filthy little drag-back through the legs of Harrison Reed sends the rest of his Southampton team-mates bloody doolally during a training session, with Adam Lallana even hooting that it was "the best one he's ever seen" at one point.
He's probably the most skillful player ever to grace the football World? And here's just a snippet of why Lionel Messi is right up their with a the World's legend's forget the goals what about his first touch? It's awesome.
At no point did it ever look truly under control, but Gareth Bale settled the Copa Del Rey Final in Real Madrid's favour last night by yomping past Marc Bartra on the outside from inside his own half, eventually making his way into the Barcelona area and poking a magnificent solo finish past Jose Pinto.
Norwich City 2-3 Liverpool Premier League 20th April 2014
Liverpool survived a second-half rally from Norwich on Sunday to go five points clear at the top of the table. Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez put the Reds 2-0 up within 11 minutes as Brendan Rodgers' charges looked to capitalise on Chelsea defeat against Sunderland.
Sorry if the headline is a little mis-leading given the fact it was also Hull keeper Steve Harper's calamity which lead to this fluffed chance from Olivier Giroud who hit the crossbar when it looked easier to score however the Frenchman can be forgiven this one miss at least as they recorded a comfortable 3-0 win at the KC Stadium.
Dimitar Berbatov always had the touches just not the work-rate needed in the Premier League and the Bulgarian shows he's still got those qualities going for him with this super lob to give Monaco the lead against Nice earlier today!
West Ham United 0-1 Crystal Palace Premier League 19th April 2014
Whatever you think about Tony Pulis' prosaic brand of football, you've got to admire the Welshman's ability to organise teams and keep them in the top division. On Saturday, Pulis' Crystal Palace were deserved 1-0 winners against a poor West Ham side, with Mile Jedinak's penalty (after Cameron Jerome has been fouled byPablo Armero) the only goal of the game.
Anthony Stokes scored this sumptous goal against Motherwell today but did he actually mean it! If the celebration was anything to go by we would say yes however knowing footballers the way I do most would have celebrated exactly the same way wouldn't they?
Referee Chris Foy had to be subbed off after he was whacked in the face with the ball following Cheick Tiote's brilliant block from Jon Jo Shelvey's goal bound shot which came back and struck the unfortunate Foy with just over a minute of the game gone. Foy lasted anther 28 odd minutes before being replaced by Anthony Taylor.
Chile forward Junior Fernandes suffers a freak leg break while playing for Dinamo Zagreb last night which will rule the 25 year old Bayern Leverkusen loanee out of this Summer's World Cup Finals in Brazil!
