REBECCA LOWE: “Championship Sunday is upon us and there’s still one place left up for grabs in the race for Champions League football next season. Liverpool have the advantage but they may have one eye on the Champions League Final on May 26, so Chelsea will be hoping to capitalize on that and nip ahead of them, which would be one of the surprises of the season considering the way the Blues have played all campaign. It’s the only time that all 20 teams play at the same time…it’s like a throwback to yesteryear with all the drama happening simultaneously. And let’s not forget it’s also farewell to a man who we’ve watched for 22 years, Arsene Wenger leaves Arsenal. It’s a day that has everything.”
