She added: “I now feel the time is right to take some time away and for someone else to come in and lead the team on the next stage of its journey.” Stoney is already attracting attention from clubs in the NWSL.

Jorginho Howler Hands Arsenal Win at Chelsea

Emile Smith Rowe denied Chelsea the chance to cement their top-four status as he took advantage of Jorginho's howler to give Arsenal a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge. The Blues would have all-but secured their Champions League qualification with a victory which would have taken them 10 points clear of Liverpool, who have four games left to play, but after making seven changes ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final, struggled to create clear-cut chances. Kai Havertz should have put them ahead 10 minutes in when he intercepted Gabriel's loose pass for Pablo Mari and raced clean through, but then fired over Bernd Leno's bar with only his compatriot to beat. Moments later Jorginho's equally poor back-pass was kept out by Kepa Arrizabalaga at full stretch, but Smith Rowe was on hand to bundle h...

Villa Win to Dent Everton European Hopes

Anwar El Ghazi's 80th-minute strike dented Everton's European hopes as Aston Villa secured a hard-fought 2-1 win at Goodison Park. Ollie Watkins' 14th Premier League goal of the season put Villa ahead after a mistake from Mason Holgate (13) but Dominic Calvert-Lewin restored parity when he met Lucas Digne's corner (19). But with the game meandering towards a draw, El Ghazi was afforded too much time to curl a shot into the far corner to clinch an eighth Premier League away win of the season for Dean Smith's side. The result means Everton remain in eighth place - nine points off the Champions League places with five games remaining - while Villa rise to ninth.

In a game dominated by City from first to last - their Expected Goals was 3.63 to Tottenham's 0.06 - the only real surprise was that it took until the 82nd minute for them to get the winner, which took City to a joint-record eighth win in this competition alongside Liverpool - while they also became the second side after the Reds to win this competition for the fourth time in a row.

Swansea Secure Championship Play-off Place

Swansea secured a Championship play-off place on Sunday with a hard-earned 2-2 draw at Reading, whose own top-six aspirations were ended by the result. The Welsh side join Brentford, Bournemouth and Barnsley in the end-of-season shoot-out in the English second tier. Norwich and Watford have already secured automatic promotion to the Premier League after both were relegated last year. Swansea dominated much of the first half but fell behind against the run of play when Yakou Meite nodded home in the 31st minute. Opportunist second-half efforts from Jamal Lowe and top-scorer Andre Ayew gave Swansea the lead, with Tomas Esteves’ late equaliser for Reading proving irrelevant. Ayew said he was delighted to reach the play-offs as Swansea target a return to the Premier League f...

Blades Punish Wasteful Brighton to Seal Rare Win

Rock-bottom Sheffield United secured only their fifth Premier League win of the season as David McGoldrick's first-half strike was enough to clinch a 1-0 victory over Brighton at Bramall Lane on Saturday Night Football. The Blades' fate was sealed last weekend when they were narrowly beaten by Wolves, but the hallmarks of their successful first season back in the top-flight were back on display during a resolute performance that ultimately came too late in their quest to beat the drop. McGoldrick's winning strike (19) was far from a thing of beauty as a series of attempted clearances and ricochets allowed the striker to shoot on the turn and wrong-foot goalkeeper Robert Sanchez. Brighton, who remain in 16th place, were denied an equaliser upon VAR review when Jakub Moder found t...

Leno Howler Ends Everton’s Wait for Win at Arsenal

Everton ended their 25-year wait for a win at Arsenal and moved to within three points of the Premier League's top four after Bernd Leno's calamitous own goal secured a 1-0 victory amid supporter protest at the Emirates Stadium on Friday Night Football. Richarlison's cross flashed through the Arsenal goalkeeper's legs with 14 minutes remaining as a tumultuous week at Arsenal - which began with the club's intention to join a European Super League - ended in a home defeat. The hosts thought they had been awarded a second-half penalty when Dani Ceballos was fouled by Richarlison, but Nicolas Pepe was deemed offside in the build-up upon VAR review.

Chelsea ended Manchester City's quadruple bid as Hakim Ziyech's goal secured a 1-0 win at Wembley to send Thomas Tuchel's side through to the FA Cup final. Ziyech converted Timo Werner's squared pass after Chelsea sprang the Manchester City offside trap 10 minutes into the second half and the goal proved decisive in a game of few chances. City could yet face Chelsea again in the Champions League final after both sides advanced in Europe earlier this week, but they were well below par at Wembley and their problems were compounded by an injury to Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian was forced off early in the second half, making him a doubt for next weekend's Carabao Cup final against Tottenham, and Pep Guardiola's side were unable to muster a response after Ziyech's strike despite dom...
