Robert Lewandowski's late winner for Borussia Dortmund at Emirates Stadium ended Arsenal's flawless start to their Champions League campaign and threw Group F wide open.

Arsenal fell behind early on before Olivier Giroud levelled the game up with his seventh goal of the season just before half time. The Gunners were very good for long spells of the game but did appear to miss Mathieu Flamini in midfielder, and were caught out with a sucker-punch late in the match as it ended 2-1 to Dortmund. The result was the club's first defeat for thirteen matches in all competitions so there's certainly no need to panic, and one would expect Crystal Palace to receive a bit of a backlash in the Premier League this weekend.

Liverpool welcome Emre Can back to training and the defensive midfielder might be ready to start for the Reds in the second leg of the Europa League semifinal on Thursday.

Can was initially thought to have been lost for the rest of the season with an ankle injury he picked up in the second leg quarterfinal against Borussia Dortmund. He has made an earlier-than-expected return to training though and, if he can prove his fitness, could be picked by Jurgen Klopp on Thursday. The Reds desperately need to keep Villareal from scoring to have a shot at advancing to the final and the presence of Can would only improve their chances. If he does start, he would most certainly partner James Milner in the middle of the formation, allowing someone like Lucas to make the XI this weekend against Watford. After seeing that area of the pitch struggle against Swansea in the last round with inexperienced youngsters, it would be yet another boost for the clash with the Hornets.

Danny Rose has a hamstring issue while Toby Alderweireld picked up a knock in Tottenham's draw yesterday evening against Chelsea, putting two key Spurs defenders' status in doubt ahead of this weekend's match with Southampton.

There are some major talking points coming out of yesterday's draw for Spurs and none of them are positive. They set a Premier League record by accumulating nine yellow cards against Chelsea, amazingly finishing the match with a full XI. Mousa Dembele appeared to have eye-gouged Diego Costa and could face a ban this week that will end his season prematurely, this after Tottenham already lost Dele Alli to suspension. In the final ten minutes and change, Danny Rose had to be replaced by Ben Davies and Toby Alderweireld came off hobbling just before the final whistle. All of this while the club were officially eliminated from title contention. If Rose cannot go this weekend, Davies can play as an adequate replacement but an absence of Alderweireld would really hurt the club as they attempt to hold on to a final position ahead of rivals Arsenal.

It was an unlikely outcome on the day and on the season as Chelsea came from 2-0 down to draw with Spurs to give Leicester City the most unlikely league championship in Premier League history.

It was a momentous day for the Foxes as Jamie Vardy was awarded the Football Writers' Player of the Year award in the morning and Spurs frittered away a 2-0 lead to give them a championship in the evening. It wasn't the ideal scenario as the Foxes didn't win the title on the pitch but it will mean wild celebration in the streets of Leicester and hope for underdogs everywhere as Eden Hazard contributed to a title winning effort for the second season in a row as he equalized for Chelsea and officially eliminated Spurs from the title race.

Sam Vokes headed the Clarets to a 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers and to a guaranteed top two spot in the Championship.

The top two spot means that Burnley have guaranteed themselves promotion back to the Premier League one season after being relegated. Sean Dyche's side were defensively solid in their Premier League campaign but they lost Danny Ings and Kieran Trippier last summer and will need to revitalize their attack if they want to survive this time around.

Tottenham's title hopes were officially dashed this evening as they let a two goal lead slip away and finished with a 2-2 draw against Chelsea, making Leicester City the league champions.

It is celebration time in Leicester as Chelsea did what they hoped to do by ending Tottenham's hopes of catching the Foxes. Spurs were set up for a win at Stamford Bridge for the first time in 26 years by taking a 0-2 lead in the first half. In the 35th minute, Erik Lamela slipped a ball to Harry Kane who danced around the keeper and finished into an open goal. Nine minutes later, Christian Eriksen's through-ball set up Heung-Min Son who found the net with a low strike. Chelsea clawed their way in the second half, finding an equalizer in the 83rd minute. Tottenham amazingly accrued nine yellow cards along the way, with each infraction more cynical than the last, but somehow still finished the match without a sending off. It was a classic derby with more physical confrontations than one could count, but unlike Leicester, who have consistently played 90 minutes of football every week without losing their focus, Tottenham lost their cool as the match wound down.

Mark Hughes is sweating on the fitness of Marko Arnautovic ahead of next weekends’ trip to Selhurst Park.

Arnautovic was a concern heading into Saturdays’ game against Sunderland, but the big Austrian passed a late test although he wasn’t able to complete 90 minutes. "I thought he was excellent today," said Hughes who was speaking post-match about the players performance and well-taken goal. However, the Potters boss revealed: "He’s got a problem with his thigh," that's the reason he couldn’t continue. "When he starts to tire, it starts to restrict him." Hughes remains "hopeful" that Arnautovic will be OK for game against Crystal Palace. If not, one potential replacement is Jon Walters who returned following minor knee surgery. The Republic of Ireland international played more than half an hour on his comeback having missed the last four games.

Gerard Deulofeu has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign after suffering a knee injury in training on Friday.

Roberto Martinez confirmed Deulofeu had damaged knee ligaments last week during the build-up to the Bournemouth game: "He is out for the season. On Friday he got a knock on his knee. He doesn’t need an operation, it’s a medial ligament grade one tear." Deulofeu has struggled to hold down a starting place since the turn of year having finished 2015 strongly. The Spanish winger enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Romelu Lukaku and directly contributed to nine goals between September and December. But his form faltered in 2016 -- just one assist – from five Premier League starts as the emergence of Aaron Lennon pushed the 22-year-old down the pecking order.

Sadio Mane scored a hat trick after Shane Long opened the scoring and Southampton beat Manchester City 4-2.

Manchester City rested Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany and were without the injured David Silva. The Saints took advantage and scored four against the Champions League semi-finalists. The win doesn't mean much for the Saints but it strengthens Arsenal's position in third and makes the race for fourth an exclusively Manchester affair.

Kelechi Iheanacho scored on either side of halftime but it wasn't nearly enough as City fell 4-2 at St. Mary's.

City rested a number of starters ahead of the second leg of their Champions League semi-final in Madrid in mid-week. Academy product Iheanacho tried his best to keep City moving forward in the race for a Champions League place for next season but he was outdone by Sadio Mane and his hat trick.

The decision to leave Ryan Bennett out of the team sheet may have boggled fans and fantasy managers alike, but Alex Neil confirmed there was ample reason.

The Norwich City manager said Bennett had been sick in the week leading up to Saturday's 1-0 loss to Arsenal, and, despite training on Friday, wasn't available to face the Gunners: "We were hoping he was going to be involved. He did a bit of training on Friday, the first he'd done in a week, but he took a bad reaction when we were trying to get him ready, and he wasn't ready." Without Bennett, the Canaries defense held up fairly well with Sebastien Bassong paired up with Russell Martin while Ivo Pinto started at right back in the absence of Andre Wisdom and Timm Klose.

Danny Drinkwater can consider himself a little fortunate despite his sending off at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Drinkwater picked up his second booking of the game on 86 minutes as he hauled Memphis Depay back to give away a free-kick on the edge of the Leicester penalty area. However, it could’ve been a lot more if referee Michael Oliver had deemed that the foul had taken place inside the 18-yard area. The Foxes survived the resultant Rooney free-kick and with it earned themselves a 1-1 draw to edge closer to their first Premier League title. Andy King is expected to face Everton at the King Power next weekend while Jamie Vardy will return to the squad following his suspension.
