Arsenal set for summer of sell-offs and play-offs

Arsenal are facing a difficult summer thanks to a probable Champions League play-off in August and a possible squad overhaul before then. Having surrendered third place in the Premier League to Manchester City on Tuesday night, the north Londoners may face the inconvenience of having to qualify for the Champions League through the play-off round. Should Arsenal fail to get a better result at Fulham on Sunday than City record at Bolton then they will finish fourth, requiring them to play two more games in August just to reach the group stage.

Ajax end seven-year itch by lifting title

Ajax snatched their 30th Dutch league title – and first for seven years – with a 3-1 home win over FC Twente yesterday. Twente, who beat Ajax last Sunday to win the Dutch Cup, began the day with a one-point lead at the top of the Eredivisie and needed only a draw to win the title for a second straight year, but Siem de Jong's double helped "the most beautiful club in Holland", as their coach Frank de Boer called them, to leapfrog their opponents at the last.

Eredivisie ready for title 'play-off'

This weekend either AFC Ajax or FC Twente will win the Dutch league title. It just so happens that they will play each other on the final day in a dramatic climax to the season.
