Can JD kill Arsenal’s top four hopes?

Arsenal’s path to the top four is simple: Win both their remaining games and hope Liverpool drop points against Middlesborough. (There is a path past Manchester City as well, but that seems less likely.) The first obstacle to that route is today’s match with Sunderland and former Spurs man Jermain Defoe. It’d be a fitting end to the season that saw St. Tott’s Day canceled to also have an ex-Spur player kill off their top four hopes, right? (I’m going with it, at least. :) )

Inter linked to Poche. LOL. Really. I’m not joking. (Thought experiment: How long will it take the Milan clubs to realize they’re no longer relevant?)

Diego Costa has probably played his last match of consequence for Chelsea. So why not enjoy the halftime buffet?
