    Can Glasner's resurgent Palace keep Olise and Eze?

    On Monday, The Athletic reported news of Bayern Munich’s attempt to prize Oliver Glasner from Crystal Palace for a hefty sum.

    That’s credit to the remarkable job Glasner has done since succeeding Roy Hodgson just three months ago.

    The Austrian coach has taken Palace to safety in style - but the big question is: can the club keep hold of their star players and their manager this summer?

    Will Arsenal's process win a title?

    After recording just a second win in 17 Premier League visits to Old Trafford Arsenal have taken the title race to the final day.
    So can Arsenal now complete the job and win the league for the first time in 20 years, despite Man City still having the title in their hands?
    If they fall short, does anything need to change next season and how long without delivering a league title can Arsenal trust the process?
