Chelsea cancel victory parade after Manchester bomb attack

Nigeria star Victor Moses believes Chelsea's Premier League title success has been down to hard work from the players and the manager, as he turns his attention to Saturday's FA Cup final against Arsenal. "We are sure our fans will understand this decision", Chelsea said.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) and Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have congratulated Super Eagles attacker, Victor Moses, for his role in English Premier League triumph with Chelsea last Sunday.

Not only in England were there messages of support and solidarity with those affected by the tragic bombing.

Wenger's long time rival, former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, has told Sky Sports the pressure his former foe has been under is "ridiculous".

"I think to this city, Manchester, and Mancunians, that I love deeply".

Chelsea benefited from having no European distractions, allowing Conte to lean heavily on a very tight group of first-team players, and adding depth to his squad is now of fundamental importance.

"It's hard but it's now something that's behind me and you can't change it. I always feel close to you".

PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS Chelsea have cancelled their planned victory parade through London this weekend following Monday night's attack on Manchester Arena that killed 22 people and injured scores more. Football is a game full of pomp and ceremony and plenty is left for both before and after kick off, but JT, presumably wanting the stadium to be as full as possible, made a decision to pull his stunt midway through a half forcing the traveling fans and indeed everyone who just wanted to watch a game of football to indulge him.

The Gunners have only failed to win a final once over the quarter of a century - losing 2-1 to Liverpool in 2001.
