Rodgers: Fabregas should have been sent off

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas ought to have been dismissed for his early tackle on Raheem Sterling during Sunday's 1-1 draw.

In the first minute of the Premier League meeting at Stamford Bridge, Fabregas caught Sterling on the ankle with a dangerous challenge.

The Spaniard was booked by referee Andre Marriner.

"Fabregas should have been sent off," Rodgers said. "He was out of control, diving and stretching and Raheem has done well to stay on the field and play ever so well.

"It was early in the game but that doesn't matter. It was a bad challenge and he deserved a red card for that."

Gerrard cancelled out Terry's early opener, before being given a respectful ovation from the Chelsea fans when he was substituted late on as Liverpool's slim hopes of UEFA Champions League qualification were effectively ended.

"Brilliant, that was the reason for it [taking Gerrard off]," said Rodgers of the applause for his departing captain. "You see the importance that he has for the team.

"He's taken a lot of stick here but I think the Chelsea supporters knew deep down it's only because he's a superstar player and he's been a thorn in their side for many years. It was nice for him to get that touch."

"Obviously that's been the issue for us this season, our lack of goals has really hurt us but the players have done everything," he added.

"We want to finish well but for us it's pretty clear the areas we need to improve in and if we can do that over the summer then hopefully that'll set us back on the track again."

Toure talks to wait - Pellegrini

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says he will not discuss the future of midfielder Yaya Toure until a more appropriate time.

Toure's agent was quoted on Thursday as saying his client was "90 per cent" certain to leave the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season.

"We talk about the next season in the right moment," he said at a pre-match news conference.

"Yaya has a contract here until 2017. We are focussed on our team and the players."

Van Gaal: I was forced to sign Depay

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he was "forced" to sign Memphis Depay to prevent him from joining Paris Saint-Germain.
Depay joins Manchester United
It was confirmed on Thursday that winger Depay would move to Old Trafford from PSV for an undisclosed fee, an announcement that ended 12 months of speculation linking the 21-year-old with a transfer to the Premier League.
Van Gaal insists that - in an ideal world - he would not have delved into the transfer market until the end of the season. 
"I have been forced to sign him," he said. "I don't want to sign before the end of the season because we have to focus on our games and, when you sign a player, you disturb the focus of your present group pf players.
"And the coming matches are very important for Manchester United.
"Because of the market, I must handle because he would have signed for PSG. That's why I signed Memphis Depay."
"At that time he was not reached by me because I don't want to speak with players before the season has been ended," he added. "I have also a feeling towards my players.
"But now, because of the close relationship I have with the management of PSV, I could handle it."
