Chelsea players indulged in burgers and coke during a team barbecue today ahead of Sunday's final game of the season.

Cesc Fabregas posted a photo of himself sitting alongside Filipe Luis and Thibaut Courtois at their Cobham training base, but there was no sign of Eden Hazard.

The Belgian wing-wizard could miss the match against Sunderland after being forced to undergo emergency dental surgery this week.

Jose Mourinho struggled not to laugh when discussing the matter earlier.

Red Devils stopper De Gea has enjoyed a sensational campaign, saving United on numerous occasions with world class saves.

The Spaniard's form has seen him linked with European giants Real Madrid, where long-serving skipper Iker Casillas is coming under increased scrutiny for his performances.

Writing in his Independent column, Old Trafford legend Scholes explains why he thinks Louis van Gaal should move for Cech, who has been displaced by Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge this season.

Scholes said:

If De Gea does go, United should sign Petr Cech.

Cech has only just turned 33. He could potentially play another six years for United. There would be no concern about having to give him time to play his way into the position or the demands that the Premier League makes of a goalkeeper new to the country.

United won’t want to lose De Gea but there is a solution in the offing.

Chelsea star misses award after emergency surgery

Football Writers' Player of The Year Eden Hazard will not be able to collect his award after undergoing emergency dental surgery.

The Chelsea winger was due to pick up his gong at a glitzy dinner in London tonight, and will now collect his prize at Chelsea's final Premier League game of the season this weekend.

It's believed that Hazard has been forced to have three wisdom teeth removed and is unlikely to feature in Sunday's match against Sunderland.

Jose Mourinho's champions suffered just their fourth loss in all competitions on Monday night, falling to a 3-0 Premier League defeat at The Hawthorns as West Brom ended their 16-game unbeaten run.

Chelsea, who had Cesc Fabregas sent off, struggled to rouse themselves for the contest with the title secure, but the Baggies had no such trouble as a Saido Berahino double earned victory.

The loss means Chelsea can no longer reach the 90-point mark, but France striker Remy wants the Blues to finish on a high against Sunderland on Sunday before the trophy is presented and the west London victory parade the following day.

He said:

"Next season every team will really want to beat the champions, as West Brom did, and we have to prepare ourselves for this kind of game. Next season will be even more difficult than this one because of that.

Now we have one game coming at home, the last game of the season, and we really want to win it in front of our supporters.

Today's transfer talk is dominated by champions Chelsea and rivals Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho has been linked with a double raid on City's squad, for fringe striker Edin Dzeko, 29, and mercurial midfielder Yaya Toure, 32.

The Chelsea head coach sees Dzeko as a replacement for Blues legend Didier Drogba, while Toure is known to be seeking a move away from the Etihad – his agent has reportedly been contacted by a high-profile Premier League club, with PSG also said to be interested.
