Hazard gets your vote

That's a wrap then. Chelsea edge closer, they've been edging since about September.

Eden Hazard had a quiet game this afternoon but he won your vote to be the player of the year with 34.5% of the vote. Alexis Sanchez came second with 22% and Harry Kane 19.1%.

The genuine PFA awards will be announced later on tonight.

See you next week!

'I am grateful forever'

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea's former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas: "I won't deny that it was special day for me. Last night I thought about many moments and I'm glad it ended this way.

"To be substituted at the end and feel the love of the Arsenal fans meant a lot to me. I'm grateful for the life they gave me. Some people will be disappointed in me for the reasons why I left but I am grateful forever."

Should he have had a penalty?

"He [Santi Cazorla] definitely touched me, I don't know if I could have stood up more but he touched me and that's why I fell. The referee told me he would look at it after and learn from it."

Boring boring Arsenal?

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

BBC Radio 5 live

BBC Radio 5 live's Rob Nothman asked Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho about the chants of 'boring boring Chelsea' at the end of the game. This was the response:

"I don't think it was boring Chelsea. I think it was boring something else. The fans want to win it and they took Giroud off. The fans wanted Walcott and Giroud on together. I don't think it was boring Chelsea, it was boring Arsenal."

Bayern win the title

German Bundesliga

Bayern Munich clinched their third consecutive Bundesliga title courtesy of

Wolfsburg's 1-0 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach.

Pep Guardiola's side beat Hertha Berlin 1-0 on Saturday to put them within sight of the title.

Wolfsburg had to beat Gladbach, who move up to third, to make Bayern wait another week for their 25th title, but lost to an injury-time Max Kruse goal.

Treble-chasing Bayern are in the Champions League and German Cup semis.

They will have little time to celebrate this success as they face rivals Borussia Dortmund in the last four of the domestic cup on Tuesday.

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Was that John Terry's finest ever performance as Jose Mourinho said?

He didn't win a single tackle but made 13 clearances. The most in the game.

Bournemouth are facing Bolton on Monday night and a win would all but guarantee the Cherries a place in the Premier League.

Join us for commentary of that game. What an achievement that would be for Eddie Howe and his side...

'Maybe Arsenal are happy to be second'

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho tells Match of the Day: "We want to win. We tried to win. But the game was difficult, against a very good team and it was not possible to win. We had a game plan - in the first half we were very dangerous, in spite of Arsenal making lots of fouls to stop counter attacks.

"Second half we were less dangerous. But the team was very solid. We know we need five points (it's actually six Jose) to be champions. It is not for us to gamble at the end of the game. Arsenal took off Olivier Giroud near the end and maybe Arsenal are happy to be second and happy with a point."

'It is impossible to lose it now'

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "We produced a performance that was requested. In the first half we played with the right intensity but we lacked the right decisions. In the second half our intensity dropped and it was too comfortable for Chelsea.

"In the final few minutes we had dangerous situations and we have regrets about some chances. Both teams defended well and lacked something in the final third.

"Look, they had an appeal for a penalty in the first half when the referee played advantage but I would have to look at them again."

Is Cesc Fabregas the type to dive? "You don't have to be a certain type of player to try and win a penalty in a massive game.

"I believe that we played with the handbrake on at times. We were conscious of being hit on the counter attack and it was important not to lose. We were still on a strong run.

"Chelsea will be champions. We know that. It is impossible to lose it now."

Oscar in hospital

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho also says that Oscar is in hospital having a scan after his collision with goalkeeper David Ospina.

I've seen a few people commenting on Mesut Ozil's performance again so it's worth pointing out that Ozil had the most touches (107) and created the most chances (four) in this game.

'Not enough energy or pace'

606 phone-in

BBC Radio 5 live

Tune into BBC Radio 5 live now to listen to 606 and Ian Wright's thoughts on the day's action.

Wrighty says: "Arsenal took too long going forward. There wasn't enough energy or pace. Arsenal needed to be able to break the lines with intricate play. Chelsea fans should be delighted though."

Text us on 81111

Matt, Skegness: Chelsea will be Champions but not very good ones I am afraid, better judged in the two PSG legs rather than in a weak league right now. Still, you can only beat what is in front of you and they have done that this season

Rob, Belfast: Jose will always set up so not to lose against the top four teams. Will take a draw all day, means rivals cannot close gap and Chelsea will pick the points up elsewhere. Efficient!

Edward, Bristol: I do wonder whether Jose's team talk against top sides is basically standing up and saying 'oh, the usual'

Rob, Woodford Green: It's fashionable not to like Chelsea but if AC Milan did that, we'd all be praising their discipline. It's awkward that Chelsea had more shots on target. Arsenal not good enough.

'The best John Terry has ever played'

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho: "It is a point. We need five to be Champions and we are in the countdown. We need points so if we get three points in the next game, we need two, if we get one, we need four. If we lose we need five. The team is very confident and playing extremely well so we know it is in our hands.

Jose MOurinho

"We got what we got. I leave it to you to analyse but we performed very, very, very well. Against a team in second place with nothing to lose and everything to win. The game was under in control.

"I told John Terry in the dressing room that he made fantastic performances with me but this was his best.

"It was the best JT has ever played. It was absolutely amazing."

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

I think it has, Per. I think it has.

Arsenal recorded one shot on target in their two league fixtures combined against Chelsea this season.

'Maybe the title is gone'

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker tells Sky Sports: "We gave everything, had a couple of chances and defended well. It was a good performance, but not enough to get the vital three points we needed to compete for first place.

"We deserved the point, but could have done better in the final third. We lacked the final pass maybe. I had a chance but I rushed myself.

"I thought the referee did a great job - he concentrated on his job.

"Maybe the title is gone but you never know, we will stay there until the end."

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Are Chelsea boring or just thoroughly professional? It may be an entertainment business to some but it's ultimately a results business and you can't argue with Jose Mourinho's results. He does not lose to other big teams.

'Chelsea have nullified the threat'

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Jermaine Jenas, BBC Radio 5 live

Former England midfielder

"I think Chelsea felt the only team that could feasibly catch them were Arsenal and Chelsea have nullified that threat here today.

"There's a difference between parking the bus and keeping the ball. It wasn't just clearing the ball and defending from Chelsea, they kept the ball really well today."

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Arsenal can still get to 82 points so six more points will secure the title for Chelsea.

'It's in our hands'

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea captain John Terry: "It is a big step to where we want to go. Its not done mathematically but it's a big step. Listen, Arsenal are a very good side and they have world-class players but we nullified them.

"Everyone expected us to come and sit like we did against Manchester United but we gave it a go in the first half. Second half we kept the ball more. The referee got all of the decisions right I thought.

"We are almost there but we have a tough game against Leicester on Wednesday. It's in our hands."

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea can now not win the league against Leicester on Wednesday but they could be champions next weekend when they face Crystal Palace.

'Arsenal should have done more'

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Jermaine Jenas, BBC Radio 5 live

Former England midfielder

"Chelsea will be delighted with their performance. Arsenal will feel they should have done more. If they had got the ball out wide to the full-backs more, they would have crossed along the deck and that's harder to deal with.

"There are some serious celebrations going on among the Chelsea players. John Terry is throwing a clenched fist towards the fans. I think that shows you what they went out to get and they got it. Arsenal did not ask enough questions."

YELLOW CARD

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

A playground foul from Santi Cazorla, stretching out a leg to trip up Eden Hazard as he tried to burst clear. Stick-on booking.

CLOSE!

Best chance of the half! Nacho Monreal gets around the back, his low cross is turned on by Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck can't adjust his feet quickly enough to steer it in from four yards out!

SUBSTITUTION

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Plenty of jeers, but some applause, as Cesc Fabregas is replaced by Kurt Zouma. Fabregas claps the fans and plenty more of them then respond with applause of their own.

YELLOW CARD

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Eden Hazard skips away from Aaron Ramsey in midfield - we've not seen much of that today - and Ramsey tugs him back. Booking.

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Didier Drogba almost puts Ramires in on goal in a rare Chelsea counter but his pass is a heavy one. Three minutes to go.

Thibaut Courtois needs some treatment after knocking his head as he claims a corner but the big keeper is alright. Arsenal make a change as Theo Walcott replaces Olivier Giroud.

Laurent Koscielny turns into a winger own the left, beating Didier Drogba on the left, driving forwards and picking out Santi Cazorla. But Cazorla's shot is wild.

Arsenal bring off Francis Coquelin for Danny Welbeck. Is that the move that wins this game for either side?

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott are both warming up. Someone needs to liven us up.

'Boring, boring Chelsea' is the chant from the home fans.
