Chelsea will face an in-form Manchester United on Saturday as they try to move one step closer to the Premier League title at Stamford Bridge. Jose Mourinho's table-toppers are currently seven points in front of second-placed Arsenal, who are involved in FA Cup semi-final action against Reading at Wembley on Saturday. Third-placed United are a point further back, having played a game more than Chelsea, but Louis van Gaal's men will arrive in London on a run of six successive wins. Chelsea need just 12 points from their seven remaining matches to win their first league title since 2010 and while a defeat on Saturday wouldn't spell the end of their challenge, it would give the chasing pack a glimmer of hope.
The Islamic State (IS) group claimed to have carried out a deadly suicide attack in eastern Afghanistan Saturday that killed at least 33 people and injured more than 100, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said, in what, if verified, would be the first major attack claimed by the jihadist group in the country. The Taliban did not claim responsibility for the attack, Daesh (IS) claimed responsibility for the attack," President Ghani said on a visit to northeastern Badakhshan province. "Thirty-three dead bodies and more than 100 wounded were brought to the hospital," Dr Najeebullah Kamawal, head of the provincial hospital, told AFP. Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a provincial government spokesman, confirmed the attack -- the deadliest since November.
