What were the headlines making the news on this day last year? Including news from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Southampton.

The Champions League swings back into action this week with the tournament on the lips of Manchester United and Chelsea fans while the Gunners and Manchester city enjoy a rest ahead of the weekend.

Hull fans are also going to be a very happy bunch this morning following their 2-1 win over Brighton in the FA Cup.

We’ve decided to cast our minds back to take a look at the stories dominating the press on February 25 2013.

‘Cahill slams the fixture list’

Chelsea star Gary Cahill hit out at the fixture list, suggesting it was a reason for the Blues’ poor form.

Chelsea had just played their 46th game of the season by this point last year, which was a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City, prompting Cahill to criticise the scheduling.

“Unfortunately it does take its toll - We haven’t had a clear week for about 29 weeks and you’re expecting to go into games feeling 100 per cent fresh, trying to push on further in all competitions,” he told Chelsea TV.

‘Lewandowski’s agent drops exit hint’

The agent of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski told clubs interested in him to read between the lines over his future.

Cezary Kucharski said the striker never goes into the third year of his contract at a club, which prompted reports putting Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United on red alert.

“Anyone who has followed Robert's career will know that he has never played at any club for longer than two years - Anyone who can read between the lines knows what that means,” he said.

‘Liverpool legend does the Harlem Shake’

Liverpool legend Ian Rush jumped on the Harlem shake train, starring in a 30 second video with fans during the ‘Garuda Indonesia Liverpool FC Experience.

‘Arsenal profits dip’

Arsenal announced a dip in profits to £17.8 million to the end of November 2012.

The club made almost £50 million in the same period the year before, which marked a dramatic drop in financial figures for the Gunners.

‘Southampton star is top of the league’

Saints star Jos Hooiveld scored moved to the top of an individual league commemorating howlers in England’s top flight last season.

The 30-year-old centre back had put through his own net three times by this point last year which made him the top scorer in the Premier League in terms of own goals.
