West Ham boss Curbishley: Premiership strongest in world

Alan Curbishley believes the Premier League is the strongest league in Europe - and would like to see an all-English Champions League final.

The Premier League has dominated this season's Champions League with three English sides reaching the semi-finals.

"I think the Champions League has been a fantastic spectacle and it just shows how strong the Premier League is with three teams in the semi-finals and Arsenal as well who put in a fantastic effort.

"You find the Premier League if you look at Derby, who for some time have been stranded, but week-in week-out putting their lot in and have took Liverpool and Manchester United to the wire.

"Other teams have played against the top four and caused upsets.

"I think the Premier League is the strongest and most competitive it has been for some time and I think that is borne out by the success of the top four in the Champions League."

Curbishley would like to see an all-English final in Moscow, but he refused to predict who would go all the way.

"Who is going to win it and who is going to get there, I don't know, but it would be nice if we could end up with a Premier league final, if that's the case.

"But for me to say who is going to be there and how it is going to happen, I don't know."
