    Championship-bound Aston Villa haven't picked up a point since the start of February. They came mighty close against Watford last weekend, but two late Troy Deeney goals ruined that. 

    This weekend Sunderland and Norwich - the other clubs in the bottom three - will be hoping they can end their losing streak when they host Newcastle.

    "The Watford performance gives me encouragement – but not getting the win was difficult to take," said Villa boss Eric Black. "We have to ensure more of the same performance-wise on Saturday and give something back to the fans.

    "Newcastle have exceptional players with an exceptional manager who has managed at the highest level."

  7. Southampton news conference

    Tottenham v Southampton (Sun, 13:30 BST)

    Ronald Koeman says it would be a "big achievement" if his side can claim at least four points between now and the end of the season and beat their record Premier League points haul from last season.

    With his team seventh in the league, he also says he was delighted by Liverpool's Europa League semi-final victory on Thursday because it potentially increases Southampton's chances of qualifying for the competition next season.

    Koeman also says the gap between the richest clubs and the rest in the Premier League has closed.  

    He adds: "What you see in the Premier league now is that there is not a big difference... that gap is not so big and that gap is showed by Leicester, by West Ham and by Southampton last season and this season.

    "The achievement of Leicester is great for football."

  8. Southampton news conference

    Tottenham v Southampton (Sun, 13:30 BST)

    Ronald Koeman is asked about his own future at Southampton and says it will be discussed after the end of the season.

    "I had a short talk yesterday afternoon about the future and said 'let's have a coffee and a talk after the Crystal Palace game'.

    "Everybody knows that I have one year left on my contract. If the club wants to talk about that, I listen."

    When it's put to him that it's nice to be wanted by Southampton and other clubs, he responds: "It's nice to be wanted by Southampton."

  9. West Ham sign Dragonn

    Football

    Here is what Slaven Bilic has had to say: This is a big move for West Ham United,” he said. “I have heard that Sean is a big player in the e-sports arena so I am delighted that we have managed to secure his services.

    “I hope he can now go on to represent the club with pride across the globe - he will certainly have the support of all the lads whenever he dons the claret and blue.”

  10. Southampton news conference

    Tottenham v Southampton (Sun, 13:30 BST)

    Southampton boss Ronald Koeman says he expects Tottenham to react well to the disappointment on missing out on the Premier League title.

    The Dutchman adds: "I expect them to be strong. Of course they had maybe a little bit of disappoint last Monday. It was a tough match [against Chelsea] and maybe both teams were a little bit too worked up in that game."

    Koeman believes Sunday's game at White Hart Lane will be a very different spectacle.

    "In my opinion, some teams play fantastic football: one of them is Tottenham and one of them is Southampton and that makes it nice because it's all about football."

    "Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores is an admirer of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as he attempts to do the double over him when the sides meet at Anfield. The Hornets beat the Europa League finalists 3-0 in December. 

    'He (Klopp) was worried. They hadn’t played well but I told him they would be ok. You need time and have belief in your manager. I love this coach and the way he manages and coaches players.  

    'It’s possible they will change their team but if so it will be the same idea with different players. They play quickly, get players in the box, love to run, have lots of speed and are clever.'"

I remember perfectly how we suffered at Anfield until we got the pass to the final. 

    'I know what the atmosphere at Anfield will be like. It will be very tough and they are really happy now with the performance of the team so we need to take care.'"

    "It is not easy to reach semi-final of Champions League and keep your mind on the Premier League. Apart from Southampton game we did that. In the last five games, we have won four and lost one. 

    "This season for a lot of media, it finished on 1 February when people started talking about next season, who was leaving and who was staying. The players have had to read that."

    After accepting an FA charge of violent conduct, Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele is likely to face at least a three-game ban after appearing to eye-gouge Chelsea striker Diego Costa on Monday.

    "All the people that play football knows situations like Monday can happen. Maybe we agree in theory but to apply this is difficult. 

    "When you play for the title it is difficult to keep calm. I feel proud of my players. We show big character. Sometimes you cross the line and if you do that you need to pay. 

    "It is a good lesson for us. We need to learn a lot for next season. We will be stronger next season."
