    Captain Eoin Morgan said a spinning pitch would be "a good test" for the winter tours of Bangladesh and India.

    "It will be a very tough series, especially as conditions may suit them more than they suit us," he said.

    EFL Cup second round

    Nigel Clough

    Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough is ready to meet Liverpool's charismatic boss Jurgen Klopp ahead of their EFL Cup second-round game on Tuesday.

    The Brewers boss told BBC Radio Derby he is not just happy to face the eight-time winners of the cup but to see the "lively character" himself.

    "Everybody gets carried away a little bit in that 90 minutes at times but I think it's wonderful that we've got people like him in English football," he said.

    "I think generally what you see on the touchline in 90 minutes is, in some way, a true representation of the person."

  6. Southampton's Europa League offer


    Southampton announce a European ticket offer, which will allow fans to watch all three of their Europa League group stage home games for £48.

  7. He might not be Messi, but will he start?

    EFL Cup second round

    Having reached the fourth round last season, Crystal Palace will want to improve this time around, rather than find themselves on the wrong end of an upset as they face League Two Blackpool on Tuesday. 

    The big question surrounding Selhurst Park is whether manager Alan Pardew will unleash club record signing Christian Benteke. 

    He might not be Lionel Messi but having not scored a goal so far this season, Palace are in desperate need of goals if they want to start winning games.

    It would be one way to introduce yourself to the home fans...

    Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has arrived in Manchester ahead of a proposed move to join Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

  9. Andre Gray charged by FA


    Tweets from four years ago were brought to light at the weekend after Andre Gray scored Burnley's second goal against Liverpool in the 2-0 win.

    The 25-year-old Premier League player asked for 'forgiveness' at the weekend after a series of homophobic tweets came to light.

    Gray said he was now a "completely different person" to the one who posted the messages and he did not "hold the beliefs written in those tweets".

    The player has until 6pm on 31 August to respond to the charge.

  10. Lukaku set to face Yeovil


    Ronald Koeman will not make wholesale changes to his Everton team when they entertain League Two Yeovil in the second round of the EFL Cup later.

    "I’m a new manager in a new club, and we are trying to change things and do things in a different way than they used to be," said Koeman, who left Southampton in the summer.

    “Some players will get a rest but I won’t change eight or nine positions because I don’t believe that’s the best way to win something.”  

    Forward Romelu Lukaku, defender Ashley Williams and winger Yannick Bolasie are all expected to feature at Goodison Park.

  11. BreakingGray charged by FA


    Andre Gray

    Winger Victor Moses says Chelsea are targeting domestic cup success as the club are not in European competition.

    Antonio Conte takes charge of his first knockout game as Blues boss when League One Bristol Rovers visit Stamford Bridge later.

    "We want to carry on winning matches but this won’t be an easy game, they’re a League One side and it’s often difficult to play against teams from the lower leagues," says Moses, 25.

    "This season every trophy is important, whether it’s the League Cup, FA Cup or Premier League. I think it’s going to be a very interesting season for us."

  13. 'Hart to start Champions League tie'

    It’s understood Joe Hart has been told he will start for Manchester City in their Champions League qualifying play-off second leg at home to Steaua Bucharest on Wednesday.

  14. Will it be penalties for Stoke again?

    EFL Cup second round

    Mark Hughes

    Premier League Stoke City travel to Stevenage in the EFL Cup second round and are looking for a safer passage through to the next round after a scare at Luton Town last season.

    The Potters were taken to a penalty shootout at Kenilworth Road where they held their nerve to emerge 8-7 winners from the spot. 

    Having been heavily beaten at home by Manchester City at the weekend, Stoke will not want a second defeat in a matter of days. 

    Stevenage revel in upsets having knocked out Championship side Ipswich Town in the first round this season.

  15. 'We are shocked by the decision'

  16. Newcastle's Mbabu joins Young Boys

    Four-time Olympic champion Laura Trott is frustrated rival riders have questioned Britain's Rio track success. British riders won six gold medals, four silvers and one bronze in Brazil, having taken 12 medals at London 2012.

    World championships in between have yielded fewer medals and several rivals - including Australia's Anna Meares - have questioned the team's improvement.

    "It is a little bit frustrating because there's a lot of hard work gone into that performance," Trott, 24, said.

  18. Bravo on his way to City


    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    As predicted earlier, Pep Guardiola wasn't for talking about Claudio Bravo at today's Manchester City press conference. But the three words he used before saying Bravo was someone else's player and therefore off limits said everything the assembled media needed to know.

    Sometimes in football, you have to read between the lines to understand what is being said. In this instance Guardiola's "I cannot deny" reports Bravo is on his way to Manchester for a medical was enough to confirm he is.

    So if we know that bit of the goalkeeping conundrum, the question now is what happens with the next, namely Joe Hart's future. As it presently stands, Hart is in line to become City's number three keeper. By 23:00BST on 31 August, by which time all transfer business has to be done, he would hope to have rectified that.

  19. 'Celtic will be fine'


    Former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner is over in Israel to cover the Champions League game against Hapoel Beer Sheva for BBC Scotland.

    He joined presenter Phil Goodlad on Good Morning Scotland earlier and told listeners his old team will "be fine" tonight as they seek a place in the group stage - just as long as they avoid losing an early goal.

    "That's going to be absolutely critical, that first half hour," said the Irishman.

    "They've got to manage the game in a professional manner as they are three goals up. They shouldn't have any fears and they just need to get on the ball and move it around the pitch. If they do that and do what they've been doing in the last few games and in the first half last week then they'll be fine."

  20. York City goalkeeper banned for racial abuse

    The 30-year-old, who denied the charge, has also been fined £1,250 and must complete an education course.
