  2. 'We need to take three points'

    Tottenham v Bayer Leverkusen

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham are looking to end a run of five matches without a victory when they take on Bayer Leverkusen tonight, after a promising start to the season.

    And the Argentine manager is aiming for his forwards to be more clinical to rectify their poor form.

    "We need to be more clinical in our offensive situation, we need to be determined and aggressive in the last third," he said.

    "It'll be tough but we are conscious that we need to take the three points if we want to go to the next round."

  3. Tottenham team news

    Tottenham v Bayer Leverkusen (19:45 GMT)

    Erik Lamela

    Tottenham midfielder Erik Lamela is a doubt for Wednesday's Champions League group game against Bayer Leverkusen.

    The 24-year-old has recovered from the illness that saw him miss the Leicester game on Saturday, but he suffered a hip problem in training on Tuesday.

    Spurs will also miss defender Toby Alderweireld and Striker Harry Kane through injury.

    Midfielder Moussa Sissoko - who is serving a three-match ban for elbowing Bournemouth's Harry Arter - is available as his suspension affects domestic games only.  

  4. Ranieri writing 'new chapter' at Leicester

    Copenhagen v Leicester (19:45 GMT)

    Claudio Ranieri

    Claudio Ranieri's time at Leicester has been impressive enough already - but the Italian is aiming to "write a new chapter" in their history through victory in Copenhagen tonight.

    "We are very close to achieving something special," he said.  

    "We can write a new chapter of Leicester's story. It's important to be well organised as I respect Copenhagen a lot."

  5. Leicester team news

    Copenhagen v Leicester City (19:45 GMT)

    Islam Slimani

    Leicester City will not risk record signing Islam Slimani but Ahmed Musa has recovered from a knock at Tottenham.

    Musa scored the equaliser in Saturday's 1-1 Premier League draw at White Hart Lane, a performance Ranieri rated as his side's best in the league this season.  

    The Foxes, who top Group G, will secure a top-two finish with victory in Denmark, but Copenhagen have not lost at home since August 2015.  

  6. Taxi to training: Christian Fuchs

    Ever wondered what Leicester City left-back Christian Fuchs and comedian Lloyd Griffiths would get up too if left in a car together?

    Well you're in look. During the commute, Fuchs reveals how he feels about fellow team-mates, as well as revealing which footballer's feet he wants to kiss.

    Plus there's time for a very special quiz master - Mr Gary Lineker - to make an appearance and put Christian's knowledge of the Foxes to the test.

  7. 'A lot must happen' if Evans to return


    Ched Evans

    Wales manager Chris Coleman says "a lot needs to happen" if Ched Evans is to return to international football.

    After a retrial in October, striker Evans, who has won 13 Wales caps, was found not guilty of raping a 19-year-old woman in a hotel room.

    The 27-year-old was originally found guilty of rape in 2012, but this conviction was quashed in April.

    "From the football side of it, he has missed a lot of football," said Coleman.

    Your club's best or most significant win

    James Mortimer: Burnley beating Orient, 9/5/87. If Burnley hadn't won that day, one of the founder members would have probably folded leading up to the Football League's centenary.

    Adam Paget: Mark Robins goal (against Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup in January 1990) to supposedly save Fergie's job. It begs the question what would the following 30 odd years had been like in the Premier League had it not happened?

    Rob Wayne: Bolton Wanderers drawing 2-2 against Bayern Munich in the Uefa Cup (in 2007). They had a strong side out and it really was our peak since the 50s. Going strong at that time in the Premier League, had the same players around for a few years and were moving up the spending ladder. Things have been alright since then, minus two relegations and almost becoming insolvent while watching the likes of Gary Madine turn out in a Wanderers shirt.

  9. Schweinsteiger training return is 'human and professional decision'

    Fenerbahce v Manchester United (Thursday, 18:00 GMT)

    Bastian Scweinsteiger and Jose Mourinho

    Bastian Schweinsteiger returned to first-team training earlier this week, after Jose Mourinho had previously sent him to train with the under-23 squad, as the former Germany international was not in his first-team plans.

    "Schweinsteiger is back," said Mourinho. "It was based on the fact we are in this time of the season where it is hard to train with all the players. 

    "To do the tactical sessions I want to do you need a certain number of players. The group shrinks when people are injured or recovering, many times we go to the academy to bring young boys to have a group of the perfect numbers to train. 

    "It is the human and professional decision to bring him back to the team. He will be much better prepared in case his future decision is to leave the club. 

    "If he stays with us he becomes one more option. In this moment we have no problems in midfield like we do in defence, but if we do he is one more option." 

  10. Mourinho has faith in Darmian to cover for injured Valencia

    Fenerbahce v Manchester United (Thursday, 18:00 GMT)

    Jose Mourinho is asked about the injury to Antonio Valencia, who suffered a broken arm against Manchester City in the EFL Cup.

    "Valencia is a bad injury, he has a fracture in his arm, and he's had surgery. He will be out for a while," says Mourinho.

    "The good thing is even when Antonio was playing very well we were preparing (Matteo) Darmian and he was having matches to develop himself, and when in the last match we had to play Darmian for the first time in the league he was ready to answer, and played very well. We trust him totally."

  11. 'I am happy with the performances, not the results'

    Fenerbahce v Manchester United (Thursday, 18:00 GMT)

    Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is asked whether he still has the excitement for the job.

    He replies: "Of course I'm excited and of course I'm not happy with results, that is obvious. What I am happy with is the performances. Sometimes you win matches but you feel that the period cannot last forever because the team is not playing well.

    "Other times you have results where you feel the good results have to arrive sooner or later. I have a very good feeling towards the players.

    "For me the worst feeling that a manager can have is not the bad result, but having a bad feeling with players, and that I do not have. After the bad result against Chelsea the team reacted in an unbelievable way. The number of shots we had in the last match (against Burnley) was something absolutely incredible."

    Manchester United
  12. 'The Europa League is a target'

    Fenerbahce v Manchester United (Thursday, 18:00 GMT)

    Jose Mourinho has not been too complementary of the Europa League in the past, but feels the competition is a more attractive one now.

    He says: "My opinions change because the rules change and the Europa League winner qualifies for the Champions League. For the last couple of years the Europa League has new meaning for big teams.

    "I don't change my opinion that big teams belong in the Champions League with the history, but the Europa League is a target because you can qualify for the Champions League."

    Jose Mourinho
  13. 'We lost three defenders in a week'

    Fenerbahce v Manchester United (Thursday, 18:00 GMT)

    Defender Phil Jones is in the Manchester United squad and boss Jose Mourinho is pleased to see him back in contention.

    "I can't remember when Phil Jones had a good run of matches for United, I don't remember," says Mourinho. "I remember when I was at Real Madrid in about 2012, I played against Man Utd and Phil Jones played then - I don't remember many occasions after that when Phil was ready.

    "He's having a difficult relationship with injuries and it's been a difficult period for him. He has worked hard to recover, he has been training with the team for more than a week.

    "We lost three defenders in a week in Valencia, Bailly and Smalling, and because of that we do not have enough time to give him for him to get into good condition. Maybe we have to play him."

    Phil Jones
  14. 'We are in a positive position'

    Fenerbahce v Manchester United (Thursday, 18:00 GMT)

    Jose Mourinho is asked about Manchester United's Europa League form where they lost the opening group game, but won the next two.

    He says: "The problem we had in Feyenoord we resolved by winning the next two matches and by putting ourselves in a positive position in the group.

    "If we had not won the next two matches we would be in trouble, but, no, our reaction was to win the next two matches at home - which we did - and by having six points out of six from the home matches we have put ourselves in a positive position in the group."

    Celtic's 1-1 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach last night may have left there chances of progressing to the next round of the Champions League hanging by a thread, but Scott Sinclair, Patrick Roberts and Craig Gordon are all drawing the positives from their performance.

    Celtic's Moussa Dembele celebrates his goal in Monchengladbach

    Celtic leave Germany on Wednesday afternoon with their dignity intact - perhaps restored - after a performance and result that defied pre-match predictions of another away-day humbling in Europe.

    Incredibly, this was only the fifth point they've brought home from their Champions League travels, with a win over Spartak Moscow and an unlikely draw in Barcelona their only other positive achievements in the competition on foreign soil.

    The key for Brendan Rodgers is to ensure that this result acts as a catalyst towards more consistent success away from Celtic Park, which should help him achieve his ambition of turning Celtic into a team that regularly reaches the latter stages of Europe's elite tournament.

    The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that Harry didn't just fool himself - I included his original tweet before he deleted it as well. Never trust a footballer.

    Nevertheless, Spurs fans will be hoping Harry Kane can bring that scoring touch back to their team when he returns to their after his recent injury, potentially this weekend.

  20. Southampton set for takeover?


    Reports have been circulating today that Southampton are in talks to be taken over by a China-based company.

    However, both manager Claude Puel and player James Ward-Prowse are in the dark as to details.

    "I have no idea about the situation. I give all my confidence to the president and the people at the club to do things in a good way," said Puel.

    "It's the first I have heard of it, but it is a great club, a worldwide club, so of course there is going to be world interest," added Ward-Prowse.
