    Burnley boss Sean Dyche has been speaking at a news conference and is asked if he is worried at his side's three-game losing run.

    He replies: "We have already had our fair share of ups and downs, only three games it is not a big thing for teams that have just been promoted.

    "It is about keeping the team in the division in the first season and then build on that for the second one."

  14. Each game becoming harder - Monk

    Brighton v Leeds (Friday, 19:45 GMT)

    Leeds manager Garry Monk is focused on dealing with growing expectations before Friday's Championship clash at Brighton. 

    Monk, who was appointed Leeds boss in June, has engineered a revival of fortunes at the Yorkshire club after a slow start to the season, with Leeds currently fourth after winning five of their last six league games. 

    "Each game for every club becomes harder and more important now, because teams tend to find out now what they are fighting for this season," Monk told Leeds' official website.

    "It will be another massive test for us and our young group, but one we want to see the team come through with a good performance."

  17. Rooney and Bailly set to return for Manchester United

    Zorya Luhansk v Manchester United (18:00 GMT)

    Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is set to feature after returning from suspension while defender Eric Bailly, an unused substitute at Goodison Park on Sunday, is also in the squad having recovered from a knee injury.

    Midfielder Michael Carrick and full-backs Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian - who all started Sunday's 1-1 draw at Everton - have been left at home, with Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin also overlooked for United's trip to Ukraine.

    United have to avoid defeat in Ukraine to progress to the last 32.

    The match is set to go ahead following a pitch inspection at the Chornomorets Stadium on Thursday morning.

  18. Tadic could play in mask

    Southampton v Hapoel Be'er Sheva (20:05 GMT)

    Southampton forward Dusan Tadic could play in a facemask during his side's Europa League group game against Hapoel Be'er Sheva.

    Tadic, 28, has not featured since breaking his nose while playing for Serbia against Wales in November.

    Saints will finish second in their group and reach the last 32 with a win or a goalless draw. But a win for Hapoel, or a score draw, would see the Israeli side progress to the knockout stage.

  20. Koeman wants more from Barkley

    Watford v Everton (Saturday, 12:30 GMT)

    Everton boss Ronald Koeman has said midfielder Ross Barkley needs to do more to secure a regular spot in the first team. 

    The England international did not feature in last weekend's 1-1 draw against Manchester United and Koeman said: "He played a lot, he did not play last weekend and that is the competition we have in the squad. 

    "If you like to play you need to show that to the manager during the whole week and he is trying to do his best. We know he is one of the players who needs to bring more productivity and that is the talk we had about his situation. 

    "Sometimes it can be a tactical reason, sometimes I expect more from Ross Barkley but I expect more from other players offensively."
