  4. 'West Ham are on a revenge mission'

    West Ham v Tottenham (20:00 BST)

    Jonathan Pearce

    BBC commentator

    "I've said on the BBC that in 30 years of commentating on Spurs this is the closest I've seen to a Tottenham title-winning side. But they must win this.

    "The 1986-87 Clive Allen goal-glut side and the Gazza-Waddle team were thrilling. But this side is more balanced, potent, secure and consistently good at the right time.

    "A 10th league win on the spin for the first time since 1960 would guarantee Champions League group stage football.

    "But West Ham, needing victory for mathematical safety, are on a revenge mission having been denied a win at White Hart Lane by two last-gasp Harry Kane goals in November.

    "He could win it again in a fierce encounter."

    Video caption: Premier League predictions: Leicester fans Kasabian predict this weekend's scores

    Lawro has taken on Kasabian's Tom Meighan and Serge Pizzorno this week. Here are their predictions for Friday's match.

    Lawro says:

    "West Ham have only won one of their past 11 games and speculation over manager Slaven Bilic's future does not look like it is going away.

    "Tottenham, meanwhile, just keep on winning - if they pick up three points at the London Stadium, it would be their 10th victory in a row.

    "Spurs don't concede many goals and the way they are winning is very impressive, as well as the results themselves. It is very difficult not to back them at the moment.

    "I still think the title is beyond Tottenham because I do not see Chelsea slipping up - but I don't see Mauricio Pochettino's side dropping points either."

    Lawro's prediction: 0-2

    Tom's prediction: Tottenham are flying. 0-3

    Serge's prediction: 0-2

    BBC Sport

    With Sam Allardyce his next opponent, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been talking about style of English football. 

    "In this league, everything happens in the boxes. In other leagues, the people in the middle take care of the process. Here, nothing happens in the middle."

    It doesn't seem the ideal place for Guardiola's brand of passing football. Yet, he says he knew all about it before he came.

    "It’s no surprise because I was a fan of the Premier League as a teenager, as an adult, as a player and as a manager."

  11. Silva still out for City

    It has been hoped David Silva would be fit to play against Crystal Palace tomorrow after pictures of the Manchester City midfielder were published of him training yesterday.

    However, Pep Guardiola has confirmed the optimism around Silva, who suffered a knee injury in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Arsenal a fortnight ago, was misplaced.

    "Yesterday was his first training session. After the reaction in the semi-final of the FA Cup, he’s still not perfect.

    Guardiola also said striker Sergio Aguero and defender John Stones are also still injured.

  12. Guardiola praises Benteke

    Manchester City v Crystal Palace (Sat, 13:30 BST)

    Pep Guardiola has paid a huge compliment to Palace striker Christian Benteke.

    He said: "Palace have huge quality in their strikers. When they arrive, Benteke is one of the strongest players in the box in the world

    "Sam Allardyce is a top coach and what they do is perfect. He took over a team in a bad situation and they make good results."

  13. Champions League qualification is 'still in our hands'

    Manchester City v Crystal Palace (Sat, 13:30 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City are fourth in the league, three points behind Liverpool with a game in hand. They are a point clear of neighbours Manchester United who are in fifth.

    Speaking about the battle for a top four place, he said: "It is still in our hands. If we win all four games, we will definitely be in the Champions League, maybe in the third position."

    City have struggled playing at the Etihad this season with eight wins from 16 games, but 11 victories from 18 on their travels.

    He added: "I definitely prefer to play at home than away. Hopefully we can play with the same enthusiasm as we do away.

    "I thought home games would be easier than away. We will try to keep our away record and improve our home record next season.

    "The team was more inconsistent than consistent this season. That’s why we suffered. I realise how they play here and I have to adapt."

  14. Post update

    Right, few more lines from that City news conference to bring you next.

  15. 'Boro game won't be easy'

    Chelsea v Middlesbrough (Mon, 20:00 BST)

    More from Antonio Conte: "We must play a great game and try to take three points. With only four games to go it's important to win. It won't be easy.

    "Our plan is to continue to work very hard and prepare for the final four games and then the FA Cup final.

    "Pressure at this stage of the season is normal. You must cope with this. Everyone at the club has experience to face it.

    "Middlesbrough have to win, and for us it's the same."

  16. 'I have not discussed Costa's future with him'

    The big transfer rumour this week has linked Chelsea striker Diego Costa with a big money move to China.

    But Antonio Conte says he does not know about the rumours and has not discussed the issue with Costa.

    "I don't know about this, I have not discussed future with Costa," said Conte.

    "It is important for every single player and person to work for Chelsea, to focus on the present, it is important for us, more important than the future. We have to be focused and concentrated to prepare in the right way for these games from now until the end."
