    BBC Radio Manchester

    As expected, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola refused to be drawn when asked about the two bids the club have made for the West Brom captain Jonny Evans. Guardiola said he did not want to talk about another club's player despite West Brom boss Tony Pulis confirming the Baggies had turned down two bids for the Northern Irishman.

    In terms of any other incoming transfer, Guardiola was similarly guarded. The only confirmation he would give was that the club would "try to do the best squad for the long season."

    Guardiola confirmed the Blues have no new injury concerns ahead of the game against Everton on Monday, only that Benjamin Mendy, Fabian Delph and Ilkay Gundogan were all still on the comeback trail.

  11. 'Everton are one of the best'

    Manchester City v Everton (Mon, 20:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on Everton: "Everton are a top squad and they have bought good players.

    "They are one of the best teams in the league - I am sure of that."

  12. 'Gundogan is doing really well'

    Manchester City v Everton (Mon, 20:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on injuries: "Ilkay Gundogan has come back, Benjamin Mendy is still not 100% but is almost done and it is the same with Fabian Delph.

    "Gundogan is doing really well, we have to be 100% sure, but he played a few minutes and that is the first step."

  13. 'My players are the best'

    Manchester City v Everton (Mon, 20:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on Jonny Evans: "He is a player of West Brom. Tony Pulis was clear.

    "We will see how the market will finish. I know how well the club works. Some things are possible and some things are not.

    "I believe my players are the best. We will decide what is the best to make our club stronger."

  14. Guardiola's Barcelona tribute

    Manchester City v Everton (Mon, 20:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on Barcelona attacks: "My thoughts are with the people who died. Barcelona will wake up and show again how beautiful Catalonia is."

  16. 'Tottenham are challenging for the title'

    Tottenham v Chelsea (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea manager Antonio Conte on Tottenham: "I think they are doing a great job this year. Mauricio Pochettino is doing a great job. He has built a great base, a foundation for his club.

    "We must do the same. We do not have these bases. We must try to do the same. I have great respect for Tottenham. They are challenging for the title."

    Antonio Conte
  17. 'I trust Christensen'

    Tottenham v Chelsea (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea manager Antonio Conte on playing youth: "I utilised different young players last season - Nathaniel Chalobah and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

    "For a club like Chelsea, if I have players ready to play, I am the first person to be happy. It is right for the players to progress.

    "I trust Andreas Christensen. He is a player ready to play for Chelsea. Last week he played a good game. He can improve a lot."

    Andreas Christensen
  18. 'I prefer him Luiz centre-back'

    Tottenham v Chelsea (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea manager Antonio Conte on David Luiz: "In the past he played in the midfield. I prefer him to play central defence.

    "We are trying to find a different solution. He is a player to play in different solutions, it is a pleasure to have this sort of player."

    David Luiz
  19. 'I face a difficult situation'

    Tottenham v Chelsea (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea manager Antonio Conte on injuries: "Eden Hazard is improving, but to be fully fit we must have patience and do the best for him.

    "Tiemoue Bakayoko is improving very well, he is not at the top of physical condition, but I think he can be in contention for the game, because I do not have another midfielder.

    "His situation is not easy at the moment, it could force me to make a different decision. At this moment some players don’t have 100%.

    "Pedro has trained with us today, he had pain in his ankle. I don’t know if he is available on the bench.

    "Alvaro Morata is another player to continue to work to. We have to find the right solution, I have to face a difficult situation."

  20. 'We must be ready for this situation'

    Tottenham v Chelsea (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea manager Antonio Conte: "You know very well our situation after these two red cards given to Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas against Burnley.

    "We are preparing very well and must be focused on the pitch, on the game to do our best, to not find an excuse.

    "It can happen to receive two red cards, they miss the next game but a club like Chelsea must be ready for this situation."
