    That's all from today's footy news conferences and therefore that's all from us.

    Join us tomorrow for all the action from the Premier League.

    Ciao for now....

  2. Spurs and Burnley team news...

    Tottenham v Burnley (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Tottenham await news on whether record signing Davinson Sanchez will receive clearance in time to play.

    The trio of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Erik Lamela and Danny Rose remain on the sidelines.

    Burnley forward Jonathan Walters has been ruled out after injuring his ankle against Blackburn on Wednesday.

    Manager Sean Dyche must decide whether or not to hand record signing Chris Wood his full debut.

  3. Perisic '99% dead' for Man Utd

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    I am told Manchester United’s attempt to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan is 99% dead.

    The two clubs were close to agreeing a deal at one point this summer but the gap could not be bridged and Perisic has been playing – and scoring for Inter in the opening games of the season.

    It would take something extraordinary to happen for that transfer to be concluded now.

    Does Jose Mourinho have another option?

    Maybe he will tell us when he speaks to the media at 1330BST.

  4. 'The team will improve'

    Newcastle v West Ham (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez has been speaking to the media ahead of tomorrow's home tie against West Ham.

    Not the best start for the newly promoted side - so far they have picked up a total of zero points...

    "I have confidence the team will improve, if we keep working the way we are now. We are reducing the number of players we have, and we can keep looking for different options in the market."

    Rafa Benítez

    He also brings us some team news...

    "Florian Lejeune is not ready, DeAndre Yedlin is still not ready and Karl Darlow (keeper) has a knock and will not be on the bench."

    Jonjo Shelvey serves the final game of a three-match ban.

  5. Post update

    Next up is Rafa...

  6. Man City news conference

    Bournemouth v Man City (12:30 BST)

    Pep brings team news...

    "Benjamin Mendy is travelling with us. I don’t know if he will play. Kyle Walker cannot play. Ilkay Gundogan will play with the second team".

    Pep also brings thoughts on Alexis Sanchez and other so-called transfer targets...

    "Sanchez is an Arsenal player, like Mbappe is Monaco and Jonny Evans is West Brom. You have to ask Alexis. "

    So that settled that - sort of.

  7. Man City news conference

    Bournemouth v Man City (12:30 BST)

    Pep Guardiola

    Pep Guardiola: "We dropped two points but in general we made good things. I am happy with the performances so far this season.

    "Bournemouth are a team who want to play. The manager is so good in those terms. They start with two defeats but sometimes that can happen".

    So what of their chances in the Champions League... Just a reminder, they have Shakhtar Donetsk, Napoli and Feyenoord.

    "In UCL you expect the first and second pot to be strong but I think Napoli are one of the three best teams in Europe right now."

  8. Post update

    And now it's Pep's turn.

    What does Guardiola have to say before Manchester City's trip down the M6 to Bournemouth...

  9. No Leicester title repeat - Mourinho

    Man Utd v Leicester (Saturday: 17:30 BST)

    Manchester United

    Jose Mourinho believes Leicester City will not repeat their Premier League title triumph of 2015-16.

    The Foxes visit Manchester United on Saturday, and Red Devils boss Mourinho said: "Are they going to be champions again?

    "Honestly, I don't think so. The other teams are not all going to fail."

  10. Ibrahimovic is our 'extra man'

    Manchester United

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be Manchester United's 'extra man' after Christmas, says boss Jose Mourinho.

    Ibrahimovic re-joined the Red Devils on Thursday but is not ready to return to action after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury towards the end of last season.

    "He won't be ready for the group phase of the Champions League," said Mourinho. "No chance of that. Hopefully he can play in the knockout stage but for that we have to finish in top two.

    "I just think he will be extra man for us in the second part of the season."

    "From the beginning, Jordan Pickford has shown that he is really comfortable. He is young, with a lot of ambition.

    "Wayne Rooney's decision to retire is one I respect. He is important both on and off the pitch."

  14. "It's a strong group"

    Chelsea v Everton (Sun, 13:30 BST)

    Chelsea

    And what of Chelsea's opponents on Sunday...

    "Ronald Koeman has built a really strong team. This season they improved a lot and we must pay great attention on Sunday.

    It's important after a really good win over Tottenham to continue in this way."

    Conte also has a quick word on their Champions League group where they will face Atletico Madrid, Roma and Qarabag...

    "It's a tough group but when you play these types of competition you must be prepared to face strong teams. It's very difficult to say if it's a good group stage or a bad group stage. It's important to do our best."
