    Dele Alli
    Image caption: Don't get upset, Alli. I'll be back soon!

    I think we all deserve a well-earned break, don't we?

    You're fully up-to-date with the Premier League pressers, and we'll have more to bring you tomorrow.

    But, for the time being, I'll leave you to enjoy the rest of your afternoon.

    Thanks again for joining me and I'll see you soon!

  2. 'I think their players are really dangerous' - Pellegrino

    Crystal Palace v Southampton, Sat 12:30 BST

    Southampton

    Pellegrino on Crystal Palace: "We knew how Roy Hodgson was playing in the past, but everything changes when you have a new group of players. 90% of our job is to think about our style and our model.

    "We are thinking more about the individual qualities of our players. I think their group of players is really dangerous, but every single game in the Premier League is important and has important players. I see this game as an opportunity to try and get better from the last performance."

  3. 'I see the next game as opportunity to keep improving' - Pellegrino

    Crystal Palace v Southampton, Sat 12:30 BST

    Southampton

    Pellegrino on the future of Southampton: "I think that the number of goals is there and that is a fact. We create more chances and we deserved to score more goals in the past three games. Football sometimes is efficiency, I see the next game as opportunity to keep improving and to create more chances and convert."

  4. Van Dijk could feature on Saturday for Saints

    Crystal Palace v Southampton, Sat 12:30 BST

    Southampton

    Pellegrino on Virgil van Dijk: "Virgil was training well. Tomorrow we will decide. Hopefully he will be getting better every single week, but I am happy with that because, it's not just about Virgil; everybody is ready to be a part of the team.

    "For me, the captain is something that the team may decide and you have to deserve instead of something the manager can give.

    "Now, when he is not playing, you cannot put the captain as someone who is not playing but obviously Virgil was one of the leaders of the squad."

  5. 'You have to give a minimum and sometimes we were below that' - Pellegrino

    Crystal Palace v Southampton, Sat 12:30 BST

    Southampton

    Pellegrino on Saturday's home loss to Watford: "The conclusion from the Watford game is to compete at this level, you have to give a minimum and the baseline is higher and sometimes we were below that. Sometimes, the opponent is better than you like the other day when we conceded two soft goals, but we have to improve for the future.

    "We had to take responsibility because we are professional, but at the same time, football at the end is a game. Sometimes we talk about money and we think we are a company, but when the ball is on the ground, overall it's a game. It's part of our job.

    "Football today is about 22 players. It's not just about 11. When we analyse games, it's about challenging all the time and obviously in some respects of the game, they were better than us."

  6. BreakingIsco agrees new contract with Real Madrid

  7. 'You cannot analyse them after one month' - Pellegrino

    Crystal Palace v Southampton, Sat 12:30 BST

    Southampton

    Pellegrino on De Boer: "Our job now is not an easy job. How can we validate the work of one colleague in this moment after four games? But we have to accept that. Obviously, we have to keep going.

    "The result is everything in our life but I will repeat that Crystal Palace have a good group of players, but to draw a conclusion, you cannot analyse them after one month. It's really difficult."

    "I trust that we have been working really well this week. It will be tough for them and for us."

    "Now we have to use this momentum from Monday. The confidence is back - let's use it."

    Liverpool v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Burnley

    Sean Dyche confirms that goalkeeper Tom Heaton had an operation on his shoulder on Wednesday.

    "Tom’s surgery went very well. Tom was good afterwards. I’ll speak to him this afternoon," said Dyche.

    "We're happy the surgery went well but we won't rush Tom back. He has to be 100% right, but this is just a blip and he'll be fine.

    "As long as the surgery heals properly he’ll be on top of rehab because he’s ultra professional.

    "They’d be a lesser period out for an outfield player but a goalkeeper is constantly landing on his shoulder.

    "Tom understands the role and that it can happen. He’s had a fantastic run. It won’t be weeks, it will be a longer period."

    He confirmed they are putting no time frame on the recovery as of yet.
