  2. Tottenham team news

    Real Madrid v Tottenham (19:45 BST)

    Tottenham defender Danny Rose could make his first appearance since January for his side's Champions League Group H game at European champions Real Madrid.

    Rose has been out with a knee injury but could make the substitutes bench at the Bernabeu, while midfielder Dele Alli, who has travelled, is suspended.

    Former Spurs forward Gareth Bale is out with a calf injury and will not face his old club. Keeper Keylor Navas is set to return after recovering from a thigh injury.

    Real are level with Spurs at the top of Group H with the same points and goal difference.

  3. Manchester City team news

    Manchester City v Napoli (19:45 BST)

    Napoli should rest players for the Champions League game against Manchester City because they face Inter Milan in Serie A on Saturday, says president Aurelio de Laurentiis.

    The Naples club have not won the league since 1990 but are two points clear of nearest rivals Inter at the top.

    City could have forward Sergio Aguero back in their side, three weeks after he broke a rib in a car crash. Captain Vincent Kompany remains doubtful with a calf injury.

    City are top of Group F after winning their opening two games - against Shakhtar Donetsk and Feyenoord - without conceding. Napoli are third in the group, level on three points with Shakhtar.

  4. Liverpool team news

    Maribor v Liverpool (19:45 BST)

    Loris Karius will start in goal when Liverpool play at Maribor tonight.

    The 24-year-old German replaces Simon Mignolet, who kept a clean sheet in Saturday's Premier League draw with Manchester United.

    But Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled out any further squad rotation for the Group E game.

    Liverpool are still without striker Sadio Mane, who has a hamstring problem, but have no new injuries.

  5. Post update

    Let's not forget, it's a big night of Champions League football with Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham in action. Here is some early team news...

  6. 'Above all he’s a nice man'

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    Ian Stringer

    BBC Radio Leicester Sport

    Craig Shakespeare knew the ruthless nature of Premier League management when he took the job but eight games will have been a surprise to him I’m sure. I chatted with him pre-season where he said he was well aware of the difficulties of having Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool in the first six league games.

    Having Danny Drinkwater sold on deadline day only to discover the paperwork for his replacement was 14 seconds late left his Foxes team without Adrian Silva - part of the Portuguese Euro Champions - meaning depleted numbers.

    His association with the club goes back to Nigel Pearson’s appointment in 2008, with a break which the pair managed Hill City, so it’s a longstanding romance with European victories along the way but it comes to an end against West Brom, his former club as a player.

    Fans reaction seems mixed. Many remembering that night against Sevilla when Shakespeare took charge and secured Leicester City a Champions League quarter-final place, some claiming that achievement and resulting appointment was a step too far for an inexperienced manager.

    I’ll miss him, above all he’s a nice man. They’re rare in football.

  7. Is the Vardy party over?

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    What now for the big player names at Leicester?

    "Heads will be turned," former Foxes striker James Scowcroft told BBC Radio 5 live.

    "Riyad Mahrez for example had a plane on standby on transfer deadline day. We will see these players move on and maybe it's time now for a few of them need to move on.

    "I thought it was a little bit soon to sack him. They had a tough start to the season - Arsenal and Man United away. That put Leicester and Craig under a lot of pressure.

    "They've got more than enough quality to get some results together."

  8. Who next for Leicester?

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    John Murray

    BBC football commentator for 5 live Sport

    I thought it was a really interesting appointment that Nigel Pearson - who has managed Leicester twice - took charge at Leuven in Belgium. The significance being that club is owned by the King Power group.

    That had an air of coming back into the fold. Whether that would open the way towards Nigel Pearson (pictured) returning, we'll have to see.

    At the same time, someone like Sam Allardyce is there. Whether this would be a job that would appeal to him, I'm not sure.

    While he is out of work and available, he'll always be linked.

    Daniel: There's no manager with a better pedigree and connection to Leicester City FC than Roberto Mancini.

    Philip Whitehead: Can I throw in a left-field suggestion and propose Graham Potter for the Leicester job? Done wonders at Ostersunds.

    Maddog: Leicester City Football Club: Mr Shakespeare, what goes around comes around, it's time for the big guy, ALLARDYCE.

  11. 'A constant refresh'

    John Murray

    BBC football commentator for 5 live Sport

    He made such a good start - winning his first five league matches - but the owners at Leicester are looking at the modern model which is a constant refresh.

    It may be that they settle for the man who can bring them the sort of success they want but they're not alone in taking this sort of approach.

  12. Great start, poor finish

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    What a start it was for Craig Shakespeare as manager as Leicester won their first five Premier League games under him - against Liverpool, Hull, West Ham, Stoke and Sunderland - and also a Champions League match against Sevilla.

  13. Shakespeare 'oversaw match earlier today'

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    Local newspaper Leicester Mercury is reporting that Shakespeare was in charge of a behind-closed-doors friendly earlier today, which involved a practice game for Adrien Silva against Nottingham Forest.

    Shakespeare signed Portugal international midfielder Silva on the final day of the August transfer window for £22m. However, the 28-year-old is not eligible to play for the club until January as his transfer was processed 14 seconds after the transfer window closed.

  14. 'Ruthless' at Leicester

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    John Murray

    BBC football commentator for 5 live Sport

    Shakespeare's appointment last season always had the air of temporary about it - and whether he was going to make the step from assistant to manager.

    It's clearly what he wanted to be.

    The King Power owners have showed themselves to be ruthless again. At the start of the season it was very difficult. They played Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool in the first six weeks of the season. But they were in all those games.

    OK, they are where they are but the group have decided they need to make the change now.

    It's ruthless, and I do feel for him a little.

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    Who next for Leicester after the sacking of Craig Shakespeare? Here are some of your suggestions.

    Rego: After Ranieri's reign I don't think Shakespeare was the correct replacement anyway. I'd grab Rafael Benitez off Newcastle.

    Joe Schmidt: Shakespeare was a good servant to the club and I'm sorry it's ended like this, but our owners are ambitious! Carlo Ancelotti next?

    Neil Rhodes: Very harsh, but the owners will want Chris Coleman before someone else snaps him up.

  16. Where's the boss?

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Leicester players were not informed by the club and found out about Shakespeare’s sacking when they read media reports online.

    Mark: I'm very surprised by the timing of Craig Shakespeare's sacking. The list of possible candidates is very poor, I'm tired of the likes of Alan Pardew being linked with our club.

    Leicesterboy1: Champions to basement in less than 2 years! Should never have sacked Ranieri. Bring in Ancelotti and let's get moving.

    Joseph: Not the first time a manager has been sacked at the expense of this overpaid and lazy Leicester team. Need to move on from the class of 15/16, otherwise this sacking streak will just continue.

  19. 'Outfoxed'

    Leicester City sack manager Craig Shakespeare

    Leicester's only Premier League win this season was their 2-0 home success over Brighton, back on 19 August.

    Since then they have lost against Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool and drew with Huddersfield, Bournemouth and West Brom.

    They have also won two EFL Cup ties in that period - against Championship Sheffield United and against Liverpool in the third round.

  20. Post update

    More from former Leicester striker James Scowcroft on BBC Radio 5 live.

    He was asked who will replace Shakespeare.

    "They will go totally different - maybe a big name," he said. "They went for a name in Claudio, a man who has managed at the highest level in Europe.

    "It's a club that needs to go forward not backwards now. They need to reinvent themselves now."
