  3. Pellegrino on injuries and Brighton

    Brighton v Southampton (Sun, 13:30 GMT)

    Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino on facing Brighton: "It will be a tough game as they have been working with the same ideas for a long period of time and with their manager.

    The Saints manager confirmed that summer signing Mario Lemina has been ruled out of the match following an ankle injury sustained in training.

    Other than that, he has a clean bill of health for Sunday.

  4. Beard and team news

    Burnley v Newcastle (Monday, 20:00 BST)

    “We still have Paul Dummett out and all the other players are available. Dwight Gale and Massadio Haidaraare fine," said Rafa Benitez of his Newcastle squad.

    Then the most important question of all. What does he make of Sean Dyche's beard?

    "You’re killing me with these questions. His is better… he can win that, we can win the game.”

  5. Benitez aims for January assessment

    Burnley v Newcastle (Monday, 20:00 BST)

    Rafa Benitez has given his views on all things Newcastle, as they prepare to face Burnley on Monday.

    "We started with an exercise on team spirit today. It was quite funny - the players enjoyed it," said the Spaniard.

    "We have had some games where maybe we deserved more. It could be even better, but we have to wait until January to see our potential.

    “By January, we will have played all the top sides. We have to wait a bit before we’re too happy.”

  6. Mourinho on Jones and Shaw

    Manchester United v Tottenham (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    BBC Radio Manchester

    Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho didn't even wait for the first question today, instead pre-empting it and saying he wouldn't speak about Harry Kane's absence.

    The United boss did say Luke Shaw does still have a future at United under him, despite the full-back playing only 48 minutes in the Carabao Cup for the Reds so far this season - although he admits it's difficult to see how at the moment he can give him the game time he needs.

    Mourinho was relaxed about Shaw's comments that he would like to play under Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino again one day, having worked with him at Southampton. Mourinho said the player had simply been honest about his feelings and he would have been disappointed if Shaw hadn't praised his old boss.

    Mourinho also says Phil Jones is ready to return in defence against Spurs tomorrow having hobbled off against Huddersfield a week ago, and hopes Eric Bailly may be able to play alongside him after missing the last four matches.

  7. England or Spain for Pep?

    West Brom v Manchester City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    BBC Radio Manchester

    Pep Guardiola once again urged caution when asked about his side’s incredible start to the the season, he reminded journalists that the Blues were in a similar position at a similar stage of last season and no one should get carried away.

    The City boss was, however, full of praise for England’s U17’s, three of which are City players, for reaching the World Cup Final. Guardiola even promised to try and watch the game - whether he’ll be shouting for England or Spain, however, is anyone’s guess.

  8. Kompany latest

    West Brom v Manchester City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Injury news from Pep Guardiola regarding Man City's captain.

    "Vincent Kompany just travelled so we'll see how his injury is. In the next ten days, he will be coming back. It's a muscular injury."

  9. Mourinho comments on Carabao Cup draw

    Manchester United v Tottenham (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Jose Mourinho is asked about the rather eventful Carabao Cup draw.

    We're expecting him to discuss if he is happy about meeting Bristol City but instead Mourinho reveals how he felt about the technical glitches.

    "I’m not happy – first of all because I didn’t watch the draw and what I watched was not a live draw, it was some images of a draw, but no I didn’t like it, I like to see it, I like to feel it, I didn’t like not at all."

    Mate, I had to do a live text on it for two hours. How do you think I feel?

  10. Don't mention Kane...

    Manchester United v Tottenham (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Jose Mourinho, the wily old fox, has pre-empted being asked about Harry Kane's injury.

    Speaking at his news conference, the Manchester United manager said: "Because I know the question I don’t need the question, I'll answer.

    "I don’t speak about injured players so don’t ask me about Harry Kane, because to speak about Harry Kane I have to speak about Ibrahimovic, about Pogba, about Rojo, about Carrick so I don’t speak. Next question."

  11. 'Calm and focused' at City

    West Brom v Manchester City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Pep Guardiola has spoken about his side being top of the table.

    "We started the same way this year to last season," said the Manchester City boss.

    "Last Tuesday [against Wolves in Carabao Cup] we realised how difficult it is to win. You have to be calm and you have to focus on what you have to do."

    When asked about the possibility of going unbeaten all season, he responds: "I answered that in the last press conference. Forget about it."

    Oh. Ok.

  12. Puel on... history

    Leicester v Everton (16:00 BST)

    Leicester City

    We're taking a break from the football chat at Leicester, and we've moved onto the history of the town.

    Puel, who was born in Castres, is being grilled on whether he likes rugby - it's important for the people of Leicester.

    "Of course I like rugby, my father played it. But for me no, it's football," he says. Sign him up as a Tigers fan then.

    Next there's talk of the dead king in the car park.

    Here's the link in case you're confused.

    "I take all of the specialty of the city, it's important to have a good feeling with the fans, the owners and the whole club," Puel says.

    "When I arrive I come to the club in my colours, I take the badge and I have to live the club. It's mportant to defend the colours of the club."

    He's taken this King thing seriously. He's going to battle for the Foxes...

  13. Injury news

    Leicester v Everton (16:00 BST)

    Leicester City

    Puel has only been at the Kingpower Stadium for around 48 hours, but here's his update on the latest injuries.

    Robert Huth: "I think he is perhaps available in a month, maybe a little more. He is evolving and working hard but we must be careful with it."

    Matty James: "I don't know exactly how long he has been without playing football but his evolution is good."

  14. 'I like a smile around the place'

    Leicester v Everton (16:00 BST)


    David Unsworth is asked if there are smiles around the dressing room, perhaps suggesting there weren't any under former boss Ronald Koeman.

    "I can only comment on what I do. It would be unfair to comment on people who have gone before me," said a diplomatic Unsworth.

    "I like a smile around the place and an atmosphere where players feel free to express themselves within a team structure and with 100% effort.

    "I've always done that and it'll be no different in Everton's first team."

  15. 'We need wins quickly'

    Leicester v Everton (16:00 BST)


    David Unsworth has been discussing the mangerial situation at Everton.

    The caretaker boss said: "It's no different at all. I've spoke to Farhad Moshiri last night and had a good conversation but it's not changed. I'm fully focused on Sunday.

    "I'm clear what my role is day to day until somebody tells me otherwise. We will just keep doing what we do best

    "It's always about getting results. We expect results. I've said that time and time again - this club, our fans, expect a certain level of performance. We got that the other night but we need wins now quickly - not for me but for the club."

  16. Conte's rant (continued)

    Bournemouth v Chelsea (17:30 BST)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    We didn't see that coming.

    Normally, Antonio Conte is very calm. That was the most animated I have seen him in a press conference since he arrived in England.

    Adding to what he had already said about rumours surrounding his future, Conte said: "If you want to hit me, hit me. I stop. This is incorrect and I hate these type of situations

    "If someone is happy to write this and make the newspaper more interesting continue to do this but don't put other people in it, because this is incorrect."

  17. Puel on ambitions

    Leicester v Everton (16:00 BST)

    Leicester City

    The softly-spoke Puel is facing questions on his hopes for Leicester in the future.

    "The ambition for the moment is to keep the good spirit in the team and to keep the team dynamic. After, with confidence, we can work on the details in the training sessions. We want to get a good result against Everton.

    "I can't say what position we will finish in as a team but it's about trying to perform on the pitch and to get in the top half of the table. It is not a dream, it is a reality. After in January or February we can see if we can do other things.

    He also confirmed that club captain Wes Morgan "is not a problem for me of course, he can keep the captaincy".

  18. Wanyama update

    Manchester United v Tottenham (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Other than Harry Kane, Spurs have also confirmed that Victor Wanyama is still receiving treatment and continuing to go through rehabilitation.

    The midfielder is due to see a specialist about the knee injury which has kept him sidelined since August.

    Both these two scored in Spurs' win over Man Utd last time out.

  19. No Kane, no party?

    Manchester United v Tottenham (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Bill Rice

    BBC Radio Manchester

    Manchester United's defence of the Carabao Cup continues after their win at Swansea this week, while Tottenham's wait for silverware goes on after defeat by West Ham.

    United boss Jose Mourinho says he gets more criticism than other managers because he is expected to win trophies, but how confident will he be ahead of facing Spurs without their talismanic striker Harry Kane, who has been ruled out through injury?

  20. Praise for Liverpool youngsters

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    There was a lot of love for Ben Woodburn and England U17 starlet Rhian Brewster as well from Klopp.

    “I don’t like to make things like this too big," said Klopp. "We had Rhian around last season before he got an injury.

    "Rhian is very similar as a person to Ben Woodburn. He never thinks about what team he’s playing for. These boys are the future and we need to build the present."

    Rhian Brewster
