  1. Three things you may have missed today

    Right that's your lot for now. Thanks for joining us and for getting involved as we asked you to compare your club's transfer business to food.

    Here are three things that got you talking today:

    Arsene Wenger says there is nothing to hide over Alexis Sanchez reportedly missing a test

    Real Madrid turn their attentions to Eden Hazard

    And we had some truly exceptional food-based football suggestions.

  2. 'Never near' - Guardiola

    Cardiff v Man City (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Manchester City

    More from Pep Guardiola now, who was asked if he has nearly got the squad he would like at moneybags Manchester City.

    "Never near," he insists.

    "A player might be happy to be be on the bench this season and next season he wants to leave if he is not playing regularly. If you look at your squad and think you have done it for three seasons, it would be a big mistake."

  3. 'We need that confidence back'

    Southampton v Watford (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    BBC Solent have been speaking to Southampton's Oriol Romeu, who says the FA Cup is a welcome diversion from the rigours of the relegation zone.

    Saints, only two points off the bottom, take on another Premier League side, Watford, who came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Vicarage Road this month, but Romeu says: "It makes you play, not with less pressure, but not having to think about what's happening with other teams.

    "This is another chance to make ourselves better and to get another win, because we need that confidence back."

  8. Arsenal have nothing to hide - Wenger

    #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says the club have "nothing to hide" after former player Alexis Sanchez reportedly missed a drugs test on Monday.

    The Chilean, 29, allegedly missed the test on the same day his transfer to Manchester United was completed.

    "I think it is a special event for him to miss a drugs test because he was somewhere else," said Wenger.

    The Frenchman added the club had not been contacted by the Football Association or UK Anti-Doping.

  9. 'We haven't had a ball out at all'

    Cardiff v Man City (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Straight talking as always from Neil Warnock.

    Sounds like they've had some rain in Wales. "We haven't had a ball out at all," he laments. "We've just been throwing up a few pieces of paper for the players to chase!"

    There has been a deluge in the usually sunny south-east recently. And yet outside our window in the frequently sodden Salford there are beautiful blue skies. And that's the end of weather chat for now.

  11. Henderson is our captain - Klopp

    Liverpool v West Brom (Sat, 19:45 GMT)

    Liverpool

    Klopp has also been talking about Danny Ings and who wears the captain's armband.

    A few eyebrows were raised when Emre Can was named captain for the Swansea game as he is out of contract this summer.

    "Jordan Henderson is our captain, if he’s not on the pitch Milly (James Milner) is captain.

    "On the pitch you need to share responsibility. It was not my plan to give it (to many different players). This club, it’s maybe a bit different as Stevie (Gerrard) was captain for 25 years or so," said Klopp.

    On Danny Ings, Klopp added: "Doing really well and the fact we don’t give him a loan shows our plans with him. Physically (he's) completely there - I can’t remember (the) last session he wasn’t there.

    "Maybe if he could go somewhere where he could start (the) next 20 games would it be good for him? But we need to think about our needs."

  13. The real news at Man City

    Cardiff v Man City (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola was happier talking about Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva, Nicolas Otamendi and Fernandinho, who have all extended their contracts over the past month.

    "That is the real news," he said.

    However, even if Laporte arrives early next week as expected, Guardiola will not be resting on his laurels.

    He said: "You never (think you are near the end).

    "In one season a player might be OK being on the bench, the next one he wants to leave. Things can change very quickly."

  14. Pep's staying silent

    Cardiff v Man City (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola was asked repeatedly about Manchester City's transfer plans for the rest of the month and about the bid to sign Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao.

    He was having none of it.

    "No, I can't (say anything). He (Laporte) is a player for Bilbao. It's the same as other players in the clubs, I didn't speak about them. If it happens, it happens, if not then it doesn't."

    Philip Masterson: Hope to get a glimpse of Alexis Sanchez tonight in that beautiful red. Last time we played yeovil a new number 7 scored. History to repeat itself?

    I'm guessing United will have higher hopes for Sanchez....

  16. Mitrovic could leave - but not to a Premier League club

    Chelsea v Newcastle (Sunday, 13:30 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    Over to Rafa Benitez for Newcastle news now and the Spaniard confirms Aleksandar Mitrovic could be sold this month if he signs another striker.

    He makes a caveat, however, the 23-year-old Serb will not be sold to another Premier League club.

    He has not scored in his last five games so surely they could risk it?

  18. 'The players are the artists'

    Cardiff v Man City (Sunday, 16:00 GMT)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City travel to Cardiff on Sunday as the quest for the quadruple continues. Injury news from Pep Guardiola to begin with and he says his £50m full-back Kyle Walker suffered no repercussions from a bang to the head in the midweek League Cup win at Bristol City.

    Asked about his own future, the Spaniard says intriguingly: "The players are the artists. They are the most important."

  19. Klopp on transfer activity

    Liverpool V West Brom (Sat, 19:45 GMT)

    Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp has been asked if he's likely to make any more additions this month.

    “Is it likely - no," he said.

    I'm not sure how that will go down with Liverpool fans...
