    Following Yerry Mina's £27.19m move from Barcelona, the defender has yet to make an appearance for the blues due to injury, but a debut could be a possibility this weekend as his side go to Stamford Bridge.

    Ahead of this, the Colombian spoke to the press.

    "I'm really excited about the chance of playing this weekend. I'm glad to be in this moment. I'm in great shape, 100% fit, and ready to help the team," he said.

    "I know I've joined a great Club. I'm relaxed about having to wait for the moment to play but I've been keen to get started. I'm just determined to enjoy myself and perform as well as I can.

    "I'd like to thank the supporters for how they've shown their appreciation for me already. I feel the same about them. It is natural. I am happy and I try to transmit that to people around me."

    Crystal Palace

    Back to Hodgson quickly and the former England manager believes Rooney, the country's record goalscorer, deserves the opportunity of such an honour.

    "You can be accused of giving out cheap caps in friendlies anyway.

    "But I don't see a problem with someone using a friendly match to actually say 'thank you' and to recognise the work of someone like Wayne Rooney, who was a fantastic international and servant of England as a player."

  6. Hughton on Glenn Murray and picking up points

    Brighton & Hove Albion

    Chris Hughton says that striker Glenn Murray hardly misses a training session and emphasises the importance of picking up points.

    "Glenn always trains really well - he rarely misses a session and has always been available. My feeling with him is that if he does need a rest it won't be down to his age, it might be other circumstances.

    "We've got a crucial period of games coming up - but the Premier League is such a tough league that it always applies.

    "We know we're more likely to pick points up off sides outside of the top six - but we have to capitalise on that ourselves."

  7. Brighton team news

    Brighton v Cardiff (Sat, 1230 GMT)

    Brighton & Hove Albion

    Brighton manager Chris Hughton provides us with injury updates to his squad for this weekend's clash against Cardiff.

    "Pascal Gross and Davy Propper will both miss out this weekend.

    "Alireza Jahanbakhsh also picked up a slight strain last weekend and he hasn't trained this week so will probably miss out.

    "David Button is also carrying a knock."

  8. Maguire and Maddison injury update

    Leicester v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Claude Puel has said that Harry Maguire and James Maddison are injured and will miss the game on Saturday, as well as England's games against USA and Croatia.

    "Harry is not fit for this game and Maddison also.

    "They will miss this game and England. Maguire is a little more serious than Maddison, I think, we will see if they can make it back after the international break."

  9. 'It is like a family' - Puel

    Leicester v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Claude Puel acknowledges that his players will have to cope with the emotion of Saturday's game and has praised his players maturity.

    "It is our first game at home and there is a lot of emotion around it, before, during and afterwards, we know this.

    "But the players have shown great maturity, it is like a family. It is important to honour our chairman and play a good game.

    "We will manage the moment step by step but I feel in my players focus and soul. They have learned a lot about themselves in all this and I am proud of them all."

  10. 'It is not easy to prepare for this game' - Puel

    Leicester v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Leicester manager Claude Puel said it's been an emotional week for everyone at the club, after his side visited Thailand to pay tribute to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

    "It was a long journey but it was very important for us to support Vichai's family and honour our chairman.

    "We tried to work a little of Wednesday and had a light training session today, the same tomorrow.

    "It is not easy to prepare for this game. The emotion, no consistency in training sessions.

    "But we will compensate with our spirit and attitude and the support from the fans, of course.

    "In the last game, we found the right balance between emotion and the balance in our game. We have to do the same again and give the right response to honour our chairman."

    Now it's back to domestic matters as we bring you more from the Premier League.

  13. Southgate on Jadon Sancho

  15. Get Involved

    England squad announcement

    Martin Higgins: Great to see Wilson finally getting a call-up! Whilst we are going on form rather than name, how about some play-time for Glenn Murray and Will Hughes?

    Paul Westerberg: So pleased for Michael Keane being recalled for England. He looked lost when he moved to Everton but has proved the doubters wrong.

  16. No injury news for Palace

    Crystal Palace v Tottenham (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    Crystal Palace

    Back to the Premier League and Palace manager Roy Hodgson has said that's "nothing special to report at the moment on the injuries. We haven't recovered any of the injured players, but haven't lost anyone either."

    That means strikers Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham are still out.

  17. 'We have tried to include players' - Southgate

    "I cannot speak totally accurate but there was a general feeling that the team from 1966 weren't recognised as they might have been for a certain period of time. We have tried to involve former England players as much as possible and I hope they appreciate that."

  18. 'Our preparation has got to be spot on' - Southgate

    "The most important game is Croatia. Our preparation has got to be spot on.

    "We have just got up to fifth in the world. We want to progress and improve as a team so it is important that our younger and older players are capable and our game with the United States is another opportunity to play well."

  19. Wilson, Keane and Dunk called up

    Just a reminder that here's the story on Gareth Southgate's England squad for the games against the United States and Croatia next week.

  20. 'We are a strange country' - Southgate

    "We are a strange country as in that we bemoan the fact we haven't achieved as much as we like. We have a player who should be held in the highest regard yet we spend a lot of time justifying that tribute. I am looking forward to seeing and working with him in the next few days."
