  1. Recap

    So, as I wind down the updates for the day, here's the main talking points from this morning:

    • Manchester United could miss out on finishing in the top four
    • Manchester City scored the "perfect" goal

    And with that, I bid you adieu!

  2. Taking a break

    The Premier League takes another break this week as players scoot off to join their international sides.

    In the England corner,Wayne Rooney will be back at Wembley and Callum Wilson has got his first call-up for England.

    Meanwhile Danny Welbeck is out of the England side with an ankle break, and the injury could force the Arsenal striker out of action for the rest of the season.

    Wayne Rooney has confirmed he is joining up with the England squad later today.

    The former Three Lions captain is returning to the England fold for a one-off appearance to raise money for the Wayne Rooney Foundation.

  4. Post update

    My colleague Matt is currently working on a Manchester United stats piece.

    It's really not comfortable reading if you're Jose Mourinho doing a bit of "let's see how we're getting on" research over a morning smoothie in his Lowry Hotel suite...

    Jerry Omada: Mourinho needs to go. Look at Borussia Dortmund, that's an exciting project. Jose just wants tonnes of cash to buy players in their peak, win trophies and move on. The club is not like that. He's outdated. No identity, only excuses,moaning and complaining.

    SMS Message: City were the better team for 90 minutes. These 15/20-minute cameos won't win us anything. We are now a club with no direction and a Chief executive who wants to go one way and a manager who wants to go another. from Drew, Chester

  6. 'Fulham manager deserves more time' - Shearer

    Liverpool 2-0 Fulham

    Fulham

    Alan Shearer has focused his column this week on Fulham's manager Slavisa Jokanovic.

    The former Newcastle striker has backed the Serbian to come good at Craven Cottage.

    "Although Fulham look like a very poor team at the moment, there are six others of a similarly low standard at the bottom of the table - so you cannot write any of them off," Shearer said.

    Criv: Reactions are so dramatic!United beat Juve & their season turned a corner. Now City beat them &they’ll finish mid-table?! City are the best in England and most teams will be outplayed by them. Utd could easily come good again for top four.

    Adam Oldroyd: How can United possibly hope to compete with City, when the manager chooses a midfield like a rugby union back row , to compete with City's creative and quick-witted players

    If ever there was proof that football is a game of differing opinions..

  9. Houghton reaches 100 caps

    England

    It may not have been the result Steph Houghton wanted to celebrate her 100th cap, but the England captain was able to mark the occasion with her family on the pitch before the game.

    She was joined by her parents, brother, grandmother and her husband Stephen Darby, who was diagnosed with MND earlier this year.

    Houghton's international manager Phil Neville believes the defender can play "70" more times for her country.

  11. 'We could have been more aggressive' - Lindelof

    Man City 3-1 Man Utd

    Manchester United

    Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has admitted his team "missed opportunites".

    Lindelof told MUTV: “After we scored after our first goal we could have been a bit more aggressive and tried a little bit more.

    “After that goal they were quite nervous and it felt like we could have scored another, but they scored a third goal instead. We are very, very disappointed because we felt that we could have scored a second goal and got a better result.

    “We had quite a lot of possession, but we didn’t really come in behind their defensive line into their last third of the pitch. We tried and it felt like we could’ve hurt them more.”

    Jack Coleman: Man Utd don’t know how to react after a defeat. Keep reverting to the same excuses. Entitlement does not earn you top four.

    They are the only team not progressing in the team half. The Premier League is so competitive, they could soon be in the shadow of 3 or 4 teams, not just Man City

    Michael Scarn: If I recall correctly, people certainly didn't take kindly to Ronaldo doing stepovers when he played against them. So I think it's fine for Man Utd fans to be a little irritated by needless showboating too

  13. 'We scored a perfectly good goal'

    Southampton 1-1 Watford

    Not sure what Chris Waddle is referring to?

    Here's another reminder of Charlie Austin's reaction following what looked like a perfectly legitimate goal being ruled offside. It robbed Southampton of what looked likely to be a much-needed win as it would have put Saints 2-0-up.

  14. LISTEN: 'Officiating is getting worse' - Waddle

    "It's just getting worse and it's been a shamble for years!"

    Another day, another host of controversial refereeing decisions.

    Chris Waddle criticises the state of officiating in the UK.

  15. Pen or no pen?

    Shifting away from the Premier League for a cheeky little second, let's take a look at this tackle.

    It's in the FA Cup tie between Chorley and Doncaster.

    Chorley defender Matt Challoner deserved a red card for his "dangerous" challenge on Doncaster's Herbie Kane, according to Kevin Kilbane and Trevor Sinclair.

    It's sparked quite the debate.

    Thoughts?
