  2. 'We do not have the space'

    Leicester v Tottenham (19:30 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham have been linked with a possible move for Aston Villa's Jack Grealish, but the Spurs manager says "we do not have the space".

    "We will see what happens in January. We have a full squad of 28 and I think it is impossible, so it doesn't make sense to talk about signing players," said Pochettino.

  3. 'It is a dream to play at Wembley'

    Leicester v Tottenham (Sat, 19:30 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham were due to move into their new stadium this season, but following a delay, they are still playing at Wembley.

    However, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino says it is a "dream" to play at the national stadium.

    "I played in 2000 with the national team at the old stadium and now every week, to have the opportunity to play at Wembley, is a gift," said Pochettino.

    "When I see the arch I say thank you at how lucky we are. It is the best place in the world to play football, and when our stadium is built, White Hart Lane and Wembley will be the two best places."

  4. 'We want to improve'

    Leicester v Tottenham Hotspur (Sat, 19:45 GMT)

    Leicester City

    More from Puel: “There is not a lot of difference between a lot of teams [in the table]. We need to continue in our way, to play and to give our best. We have a young, ambitious team that wants to improve.”

    “They [Tottenham] have a big squad and a lot of possibilities. They have fantastic players and playing every three days is not a problem for them.”

  7. Benitez coy on Almiron link

    Newcastle v Wolves (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    Finally for now, Benitez played down speculation that the club is closing in on a deal for Paraguay international midfielder Miguel Almiron.

    Atlanta United president Darren Eales has dismissed as "laughable" suggestions that the 24-year-old could join the Magpies either on loan or in a £15m permanent switch, but Benitez refused to be drawn.

    "I don't talk about players, but I've heard that someone has said we made an offer and after, we said 'No, we didn't make any offer'," he said.

    "We don't talk about players. If we make an offer, they will know, we will know and not necessarily the press will know. At the moment, there is no news and we carry on with the players that we have trying to do our best for the next game."

  8. 'Wolves are a good team'

    Newcastle v Wolves (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle face a Wolves side who earned a famous win over Chelsea in midweek but Benitez believes in the spirit his team has shown.

    "This group of players deserve credit because they are doing a fantastic job,” he adds.

    “Wolves are a very good team - they have had the same manager for a while and have been playing the same way.”

  9. Kenedy could feature

    Newcastle v Wolves (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    On to Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez whose side host Wolves on Sunday and he has given an injury update on winger Kenedy who missed the midweek draw against Everton through injury.

    “Kenedy is fine, he has been training," says Benitez. "Hopefully he can train tomorrow, and then he will be available," .

    “If Paul Dummett trains tomorrow without any problem, he is another option.”

    Pep Guardiola was asked about the prospect of Manchester City completing an unbeaten season.

    They go to Chelsea tomorrow having dropped just four points in their opening 15 games, but Guardiola is not looking beyond the Stamford Bridge trip.

    "I don't care," he said.

    Asked what the biggest danger to his team is, Guardiola said: "To think it is not necessary to improve. My team is very good but we can do better."

  11. 'It's not at the same intensity'

    Bournemouth v Liverpool (Sat, 12:30 GMT)

    Liverpool

    On Virgil van Dijk's recent performances, Klopp said: “It’s not at the same intensity but with Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren out, we don’t have to think about that."

  12. 'Another huge demanding test'

    Chelsea v Manchester City (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    Manchester City

    More from Pep Guardiola with his side facing a Chelsea side who surprisingly lost to Wolves on Saturday.

    "Tomorrow is another huge demanding test for us," he says.

    "How we play against one of the best teams on one of the biggest stages. How will they react after losing? I can imagine how intense, committed they will be."

    Pep Guardiola
  13. 'Lovren will not be available and Mane is a doubt'

    Bournemouth v Liverpool (Sat, 12:30 GMT)

    Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp: “Sadio Mane doesn’t sound like he will be ready tomorrow. Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson are OK.

    “Dejan Lovren will not be available. He got concussion after a knock last week - and will not be available. Nathaniel Clyne is also out but Dominic Solanke is close and I hope he’ll be in team training later on."

    Sadio Mane
  14. Duo to miss out for Manchester City

    Chelsea v Manchester City (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    Manchester City

    Some not entirely unexpected news from Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola who has also been facing the media this lunchtime.

    He confirms that both Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne will miss Saturday's trip to Chelsea.

  15. 'Sturridge is no cheat'

    Bournemouth v Liverpool (Sat, 12:30 GMT)

    Liverpool

    Following Wednesday's 3-1 win at Burnley, Sean Dyche reportedly called Reds' striker Daniel Sturridge a cheat for diving.

    Klopp said: “Sturridge is no cheat. I’m not sure if he (Dyche) spoke about the challenge of Phil Bardsley on Alberto Moreno?"

    “The game is really hard and sometimes a striker expects a tackle by jumping."

  16. 'Pressure on City not the first target'

    Bournemouth v Liverpool (Sat, 12:30 GMT)

    Liverpool

    Liverpool manager says putting pressure on Man City at the top of the table "is not the first target" and beating Bournemouth tomorrow afternoon will be tough enough.

    Three points on the south coast would see Liverpool move top of the table, and Klopp said: “First in the table is nice but probably only for a few hours."

  19. 'Gutted'

    As we reported earlier, Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding has been ruled out for up to nine months after he ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Wednesday.

    "Rob will undergo surgery in the coming days and rehabilitation is expected to take between six to nine months," said an Arsenal statement.

    The defender has since said: "Gutted to get injured during a strong period for the team!"

  20. City slickers

    Chelsea v Man City (Sat, 17:30GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola faces the media shortly to look ahead to tomorrow's trip to Chelsea.

    If Manchester City repeat their success in the corresponding fixture last season they will be 13 points clear of Maurizio Sarri's men, which would surely rule Chelsea out of the title race completely.

    Kevin de Bruyne scored the winner last season but there is no guarantee he will be fit this weekend.
