    Simon Buckley: If the title was between Liverpool and United neutrals would be undecided, however City are insignificant to almost all football fans due to how they have got their success.

    Matthew Jones: Liverpool fans’ arrogance due to history (cough) and their strange anti-England sentiment have caused everyone to dislike them and want City to win league.

    Demi: As an Arsenal fan don't really care who wins just glad that our invincible record remains intact at least for another season.

    Newport County v Leicester City (Sun, 16:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Puel on Vicente Iborra: “I can say he moved to Spain just for his family but we know of some interest for him and perhaps he will move in January. We will see the situation in a few days.

    “I give him four days because he needs to see his family and after we will see if he come back or if he stays because perhaps he will stay.

    “It’s a possibility (he will leave). Vicente didn’t play with all the game-time he wanted and we will see.”

    Gumbo 74: Would like to see LFC win it, been close a few times and have also invested strongly in the ground & playing group. Klopp too - he appears a genuinely good bloke. Anyone but Spurs, they really won't shut up for 12 months!

    Vincent: Anyone but Liverpool as their success highlights others failures and they have very obnoxious fans

    Lee Brett: Man United fans want Spurs to win their next premier league fixture a week on sunday. How times have changed.

  15. 'The first priority is to keep the balance in the team'

    Newport County v Leicester City (Sun, 16:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Puel on the transfer window: “This period is a special period for the squad, for the team, because we know there a lot of rumours around the team and for the manager like me it’s important to have discussions with different players to know their wishes.

    "Some players will want some other game-time but we need to think about the possibility.

    “The first priority is to keep the balance in the team and to keep the team strong, with enough players to continue in this competition.

    The priority is the club but we have to listen to these players.

    “We have to listen and to understand some different possibilities because players want to play.”

  16. 'People like this cup because all is possible'

    Newport County v Leicester City (Sun, 16:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Puel on Newport County: "It's important to look at this team. Last season they played well and got a good result against Tottenham.

    On the FA Cup: "We know about the tradition of the cup, it is the same in France. People like this cup because all is possible."

  17. Puel gives updates on Andy King and Adrien Silva

    Newport County v Leicester City (Sun, 16:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    “We will see with them. There are clubs interested but we need to keep the balance. Perhaps there will be opportunities for them.”

    On Andy King: “Andy is a fantastic professional, a legend for Leicester City. We have to respect him.

    “He wants more game time, this is a normal thing. I hope we can give the opportunity to move and to enjoy his football.

    “He gives his best in the training session, he remains perfect and professional because he’s a man like that.

    "For Andy, it will be important to have this opportunity for game time because without the possibility to give the best on the pitch, and just on the training ground, he cannot be happy.”

  18. 'We need to find the right balance between quality and freshness'

    Newport County v Leicester City (Sun, 16:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Claude Puel has given an update on Wes Morgan and Jamie Vardy: “Wes came back to training session, good mach fit. He is ready for the game.

    “We will see on Vardy. It will be a good team in place with some rotation. Players have played a lot in this busy period, so we need to give some freshness.

    “We have a squad with players close [in ability] between themselves, we need to use all the possibilities of the squad to maintain the freshness with the possibility to compete all the time.

    “We need to find the right balance between quality and freshness.”

    Newcastle v Blackburn Rovers (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    Benitez on the FA Cup: "The main thing for us is to approach the next game trying to win - in this case, it's the FA Cup. I won the FA Cup [with Liverpool in 2006] so for me, it's a massive trophy, but I will not take any risks."
