  2. 'There is always room to improve'

    Wolves v Southampton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo speaks to the press ahead of their game against Southampton.

    On beating Manchester City 2-0 before the international break: “It was one of the good ones, of course, but there is always room to improve.

    "Of course, it gives you confidence but at the same time we have a responsibility to go again and do as well as possible."

    On Adama Traore: "He is a hard working boy, he always wants to improve himself. With all the players, the moment they come to us, we look at how we can make them better.

    "He can be better than he is now, there is no way to define how far he can go. We know he is a good player, that’s why we bought him."

  3. 'Southampton will be a tough challenge'

    Wolves v Southampton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    On Southampton: "We always try to build on our performances. Southampton is a totally different game. We have to find new solutions for the task we have.

    "All of the games are tough. Southampton is a very good team with a very good manager.

    "We’ve seen that, we’ve analysed them and tomorrow will be a tough challenge.”

  4. Post update

    And last but not least, here's what Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has to say.

  5. 'West Ham is a game for us to express ourselves on the pitch'

    Everton v West Ham (Sat, 12:30 BST)


    On West Ham: "Their away form is really good, we know what we expect.

    "It's up to us to perform better than the last games to achieve a good result.

    "It will be a game for us to express ourselves on the pitch."

    On Theo Walcott:"Last week we had a friendly game at Finch Farm. He played 90 minutes. He’s in a good condition to play tomorrow."

  6. 'I am the first one to take responsibility'

    Everton v West Ham (Sat, 12:30 BST)


    On squad morale: “Before the first international break, we were in sixth and in a good moment.

    “Now the moment is not so good and we need to take the responsibility. I am the first one to take responsibility but it is good to see the players take it as well."

  7. Why Reds will go to Old Trafford and win - Danny Murphy

    Man Utd v Liverpool (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Match of the Day 2

    When they go to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday, Liverpool will play the same way that they always play, because they don't change that for anybody.

    That means their standard 4-3-3 formation, and playing on the front foot against Manchester United - trying to win the game, like they do every week.

    Manchester United are not playing with any confidence at the moment, and do not have great firepower either, so from Liverpool's perspective this is a real opportunity.

    Whoever is fit for United, I think their mindset is a little bit fearful at the moment, and Liverpool will know that they might be edgy.

    So they can go after United, to probe them and test them, and try to win the ball high up the pitch.

    If Liverpool's intensity is as high as it usually is when they do that, then they are going to cause United a lot of problems.

    Full analysis piece here.

  8. 'England players stepped up'

    Chelsea v Newcastle (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard has also been asked about the racist abuse suffered by England players during the win over Bulgaria last Monday.

    The former England midfielder said: "I travelled with England in Europe and felt what we all felt and maybe didn’t speak about it enough, and one of the positives from Monday was the way the governing body and the players stepped up.

    "The collective way England dealt with it was good to see and it's not the end of the story."

  9. 'I think a big progression has been made'

    Chelsea v Newcastle (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard on experiencing racism in 2011 in Bulgaria:

    I kind of remember the game [in 2011], I think I was on the bench. I felt what we all felt at the time and maybe we did not speak up enough.

    "I think the big progression of Monday night is that the governing body have to take a big step.The way the England players and staff dealt with it was really positive. I have spoken to the players, there is not much to stay. It was nothing too dramatic. I am there to support them that’s all it is."

  10. Kante late return 'no laughing matter'

    Chelsea v Newcastle (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard says that N'Golo Kante is not fit for the Newcastle game with a groin problem, and is frustrated by the fact that the France midfielder was not fit to play in France's first game during the international break but did not return until after the second one.

    "After the first game when he pulled out, he had fitness test, and sat on the bench," he said. "That's not a laughing matter, it could have been handled better."

    Team news: Mateo Kovacic is back in training but Antonio Rudiger - who is "training outside which is a positive" - and Andreas Christensen are still out.

  11. 'We have a bit of a cushion'

    Crystal Palace v Manchester City (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has been chatting to the press ahead of the visit of the Premier League's defending champions.

    On Manchester City:

    "I don’t think Pep needs to worry about any team he faces but it will be nice if he shows us respect. We know we are going to be stretched, we know it is going to be a challenge but we are very up for that challenge."

    On a tough games ahead:

    "You can only do what you can do with the games that have been put in front of you. We face a tough period of games.

    "We are going to be hard stretched going forwards so it is going to be hard to keep that point accumulation up. We have a little bit of a cushion.

    "You are going to get periods like this during the season. You always get spells, it is up to us to produce the level of football we think we can produce and keep picking up points."

  12. 'It's difficult to create chances against Bournemouth'

    Bournemouth v Norwich (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Norwich City

    Finally from Daniel Farke, he looks ahead to the trip to Bournemouth.

    On Bournemouth: "Eddie has made Bournemouth a permanent member of the Premier League. They stand for a special philosophy and style of play, so they can be a role model for us, improving from year to year, even though the first and second are unbelievably difficult. They were always calm and focused on what they were doing.

    "I like that Bournemouth have a compact setup and good team spirit. They are also brave in their pressing and with the ball. Wherever they play, they want to go with their style. I like that a lot.

    "It's quite difficult to create chances against them so we have to be patient. In the cup game last season, we had to be patient. You have to wait for the gap to find a precise pass."

  13. 'We are much happier'

    Bournemouth v Norwich (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Norwich City

    On the mood in training: "We're much more happy than we were in the weeks before. It's always important to be self-critical. I knew before that being solid in defending is a big topic.

    "That was my first task when I came here. It became a strength for us. We added more goals and ended last season with the fifth best defence while scoring 100 goals.

    "It was important to analyse all of the games and find the details we have to improve on to get more clean sheets. I hope we pressed the right buttons, but we have to work on it daily because it's a process."

    Daniel Farke
  14. 'It’s a must-win game'

    Everton v West Ham (Sat, 12:30 BST)


    Silva is asked whether Saturday's early kick-off against West Ham is a must-win fixture.

    “We believe it will be [a turning point]. We have to really go for this match. It’s a must-win game.”

    On pressure: "I speak with the owner many times, not just in the last week. It's normal we speak during the week.

    “We have to put pressure behind us every day, for me it's never a problem. Pressure means we're a club that wants to win."

    Marco Silva
  15. 'England showed maturity and it was a pleasure to see'

    Everton v West Ham (Sat, 12:30 BST)


    On racism in football: "First I have to tell you it's great to see the maturity they [England] showed.

    “They went to play for the national team and they did in the right way, even if the environment was tough for them.

    “It was a pleasure to see."

    Harry Kane
  16. Toffees team news

    Everton v West Ham (Sat, 12:30 BST)


    Marco Silva has arrived, and he starts his news conference with some Toffees team news.

    He says Fabian Delph remains a "doubt" for the game.

    "Let's see how he reacts. He is getting better. We will make a decision tomorrow."

    Cenk Tosun also out due to a groin injury

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola comes up against the Premier League's oldest manager in Roy Hodgson on Saturday evening.

    Hodgson celebrated his 72nd birthday in August and Guardiola thinks it is 'amazing' the former England boss has the enthusiasm for the job still.

    But, does the Manchester City boss think he will still be in the dug-out at that age?
