  1. Post update

    Today's news conferences are all done and dusted so we're going to shut things down on here for now.

    There's plenty of live action ahead with the Balldon d'Or winners being announced and the FA Cup third-round draw so join us again on the BBC Sport website from around 7pm for all of that.

    Until then, cheerio-bye-tata!

  2. 'I am open to listen to projects'


    Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has issued the old "come and get me" plea.

    He has been linked with positions at Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

    Pochettino told Fox Sports Argentina: "There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on.

    "At my age I don't need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me."

  3. 'Harry, you are a kind hearted person'

    Another thing to give you that warm fuzzy feeling on a cold Monday - Harry Kane responding to a letter from schoolchildren asking him to join their team for a training session.

  4. Tetchy Pep

    Burnley v Man City (Tues, 20:15GMT)

    It was a rather tetchy Pep Guardiola who faced the media at the Etihad Campus this lunchtime.

    Guardiola was particularly frosty when I asked him why John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi have not played together in central defence since the defeat at Norwich in September.

    "Because I prefer Dinho (Fernandinho) there."

    My point was Fernandinho is a midfield player, whereas Otamendi and Stones are central defenders.

    "Have you seen him play," was Guardiola's response when I asked him why.

  5. Can Ljungberg improve Arsenal's fortunes?

    Martin Keown

    Former Arsenal defender


    I am sure Freddie Ljungberg will aspire to the same key values we had in our team when we played together, when the discipline and organisation we had when we lost the ball played a big part in our success.

    It is going to be hard for him to achieve those ideals with the squad he has got, and in what will probably be a limited timeframe, but he has got to try.

    If it is going to happen, it is not just down to him - there is going to have to be a shift in mentality from the Arsenal players.

    By that - and I am obviously speaking as an ex-defender here - I mean a realisation by the players of what is required when they are not in possession, and also a willingness to actually go and do it too.

  6. Aguero misses the Manchester derby

    Pep Guardiola has ruled striker Sergio Aguero out of the Manchester derby next weekend.

    The Manchester City manager previously said Aguero 'would need a miracle' to recover from a thigh injury on time to face United at the Etihad Stadium on 7 December.

    At his press conference on Tuesday, Guardiola confirmed the Argentina forward would not make it.

    "He won't be ready for the derby," said Guardiola. "After that we will see."

  7. 'Why would I want to leave Leicester?'


    Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: "I have a contract here until 2022. Thus far, I know managers are losing their jobs, the club have not indicated to me that they are going to sack me. I am very happy so would have no need to look elsewhere.

    "Why would I want to leave Leicester City at this time? I am working with a group of players who have so much potential. I gave an honest answer about how all managers have some sort of clause in their contracts and suddenly that seems to have thrown a door wide open.

    "For me I repeat, I am happy here. Very happy here. I feel I want to continue with that. Take from that what you want.”

  8. Rodgers pressed on Arsenal link

    Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has just been speaking to the media, and has once again been asked about speculation linking him with Arsenal...

  9. 'The players have to believe'

    More from Pep Guardiola about facing Burnley tomorrow: The players have to believe. They have to believe we will win tomorrow.

    "They can’t think too much about the teams in front. We have to think about what to do to win the games. We have to try to be more solid with the chances we have and the chances we concede."

  10. 'Leicester in title race'

    More from Pep Guardiola: "Leicester is there (title race) because they are doing incredibly well since last season.

    " When Brendan took over he changed the way they play, we knew that when we played them in the last game. They are doing fantastically well."

  11. 'We have to adapt against Burnley'

    Pep Guardiola: "It’s difficult for all the teams (who visit Burnley). What they do, they do perfectly.

    They are so good with the second balls and the set pieces. We have to adapt to try and play our way."

  12. Guardiola news conference up next

    On with the next news conference of the day and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has just sat down to face the media.

  13. 'We're blessed in the goalkeeper department'

    More from Roy Hodgson: "We've been very lucky with free transfers and loans. Guaita is up there as one of the best.

    "He's proved to be unbelievably reliable and we're lucky to have him. We're blessed in the goalkeeper department."

  14. Howe has done exceptional job - Hodgson

    Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson on Eddie Howe and whether he deserves the chance at a top six club: "Absolutely. I think his record is really very good. What he has done at Bournemouth is quite exceptional.

    "They are very organised and all the things you want to see in your team he has produced that. I would be very surprised if his name didn't come up when linked with other positions."

  15. Sunny Pep?

    Burnley v Man City (Tues, 20:15GMT)

    I wonder if Pep Guardiola's mood matches the weather in Manchester today - sunny - or the temperature - pretty chilly.

    Manchester City's 2-2 draw at Newcastle on Saturday means they are now 11 points behind league leaders Liverpool after 14 games.

    City have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven matches.

    Evidently the problem needs addressing quickly. Burnley away on a Tuesday night is not the ideal place to start.

  16. McNeil 'deserves' transfer speculation


    Burnley boss Sean Dyche believes 20-year-old Dwight McNeil has earned the chance to be linked with clubs like Manchester United and also believes an England call up cannot be far away.

    "When I see some of the young players in and around it the he can’t be far away (from England call up) in my opinion but I would say that, I see him every day," says Dyche.

    "He deserves it (transfer speculation). He’s improving all the time. His mentality is good. The main thing for me is he’s enjoying himself."

  17. Get involved #bbcfootball

    Dean McNamara: Its very worrying that OGS says that he is not concerned about the league position. He should be. I am dismayed about the standard of football we are playing, which is down to coaching. As much as I love OGS, I am really starting to doubt his coaching ability.
