  1. Post update

    We're going to pause here for a little while.

    We'll be back around 13:30 GMT with updates from Frank Lampard's news conference for Chelsea's Champions League group stage game with Lille.

    Until then, here are few things for you to read...

  2. Arsenal and West Ham meet in need of win

    And there's still one game to come in the Premier League this weekend.

    Arsenal travel to West Ham tonight with both sides in need of a win.

    Freddie Ljungberg is still the Gunners interim manager with no replacement seeming to be in sight and the club have failed to win any of their past nine games, their worst run since early 1977.

    West Ham are 16th, just a point above the relegation zone.

    Kick-off is at 20:00 GMT.

  3. Guardiola's 'we can't compete' comments


    Dåñdåmåñ VI: It can’t be the lack of new talent at City, it can’t be injuries as they have a massive squad full of multi million pound internationals so maybe PG’s tactics are getting a little stagnant and Klopp is just a better manager in the making...

    Editor-in-chief: Typical cheque book manager mentality, when things don’t go right for you, the ‘norm’ is to insinuate that you need better quality players & that even more money should be afforded to you. Pathetic by the Pep’s & Jose’s of the football world! Fudge

  4. 'The swear kitty will be into the 100s'

    Video caption: Norwich 1-2 Sheffield United: Chris Wilder pleased with The Blades' response

    Blades boss Chris Wilder was not happy with his team after their first half performance against Norwich on Sunday. They responded with goals from Enda Stevens and George Baldock after the break.

    "If there's a swear kitty I think it's into the 100s quite easily," Wilder said.

    I know my players. They listened.

    "We were too safe in the first half and allowed Norwich to dictate. We were more like Sheffield United in the second half."

  5. Post update

    Will Liverpool's trip to the Club World Cup have an impact? They will not play in the Premier League on the weekend before Christmas and will instead have two matches in Qatar.

  6. Can Leicester really catch Liverpool?


    Prof. Bananas: It’s all about momentum. Liverpool seems unstoppable, but all it takes is a pivotal injury or a series of unpredicted results to shorten the distance. Mind you that Liverpool has more matches scheduled than Leicester, which is also a problem later on.

  7. Sheffield United come from behind to beat Norwich

    Sheffield United also continue to tick along very nicely after their fifth win of the season on Sunday.

    They came from 1-0 down to beat Norwich 2-1.

    Chris Wilder's Blades are eighth, three points ahead of Arsenal and a point behind Tottenham.

    Norwich, however, are now four points adrift of safety.

    Sheffield United celebrate
  8. Can Leicester really catch Liverpool?

    Text 81111

    SMS Message: Leicester will drop more points along the way as will Liverpool, you just feel Leicester will drop more. They've still got to play Man City twice, where as Liverpool have now faced all of the "big 6" and their Merseyside rivals dropping only two points in the process (Man Utd. Leicester lost against Man Utd, drew with Chelsea and lost to Liverpool. They'll need to take 3 points away from the "big 6" teams to stand a chance. from Stu in Bingley

  9. Wolves continue to impress

    Another team in impressive form is Wolves.

    They drew against Brighton on Sunday and are now unbeaten in 11 Premier Leagues.

    Nuno Espirito Santo's side have qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League too.

    Their game against Besiktas this week will be their 30th of the season already.

  10. Bruce will 'kick himself' if Saint-Maximin is injury serious

    Newcastle have concerns over the fitness of forward Allan Saint-Maximin following the game.

    He left the ground on crutches after seeming to pick up a hamstring issue in stoppage time.

    Bruce said he would "kick himself" if the injury was serious.

    The Newcastle manager said it is "the downside of playing somebody tired".

  11. Newcastle beat Southampton to go 10th

    Elsewhere in the Premier League on Sunday, Newcastle's good run under Steve Bruce continued as they came from behind to beat Southampton at St James' Park.

    Federico Fernandez scored a late winner for the Magpies who are now up into the top half of the table.

    They have won four of their past six games.

    Does Bruce deserve more credit?

    Newcastle celebrate
  12. Can Leicester really catch Liverpool?


    Abid: We have an excellent team who are playing well together. This isn't a team that relies heavily on counter attacking - we are keeping possession well. I don't think you can completely rule us out but the title is Liverpool's to lose now.

  13. Should Vardy come out of international retirement?

    Jamie Vardy

    So should Jamie Vardy consider coming out of England retirement?

    You'd think Gareth Southgate would want to be able to call on the Premier League's top scorer next summer in the Euros but Vardy effectively retired from international football in August 2018 after the World Cup.

    "If you are talking about being deserving, he would be in it a long time ago," his club manager Brendan Rodgers said.

    "It's his choice. I think he is enjoying his work at Leicester, he is enjoying his international break where he is able to rest. He is one who also knows that probably Harry Kane will play. He is the captain, he is going to play.

    "He may as well enjoy his break while he can get it."

  14. Post update

    Vardy only needs to score in his next three league games to equal his Premier League record for goals in consecutive games.

    Could we be seeing this celebration again?

  15. Post update

    Want more Jamie Vardy stats? Of course you do. He's brilliant.

    He became the first player to score in eight consecutive Premier League appearances since last did so back in November 2015 during his run of 11 in a row.

    Since Brendan Rodgers' first Premier League game in charge of Leicester on 3 March, Vardy has scored 25 Premier League goals - eight more than any other player.

  16. Post update

    So does that mean Liverpool are going to lose to Leicester but win the title? I reckon they'll take that.

    RookieSimRacing: Fun fact: when Leicester won the league, they lost away to Liverpool on Boxing Day, this year Liverpool play Leicester away on Boxing Day.

  18. Post update

    What do we make of those comments?

    Man City, who have won the title in the past two years and have all of these brilliant players, now can't compete?


  19. Man City might not be able to compete with top teams - Guardiola

    Pep Guardiola

    Guardiola had plenty more to say over the weekend too.

    The Man City manager says his side "might not be able to compete" with the best teams in Europe and have to "accept that reality".

    That's Manchester City who have won the Premier League in the past two seasons.

    "[Manchester] United have the quality to defend and the quality to attack on the counter-attack and you have to accept that," he said.

    "That is the level we face against Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus. They are the teams we have to face and the reality is maybe we are not able now to compete with them.

    "Maybe we need to live that as a club to improve, to accept the reality now and improve."

    Marcus Pearson: Another great performance from Leicester this weekend, Brendan has got the team playing fantastic football. Don’t think we will win the league but certainly exciting times at the King Power
