    Fulham have made a poor start to the season, losing all three Premier League matches before being knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Brentford on Thursday.

    Cottagers boss Scott Parker is hopeful the club will make some new signings to bolster the squad before the deadline.

    "I'd like to think that come Monday we will have some additions in the building to help us and the squad," he said.

    "When you take the step up from the Championship into the Premier League you need to evolve as a team and you need to add quality into that as well."

    Grant scored 19 Championship goals for the Terriers last season, while Slimani netted nine times while on loan at Monaco.

    “I’m respectful to the clubs and I’m respectful to my players here," said Bilic.

    “But the rumours are true, they are two that are on our list. Very quality players of course.”

    On any more potential incomings: “I wouldn’t anticipate any more coming in, but you never know”

    West Ham United

    David Moyes has missed West Ham's last three games as he was forced self-isolate after testing positive for Covid-19.

    Assistant Alan Irvine says Moyes is feeling fine and could return for Sunday's game with Leicester, though they will continue to follow the medical and government guidance.

    "He's okay and I spoke to him this morning," said Irvine. "He's not been in. He's feeling okay but at the moment we're all just following all the guidelines and various protocols. He's in contact with the medical people at the Club and they're in contact with the medical people at the Premier League.

    "At this moment I would think it's more likely that he won't be on the touchline at Leicester, but that's something that can change during the course of the day and tomorrow.

    "We will carry on working in the way we have tried to during his absence - he's obviously heavily involved in everything we're doing and making the final decisions, and that will continue whether he's on the touchline or not."

    I asked Carlo Ancelotti about the future of winger Yannick Bolasie, who has shown signs of frustration on social media this week about not featuring in the Everton manager's plans.

    The 31-year-old has not played this season.

    The Italian said: "He is doing well, training well and professionally. He is not part of the squad, he can train with us if he's not able to find a club by the end of market and if he stays we will train him.

    "But I said to him we have a big squad and unfortunately, there is no space for him."

    Alistair Magowan

    BBC Sport

    For Everton fans getting carried away at winning their first six games of the season since 1938, a word of warning from Carlo Ancelotti: the tough times are coming.

    Asked what had made it such a good start, the manager said: "A lot of reasons; the new signings improved the squad, and the quality and also the players are more motivated, more ambitious. We started well and the atmosphere is good.

    "But I know it's going to finish, this beautiful bubble, where we are living now. Everything is perfect and we are ok, sooner or later, it’s going to finish. The strength of the squad [shows] when the danger is coming, we have to be ready and maybe it comes tomorrow. If we are not focussed there, the danger will come tomorrow for sure."

  12. Rodgers excited by European challenge

    Leicester City

    It has been exciting few hours for Leicester, with the Foxes signing defender Wesley Fofana from Saint-Etienne before being drawn against Braga, AEK Athens and Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League.

    "We watched the draw, and it’s exciting," said Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers.

    "It’s the work we put in last year and we get the rewards for that, and we can’t wait to get started in the competition.

    “The first objective is qualification, if you can finish top then great, but qualification out of the group is the main concern”

    On new signing Fofana: "“A brilliant signing for us, we said at the start of the window that we wanted quality and I think the three players we’ve signed are that. That’s a big credit to Lee Congerton and his staff”

  13. Pulisic back for Blues

    Chelsea v Crystal Palace (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Christian Pulisic will return to the squad after injury, though he is only fit enough for the bench. The American hasn't featured since suffering a hamstring injury during the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal in August.

    After scrambling a 3-3 draw against West Brom last weekend and losing to Spurs on penalties, Frank Lampard was asked how important Saturday's clash with Crystal Palace was.

    “It's important, but as important as every game is," said Lampard.

    "Brighton was tough, we have lost to the champions and then clear mistakes at West Brom.

    "There is clear perspective of the first three games and we are getting more settled.

    "We will attack the game with confidence and a desire to win, like with every game.”

    "Everyone rallied around Mason, like they would with any in the team," he said.

    "He didn't let us down, it's been the opposite since he has been with us. He will play many games of high importance and he has our full support.”

  16. Lampard responds to transfer speculation

    Chelsea v Crystal Palace (Sat 12:30 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea have spent an estimated £220m on new players this summer, but are there any more deals to be done before the deadline?

    "We do have a big squad, I don't want to get into speculation in the final few days of the window, so we will see how that develops in the next few days," said Chelsea boss Frank Lampard. "We focus on the game tomorrow and we will see on Monday."

    On the futures of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Fikayo Tomori: "With every player in the squad, if the situation is a loan you have to consider what is the best for the player and best for the club first and foremost.

    "With those three players I would take those things into consideration, but I haven't got an answer for you. I have a good relationship with them all but thats one we will approach player by player in the coming days.

    "Once the window shuts every player that is here will be used because there is a long season and lot of competitions coming up. We will know more on Monday."

    But the Italian did say that forward Moise Kean "has a future" at Everton. "The club made a big investment with him last season, he's young," Ancelotti said. "This week he wasn't well so he won't be in the squad tomorrow but only for this reason. He has a future here and we are working on him every day."
