    Until then...

    Sid: I reckon Ole will lead Man Utd to old Big Ears this season

    That would be some achievement Sid, but I like your optimism...

  3. Pique out

    Dynamo Kyiv v Barcelona (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    As we reported earlier, Barca will be without Lionel Messi for tomorrow's trip to Dynamo Kyiv.

    But they'll also be without stalwart defender Gerard Pique, who has suffered a knee injury,

    Pique, 33, sprained the internal lateral ligament in his right knee and suffered a partial injury to the anterior cruciate ligament during Saturday's defeat by Atletico Madrid.

    Man Utd v Basaksehir (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    That's all from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    Victory for his side tomorrow would put them in a commanding position in Group H, but it would not seal qualification.

    As Solskjaer said, depending on other results, his side could need 12 points to progress to the knockout stages.

    They could even end the day outside the top two if they lose to Basaksehir, as they did in Istanbul in the reverse fixture.

  5. 'We will see if there is any reaction tomorrow'

    Man Utd v Basaksehir (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he hopes midfielder Paul Pogba will be available for his side's match with Istanbul Basaksehir.

    "He trained this morning, so we'll see if there's any reaction when we report tomorrow," sad Solskjaer.

    "Luke Shaw is out, Phil Jones is out and Jesse Lingard is still self-isolating after being in contact with a positive case.

    "There are one or two things we need to look at."

    Paul Pogba
  6. 'The players are developing'

    Man Utd v Basaksehir (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he does not want his side to play with just "one style".

    "We want to attack quickly and be good on the break. When teams drop back, you need to break them down," said Solskjaer.

    "We showed that against Everton and we scored the winning goal on a counter attack. We want to dominate games and the players are developing."

  7. 'We were disappointed with the last game'

    Man Utd v Basaksehir (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Manchester United are top of Group H after picking up six points from their opening three games, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his side may need 12 points to qualify for the next stage.

    "We started well with two wins but we were disappointed with the last game against Istanbul. We need 10 points to go through but you may need 12 points," said Solskjaer.

    "We are going to go into this game to try and win it, and to try and win it well with a good performance because we have games coming thick and fast. That defeat last time was a big blow."

  8. Solskjaer speaks

    BBC Sport

    Three weeks ago, Manchester United suffered a horrible defeat in Turkey that undermined the magnificent start they had made to their Champions League campaign.

    They really must win the re-match at Old Trafford tomorrow night ahead of re-matches with Paris St Germain and RB Leipzig.

    United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka are due to virtually meet the media shortly.

  9. Post update

    Rennes v Chelsea (Tues, 17:55 GMT)

    That's your lot from Frank Lampard. Victory for his side in France tomorrow will seal qualification for the knockout stages.

    The Blues are also just two points off Premier League leaders Tottenham, who they host on Sunday.

    So far so good...

    Frank Lampard
  10. 'He is very important to me'

    Rennes v Chelsea (Tues, 17:55 GMT)


    Speculation has been surrounding Olivier Giroud's future with the Frenchman having not started a Premier League game this season.

    Giroud's agent has warned that the World Cup winner will leave the club if the situation does not change, but Frank Lampard says he has a "good relationship" with 34-year-old.

    "I want Oli [Giroud] to stay," said Lampard.

    "He is very important to me and I know what he has to offer. I know he wants to play but he always trains brilliantly, no matter what.

    "I saw those quotes from his agent but they didn’t surprise me. I know Oli and we talk all the time."

    Frank Lampard
  11. 'Big individuals have come in'

    Rennes v Chelsea (Tues, 17:55 GMT)


    Chelsea have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine game, and Frank Lampard says there were "some things to address on the training pitch".

    "Some of the goals we have conceded this year were mistakes, and earlier this season too," said Lampard.

    "Sometimes they are fine margins and what has gone up is the confidence and the concentration of the team.

    "Work and personnel helps that, we have had big individuals that have come in with Edouard Mendy, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell, and the collective has to be the most important thing."

  12. 'We have to respect the game'

    Rennes v Chelsea (Tues, 17:55 GMT)


    Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says he will take the trip to Rennes at "face value" and is not dismissing the challenge despite his side facing Premier League leaders on Tottenham on Sunday.

    "I'm fully focused on the challenge of Rennes because they were impressive when we played them at Stamford Bridge," said Lampard.

    "If we get the wrong result we make it a difficult couple of games next, so we have to respect the game."

  13. Post update

    Rennes v Chelsea (Tues, 17:55 GMT)

  14. Messi stays home

    Dynamo Kyiv v Barcelona (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Let's start by bringing you the news that Lionel Messi will not be travelling to Ukraine for Barcelona's game with Dynamo Kyiv.

    It follows a disappointing performance by the Argentine in their first league defeat to Atletico Madrid since 2010 on Saturday.

    As if the Messi exit rumours needed more fuel on the fire...

    Wolves v Southampton (20:00 GMT)

    Wolves are hoping to have skipper Conor Coady available to face Southampton despite a recent Covid-19 scare.

    Rayan Ait-Nouri also withdrew from international duty and his adductor problem will be assessed, while Leander Dendoncker will be fit.

    Southampton duo James Ward-Prowse and Ryan Bertrand are both available again after recent hamstring problems.

    Saints' only absentee is Danny Ings, who has a knee injury.

    Burnley v Crystal Palace (17:30 GMT)

    Burnley are bolstered by the return of full-backs Erik Pieters and Phil Bardsley after injury.

    Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Charlie Taylor should be fit but Robbie Brady is a doubt due to a tight hamstring.

    Crystal Palace defensive trio James Tomkins, Tyrick Mitchell and Joel Ward are all back in training, leaving the suspended Luka Milivojevic as the Eagles' only certain absentee.

    Eberechi Eze has been nursing a minor muscle injury and might not be risked.
