  2. 'There is something special growing here'

    Southampton v Man Utd (Sun, 14:00 GMT)

    Southampton

    Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl now talks about media reports linking him to the Manchester United manager's job: "It is not really something I listen to . I find myself listening to the radio when they talk about football it is interesting to hear. My only interest is what happens at this club.

    "I signed a long-term contract, the way we are improving this club gives me so much joy. I think there is something special growing here."

  3. Post update

    Man City v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Manchester City

    More from Pep Guardiola on Sergio Aguero, who of course once played under Diego Maradona for Argentina and was also once married to daughter Giannina, who is the mother of his son.

    Guardiola said: "It's difficult for me to talk about his feelings. The game against Olympiacos was hard.

    "Especially for his son, it's tough. He knew Maradona well and his son, it's his grandfather. It's a sad situation for his family, but he's ok."

  4. 'He's going to give us a decision'

    Man City v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Manchester City

    Now time for a bit of Pep on Sergio as we head over to Manchester City...

    And City boss Pep Guardiola says there is no pressure on striker Sergio Aguero to make a decision about his Manchester City future. City's record goalscorer is now in the final year of his contract at the Etihad Stadium.

    Guardiola, who agreed a contract extension himself earlier this month, said: "He's going to give us a decision. He deserves, with the club, fair talks to do what is best for him, for the club, for everyone."

    On whether Aguero, who is working his way back to fitness from knee and hamstring problems is ready to start, Guardiola adds: "He's still not in his best condition - his injury was long.

    "He needs to be so sharp but we don't have doubts. He needs a bit of time, training sessions and minutes. He has seven months ahead to show."

  5. Ings close to Saints return

    Southampton v Man Utd (Sun, 14:00 GMT)

    Southampton

    Now time for some positive injury updates from Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl: "Theo [Walcott] is okay [he has a broken bone in his wrist].

    "He is a bit of pain but it is not a problem for the weekend. Danny is back in training and might be an option for the Brighton game.

    "It was only a light surgery and it looks good."

  6. Digne out for two to three months - Ancelotti

    Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti confirms that left-back Lucas Digne will be out for "two to three months" with an ankle injury sustained in training, with the French international set for surgery on Monday.

    Ancelotti added: "It's a big loss because he is fantastic left-back, one of the best left-backs in Europe at this moment but we have to manage this, and we will be able to."

  7. 'Good progress'

    Southampton v Man Utd (Sun, 14:00 GMT)

    Southampton

    Now here is Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, who kicks off talking about the progression of his side: "We have seen some good progress in our game in the last few weeks against some tough teams and we showed that we could compete in those games.

    "Every week we are doing some things better. They are a good team and every team with such quality is tough to win against. We have to find solutions and not be scared about their quality.

    "If we get a chance we need to take it and grab it with both hands."

  8. 'Step in the right direction'

    Southampton v Man Utd (Sun, 14:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Football fans can return to some Premier League games over the coming weeks, but Manchester is in tier 3, so the club won't be allowed fans back at Old Trafford for the moment.

    United's next game with spectators will come at West Ham next weekend, when up to 2,000 Hammers fans will be allowed inside the London Stadium.

    "I'm very pleased we can let the fans in gradually," said Solskjaer.

    "Can’t wait to see fans at Old Trafford but it's a step in right direction. Still creates an atmosphere even though we are the away team."

  9. 'Unlikely for the weekend'

    Southampton v Man Utd (Sun, 14:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says midfielder Paul Pogba remains unavailable for his side's trip to the south coast.

    "Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba weren’t on the grass, so they are very unlikely for weekend," said Solskjaer.

    "Luke Shaw just started rehab. Jesse Lingard is back with the group after isolating and Phil Jones still out until after Christmas."

  10. History means nothing

    Chelsea v Tottenham (Sun, 16: 30 GMT)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says beating Tottenham twice last season is not important when the two rivals meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

    He acknowledges how league leaders Spurs have strengthened their squad in the summer, and their line-up against Ludogrets last night shows their depth.

  11. Pulisic back in contention

    Chelsea v Tottenham (Sun, 16:30 GMT)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea have been boosted ahead of their London derby with table topping Tottenham by the news that Christian Pulisic is back in contention.

    Kai Havertz is also available after playing against Rennes in the Champions League on Tuesday.

    "We're in good shape," said Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

  12. Post update

    West Ham v Aston Villa (Mon, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    More from West Ham manager David Moyes: "I'm just hoping that we can continue our good form.

    "I think we've been good at creating chances. One of the big things was to try and improve defensively, keep clean sheets, and thankfully we're showing that side of our game as well.

    "To score goals against Leicester, Wolves and Tottenham shows we've got that capability as well."

    "I think they were at the top of the league for a spell, Aston Villa, and it just shows you how quickly football can change.

    "They've had some really good recruitment this summer and I think that's given them a really good chance of finishing strongly."

    David Moyes
  13. 'It's a start'

    West Ham v Aston Villa (Mon, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    West Ham manager David Moyes has also been talking about the return of supporters to London Stadium.

    "It's great news for anybody who loves football. We were really looking forward to getting supporters back into the stadium," he said.

    "We'd have liked to have had more, but it's a start. Hopefully the quicker we can get to bigger numbers, the better.

    "I've got no doubt they'll play their part in following the rules and the club will have everything set up. I'm really looking forward to having the supporters back and seeing a hungry, energetic team who are picking up some good results.

    "I think the good news for me is the lowly clubs are getting supporters back as well, which is really important for clubs around the country."

  14. Post update

    West Ham v Aston Villa (Mon, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    West Ham manager David Moyes is in the building and his first question is on the state of Michail Antonio's hamstring.

    The forward's last appearance for the Hammers came on 24 October against Manchester City but he went off injured in that game after scoring.

    "He's joined in in training a couple of days," Moyes says.

    "We're trying to see how he is. It's just great to get him back out on the training pitch with us at the moment.

    "We want competition for places and I think we've got that now. Hopefully when he gets that opportunity we'll be ready, but we've got good competition for places at the moment."

  15. 'It is part of the game'

    Arsenal v Wolves (Sun, 19:15 GMT)

    Wolves

    Following the news that the Wolves Former Players' Association (WFPA) say dementia research "is long overdue", current manager Nuno Espirito Santo says it is a "very difficult situation".

    "I'm aware of the situation and I have already addressed it," said Nuno.

    "It is a very difficult situation because games require heading the ball, so we have to do it.

    "It is something that should have further studies so we can have a better opinion but I see a very difficult situation, because even in the youth, it is part of the game.

    "So how can you take away a part of the game? But I cannot ignore that and if that is the case, we have to do something."

  16. Post update

    That's all from Chris Wilder, we will hear from Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo next...

  17. 'Huge miss'

    West Brom v Sheffield United (Sat, 20:00 GMT)

    Sheffield United

    Sheffield United forward Lys Mousset has been out injured this season, but Chris Wilder says he will be involved against the Baggies.

    "Lys has been a huge miss for us, he has been outstanding since his transfer last season," said Wilder.

    "He is a game changer with raw pace and he is something out of the ordinary. We are looking for that in our group. One criticism is that we haven't taken big chances in big moments."

  18. 'It doesn't ease the pain'

    West Brom v Sheffield United (Sat, 20:00 GMT)

    Sheffield United

    Sheffield United are bottom of the Premier League table after a disappointing start to the season. Manager Chris Wilder says his side are "not where we would like to be".

    "I'm not delighted in terms of the results we have had this year," said Wilder.

    "But I believe they have been tight games, and listening to other people's opinions, they have said the same. It doesn't ease the pain of the position we are in and it's something we are desperate to affect."

  19. Post update

    West Brom v Sheffield United (Sat, 20:00 GMT)

    Right then, we're expecting to hear from Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder shortly...

  20. Rooney in the hotseat

    Moving away from the Premier League briefly, and Wayne Rooney will take sole charge of Derby County's Championship match at home to Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

    The former England captain, 35, has been in joint-interim charge alongside Liam Rosenior, Shay Given and Justin Walker for the Rams' past two matches.

    They have collectively overseen two defeats so far since previous manager Phillip Cocu's exit on 14 November.
