    Brentford v Leicester (Sun, 14:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Finally from Rodgers, he talks about fielding a strong team against Championship side Brentford in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday.

    "There will be some changes, with the games coming thick and fast," he said, "But we’ll put out a team to win the game.

    "We’ll still have a strong team, full of international players."

    As for Brentford, Rodgers says he has "enjoyed analysing" how they play.

    "I’ve really enjoyed watching Brentford," he said.

    "They remind me of my Swansea City side ten years ago. They play fantastic football, they have a real trust in their game."

  3. Liverpool 'will be back soon'

    Everton v Sheffield Wednesday (Sun, 18:00 GMT)

    Everton

    Liverpool's defeat to Burnley on Thursday means Everton can go above them in the table, for 24 hours at least, with a win against Leicester next Wednesday.

    Carlo Ancelotti wouldn't bite though when he was asked whether Burnley's win had boosted Everton's European hopes.

    "I was pleased to watch the game, and how Burnley competed, the spirit they showed in the game and so this is the beauty of football," said the Italian.

    "Liverpool is not in a good moment but Liverpool is a fantastic team, a fantastic manager, fantastic player so they will be back soon."

  4. Rodgers wants an attacking midfielder

    Brentford v Leicester (Sun, 14:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Rodgers has touched on the January transfer window and wanting an attacking midfielder.

    "Some are out of our price range, but if there is someone available that can support us, we will look to do that. But that doesn’t mean we can’t bring in very good players."

    "We’ve missed an attacking midfielder in Dennis Praet until April, we think, which is a big chunk of the season. We have a lot of defensive midfielders, but want someone more offensive to add to our game."

  5. Toffees set for quiet window

    Everton v Sheffield Wednesday (Sun, 18:00 GMT)

    Everton

    Carlo Ancelotti was asked about any potential signings for Everton this month, but the Italian suggested it would be a quiet transfer window at Goodison Park.

    "No changes, we really don't focus on this [transfers]," he said. "We are convinced we have a good squad, but no players have asked to leave, we have a good squad for all the season."

  6. Pep's Super League thoughts

    Cheltenham v Man City (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    The European Super League is something else Pep Guardiola has been thinking about

    Proposals, seen by BBC Sport, have been discussed amongst some of Europe's top clubs, with the potential for replacing the Champions League.

    The idea seems to be a clear attempt to generate more money for the bigger names.

    Guardiola doesn't have a view about whether it is right or wrong but he does feel it might create an opportunity to improve the general standard of competition.

    "We cannot lose the things that mean a lot. What does the FA Cup mean? And the leagues? We should make every league stronger. We need quality not quantity. That might mean we have to reduce the teams. But we cannot kill the lower divisions."

  7. Ancelotti eyes cup run

    Everton v Sheffield Wed (Sun, 18:00 GMT)

    Everton

    The FA Cup was the last trophy Everton lifted in 1995 and Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti, who won the trophy with Chelsea in 2010, is aware of its significance.

    "The FA Cup is an important competition, to reach the final or the semi-final we have to go step by step," he said. "We hope to have less difficulty for this game. We do not want to be the negative surprise.

    "We know its important in this country, we had problems in first game against Rotherham, we had difficulties. Sheffield Wednesday are coming with the standards they have, they are strong team and we have to be ready."

  8. No injury concerns for Cottagers

    Fulham v Burnley (Sun, 14:30 GMT)

    Fulham

    Fulham boss Scott Parker says he has no injury worries going into Sunday's fourth round tie against Burnley.

    "Everyone's fine to be fair," said Parker. "Obviously coming out of a tricky period with some tired legs but just general stuff, no real injury concerns."

  9. 'Foxes will rely on collective'

    Brentford v Leicester City (Sun, 14:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    More from Rodgers on having Vardy out and how his squad will cope.

    "When you don’t have one of the best striker’s in the league around, it’s disappointing," he told reporters.

    "We always try to rely on the collective, the group has always been able to find results. I’ve got other great strikers – Ayoze Perez is a and Kelechi Iheanacho."

    The Foxes boss also goes on to say that defender Wes Morgan will be out for a "few weeks" with injury.

  10. Pep's Sergio Aguero update

    Cheltenham v Man City (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola also gave an update on striker Sergio Aguero, who confirmed yesterday he had returned a positive coronavirus test.

    Aguero has hardly played this season and he is set for another week in isolation after just finishing one stint because he had close contact with someone who tested positive.

    "He felt uncomfortable for two or three days after the postive test, he had symptoms and was a bit tired. But he feels well now and we want him to come back.

    "For a long time we’ve missed our best striker."

  11. Mourinho plays down Ings links

    Wycombe v Tottenham (Mon, 19:45 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Jouse Mourinho says Tottenham do not need a new striker despite reports linking the club with a move for Southampton's Danny Ings, saying he is happy with Carlos Vinicius and Son Heung-Min as his back up forwards.

    “We are not a team that needs a third striker because our third striker is Sonny," he said.

    "We have the best, we are happy with Carlos. Ings I refuse to say any words about him because he is a Southampton player."

  12. Pep's problem

    Cheltenham v Man City (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    I asked Pep Guardiola if this season is a survival of the fittest and whether the champions would end up being the team who gets the least players injured, or at least the least number of key players injured.

    Guardiola said he didn't have the answer to that but: "It’s impossible.

    "To demand they are fit for 11 months playing every three days is impossible.

    "There are injuries at all the clubs. We knew it and we have tried to avoid it by taking better medical care of the players. But they are human beings. With this amount of competitions, the body says it’s enough.

    "When we demanded five substitutions, it’s for this reason. Why can we do it in the FA Cup but not the other competitions.

    "I’m not just saying it because it’s Kevin. It’s too many games and competitions, in the end, the players suffer."

  13. 'We have to play football'

    Man Utd v Liverpool (Sun, 17:00 GMT)

    BBC Sport reporter

    Jurgen Klopp says his team selection on Sunday will reflect a desire to win the game and progress in the FA Cup.

    "It's a cup game so the game will be decided that night. We want to win the game so that is how we will choose the line-up," he says.

    "We have to play football. We have to create, we have to defend, we have to score - 100% we know that. That is what we will try and do on Sunday."

  14. Massive blow for Man City

    Cheltenham v Man City (17:30 GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Kevin de Bruyne's injury is set to have a major impact on Manchester City's season.

    Depending upon how long De Bruyne is out, he is set to miss around 10 games.

    That includes Premier League matches against Liverpool, Tottenham and - possibly - Manchester United, plus the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against Borussia Monchengladbach.

    "We have to find a solution," said Guardiola, although he did not finish there.

  15. Trio doubtful for Spurs

    Wycombe v Tottenham (Mon, 19:45 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says Matt Doherty, Dele Alli, Serge Aurier are all doubts for Monday's trip to Championship side Wycombe. Giovani Lo Celso is definitely out with a thigh injury.

  16. Breaking'Vardy out for a few weeks'

    Brentford v Leicester (14:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Another injury blow, this time for Leicester.

    Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has said Jamie Vardy will be out "for a few weeks" to have a minor hernia operation.

    The striker has scored 11 goals in the Premier League already this season.

    "We’ve been managing him over the past few month," Rogers told reporters.

    "It will help the area repair. He can’t hold it off for much longer, there's a lot of time in the season for him to make an impact."

  17. DCL back for Toffees

    Everton v Sheffield Wednesday (Sun, 18:00 GMT)

    Everton

    Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti says Dominic Calvert-Lewin is available to face Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday after a hamstring injury.

    However, the Toffees will be without Lucas Digne, Alex Iwobi, Allan, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Fabian Delph and Niels Nkounkou.

    Ancelotti adds that Digne and Iwobi should return for the midweek Premier League match against Leicester.

  18. 'I cannot spend the money'

    Man Utd v Liverpool (Sun, 17:00 GMT)

    Emma Sanders

    BBC Sport reporter

    Liverpool have suffered a number of injuries this season so there has been plenty of discussions around whether Jurgen Klopp will be active in the transfer window.

    Last night, following their defeat to Burnley, Klopp suggested decisions are not in his control and he was asked to clarify those comments just now:

    "Of course somebody else is making the decisions. It is always like this. I cannot change that.

    "The situation we have, we discuss pretty much on a daily basis. That is our job actually.

    "We think 'can we improve?' Then we make recommendations. But I cannot spend the money. That is how it is."

  19. 'You have to build confidence'

    Man Utd v Liverpool (Sun, 17:00 GMT)

    Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on bouncing back from the defeat to Burnley: "Of course we go again, there is no doubt about that. When things don't work out on the pitch as we want them to work out, then there is an issue.

    "The issue is the things I tell the boys, I didn't say it clear enough. I have to change the way I tell the boys.

    "Confidence is something not naturally given. You have to build confidence. That's why we have to mention the word but it is not disappeared. We have to work. That is what you do."

  20. Post update

    That's all from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for now. Coming up we have updates from Everton, Liverpool, Tottenham, Fulham and Manchester City.
