Premier League team news: Bournemouth v Sunderland (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

Bournemouth will be without midfielder Andrew Surman because of a hamstring injury so Dan Gosling could come in, while winger Junior Stanislas has been struggling with a calf problem. 

Sunderland manager David Moyes will be serving a one-game touchline ban and will also be without captain John O'Shea because of a hamstring injury. Centre-half O'Shea was forced out of last week's home defeat to Arsenal shortly before half-time so Papy Djilobodji, who replaced the Irishman, could return to the starting line-up.

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin, who has been linked to Manchester City and a return to Barcelona, has said he is happy at Arsenal.

He told the Evening Standard: "If I wanted to play there (Barcelona) I would have stayed there. 

 "I was very happy when Arsenal showed interest in me and I decided to come here. I'm not looking back, I'm just looking to help Arsenal."

West Brom will be without club record signing Nacer Chadli against Leicester on Sunday.

 The midfielder has undergone a minor knee operation to remove some cartilage and is expected back after the two-week international break which follows this weekend's fixtures.

Striker Saido Berahino will also be absent as he has been sent on a four-day training camp in France to work on his fitness, while defender Jonas Olsson has a slight hamstring strain and is a doubt.

James McClean is suspended after incurring a fifth yellow card of the season against Manchester City last weekend. 

Apology accepted?

Man City v Middlesbrough (15:00 GMT)

Simon Stone

BBC Sport

It's still not entirely certain whether Yaya Toure's apology has been accepted or not - but it is fairly clear Pep Guardiola doesn't like discussing him.

As the third question was asked about the Ivorian at today's Manchester City press conference, Guardiola said he did not want to answer any more.

So, we don't know if the apology has been accepted, or just as importantly, if he has any realistic chance of being picked.

Time will tell on the latter. My inclination would be to think no.

Kane return 'very good news' - Pochettino

Arsenal v Tottenham (Sunday, 12:00 GMT)

Some quotes from Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, as striker Harry Kane is back in contention to play for the Spurs for the first time since 18 September after an ankle injury.

Spurs play away at rivals Arsenal in the north London derby on Sunday and Pochettino says: "We are very happy with Harry, he had a good training session - he is fit.

"In the last few seasons he has been very important for us and was the top scorer in the league (in 2015-16). It is important for the club, it is very good news and good to have him back. He can help the team."

But defender Toby Alderweireld is out as his recovery from a knee injury is taking longer than expected.

"He has struggled to recover and it has been a slow recovery," says Pochettino.
