  11. MOTD Commentator's Notes: Saints v Leicester

    Tony Husband

    Match of the Day commentator

    "You wouldn't blame Claude Puel for having mixed emotions on his return to Southampton.He took Saints to a first major cup final in 14 years and, in a fixture-congested season of 53 games, steered them to eighth in the league.

    "Without that record, I doubt he would have got the Leicester job.

    "The side he brings to the south coast couldn't be a bigger contrast to the one he led by the end of last season.

    "Leicester have regained that swashbuckling buzz they had during their title-winning season. Puel has also picked a settled side, something he rarely did at St Mary's.

    "Statistically, Southampton are no better under Puel's successor Mauricio Pellegrino. But as Puel would probably admit after his own experiences, statistics don't mean everything."

  12. MOTD Commentator's Notes: Man Utd v Bournemouth

    Steve Wilson

    Match of the Day commentator

    "The mood at Old Trafford is bound to be pretty sombre after the manner of their defeat by Manchester City on Sunday, when there was simply no disguising that United lost to the better team.

    "United's task now is to ensure that they don't show any signs of weakness to the others who covet their place in the top four.

    "Eddie Howe will have taken some satisfaction from Bournemouth's recent run of just one defeat in six.

    "It has been a slow recovery from the awful start to the season which saw them lose their first four games - and they are still only three points above the relegation zone - but they should have enough to keep their heads above water come May."

  13. Lessons to be learned over teenager's death

    An inquest into the death of a 15-year-old girl from Bristol has concluded with an accidental death verdict.

    The teenager had been admitted to a secure psychiatric unit out of the area, but was discharged and returned home, against the wishes of her family who felt she still needed around the clock care.

    Shortly afterwards Becky took her own life.
