    Liverpool v Bournemouth (20:00 BST)

    Brendan Rodgers and Eddie Howe

    "Bournemouth are still finding out the difference between the Premier League and the Championship and this is going to be a tough evening for them.

  9. What the managers say - Eddie Howe

    Liverpool v Bournemouth (20:00 BST)

    AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "Our aim is not to outplay Liverpool, or outpass Liverpool, or any nonsense like that. Our aim is to try and win the game.

    "Then how we do that, and how you go about best doing that, that is down to how you see the game, so it's not a competition on passes, it's a competition on winning the game. The football really is irrelevant, it's about finding a way to be competitive."

  10. What the managers say - Brendan Rodgers

    Liverpool v Bournemouth (20:00 BST)

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: "Firmino is building up his fitness really well. He's a guy that helps himself because he trains to the maximum every single day and he's coming along very, very well.

    Rugby Union

    Jonathan Joseph

    England centre Jonathan Joseph believes the two teams who qualify from England's Rugby World Cup pool, which also includes Australia, Wales, Fiji and Uruguay, can make it all the way to the Twickenham final.

    "It's a tough pool and teams have got to perform to the best of their ability right from the start if they want to go through," he said.

    "That's going to help moving on and I don't see any reason why the two teams who get through can't meet again. There are a lot of competitive teams in the tournament but the top two who come through our pool are capable of going all the way to the final."

    Eddie Howe could hand summer signing Tyrone Mings his Bournemouth debut at the expense of Charlie Daniels. Harry Arter and loanee Christian Atsu are still nursing injuries and are unlikely to feature.

    Manchester United were reportedly offering Sergio Ramos a pay rise to move to Old Trafford.

    Ramos added: "Honestly, if it was an economic decision I wouldn't have stayed. It wasn't a question of money. There were personal and professional things that I needed to organise and that is all sorted.

    Van Gaal then had his own say on the Belgian.

    "He has eight starts last season and 14 substitute appearances, so to say he didn't play is not true. He is 20. The characteristic of a young player is for them not to be so consistent. At a club like Manchester United you can never guarantee a top position. He knows that. "

    Charlie Austin

    The London Evening Standard reports that QPR striker Charlie Austin has been 'unsettled' by the transfer speculation surrounding him this summer, according to teammate Clint Hill.

    The 26-year-old has been strongly linked with a move away from Loftus Road and manager Chris Ramsey is resigned to losing him before the transfer window closes.

    "We won't know probably until the last day of the window," Hill admitted. "There's a lot of attention on him, he doesn't know where he is going to end up. Obviously, it's very unsettling for him."

  76. Searching for the positives


    Jon Coleman from the News & Star in Carlisle, take a bow. In Saturday's paper he wrote...

Going it alone for a whole season at United might leave Rooney ready for little more than the glue factory."

    Martin Samuel sounds a warning about the form and fitness of Wayne Rooney in Monday's Daily Mail.

    Manchester City

    Both were spotted in the tunnel on Sunday after City produced a performance that suggested an angry and hungry side intent on winning back the title. And after the first two games who would doubt their credentials?

    Defender Nicolas Otamendi could soon arrive from Valencia and, while Wolfsburg are now apparently prepared to up Kevin De Bruyne's wages to try to keep him, I know where I'd want to play this season if I was the Belgian.
