    Is Pep correct?

    Is Antonio Conte top of the class when it comes to managerial smarts?

    Or are you more of a fan of the way that Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone has chiseled into the Barcelona-Real Madrid duopoly in Spain?

    Or perhaps Thomas Tuchel's fresh-faced reinvention of Borussia Dortmund?

    Chelsea v Man City (20:00 GMT)

    Conte and Pep

    Two of the managerial big beast of the Premier League go head to head tonight as table-topping Chelsea - led by Antonio Conte - take on Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

    Guardiola was in sporting mood when asked about his opposite number ahead of tonight's 20:00 BST kick-off.

    "My opinion about my colleague Conte is that he's superb," said the Catalan.

    "He was able to make Italy play beautiful football - Juventus too - in a culture where it's so defensive.

    "He's an excellent manager, I learn a lot when I see his teams. Maybe he's the best."

  6. Koeman's top four assessment

    Koeman Mourinho

    Everton manager Ronald Koeman made an interesting observation after his side's 1-1 draw at Manchester United last night.

    The result came just three days after Everton were comprehensively beaten by Liverpool, who are now favourites to claim a top four spot at United's expense and a place in next season's Champions League.

    Koeman, it seems, finds Jose Mourinho's team far easier to play against than Jurgen Klopp's.

    "Manchester United play a different way to Liverpool," he said.

    "They have a different system, with different pressing. I feel more comfortable with that than the way Liverpool press.

    "United are strong United. They have individual qualities. But it isn’t pressing, pressing, pressing from the start. You get more time and you have more ball possession."   

  7. Mourinho's not Shaw about Luke

    Jose Mourinho has still got it in for left-back Luke Shaw after Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

    The 21-year-old replaced the injured Ashley Young in the second half, and it was his shot that led to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's 94th minute penalty after Ashley Williams handled the ball on the line.

    But that wasn't enough for Mourinho, who says Shaw needs to grow up, mature and understand the game better.

  8. Moyes 'surprised' by reaction to 'slap' comment

    Video caption: David Moyes 'deeply regrets' slap remark comments

    David Moyes says that he was surprised by the reaction his suggestion to a BBC reporter that she might 'get a slap' after asking a question that he disliked.

    Moyes subsquently  apologised for what he said to Vicki Sparks  after an interview following a draw with Burnley in March. 

    "I was surprised, in many ways," said Moyes after last night's 2-0 defeat by Leicester.

    "The world of football is a great business now. It employs an incredible amount of people now, be it through the media or on the training grounds, and for that reason it is a big talking point."
