  2. No transfer clues

    Huddersfield v Man Utd (Sat, 15:00BST)

    Jose Mourinho is giving little away about his January transfer plans despite being heavily linked with a move for Arsenal's Mesut Ozil in the next window.

    Mourinho missed out on a fourth signing - Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic - in the summer and the Croat has since signed a new contract with the Italian giants.

    He clearly was not in the mood to discuss any other options.

    He said: "We are in October, we have November, December and half of October to play, so why should I speak about the market?"

  3. Pep challenges his side to improve

    Manchester City v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola won't allow his side to rest on their laurels, despite their free-scoring form taking them top of the Premier League.

    The Blues boss says if the players "believe it is done there is no point to keep going" and instead is challenging them to keep improving.

    He also has a lot of respect for Burnley's improved away form this campaign, and expects them be a difficult opponent as "what they do, they do really well".

    He does have Sergio Aguero back fit just three weeks after he injured his ribs in a car accident in Amsterdam. The Argentinian has been an unused substitute for City's last two wins, but is available if needed to break the deadlock tomorrow.

  4. Happy New Year for Zlatan

    Huddersfield v Man Utd (Sat, 15:00BST)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Jose Mourinho was not at his most expansive at Carrington this afternoon but he did confirm he expects to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic back in action before the end of the year.

    Ibrahimovic suffered a cruciate ligament injury in April but Manchester United were so confident of his recovery that they have already given the veteran Swede a one-year contract.

    Ibra has been working hard at United's training complex but he is yet to join the main training group.

    Still, if he is back for the congested Christmas programme, it will be a major boost for Mourinho.

  5. 'Big club' heading to Huddersfield

    Huddersfield v Manchester United (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Manchester United

    Jose Mourinho on facing Huddersfield: "We are silly if we don't know what is expected for us, unless it's a new player in the Premier League which we have only Victor Lindelof. Apart from that everybody knows the Premier League and knows what it means to play against newly promoted teams.

    "Every team is good and thinks well, that they can win every match against every opponent. The players will be buzzing and the supporters will be happy to have a big club playing in their stadium."

  7. Where are Pogba and Zlatan?

    Huddersfield v Manchester United (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Manchester United

    Jose Mourinho discusses the fitness of Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

    "Paul is not here, I don't know when he comes back, when he's available, I've no idea," he said of the Frenchman.

    "Zlatan is here, he's working here, under our control. He's working so, so, so, so hard but he's not going to be back in the next week or couple of weeks. We'll let him take his time and be back when everyone feels is the right moment.

    "Do I think he will be back in 2017? Yes I do. But that is just a feeling."

  8. Rafa only 'talks about football'

    Newcastle v Crystal Palace (15:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez on a potential takeover of the club: “My opinion is we have to play against Crystal Palace. I have to concentrate on that.

    "We talk about football. I know the history and opinions. Let’s be sure we prepare set pieces, tactics, what we can do in the game.”

    "My position is simple. I am the manager and I concentrate on football. I have to be sure my players think about three points.”

    Jose Mourinho is speaking in his news conference at Carrington, before his Manchester United team make the short trip to Huddersfield.

  10. Newcastle has 'massive' potential'

    Newcastle v Crystal Palace (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez: “We have a good team with young players and they are improving. I am positive in terms of what we can achieve.

    "The fans, the club, the potential, is massive. If we do well on the pitch, everything is easier.

    “Crystal Palace have played some good football. They did really well (against Chelsea) so they will have confidence, but no game is easy.”

  11. Zaha to the rescue

    Newcastle v Crystal Palace (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Newcastle, who currently sit in ninth place in the league table, take on bottom side Crystal Palace at St James Park.

    Rafa Benitez' side have picked up two wins in their last five games but also held onto a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at the beginning of the month.

    Crystal Palace were without a goal or a point before they produced a shock result against Chelsea last weekend.

    Wilfried Zaha's return inspired a stunning 2-1 victory over reigning champions Chelsea as they picked up their first league win and second victory in all competitions under Roy Hodgson.

    Can they come up with the goods this weekend against the Championship title holders?

  12. Conte 'not happy' with results

    Chelsea v Watford (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, on why his team have suffered a dip in form: "I think we are working 70% less this season. We are having trouble, tactical and physical aspects because we play every two or three days.

    "It is impossible to work on physical and tactical aspects, to pay less attention in every detail. At the moment, after two defeats and a draw, I am happy for the commitment and efforts of the players but if you ask me about the last results, I am not happy.

    "I don't think any coach can be happy after these results."

    Antonio Conte
  13. 'Respect' for Burnley

    Manchester City

    Pep Guardiola on Burnley: "We have a lot of respect for what they have done. With the same people and same manager they had problems winning away last season. But they've taken points at Anfield, Tottenham and Everton. What they do they do really well.

    "We have to try and be dynamic and quick."

    Pep Guardiola
  14. 'I think this is a stupid subject'

    Chelsea v Watford (12:30 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, asked if he regrets responding to comments from Jose Mourinho about injuries: "Regret? Why every coach has to talk about his job and himself and his team and players, not the other. My answer is always the same. Every coach must focus on work. It is the best way.

    Sky's reporter pressed him on whether Jose Mourinho annoys him. Conte responded: "I think this is a stupid subject. It is funny to see your interest in this."

    Pep Guardiola is asked what more he can get from his Manchester City side: "I've said many times we have played well but we can improve. The reason why we are here is because we have the belief. Hopefully we can maintain that level."

    "We play at home and after two defeats in the league we want to come back to win."

  17. Pochettino and chill

    Tottenham v Liverpool (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Rob Nothman

    BBC Sport

    Pochettino is currently a man at ease with life.

    He said he was very proud of the flexibility of his players - and the way they’ve accepted different styles of play.

    The only clouds on the horizon are injuries to Wanyama and Dembele. Wanyama will have a scan next week - Dembele suffered a hip problem earlier this week and can’t cope with the intensity of training at the moment.

  18. Team news

    Manchester City v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Pep Guardiola on Sergio Aguero's fitness: "For the game against Stoke he had just one training session. He was fit before Napoli and is ready for tomorrow.

    "Normally when we play international games, I make decisions the night before or the same day to see how the players feel."

    Guardiola added that captain Vincent Kompany still isn't ready to return.

    Sergio Aguero
  19. Team news

    Tottenham v Liverpool (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Mousa Dembele sustained a hip injury during training in Madrid and is currently undergoing assessment and treatment

    Erik Lamela is training with the team as he continues his recovery but is unlikely to feature against Liverpool.

    Victor Wanyama is continuing his rehabilitation following a knee injury and will see a specialist during the next week to assess his progress.

  20. Wembley win or Wembley curse?

    Tottenham v Liverpool (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Tottenham have won their last three Premier League matches and recorded a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday.

    Harry Kane has scored six goals already this season and has bagged twice in five appearances against Liverpool. Will he get his name on the score sheet again this weekend?

    It was 1-1 when the two teams met in this fixture last season but Liverpool got the upper hand in the corresponding fixture at Anfield in February.

    Tottenham have only picked up three victories in all competitions at Wembley this season so will they be able to hold off Liverpool's attacking threat?
