  2. Hughes: 'Positivity a bare minimum'

    Arsenal v Southampton (Sun 14:15 BST)


    Mark Hughes did not mince his words when it came to what he expects at the very least from his players in North London.

    Saints are without a win in their last five games and the former Stoke boss said: "We’ve got to go there and get a positive result.

    "The bare minimum is a good performance for the travelling fans and to be positive in our outlook.”

  3. Hughes: 'I expect a reaction'

    Arsenal v Southampton (Sun, 14:15 BST)


    Mark Hughes

    Southampton might be in the mire in 18th, two points from safety but at least boss Mark Hughes can travel to Arsenal with a clean bill of health.

    A small mercy perhaps especially after last week's 3-0 defeat to West Ham, which left Hughes reaching for the DVD player this week. Watching that masterpiece back with his squad can't have been much fun!

    “I expect a reaction from the team," Hughes said.

    "We need to be more resilient when momentum goes against us. I’ve told them this week what is acceptable in games and what isn’t."

  4. Moyes: 'It's massive to control our own destiny'

    Chelsea v West Ham (Sun 16:30 BST)

    David Moyes and Antonio Conte

    Moyes was asked to assess Chelsea's recent form and their home defeat by Tottenham last weekend.

    "I have seen Chelsea a lot this season and I think, up until Eriksen scoring a worldy of a goal, they were on top against Spurs and would have been more than happy with their performance," he said.

    "The standard of the teams at the top of the Premier League is so high and, on any given day, one of them can beat the other.

    "As champions, everyone wants to take it off you the next year."

    On his own team's battle to stay in the top flight Moyes was upbeat. He said: "It's massively important to be in control of our own destiny and not being reliant on other results.

    "We've got Stoke City next weekend, then Manchester City, Manchester United and Everton all at home and I'm hopeful the crowd and everyone associated with the Club will play their part in getting us over the line."

  5. Benitez: 'Dubravka is a talker'

    Leicester City v Newcastle United (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Martin Dubravka

    Raael Benitez has also talked up the presence of Slovakian goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, 29, who has expressed his willingness to remain at Newcastle beyond his six-month loan from Sparta Prague.

    "He’s a keeper with experience and someone who is a talker, giving instructions to defenders," says Benitez.

    "Apart from the saves, he’s aware of things going on around the box and that’s crucial for a defender."

  6. Moyes: Antonio injury woes go on

    Chelsea v West Ham (Sun 16:30 BST)

    West Ham United

    David Moyes

    West Ham manager David Moyes has confirmed that forward Michail Antonio is out for the remainder of the campaign.

    "He's going to have an operation on his hamstring and the biggest thing now is to get him ready for next season," said Moyes.

    "We'll miss his great strength and pace.

    "He picked up a hamstring injury at the end of last season and has never really recovered from it. He's had some big injuries since I've been here."

    On playmaker Manuel Lanzini's fitness Moyes added: "He's got a medial ligament injury. He's able to run in straight lines at the minute. I wouldn't completely rule him out but he's a doubt."

  7. Joselu back in contention?

    Leicester City v Newcastle United (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has also been addressing the media ahead with a trip to Leicester City on the agenda for tomorrow.

    Islam Slimani made a welcome return from injury in last weekend's win over Huddersfield but the Algeria international is ineligible to face his parent club.

    That potentially means that Joselu - deep breath Newcastle fans - fit again after an ankle injury, may return. The Spaniard has scored just four goals this term.

    Will he be the man to help the Magpies reach the magical 40 point mark. They are on 35 at the moment.

  8. Moore: Chadli close but Sturridge still out

    West Brom v Swansea (Sat 15:00 BST)

    West Bromwich Albion

    Moore had mixed news on the injury front for the struggling Baggies.

    He said: "Nacer (Chadli) has been back involved in training. Daniel Sturridge isn't quite there yet but he's making real progress.

    "The week has been good and the players have been superb. The staff have been superb as well.

    "We're looking forward to the game tomorrow."

  9. Moore: 'The message is unity and family'

    West Brom v Swansea (Sat 15:00 BST)

    Albion are cut adrift at the basement, 10 points from safety, and now being led by caretaker boss Darren Moore after manager Alan Pardew was relieved of his duties earlier this week.

    But Moore is determined. "It's in my blood to want to do well and want to win," he said.

    "The supporters know that any challenge I am faced with I will tackle it head on. Hopefully i'll get a good reception from the fans, but for me it's all about togetherness tomorrow. The message from me is unity and family.

    "Anybody who knows me will know that all I'm focused on is Swansea on Saturday and nothing more than that. Together as a group we are really looking forward to the game."

  10. All present and correct

    Man City v Man Utd (Sat, 17:30BST)

    BBC Sport

    Apart from reserve keeper Sergio Romero, who has a knee injury, Jose Mourinho had all his senior players at training today.

    That included defensive pair Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian, who have not started a game in the Premier League since August and October respectively.

    There could also be a 325th appearance for Antonio Valencia who joined Manchester United from Wigan in 2009.

  11. Jose's not in a chatty mood

    Man City v Man Utd (Sat, 17:30BST)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    The last time I was at a Manchester United pre-match press conference, Jose Mourinho came out with an answer than was 13 minutes long.

    Today his entire press conference didn't last that length of time, and that includes the briefing for the newspapers that is embargoed until 10.30pm.

    Essentially, he did not want to talk about the impact Wednesday night's defeat will have on tomorrow's Manchester derby.

    His didn't want to talk about the gap to Manchester City.

    And he certainly didn't want to answer my question about whether buying Alexis Sanchez in January shows United can compete with City.

  12. Mourinho to the point

    Man City v Man Utd (Sat,17:30 BST)

    Manchester United

    There is also a prickly moment at Carrington when a journalist asks Jose Mourinho if Liverpool's approach against Manchester City has shown him how to defeat the league leaders.

    "I am not a pundit. I am not going to comment anything about Liverpool," says Mourinho.

    Well that was to the point from the United boss, who also brushed off a question about Alexis Sanchez from BBC Sport's Simon Stone.

  14. No man's land in second

    Man City v Man Utd (Sat,17:30 BST)

    Manchester United

    Jose Mourinho

    Forget the training ground smiles or the fact that Manchester United are second in the Premier League.

    Trailing runaway leaders Manchester City by 16 points places them in a sort of No man's land that the United boss Jose Mourinho, clearly doesn't relish.

    "It's easy to go to the books and to understand that with this number of points we would normally have been close most seasons," he says.

    "We are not because City have a good number of points. It is very difficult for the second team to be (not) fighting for the title, which we are not at this moment."

  15. Guardiola handles bus question calmly

    Manchester City v Manchester United (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Manchester City's team bus is attacked outside Anfield

    Alex Hendley, who was at the press conference for BBC Sport, writes: 'Yellow ribbon on show and more than slightly stern faced, Guardiola emphasises that the game tomorrow is a different competition, and that Wednesday's result won't affect that.

    A touch of an intake of breath in the room as the City manager faces his first question surrounding the team bus at Anfield - but with a wry smile Pep seems calm enough in his response.

    Pep's demeanour is confident on questions regarding Gabriel Jesus' performance at Anfield, hand and head gestures aplenty.

    He was happy with the Brazilian's performance, irrespective of the player himself's comments.

  16. 'My motivation is to finish second'

    Man City v Man Utd (Sat,17:30 BST)

    Manchester United

    Jose Mourinho

    So what exactly has Jose Mourinho had to say when his chief rival, Pep Guardiola, across the road is on the cusp of the Premier League title? It's not exactly the scenario any Manchester United boss would relish surely?

    It looks like he's played it with a straight bat. "My motivation is to finish second," he says.

    "Mathematically the top four is not done.That is first objective. After that I don't hide. In practical terms 2nd, 3rd, 4th is the same because we don't win the title but we qualify for the Champions League group phase. I prefer to finish second, we have been in second position for many months.

    "My objective for tomorrow is to try to have points to finish second."

  17. Guardiola: 'We need the fans more than ever'

    Manchester City v Manchester United (Sat 17:30 BST)

    Guardiola feels the City fans can play a big part in a win on Saturday.

    "It will be so important in bad moments that we feel our supporters are there," he said. "Sometimes the players, managers they don’t deserve the supporters but that is not the case (here).

    "Wednesday was a tough result, so difficult, but we’re going to try. Liverpool played like they always do at Anfield - the first 25 minutes of the second half we were good."

  18. Danny Ings to start?

    Everton v Liverpool (Sat, 12:30 BST)


    Danny Ings

    When one door closes and all that. Should Mo Salah not be fit their may finally be some good news for Danny Ings whose time at Anfield has been blighted by injuries.

    "Thank god Danny is here and in good shape. I will not say that I can guarantee it but there’s a good chance he could start tomorrow," says his manager Jurgen Klopp.

    "We have a few hours to go until we go into the hotel so you will see who is available or not when you see the line-up tomorrow. It is not about rotation but I don’t want to give too much away."

  19. The big Mo question?

    Everton v Liverpool (Sat, 12:30 BST)


    Mohamed Salah

    Forget Americanisms and talk of momentum, the only Mo that Liverpool supporters are interested in (and possibly Everton and Man City fans too) is whether a certain Mohamed Salah will be fit tomorrow after limping off against Manchester City on Wednesday night.

    The Egyptian has reportedly been spending some time in an oxygen chamber to heal a groin problem.

    "We tried everything to make him available and there's still 23 hours to go until we start so let’s see what happens," said boss Jurgen Klopp.

    "I cannot make Mo available because it’s the derby. I don’t think any of our supporters would want to do that. If he is a doubt he will not be involved."

    It's not like he's scored many goals this season is it? Just the 38!

  20. Guardiola: 'Three massive games on the horizon'

    Manchester City v Manchester United (Sat 17:30 BST)

    Sergio Aguero
    Image caption: Will Aguero be passed fit for one of the biggest games of City's season?

    "We have three massive games coming up - United, Liverpool and Spurs - we have to see the players condition," said Guardiola.

    "We have training later and we will see later. We will prepare the team to win the game."

    Asked about the fitness of Sergio Aguero, who missed the 3-0 defeat by Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday, he said: "I don’t know right now.

    "We have training this afternoon and we will see his physical condition."
