  1. Goodbye

    Right that's all from me.

    Here are some of the best bits of content around today to keep you going:

    Thanks for joining me and see you soon.

  2. 'He has to carry on what he's doing'

    Huddersfield v Wolves (Tues, 19:45 GMT)


    The Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has also been up in front of the media with his team travelling to Huddersfield on Tuesday.

    Here's what he had to say about it and the future of on-loan Benfica and Mexico forward Raul Jimenez:

    "It's going to be a very tough game. They are a good team in a bad moment. So we respect that and know that there is quality there that will make our task very hard.

    "He is doing OK and when the moment comes, a decision will be made.

    "It's clear in the schedule and the dates are clear so he has to carry on what he's doing. He did it today and he has to do it tomorrow and the day after."

  3. Sala plane found in three parts

    Emiliano Sala

    Wreckage of the plane carrying Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala was found in three parts on the seabed, according to an official report.

    The broken body of the Piper Malibu aircraft was held together by cables, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said.

    The 28-year-old died when the plane he was in with pilot David Ibbotson, 59, crashed in the English Channel en route from Nantes to Cardiff on 21 January.

    The AAIB is investigating the crash.

    You can read more about that news here.

  4. Wagner, Rodgers & Benitez linked to Leicester

    Depending on who you believe former Huddersfield head coach David Wagner is in the running to replace Claude Puel at Leicester City.

    According to the Huddersfield Examiner, Wagner is being mentioned in the same breath as Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers and Newcastle's Rafael Benitez.

    The Sun though, have named Rodgers as Puel's likely successor.

    It's all in the gossip.

  5. Messi, Hazard, Sancho - who is Europe's top dribbler?

    Eden Hazard, Lionel Messi & Jadon Sancho

    Players in Europe's top five leagues have been ranked by the successful dribbles made per minute played.

    And it makes for some pretty interesting reading here.

  6. 'A win would mean so much'

    Huddersfield v Wolves (Tues, 19:45 GMT)

    Huddersfield Town

    More from the Huddersfield head coach Jan Siewert:

    “A win would mean so much for everyone, especially the supporters. How they have backed us ever since I’ve been here is incredible to me.”

    A win of course would also be Huddersfield's first since 25 November when ironically they won at Wolves. That was 14 league fixtures ago.

  7. 'We have to run like hell'

    Huddersfield v Wolves (Tues, 19:45 GMT)

    Huddersfield Town

    Huddersfield head coach Jan Siewert has also been up in front of the press this afternoon. His side are currently propping up the Premier League and are 14 points from safety with 11 games remaining.

    And it sounds like he may well make a few changes to a side that has lost its last five games.

    "The least that everyone deserves at this club is that everyone gives 100%. We have to run like hell and after Newcastle I was disappointed. The players who signed for Huddersfield have at least have to fight to stay in the Premier League.

    “We had 2,000 fans in Newcastle, they deserve it so much. You have to fight. I told the players I wasn’t pleased with that situation. We will need fresh legs against Wolves"

  8. 'Almiron gives us pace and energy'

    Newcastle v Burnley (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    More from the Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez speaking about Miguel Almiron and Sean Longstaff.

    "He [Almiron] did really well (on Saturday). We knew he could give us pace and energy and he did it. Everything we were expecting from him, he did it and he did it well.

    "I remember talking to [Longstaff] him before, because everyone was saying he had to go on loan. We decided to keep him and I'm really pleased. At the moment, he's doing well."

  9. Puel statement

    Leicester City

    Former Leicester City boss Claude Puel has drafted this statement via the League Managers Association.

    Pretty standard fare.

    Claude Puel statement
  10. 'You got what you saw with Claude'

    Leicester v Brighton (Tues, 19:45 GMT)

    Leicester City

    The Leicester first team coach Mike Stowell has also been asked to respond to comments made by former defender Robert Huth, who called Claude Puel, "hard work".

    "Every manager has a different personality, what you got with Claude was what you saw," he said.

    "But his coaching and football knowledge was excellent.

    "It’s good that the game has come so quick, and that’s good after a defeat you don’t want a long week. We’re keeping things bright and getting the players feeling good about themselves."

  11. 'The players haven’t let him down'

    Leicester v Brighton (Tues, 19:45 GMT)

    Leicester City

    More from Leicester first team coach Mike Stowell on Claude Puel's exit from the club:

    "The players haven’t let him down at all. The results are poor, but the performances have been good. You get mistakes, they’re not deliberate, they’re just mistakes. This is a good young, bright team.

    “Claude has an excellent record of bringing youth players through. Young players like Harvey Barnes and Hamza [Choudhury] have been given opportunities.”

  12. Chilwell fit

    Leicester v Brighton (Tues, 19:45 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Leicester coach Mike Stowell has confirmed that Ben Chilwell is fit ready to play against Brighton tomorrow evening.

    Every other player came through the weekend without any knocks. Only Daniel Amartey and Marc Albrighton are still injured.

  13. 'Puel had the club at heart'

    Leicester v Brighton (Tues, 19:45 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Can managerless Leicester stop the rot?

    Leicester may be eight points above the relegation zone, but six defeats in their last seven games, led to the end of Claude Puel's reign as manager.

    And first team coach Mike Stowell is now up in front of the media fielding questions.

    "It’s always sad to see a manager leave the Club. He (Claude Puel) had the Club at heart," Stowell said.

    "Performances have been really good, but sometimes you don’t get the rub of the green. We have professional players and they’ll get on with the job.”

  14. 'I want to stay up with Newcastle'

    Newcastle v Burnley (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    The Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez is out of contract this summer so understandably gets thrown a question about any interest he might have in the vacant Leicester City job.

    "I'm really focused on the next game. I think you know what my answer would be," he said.

    "I want to stay up with Newcastle. I understand the issue about my contract being up.

    "You have to understand my main target is to get three points against Burnley. The supporters will be happy if we get three points against Burnley."

  15. Post update

    It's always helpful when managers run to time and the Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez is next up....

  16. 'It's not a time to judge'

    Man City v West Ham (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    But what about Manuel Pellegrini's time at West Ham?

    "We need to wait until the end of the season to judge how much we have progressed. We still have eleven games and 33 points to play for and are four points from seventh," he said.

    "It's not a time to judge."

    "The club is improving in every sense - squad, training ground, in the way we are playing, which I like. I hope we can continue to work in this way.

    "I would be happy if we are in the position at the end of the season we deserve for the way we played. We have never been fighting against relegation."

  17. 'I had three beautiful years at City'

    Man City v West Ham (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    More from the West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini:

    "I had three beautiful years (at City) especially when we won the Premier League and the League Cup, and we scored the most goals in history in England.

    "The second year was a little bit more difficult and we couldn't win the title and were punished by Financial Fair Play rules so we couldn't sign any new players, which is important when you've won the title

    "The third year we won the League Cup again and got to the semi-finals of the Champions League and lost to Real Madrid by an own-goal."

  18. 'We have played without eight or nine all season'

    Man City v West Ham (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    Here is some more from the West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini. This time he's talking about injured players as he tackles questions about Man City duo Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte and Hammers midfielder Manuel Lanzini.

    "I don't think it will have taken much out of them," he said.

    "They have a strong squad and can make changes.

    "They have three players injured and it will not change too much as they have a strong squad. We have played without eight or nine all season.

    "Fabian Balbuena and Winston Reid have started doing part of the session with us, which is good news for them."

    "We must be careful with him [Lanzini. He played 15 minutes and did very well. The important thing is he is not afraid of playing or worried about his knee, so we will try to give him more minutes in every game."

  19. 'It's not for me to criticise'

    Man City v West Ham (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    Right here is the West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini. On Wednesday (20:00 GMT) he returns to the Etihad for the first time since being replaced as Manchester City manager by Pep Guardiola in 2016.

    But guess what - he starts with questions about the Carabao Cup final:

    "It's a strange situation, of course. Normally a player goes out and Willy Caballero knows all the Man City players and is good at saving penalties, so they wanted to change him.

    "I don't want to talk about that because a lot of different things can happen in that situation. Willy reacted very well because he was always supporting his teammates.

    "I am not talking any more because it's not for me to criticise all."
