  1. All things Klopp

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    So there’s hope after all with Phil Coutinho’s injury. He may be able to play against Huddersfield after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp revealed that it’s ‘not clear yet whether he’s out on Saturday.’

    That was one piece of good news and the other is that Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane should be back after the international break.

    There was no talk about about Simon Mignolet or goalkeeping but Dejan Lovren has had a good week training after his first half substitution against Tottenham. Klopp said: “When I think about Dejan there are a lot more positive things than negatives ones. Everything is ok. He's had good week."

    The Liverpool manager went on to say: “You cannot imagine how it feels to have your mistakes discussed in public. I'm not the kind of person to stand around with a smart phone rather than helping."

  2. 'Lack of respect'

    Bournemouth v Chelsea (17:30 BST)

    Conte now talks about newspaper stories which say Chelsea's players have text former coach Steve Holland to say they miss him.

    Holland is now part of the England set-up.

    "It's a lack of respect," said Conte. "I can see why they would write about them sacking me. But to write about other people in this way, it is incorrect.

    "It's not good when this person has to send me a message to tell me 'I'm sorry this isn't true." Why do that to a person?"

  3. Conte hits back at reports

    Bournemouth v Chelsea (17:30 BST)

    Responding to reports that Carlo Ancellotti is waiting to replace him at Chelsea because he's not getting on with the players, Antonio Conte says...

    Well, I can't type what he's said because he's done a swear. But he's basically saying the stories are nonsense.

    "In the past, it's happened the same with the other managers. The stories try to create problems between me and the players. If people continue to write about this, I feel like I answered very well in the past about these issues."

    Chelsea's press man then jumps in to say these stories are "absolute nonsense".

  4. Post update

    Bournemouth v Chelsea (17:30 BST)

    Brace yourselves, it sounds like Antonio Conte is not a happy man in his new conference. He's been asked about the reported unrest in his camp...

  5. Injury news

    Bournemouth v Chelsea (17:30 BST)

    Antonio Conte has confirmed Victor Moses will miss Chelsea's game with Bournemouth with a hamstring injury, and N'Golo Kante still isn't fit to play.

    But the Blues midfielder could return for their next game against Roma.

    "We have to try overcome this period," Conte said of his injury list.

    "We have faced a lot of problems. We are going well. We have the points we deserve."

  6. Puel on stage

    Leicester v Everton (16:00 BST)

    Claude Puel has begun! The first few questions are from French journalists.

    He's started off talking about his time at Southampton, and (through the translator) he tells the media: "I managed to improve my English a little bit, but it still needs perfecting."

    More to come... in English.

  7. Unsworth in the hotseat

    Leicester v Everton (16:00 BST)

    Everton's caretaker boss David Unsworth is about to get going in his news conference.

    The former Toffees defender takes charge of his first Premier League match since replacing Ronald Koeman - temporarily at least.

    Everton occupy 18th spot in the table. They're in the drop zone on goal difference only.

    Currently, I'm watching Everton's online community post comments about where Unsworth has disappeared to, and whether Carlo Ancelotti is going to rock up instead.

  8. Welcome, Claude

    Leicester v Everton (16:00 BST)

    It's fair to say there was a mixed response to Claude Puel's appointment as Leicester manager.

    But Puel comes to the King Power with a decent record.

    He led the Southampton to eighth in his first season in charge, as well as reaching the EFL Cup final, before he was dismissed over the summer.

    Puel had also won silverware during his time managing Monaco.

    The Frenchman replaced Craig Shakespeare this week and will take charge of his first game against managerless Everton on Sunday.

    He'll be speaking to the media shortly.

  9. Conte on his way

    Bournemouth v Chelsea (17:30 BST)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Awaiting Antonio Conte here in Cobham, where he will preview Chelsea's game with Bournemouth. You can listen to the game live on BBC Radio 5 Live at 17:30 BST.

    Conte made nine changes for the EFL Cup win over Everton midweek. We're expecting news on who will return for the Champions.

    His former manager, Carlo Ancellotti, who Conte called a “great friend” in a news conference here last season has been tipped in the papers today to take his job. We will hear what he has to say about that shortly.

    We are due to get under way soon.

  10. Coutinho injury explained

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Jurgen Klopp has dismissed claims Phillipe Coutinho will definitely miss tomorrow's match.

    "It's not clear yet," said the Liverpool boss.

    "Last week he had some back problems. During the week it settled with treatment. Now he has a problem with the abductor. It's not clear whether he's out for tomorrow. We'll make the decision after training today. He missed training yesterday but that's all at the moment."

  11. "He is my best friend but it changes nothing"

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has arrived and has spoken about his friendship with opposition manager David Wagner.

    "We had a little chat on Monday but then it was clear for both of us. I didn't ask him how he was going to line up and I didn't ask him," said the German.

    "But it's exciting. I'm really happy we are playing against each other in the Premier League. Nobody would have expected that 20 or 30 years ago. That makes it even nicer.

    "When I was younger I played against my best friends all the time and I loved nothing more than winning against them. He is my best friend and we have a close relationship but that changes nothing about the game."

  12. Which player is indispensable to City?

    West Brom v Manchester City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    BBC football analyst Pat Nevin looks at the reasons behind Manchester City's brilliant start to the season, and identifies the one player who is crucial to Pep Guardiola's plans.

  13. Pep on his way

    West Brom v Manchester City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    BBC Radio Manchester

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will be glad it’s the return of the Premier League and a return to the correct weight of football after a midweek marathon in the EFL Cup against Wolves.

    This game against West Brom will be City’s fourth game out of their last five Premier League fixtures to kick off at 15:00 BST on a Saturday which, to me, seems odd - why deprive TV audiences of Pep’s great entertainers?

    As ever, there’ll be questions of Kompany’s fitness and Aguero’s prowess and I’m convinced Pep will tell us West Brom will pose a tough challenge for his side...

    Manchester City
  14. Post update

    Brighton v Southampton (Sun, 13:30 GMT)

    Chris Hughton has indeed arrived and confirmed that Brighton's only injury absentee is Steve Sidwell.

    The 34-year-old hasn't played this season after having back surgery in September.

  15. Post update

    Brighton v Southampton (Sun, 13:30 GMT)

    I've been scouring the interweb to see whether Brighton boss Chris Hughton has turned up for his news conference yet, and I've happened to stumble upon this simply brilliant game face from Seagulls midfielder Pascal Gross on their Twitter feed.

    Blue steel to the max.

  16. Frenemies

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Jurgen Klopp and David Wagner are the bestest of friends. But this weekend they are rivals.

    The former team-mates come up against each other at Anfield, as Wagner takes his Huddersfield side to play Liverpool.

    This will be the first league meeting between the two teams since February 1972.

    The Terriers come into the match having beaten Man Utd last weekend.

    Only three newly promoted sides have previously defeated both Liverpool and United in the same Premier League season - Bolton Wanderers in 2001-02, Manchester City in 2002-03 and Portsmouth in 2003-04.

    Huddersfield could become the first side to do within the same month.

    Klopp will be speaking to the media soon.

  17. Coutinho out of Liverpool game

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    The dark clouds look to have lifted ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s latest news conference but more injury woes with news that Philippe Coutinho is out of Huddersfield’s visit to Anfield tomorrow.

    I’m sure defence and goalkeeping issues will also be spoken about as well as Klopp’s long-term friendship with David Wagner as the two men go head-to-head.

    There’s bound to be a few questions about Rhian Brewster too as the Liverpool striker continues to capture the headlines as England Under-17s prepare for tomorrow’s World Cup Final.

  18. Post update

    Has...has goalkeeping legend Peter Schmeichel just challenged Rio Ferdinand to a fight?

  19. The south coast battle

    Brighton v Southampton (Sun, 13:30 GMT)

    It's been a slow and steady start to life in the Premier League for Brighton.

    They have 11 points from nine games - including three wins - and sit 12th in the table.

    The Seagulls have already won as many league games this calendar year as 2016-17 relegated sides Middlesbrough and Sunderland combined.

    Up next is Southampton, who are two places and one point above them. Saints have been victorious in five of their last seven competitive away trips to Brighton.

    Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino will be speaking to the media around 13:30 BST, while his opposite number Chris Hughton is on his way soon.

    West Ham United

    How is Slaven Bilic dealing with the rumours surrounding his future as West Ham manager?

    He explains: "I talk to the chairmen often. I am totally focused on the things I can influence which is the training, talking to the players, and the games. With that in your head you can improve and affect the things you can change."
