  2. Baggies team news

    Liverpool v West Brom (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    West Bromwich Albion

    And here's some team news from Baggies boss Alan Pardew:

    "Gareth Barry isn’t available tomorrow. We will have to wait and see about Nacer Chadli and Matty [Phillips]. James Morrison won’t play against Liverpool."

    Aaaaaaand finally, it's time for Pards.

    His men are up against Liverpool on Wednesday. Here's his expert view on BBC African Footballer of the Year (and general very good footballer) Mo Salah:

    "I always thought Mo Salah could go to the top. He’s top scorer in the Premier League and that’s a great achievement for someone who plays out wide.

    "Liverpool is a game as players that you should look forward to. We are in a situation where we need points. We need to fight to get something out of the game."

  4. 'It's not rocket science'

    Newcastle v Everton (Weds, 19:45 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    Rafael Benitez

    Newcastle have dropped dramatically in the PL table having lost six out of the last seven league games.

    Here's more from Rafa:

    "The festive period is always crucial. But it will be crucial in January, in April. Every game is important. We have to go and try to get three points in the next game.

    "Hopefully we will win and things will be easier. We don’t need to think about a run of games, losing or winning. We concentrate on the next one and see after that.

    "Some games we are the youngest team in the Premier League. We have to learn quickly. This team is working very hard. Little things we have to improve and we will be stronger."

    "We know our job. Everyone has an opinion. It’s not rocket science - we need players in some positions. If we can, fine, if not, we will have to work harder."

  5. Post update

    Newcastle v Everton (Weds, 19:45 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle team news.

    Here's Rafa Benitez: "Jamaal Lascelles was nearly there (on Saturday). Having players with character and personality when things aren't going wrong is good. I haven’t picked the team yet.

    "Paul Dummett is getting better but still we have to wait. If everybody is available, hopefully we can be as solid as we were earlier in the season."

  6. Moyesey on Ramsey

    West Ham v Arsenal (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    David Moyes has been quite revealing in his news conference.

    "I really like Aaron Ramsey," said the new West Ham boss.

    "I tried to sign him at Everton before he went to Arsenal. He turned out to be a terrific player. Jack Wilshere is also an excellent footballer.

    "I'm not an expert on Arsenal. I couldn't tell you whether they are better with Ramsey or Jack Wilshere but I think whoever they play they have got good players."

  7. Hart break?

    West Ham v Arsenal (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    England number one Joe Hart has fallen out of favour at West Ham recently. He was dropped for the win over Chelsea.

    This is David Moyes' take on the goalkeeping situation.

    "Joe has been number one throughout his career," said the Hammers boss.

    "Adrian went in goal and played well. Joe will give Adrian all the respect from that position.

    "He’s good in the dressing room for us. He will play a lot of games between and the end of the season."

  8. Pep's happy with celebrations

    Swansea v Man City (Wed, 19:45 GMT)

    BBC Sport at the Etihad Campus

    Pep Guardiola remains happy with his side's celebrations at Old Trafford on Sunday and is adamant Manchester City did nothing wrong.

    However, as for the cut Mikel Arteta sustained in the melee that followed, the milk that was thrown at Jose Mourinho and the general disorder that lasted for around two minutes, Guardiola preferred to detail his information to the Football Association rather than the media.

    It is fair to assume, however, he may not be particularly impressed with Jose Mourinho's assessment of his behaviour.

  9. 'That is done'

    Manchester United v Bournemouth (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    More from Jose Mourinho, who reeeeaaaaaaallllly didn't want to talk about milk/water bottle/tunnel gate.

    "This press conference is pre-Bournemouth, not post-Man City. That is done," he said.

    "When you lose, you have a little bit more desire to win. Nobody likes to lose once, nobody ever wants to lose twice. That is the same for every team in the world. You have that little bit extra to give.

    "The motivation is based on trying to win all the time. We go match after match. We try to win and get maximum points. We have to try."

  10. Breaking'A question of diversity'

    Manchester United v Bournemouth (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Jose Mourinho on Pep Guardiola's response to the tunnel bust-up: “He says he says, I'm not here to comment on his words the only thing I can say is that for me was just a question of diversity. Diversity in behaviours, diversity in education, just that and nothing more."

  11. Rojo injury latest

    Manchester United v Bournemouth (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Before we talk tunnel bust-up, Jose Mourinho has discussed Marcos Rojo's head injury, which he sustained against Manchester City at the weekend.

    "He's a brave guy. I don't know - let's see if he can be ready for the match. but if he's not ready, we have other alternatives to play," said the Man Utd boss.

  12. Post update

    Yeah, the City boss said his players were just celebrating their win, Jose.

    Interesting to find out how they celebrated...

    Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho coming up very soon...

  13. 'When you win you celebrate'

    Swansea v Man City (Weds, 19:45 GMT)

    Manchester City

    Here's more from City boss Pep Guardiola on 'the celebrations' after Sunday's win against Manchester United.

    "All the players fought to win the game. After the game the players shook hands. Some City players went to celebrate with the fans and I encouraged the players to celebrate in the changing room. When you lose you accept it and when you win you celebrate. We celebrated in Napoli when we qualified for the next stage in the Champions League.

    "What happened happened and hopefully it won't happen again. We will make statement to FA. I am not going to comment about that."

    Any comment on Jose Mourinho coming into the room?

    "I can't comment."

    Were the celebrations too much?

    "Nope. We just won a derby against out rivals. When United win a derby they celebrate. When Arsenal win against United they celebrate it."

  14. Team news from West Ham

    West Ham v Arsenal (Weds, 20:00 GMT)

    West Ham United

    Look out, here's David Moyes with some West Ham team news.

    "Cheik Kouyate has returned to training a little bit so we're hoping to get him back quite quickly.

    "Chicharito and Andy Carroll were back on the bench, but James Collins is not ready.

    "We're pretty much as we were, aside from Edi Fernandes hurting his ankle in training."

  20. What will Pep say

    Swansea v Man City (Wed, 19:45GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    So, I am in situ at the City Football Academy for Pep Guardiola's pre-match press conference.

    It is fair to assume, tomorrow's trip to Swansea will not be top of the list of questions.

    Journalists will want to know what happened after the game on Sunday.

    Will Pep be willing to talk about it, or will the questions have to be inventive.

    We will find out at 13:30GMT.
