    West Ham v Arsenal (20:00 GMT)

    West Ham's only win in the past 19 competitive meetings came at the Emirates Stadium in August 2015 (D3, L15).

    This will be an unprecedented 42nd consecutive Premier League matchday in which a team led by David Moyes has started in the relegation zone.

    Arsenal have won just two of their eight top-flight away matches this season.

    West Ham forward Javier Hernandez was an unused substitute at the weekend but could feature after five weeks out with a hamstring injury.

    Cheikhou Kouyate could return after a hamstring problem while Edimilson Fernandes's ankle will be assessed.

    Tottenham v Brighton (20:00 GMT)

    Tottenham have won four of their last five games against Brighton in all competitions but the Seagulls won 2-1 in the most recent league meeting in 1983 – but they were still relegated from Division One that season.

    Mauricio Pochettino's side have dropped nine points in their first eight Premier League games at Wembley this season, as many as in their last 23 league games at White Hart Lane.

    Brighton manager Chris Hughton made 398 appearances for Tottenham between 1979 and 1990, winning the FA Cup in 1981 and 1982, and the UEFA Cup in 1984.

    Tottenham v Brighton (20:00 GMT)

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says midfielder Erik Lamela could make his first start in over a year after returning from a hip problem.

    Davinson Sanchez is suspended while long-term absentees Toby Alderweireld and Victor Wanyama remain sidelined.

    Brighton have no fresh injury problems; Steve Sidwell, who is still out with a back problem, is their only absentee.

    Winger Anthony Knockaert could be recalled after being left out of the side that lost to Huddersfield.

    Manchester United v Bournemouth (20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United have won five of their six home games against Bournemouth, with the exception being a 1-1 draw in March last season.

    Bournemouth are one of four clubs that Jose Mourinho has faced more than once at home in the league but not beaten (D1, L1). He has drawn both home games against Burnley, Genoa and Roma.

    Jermain Defoe has failed to score in his last 10 league appearances at Old Trafford since providing the winning goal for West Ham on his first top-flight visit to the stadium in December 2001.

    Paul Pogba
  7. Wednesday's football

    Manchester United v Bournemouth (20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United will again be without midfielder Paul Pogba, who is serving the second of a three-match ban.

    Marouane Fellaini could return from a knee injury, while Marcos Rojo will be assessed after suffering a head injury in the Manchester derby defeat.

    Bournemouth defender Adam Smith is available after missing the draw with Crystal Palace because of suspension.

    Adam Federici, Brad Smith and Tyrone Mings all remain sidelined with knee, back and hip injuries respectively.

    Liverpool v West Brom (20:00 GMT)

    Liverpool are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games against West Brom

    West Brom are winless in 14 league games since August, failing to score in half of those matches (D7, L7). This is their longest run without a top-fight victory since a 16-match streak between February 2006 and August 2008.

  10. Wednesday's football

    Liverpool v West Brom (20:00 GMT)

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is expected to recall Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, who were both substitutes against Everton on Sunday.

    Adam Lallana is fit but unlikely to feature as he is eased back after injury, while defenders Joel Matip and Alberto Moreno remain sidelined.

    West Brom wingers Matt Phillips and Nacer Chadli remain doubts with respective hamstring and hip problems.

    Craig Dawson, Gareth Barry and James Morrison are still unavailable.

    Swansea v Manchester City (19:45 GMT)

    Manchester City have set an English top-flight record of 14 successive league wins within a single season. It is also equal with Arsenal's Premier League record run, set between February and August 2002.

    City have won 12 and lost only one of their last 15 matches between the clubs in all competitions.

    Swansea have the fewest points (7) and goals (5) at home in the Premier League this season.

    Swansea are assessing a muscle injury suffered by Wayne Routledge on Saturday in just his second start of the season.

    Federico Fernandez is amongst the players pushing for a recall after returning to the bench at the weekend.

    Manchester City central defender Vincent Kompany has a muscular injury and won't face Swansea, while Benjamin Mendy and John Stones remain out.

    Forward Sergio Aguero is likely to be recalled as manager Pep Guardiola rotates his squad.

    Southampton v Leicester (19:45 GMT)

    Southampton have only won one of their last seven league matches, drawing three and losing three.

    Leicester have earned 17 points from eight league games since Craig Shakespeare was sacked. Only Manchester City and Chelsea have fared better over the same period.

    Jamie Vardy needs one goal to become the first Leicester player to reach 50 in the Premier League.

    Southampton v Leicester (19:45 GMT)

    Southampton full-back Cedric Soares could return from the hamstring injury that caused him to miss Sunday's draw with Arsenal.

    Manager Mauricio Pellegrino has no fresh injury concerns.

    Leicester manager Claude Puel will have Shinji Okazaki available, despite the Japan international suffering a head injury against Newcastle.

    Robert Huth and Matty James remain long-term absentees with respective ankle and Achilles injuries.

  16. Ashley close to deal to sell

    Off the field and Newcastle's owner Mike Ashley is close to reaching an agreement with British businesswoman Amanda Staveley over the sale of the Premier League club.

    The investment firm run by Staveley- PCP Capital Partners - has put forward an offer of £300m, BBC Newcastle understands.

    Ashley said on 16 October he wanted to sell after 10 years in charge.

    Any takeover deal would not be completed immediately as Premier League approval takes 30 days.

    Newcastle v Everton (19:45 GMT)

    Everton are unbeaten in the Premier League under Sam Allardyce, winning one and drawing the other.

    Allardyce spent eight months in charge of Newcastle between May 2007 and January 2008. He won eight and lost 10 of his 24 games.

    Newcastle have lost six of their last seven matches against Everton, with the exception being a 3-2 victory at St. James' Park in December 2014.

    Newcastle v Everton (19:45 GMT)

    And so, onto Wednesday's football and Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles is set to make his first start since early November after being among the substitutes at the weekend.

    Paul Dummett remains sidelined with a long-standing hamstring injury.

    Everton defenders Phil Jagielka and Michael Keane are both fit to start but Leighton Baines remains one of several absentees.

    Yannick Bolasie made his return after more than a year out in an under-23s match on Monday but will not be risked.

  20. Aubameyang puts car up for sale

    Before we get started, have you got £250,000 to spare?

    If so, we have just the gift for you to splash the cash on.

    According to the Sun, Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has put his Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 up for sale.

    However, the car, dubbed the Batmobile, will need a bit of work in order to get rid of the personalised logo.
