  3. Liverpool larking about

    Liverpool appear in very good spirits as they were pictured training in Italy ahead of their march with Napoli.

  5. 'Everyone is going in the same direction' - Fellaini

    Man Utd 0-0 Valencia

    Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini is the latest player to come out in support of under-fire boss Jose Mourinho.

    He follows Antonio Valencia, who tweeted that he is "fully supportive of the manager and my team-mates" after 'liking' an Instagram post which called for Mourinho to be sacked in the caption.

    Fellaini insisted the whole dressing room was behind the manager. "Everyone is going in the same direction to try to improve and to do better," he added.

    Pulkit: My favourite memory is of the self proclaimed "one of the best defenders in the world" . The stoppage time header from the great Dejan Lovren against Dortmund at Anfield in the Europa league quarter final few years back. His best moment in a Liverpool jersey.

  7. Hunt for cabbage-throwing fan

    in case you missed it before, Steve Bruce had a cabbage thrown at him from the stand at Villa park last night.

    His side blew a 2-0 lead to end up drawing 3-3 with Preston North End

    Villa also missed an injury-time penalty.

    It has now been confirmed West Midlands Police are investigating the incident.

    The club are 12th in the league table and have won one of their past 10 games in all competitions.

  9. Are United players trying hard enough?

    Man Utd 0-0 Valencia

    It all started so promisingly last night.

    Fans at Old Trafford may have been heartened to see the players huddled like this before kick-off. But what unfolded on the pitch wasn't quite enough to get them cheering, with some fans even booing at the final whistle.

    And Jose Mourinho criticised the 'technical quality' of his players in his post-match press conference.

    He said: "The players tried. They raised the level of their efforts.

    "They raised the level of their intensity.

    "We tried to play but in some crucial positions in the building up phase, we don't have the technical quality to build from the back."

    The pockets of boos at the end of the game may suggest the fans don't think the players are trying hard enough...

    Chris Collins: I remember when we lost or drew under Fergie, we would always batter the door until the final whistle. Fergie always said that we never lost a game, we just ran out of time. We could have played for four hours last night and not come close to scoring.

    Steve Wood: Best memory December 1980, FA Cup 2nd round the mighty Maidstone United against Gillingham. Two games and nothing to split the teams. The second replay at Gillingham. Frankie Ovard for the Stones as we ran our eventual 2 0 winners. For a 15 year old this was pure joy.

    I'm going to let that one slip through Steve, even though December isn't in October.

    Unless I've been on this live text so long and been enjoying it so much, it is actually almost Christmas Day...

  11. 'This is a good time to face Barcelona'

    Tottenham v Barcelona (20:00 BST)

    Guillem Balague

    Spanish football journalist on BBC Sport

    In his latest column, Spanish football writer Guillem Balague has taken a look at Tottenham's chances against Barcelona in the Champions League tonight:

    "Few people know better than Mauricio Pochettino that there is never a 'good' time to face Barcelona.

    Even so, the Catalans' current form suggests the timing of Wednesday's Champions League group match is as good as it's ever going to get for the Tottenham boss."

    Graeme Horner: Jose doesn't mind a bit of a misery does he, but he should be stopped from imposing his joyless brand of football on so many United fans who rely on the football to raise their spirits.

  17. Memphis music

    Former Manchester United forward Memphis Depay has released a single, after going "back to his roots."

    The 24-year-old was a second half substitute for Lyon in their Champions League game last night, a game they drew 2-2 with Shakhtar Donetsk.
