  1. Bye for now

    OK folks, that's it for a busy day of Premier League previews and transfer news. Here are all the done deals so far and for today's transfer gossip click here.

    Do join us tomorrow for live text commentary on the eight Premier League games - yep, count 'em!

    Until then I've leave you with today's biggest football stories:

  2. 'Some youngsters' will face Burton

    Huddersfield v Man City (Sun, 13:30 GMT)

    Manchester City

    After Sunday's game, City play the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Burton on Wednesday. With City leading 9-0 from the first leg, boss Pep Guardiola had planned to field a youthful team.

    That was complicated this week when it was announced that City's Under-21s would have to play their Checkatrade Trophy quarter-final at Sunderland on Tuesday, but Guardiola still intends to field some youngsters.

    "Some young players are going to play with us," he said. "The first team is most important team, after that the second and third team.

    "The first team asks or demands something - the club is always ready to provide what we need.

    "Of course we'll use a few players from the second team for the semi-final of the Carabao Cup, but I don't know how many as most of the players need rest and they cannot play both."

  3. Kompany & Mendy close to return

    Huddersfield v Man City (Sun, 13:30 GMT)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City have no fresh injuries or suspensions before Sunday's trip to bottom side Huddersfield.

    Captain Vincent Kompany is close to returning after a muscular problem and left-back Benjamin Mendy, out since November with a knee injury, could also be back in action in the coming weeks.

    Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (Achilles) is the only other major absentee.

  4. Burnley 'lose' record after Hendrick credited with goal


    Fulham lost 2-1 at Burnley last Saturday and initially both the hosts' goals were recorded as own goals.

    But the Clarets have now 'lost' a 16-year record as midfielder Jeff Hendrick has been credited with the equaliser.

    Sean Dyche's men thought they had become the first Premier League team since 2003 to score two goals without registering a shot on target.

  5. For how long can Calum Chambers hold his breath?

    Arsenal head coach Unai Emery could welcome Mesut Ozil back into his squad for tomorrow's London derby.

    The German midfielder was dropped for last weekend's 1-0 defeat at West Ham but could feature at Emirates Stadium this time around.

    The Gunners have no fresh injury concerns heading into the game with Rob Holding (knee), Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Danny Welbeck (both ankle) still missing.

    BBC Sport

    Chelsea are in talks with Callum Hudson-Odoi about a new contract.

    Boss Maurizio Sarri has been critical of Bayern Munich after they went on the record about wanting to sign the 18-year-old winger.

    Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said the German club "really want to sign him".

    "It's not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea," said Sarri.

  8. Arnautovic not in Hammers' squad

    Bournemouth v West Ham (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Marko Arnautovic has been left out of West Ham's squad for Saturday's Premier League match against Bournemouth.

    The 29-year-old Austria forward has been the subject of a £35m bid from a club in China, and his brother has said he wants to leave.

    West Ham, who are not commenting on Arnautovic's omission, have previously stated the player is not for sale.

    But manager Manuel Pellegrini said on Thursday that Arnautovic could leave if it was "a good deal for both parties".

  9. Dier could be involved for Spurs

    Fulham v Tottenham (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham are without Harry Kane (ankle) and Moussa Sissoko (groin) after both were injured against Manchester United last Sunday. They are out for two months and two weeks, respectively.

    Son Heung-min is on international duty with South Korea at the Asian Cup, Lucas Moura is back training on grass but his knee injury will keep him out, while Eric Dier (appendicitis) could be involved in the squad.

    SMS Message: Spurs fan - I’d quite like Jay Rodriguez from Rog

    Tayo: Pochettino needs to be under the lights! If we all agree he has the best striker in the league, 2 of the best DEFs and at least three tier 1/2 midfielders - what exactly is his excuse for winning nothing in his time at Spurs? Expectations or not.

  11. Babel in Cottagers' squad

    Fulham v Tottenham (Sun, 16:00 GMT)


    Former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel will be added to the Fulham squad for the visit of Tottenham.

    The 32-year-old Dutchman is back in the Premier League after moving to Craven Cottage from Besiktas.

    Alfie Mawson and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa are still out injured for the Cottagers.

  12. Whatever Jamie Vardy can do...


    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy decided to turn up for training in fancy dress yesterday (see 07:22 entry), but ALL the Bristol Ladies team recently played in fancy dress to promote the FA People's Cup...

    Leicester City

    Leicester defender Jonny Evans has made a rapid recovery from a toe problem and is fit for the Foxes.

    Evans suffered the injury ahead of last week's defeat to Southampton and was expected to be missing until the end of February.

    Daniel Amartey is a long-term absentee with a broken ankle he suffered in October.

  14. 'We can cope with Boly absence' - Nuno

    Wolves v Leicester (Sat, 12:30 GMT)


    Manager Nuno Espirito Santo is confident Wolves can pull together without defender Willy Boly, who starts a three-match ban following a red card in the defeat at Manchester City on Monday night.

    "What I find, when a squad is short of player numbers, is they have to have the mentality to cope with those kinds of moments - and we have it," he said.

    Kayleigh Millen: I'd love Everton to sign an out-an-out striker. I personally think Callum Wilson would be a good fit - I think a £70million move to Chelsea (as I've heard rumoured) may be a bit too ambitious - come to Goodison instead! Or Rashford on loan til the summer!

    Haha...good luck with that, Kayleigh!

  16. Nuno to decide on Jimenez in the summer

    Wolves v Leicester (Sat, 12:30 GMT)


    Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has expressed his desire to make his loan move from Benfica into a permanent deal in the summer.

    The 27-year-old Mexico international has scored six Premier League goals so far this season.

    Manager Nuno Espirito Santo said: "We have to make a decision when we have to make it - and that moment is the end of the season.

    "For now, Raul is doing very well, and he has to maintain these levels of intensity, the high standards that he puts himself in every training session and every game for him to have good performances in the day of the competitions."

  17. Wolves won't hurry January signings

    Wolves v Leicester (Sat, 12:30 GMT)


    Manager Nuno Espirito Santo has said Wolves will not be rushed into making a January signing.

    The Molineux club have found themselves linked with the likes of striker Tammy Abraham, as well as Stoke's Austrian full-back Moritz Bauer, Birmingham forward Che Adams and Sparta Prague frontman Benjamin Tetteh.

    But Nuno said: "It doesn't make sense to bring someone in that you don't find different to what you already have.

    "The other point is knowing what you sometimes want, or the profile you want, is not available in the transfer window because they are doing well in other teams and they don't want to sell.

    "It's the same as us. If someone comes knocking on my door and asks for some kind of player, the answer will be 'no', because we are building, we are trying to maintain the core, and other teams have the same approach, so it becomes very hard to make deals during this transfer window.

    "The way we work is clear; myself, my team and my players are only focused on the game and the club is prepared to act if we think that's the best decision we have."

  18. No rush on professional contract for Hoever

    Liverpool v Crystal Palace (Sat, 15:00 GMT)


    Pep Guardiola isn't the only one celebrating their birthday today...Liverpool youngster Ki-Jana Hoever has turned 17.

    The Dutch youth international, who became the third-youngest player in the club's history when he made his debut in the FA Cup defeat at Wolves, can now sign a professional contract, although Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said it was not their immediate priority.

    "He can sign professional now. If you turn 17, life should be really cool, yeah?" he said. "There are big steps to make for all of these boys.

    "Ki-Jana will be fine, he is really happy in the moment, we showed him where he will be in the future, now he has to make all the steps alone, but supported by us.

    "Contracts are no concern in this moment; there were plenty of reasons for him to join us. The boys are here, and now we work with them."

    Jurgen Klopp
  19. Dawn of a dynasty for the Reds?

    Liverpool v Crystal Palace (Sat, 15:00 GMT)


    Manager Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool have built a platform for future success, with Andy Robertson having followed Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson in signing a new long-term deal.

    "In general it's always a good sign to have the opportunity to extend contracts early," said Klopp. "If we can keep these boys together, we are in the middle of our development, so it's good news for Liverpool.

    "These 17-18 players plus the really young boys, that's the squad of the future. It should be like this. It's investment, the club gave us the opportunity to do it. It's really nice.

    "Progress is something everybody should expect. The club gave us fantastic opportunity to bring in outstanding players, to keep outstanding players. My job is to make sure we perform on the pitch.

    "Where will we be in two or three years? I have no idea, but the age group is good. This season will not finish our development."

  20. Palace close to Perri loan

    Liverpool v Crystal Palace (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Crystal Palace

    Palace are close to concluding the loan arrival of 21-year-old Brazilian keeper Lucas Perri from Sao Paulo.

    But manager Roy Hodgson insists the deal is unrelated to the injuries to Vicente Guaita and Wayne Hennessey.

    The former Liverpool and England boss also confirmed the Eagles still hope to recruit a new striker and midfielder.
