  1. Thanks and goodbye

    Ok, that's your lot for today. Don't forget you can watch all the goals from the FA Cup fifth round across the BBC this weekend, with Chelsea's tie against Manchester United live on BBC One on Monday as is Crystal Palace's trip to Doncaster Rovers on Sunday.

    In the meantime, here are the main lines from today's news conferences.

    • Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer says Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard could be out for two to three weeks after coming off in the midweek defeat by Paris St-Germain.
    • Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola expects his players to suffer when they travel to League Two Newport County on Saturday.
    • And Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson does not know if Wilfried Zaha will be available for their trip to Doncaster Rovers as they await an appeal to the additional one-match ban he received for being sent off for improper conduct at Southampton.
  2. 'Hudson-Odoi is getting opportunities'

    Callum Hudson-Odoi

    With Chelsea struggling, Gianfranco Zola was also asked why Callum Hudson-Odoi has not been getting more opportunities.

    But Zola says the teenager "is always on the edge of the team" and points out there are very few 18-year-olds as involved in a top team as he is.

    Hudson-Odoi came on for the last six minutes against Malmo, has not started a game since the transfer window closed and is yet to start a Premier League match.

  3. 'We need to be consistent' - Zola

    Gianfranco Zola

    Gianfranco Zola has also acknowledged how crucial a period it is for Chelsea over the next few weeks, with manager Maurizio Sarri's job reportedly under threat.

    After the Blues face Manchester United in the FA Cup on Monday, they then host Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday before facing Manchester City in the EFL Cup final the following Sunday, which will be two weeks after their 6-0 mauling at the Etihad.

    "It's an important moment, it's very challenging," said Zola. "The key will be to face each task by only thinking about that task.

    "Nobody is pleased when you lose games the way we have recently. The player, coaches and everyone knows it's a moment when results alternate and this is something we don't like.

    "We need to be consistent. We all know it's very important to understand the situation and we are working on it."

  4. Loftus-Cheek 'may be available' for FA Cup tie

    Wayne Hennessey

    Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is to contest an FA charge for making an alleged Nazi salute during a meal with team-mates.

    The Wales international, 32, was given until 1600 today to respond to the charge.

    A picture of Hennessey with his right arm in the air and his left hand under his nose was posted on Instagram by Palace midfielder Max Meyer, who is German, after the FA Cup third round win over Grimsby.

    Hennessey, who is in contention to play in Palace’s FA Cup fifth round tie at Doncaster on Sunday, has previously said any resemblance to the Nazi gesture was "absolutely coincidental".

  6. 'A moment of football history'

    LGBT kit

    The Newpor County boss says beating Manchester City would be the "biggest shock in FA Cup history", but there is another bit of history being made over at non-league Altrincham.

    They will wear a kit which sports the LGBT flag. Bill Waterson described it as "a big statement" and "a small moment of football history".

    Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo takes his side back to Ashton Gate for the first time since he was sent off in a tempestuous Championship game in December 2017.

    Wolves and Bristol City both had a man dismissed and Santo was sent to the stands before he celebrated wildly at the final whistle following a 90th-minute Ryan Bennett winner.

    "The day was so emotional," Santo says. "I went to the stand and there you can't really help the team. I felt joy at the end, and I couldn't contain myself."

    He added: "We don't care how many top six sides are left in the FA Cup. Bristol City are a good team and we know what happened last season. We know how tough it will be."

  9. 'Martial and Lingard injuries could open door for youngsters'

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains in positive mood despite facing the toughest spell of his stewardship of Manchester United so far.

    He hinted he has got the reaction he wanted from the players in training after a first loss since he took charge, saying "he hates losing, and "it seems the players hate losing."

    A bigger blow is the loss of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard to muscle injures, with the Norwegian confirming the pair face two to three weeks out.

    That could mean a chance for Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku who he says have got different skill-sets, or for youngsters like Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes, who Solskjaer confirmed have been training with the team all week.

    Asked about the positive words from United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, who said "Ole has made a fantastic start reviving the performance of team," the Norwegian replied: "It's always nice to hear those words.

    "We speak almost daily, if we don't speak we keep in touch with all these new gadgets nowadays."

    "We won't panic because we've lost a game — our mindset won't change at all. We need to keep working the way we want to play and they way we approach games will always be in an attacking, positive frame of mind."

    "It’d mean everything for us if we could get a win on Sunday, it doesn’t matter who you play you have to put on a great performance, but first and foremost, we just want to enjoy the occasion.

    "We’re coming up against an experienced manager in Roy Hodgson, he’s someone I’ve looked up to as a young manager, but I think him and his side know they’re going to be in a game when it gets underway."

  16. Are Man City ready for Rodney Parade?

    Newport v Man City (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    The big question is whether Manchester City are ready for Rodney Parade?

    Our man Michael Pearlman has been assessing what the Premier League champions can expect when they travel to Newport County on Saturday.

    The League Two side have already beaten Leicester and Middlesbrough in the FA Cup there this season.

    If you are just joining us, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he expects his side to "suffer" when they face League Two side Newport County in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday.

    City lost to Wigan at the same stage of the competition last season.

    He said: "We are going to suffer because they are taller and stronger than us. In some areas they will be better than us.

    "They have done incredibly well in this competition. What they do they do really well. We have watched many games to see what they do."

  18. Why the fuss?

    Newport v Man City (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    If you're wondering why there's a bit of fuss about the playing surface at Newport County, it's largely because Newport Gwent Dragons play rugby there.

    So it's been hacked up for several years. Will it be the foundation for a cup upset?

    A muddy pitch

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola sounds like he loved watching the odd mud bath encounter: "I have seen vintage games here in the 70s and 80s and all the pitches were bad. Now, most of the pitches are perfect. Newport own their stadium and can play how they want."
