  2. Millwall charged by FA

    Millwall have been charged by the Football Association after some fans allegedly chanted racist language during the FA Cup fourth-round win over Everton in January.

    Supporters could be heard using a racist term that is derogatory to the Pakistani community during the game.

    The FA says Millwall have been charged with a breach of rule E20.

    "It is alleged the club failed to ensure its spectators conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from using abusive and/or insulting words, which included a reference to race and/or ethnic origin, during the Emirates FA Cup tie against Everton on 26 January 2019," said a statement.

  3. 'Hodgson has done fantastic things' - Puel

    Leicester v Crystal Palace (Sat, 17:30)

    Leicester City

    This weekend, Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson will become the oldest manager to manage a Premier League game.

    “It is fantastic. I don’t know if I would like to manage a club at this age," said Puel.

    “He has a long career and is a nice man, a great manager. He has done fantastic things and congratulations for his career and for the man he is.”

    Puel on Youri Tielemans: “I think Youri is not a defensive midfielder. He is a midfielder who can be box-to-box.

    "He has a good shot, he can score, he can give assists and a good influence on the game.”

  4. 'Gray lacks end product at the moment but he has all the qualities for the future.

    Leicester v Crystal Palace (Sat, 17:30)

    Leicester City

    On experimenting with Demarai Gray's position: “It was a good opportunity to see Dimi. I was pleased with his performance and if for example, Jamie [Vardy] scored when he came on, it’s perhaps because Dimi tired out the defence.

    “He has fantastic starts, he can make the difference with good penetration and now he needs to learn to have calm, to have the right touch, to finish. He does not have the end product at the moment but he has all the qualities for the future.

    “He needs to have the clinical edge because a striker or winger needs to score.”

  5. 'We need to find a clinical edge and go up the table'

    Puel on current form: “We had a lot of chances in our last games against Liverpool, Man Utd and Tottenham. I was pleased with our performances, but we need to find a clinical edge.”

    On upcoming fixtures: “We need points. We have two home games and it will be important to find results for our confidence and to go up the table.”

    Peter Schmeichel also said claimed the Foxes don't have a manager who can lead them up the table.

    “After, I don’t know Peter. I don’t want to make other comments about this.”

    Claude Puel

    “He is happy with Leicester and this is the most important thing.”

    Newcastle are only a point above the drop zone and Siewert knows what his side must do against Rafa Benitez's side.

    "We are focused on playing our style against Newcastle." he says.

    “We had a very good game against Arsenal but I didn’t like the result," he goes on.

    “It’s great that Karlan Grant scored and it has given him confidence.

    "You have to judge each game separately. This is a new game but I saw progress."

    Jan Siewert
  15. 'We will keep fighting'

    Newcastle v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    They are six points adrift of second from bottom Fulham and 14 points from safety but head coach Jan Siewert, who has been up for his pre-game briefing ahead of the trip to Newcastle, is not giving up hope

    “We have 12 games left and in each game there’s a chance," says the German.

    "We take each game separately. We aren’t satisfied with our situation but we are excited for our next game. As long as its mathematically possible, we will fight for it. We will keep the fighting spirit."

    "He’s good. He’s very good. I think we need to assess him. One training session more and then decide, but I think he’s doing well and I’m happy for him.

    "Maybe he's going to be available to be part of the squad. We all know that Harry is an animal and wants to be ready as soon as possible.

    "The issue that he suffered is tough to recover from, you can't push and push. We are so happy that the last 10 days have been fantastic and being available again will be a massive impact for all of us."
