    Pep Guardiola has been speaking about Manchester City's opponents tomorrow, Fulham.

    The Cottagers have had three managers this season and are doomed to relegation.

    But Guardiola thinks they are better under their current boss, Scott Parker, than their position in the Premier League table suggests.

    “I saw the last three games, Leicester, Chelsea, Liverpool at home. Against tough opponents they were close.

    "They are trying to play like they did with Slavisia Jokanovic. They played well, they have good quality.

    "I don’t see the table what they have done, but he has done very well."

  5. Guardiola congratulates Solskjaer

    Fulham v Man City (Sat, 12:30GMT)

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola was asked about the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager.

    The pair met at a function in Manchester recently when it was clear there was a warmth between them.

    Guardiola said: "Congratulations to Solskjaer. It is amazing the job he has done, in terms of results and the way he plays.

    "I wish him all the best.”

  6. 'We need to do a lot to be in the top four'

    Arsenal v Newcastle (Mon, 20:00 BST)

    Arsenal

    Unai Emery on the importance of the remaining fixtures as Arsenal battle for a place back in the Champions League next season:

    "Each day, each match for us, for them, is going to be very important. We need to be competitive, play consistently and finish in the better position in the table.

    "Each match is now very important. I trust in us, but I know we need to do a lot to be in the top four."

  7. Injury news: Zaha and Wan-Bissaka hopeful to play

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

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson remains hopeful on the availability on Zaha and Wan-Bissaka: “I hope [they'll be fit]. They've been out training today, but it's touch and go. We'll have to see how they are overnight.”

    "Wilfried's a very good player.

    "All clubs rejoice in their good players. He's been very important during my two seasons here and he was key in the final few games last time”.

    “Bacary's back. Mamadou Sakho the only one we have out at the moment. It's a great compliment to our Sports Science dept. that we only have one player out at this stage in the season”

    Hodgson on securing Premier League safety: “We've got 33 points from 30 games, which I'm quite satisfied with. I think it could have been more, if you look back at the performances. We've had a lot of misfortune at home and could have done better. I would want more than 3 more points from our remaining 8 games. There's no point speculating how far you are ahead of this team, it's ifs & maybes. We've got a chance tomorrow against”.

  8. Pep Guardiola speaks out on combatting racism

    Fulham v Man City (Sat, 12:30GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola has not held back in his condemnation of the racist chanting experienced by the England players in Montenegro last week.

    The Manchester City boss says the problem of racism 'in Europe not football" is getting worse and that "is a concern".

    "We could walk off," he said.

    "Football is a strong weapon to defend the principles of humanity. I remember a long time ago, people said you cannot mix football and politics. That is not true. Human rights is anywhere.

    "I am not alone in the club. I am part of the club. It would have to involve the chairman, CEO and my captain, the team and players. If we all decide to do it, why not?

    "The situation only changes when you do something. When you do nothing it just stays the same. That is why when people like Raheem expressed what he did it is better for our society."

  9. 'We can compete against anyone' - Benitez

    Arsenal v Newcastle (Mon, 20:00 BST)

    Rafael Benitez expects Arsenal to "keep the ball" on Monday

    “Arsenal are doing really well, we know exactly what we have to do," he said.

    “Sometimes you need a bit of luck, but we can compete against anyone.

    "The team is quite solid and we have confidence in ourselves. We are doing a lot of things with more confidence – we are creating more chances and we have more of a threat in attack”

  10. Team news: Longstaff only player out

    Arsenal v Newcastle (Mon, 20:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    I'm flipping over from Merseyside to the north east now, as Rafael Benitez faces questions from the press.

    His Newcastle side play Arsenal on Monday.

    On his squad: “The international break is always quite complicated for us, especially at this stage of the season. A lot of the national teams are playing for something and we have some knocks and little things, but Sean Longstaff is the only player injured at the moment”.

    On players returning: “When a player returns (from international duty) on a Thursday evening, it is quite difficult to get them ready for a game on a Saturday. But this game we have on Monday, so we have time”.

    Rafa on the head injury picked up by Fabian Schär on international duty: “We take these things very, very seriously. He had a test over there and another test here this morning. He is fine and training lightly with the team”.

  11. Silva hits out at Colombia

    West Ham v Everton (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

    Everton boss Marco Silva has criticised Colombia for ignoring his club's advice on centre-back Yerry Mina, who returned from international duty with an injury.

    "We knew it could be a risk for him to play the two matches," Silva said.

    "We communicated this to them but we cannot control their decisions.

    "They decided and unfortunately for us and for Yerry he took the injury."

    Mina joined Everton from Barcelona in August and has been restricted to nine league starts for the Merseyside club due to a persistent foot injury.

    "He's not out for the season," Silva added. "Let's see how many weeks it will be but I expect Mina... to be playing in a blue shirt again before the end of the season."

    Yerry MIna
  12. Post update

    That's your lot from Maurizio Sarri, now over to Everton manager Marco Silva.

    Who isn't happy with Columbia....

  13. Will Hudson-Odoi stay at Chelsea beyond this season?

    Cardiff v Chelsea (Sun,14:05 BST)

    Chelsea

    Maurizio Sarri was also asked whether he thought Callum Hudson-Odoi would remain at Chelsea after further speculation linking him with top European clubs since his England debut.

    The 18-year-old, whose contract runs out in the summer of 2020, handed in a transfer request in January after Bayern Munich bid £35m for him, but the club maintain they want him to stay.

    Asked if the winger will remain at Stamford Bridge next season, Sarri said: "I think so. I think so. I'm not able to say he's going to sign a contract or not, but I think he will stay here with us in every case."

  14. Hudson-Odoi can be one of most important players in Europe

    Cardiff v Chelsea (Sun, 14:05 BST)

    There has been plenty of debate about why Maurizio Sarri is yet to start Callum Hudson-Odoi in a Premier League game, especially as he has now made his England debut and performed well.

    Asked if he was now tempted to start him, the Italian said: "We have to play eight matches in 28 days so I'm sure he will start in two or three matches. Matches in the Premier League, Europa League, FA Cup, for me it’s the same, there is no difference.

    "Probably in the near future he will start in 75-80% of games. He is doing very well because the potential is very high and I don’t want him to stop improving. He can become one of the most important players in Europe. He has to improve more."

  15. 'Racism is a big problem' - Sarri

    Cardiff v Chelsea (Sun, 14:05 BST)

    Chelsea

    Asked if he had spoken to Callum Hudson-Odoi after he racially abused twice in 11 days for his club and on his full England debut, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said: "Not for the moment. I don’t like to speak to him about this problem, because unfortunately I cannot solve it.

    "In every country there are some stupid people I think. It’s a big problem I think we need to do something different. Probably it's right to stop the match for 10 minutes at the first situation.

    "We need a rule. For the Premier League but all the championships and all football. A rule that can permit us to stop the match."

    BBC Sport

    Maurizio Sarri was expectedly peppered with questions about Callum Hudson-Odoi, after the 18-year-old made his full England debut against Montenegro, so much so that the press officer had to call an end to them.

    But the Italian revealed plenty, including whether he had spoken to the teenager after being racially abused, if he was tempted to start him in a Premier League game and whether he would stay at the end of the season.

  20. Pep would back racism walk-off

    Fulham v Man City (Sat, 12:30GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has spoken out very strongly on the racism issue.

    He says the scourge of racism is growing in Europe 'not just in football' and that he would be willing to take his team off the field 'if he CEO and captain agree'.

    "We could do that," he said. "Football is a powerful weapon."
