    Man Utd v West Ham (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Manchester United

    If you missed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's news conference earlier on, the Manchester United manager was asked about the future of midfielder Ander Herrera.

    In short, he said his future was unresolved and even that doubts about where he went next could have played a part in his current injury.

    You can watch his answers below.

  3. We can repeat 2014 triumph - Azpilicueta

    Liverpool v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)


    Skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has backed Chelsea to wreck Liverpool's Premier League title chances for the second time in five years.

    The Blues' 2-0 win at Anfield in April 2014 derailed Liverpool's title tilt, paving the way for Manchester City to snatch the league crown.

    "It was a few years ago, but we went there and they had the party ready because they were smashing every team at Anfield," said Azpilicueta.

    "It's not about frustrating Liverpool, it's about playing our game. We know they are fighting for the title but for us every point is very important for the top four. We need to keep the solidity that we've shown in the last games, and I think we've proved ourselves already this season when we won (2-1) in the League Cup (in August)."

  4. Klopp condemns 'disgusting' Salah video

    Liverpool v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)


    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has condemned the racist chanting aimed at Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

    "It's disgusting. It's another example of something which should not happen. We should not see it as a Chelsea or Liverpool thing," Klopp said.

    "If you do something like that you should not be able to enter a stadium again, from my point of view, for life.

    "Football has a strong voice, and we have to use that voice and show that we all think the same. Things like this should not be allowed to happen again."

  5. Tomkins to miss rest of season

    Crystal Palace v Man City (Sun, 14:05 BST)

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has announced that James Tomkins will miss the remainder of the season with a groin injury.

    "We lost James Tomkins in the game against Newcastle, he has been operated on, so he will miss the remainder of the season which is a major blow, coming on top of Mamadou Sakho's injury five or six games ago," said Hodgson.

  6. Pep praise for Bernardo Silva

    Pep Guardiola was asked about the impact of Bernardo Silva, whose presence was missed by Manchester City against Tottenham on Tuesda because of a thigh injury.

    Silva is one of the unsung heroes of the City team and Guardiola cannot speak highly enough of the Portugal international.

    "He came as an incredible player and has shown how incredible he is," he said.

    "He is a fighter, a guy who runs a lot, and he is incredibly clever.

    "You don’t have to tell him anything. He is an excellent player."

  7. 'We are not nervous' - Guardiola

    Crystal Palace v Man City (Sun, 14:05 BST)

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has refuted the comments made by midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who said they were "too nervous" in the wake of their Champions League quarter-final first leg defeat to Tottenham

    The Germany international claimed City's reaction to their penalty miss was not that of a big team but Guardiola said: "I don't agree with him, absolutely not.

    "In the second half it was under control. Our game at Tottenham was much better than Schalke. Sergio reacted incredibly well to the penalty, the team was mentally strong."

  8. Keita has found his feet - Klopp

    Liverpool v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is delighted with the recent form of summer signing Naby Keita.

    "He's looked really good in training the last few weeks. He found his feet in the Southampton game," Klopp said. "He showed a lot of the things we will see in the future much more often. A good moment, long may it continue."

    Klopp also said Liverpool will not rush Joe Gomez's first-team return, in order to ensure the 21-year-old is fit for the run-in. "With having Joe Gomez around is strange because you have to make sure he's 100% fit," Klopp said. "Maybe he can get match practice in other games but we will need Joe in other games this season."

  9. 'Don't talk about the slip' - Klopp

    Liverpool v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)


    Jurgen Klopp does not believe Liverpool's defeat against Chelsea at Anfield in 2014 will play on the mind of his side as they face the Blues this weekend.

    The Reds, who are two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table, suffered a 2-0 defeat by to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea which helped hand City the 2014 title.

    "I'm not sure that's in anyone's mind. You can tell all the fans out there to ignore it," Klopp said. "It's all about the game on Sunday. Only the colours and the names are the same pretty much. Anyone who wants to talk to any of my players about what happened years ago - don't do it."

  10. 'Difficult for Kane to recover by season end' - Pochettino

    Tottenham v Huddersfield (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    More from Mauricio Pochettino on Harry Kane's ankle injury, suffered against Manchester City in midweek.

    He says: "He is in a good place because he is a positive guy. It is a little bit sad but he is looking forward to recovering as soon as possible."

    When asked if he believes Kane could return this season, Pochettino said: "We'll see, there is five weeks, it is going to be difficult. Next week we are going to see with the specialist. We are going to do everything to recover him as soon as possible but there is only five weeks of the season to recover."

  11. Palace will be dangerous - Guardiola

    Crystal Palace v Man City (Sun, 14:05 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola acknowledges that the game against Crystal Palace could be dangerous because it comes in between each leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Tottenham. City have already lost at home to Roy Hodgson's team this season.

    "We knew it from weeks ago, how it would be between the games against Tottenham in Champions League," said Guardiola. "Palace are well organised and up front they have good players. We have six games left, so we are not what we are playing for.

    "At the end of the season, every game is a final."

  12. Manchester City team news

    Crystal Palace v Man City (Sun, 14:05 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says that full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko and Bernardo Silva are "feeling better" and could be available to play against Palace on Sunday.

    Silva missed out on the Champions League quarter-final against Tottenham because of a thigh injury.

    Bernardo SIlva
  13. Pochettino 'not optimistic' about Alli

    Tottenham v Huddersfield (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to Sky Sports about Harry Kane's ankle injury but has not offered any more updates on how long he wil be out for.

    He said: "We need to assess, but he is not in a great place. It's normal after a few days."

    On Dele Alli's chances of playing Huddersfield, the Spurs boss said he was "not too optimistic."

  14. Fate recurring?


    Funny how the fixtures work. Plenty of chat about Chelsea's visit to Liverpool on Sunday, five years after that famous Steven Gerrard slip, but strangely Manchester City travel to Crystal Palace, which was also the same fixture on the same day of the 2013-14 season.

    For those who've forgotten, Liverpool lost 2-0 to Chelsea, while Manchester City beat Palace by the same scoreline, which closed the gap to three points with City having a game in hand.

    Liverpool's 3-3 draw at Palace in the next game allowed City to overtake them and they went on to win their second Premier League title by two points.

    Could history repeat itself this weekend?

  15. Looking ahead - or back?

    Crystal Palace v Man City (Sun, 14:05 BST)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola is here shortly.

    Manchester City play Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday, a team they have already lost to at the Etihad Stadium this season.

    But I wonder whether the fall-out from Tuesday's Champions League defeat by Tottenham is still hanging over the club.

    City are in the hunt for an unprecedented Quadruple but winning in Europe is evidently the greatest priority.

  16. Tottenham team news

    Tottenham v Huddersfield (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    More team news for Tottenham. Serge Aurier (hamstring), Eric Dier (hip flexor) and Erik Lamela (hamstring) all remain on the treatment table.

  17. Tottenham team news

    Tottenham v Huddersfield (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    More from Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino shortly, but team news-wise it's no surprise that Harry Kane is unavailable for selection and continuing assessment following his ankle injury in Tuesday's win over Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final.

    But there is better news about Dele Alli, who fractured his hand in the same game. He's being assessed ahead of the early game tomorrow. So he could still feature.

  18. 'Fans need to be punished in right way' - Klopp

    Liverpool v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to Sky Sports about the video showing abusive chants towards Mo Salah and says: "We have to make sure that these things are punished in the right way. They should not be able to watch a game in a stadium again."

    More from him shortly.

  19. Your footballing slip ups

    #bbfootball or 81111

    Sharn Bowly: U-16's district match. My team scored an equaliser with minutes to go. I came on as sub to shore up defence. Long ball came towards me...I missed. Striker ran past and scored the winner. Dressing room was very quiet afterwards...

  20. Today's back pages

    The Mo Salah story is also the focus of the Daily Mirror, who headline with the same word used by Liverpool after the club condemned the video.
