    "All Liverpool can do now is keep winning, and hope Manchester City drop points somewhere," Lawro says.

    Leicester City

    A clean bill health for Leicester...

  8. Revenge can blind you - Nuno

    Watford v Wolves (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Wolves

    Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has urged his team to forget about a revenge mission against Watford.

    The manager is eager to avoid talk of their 3-2 FA Cup semi-final defeat to the Hornets earlier this month.

    Wolves blew a 2-0 lead to lose in extra time at Wembley but Nuno wants no talk of revenge.

    "It's a new game, a new challenge. That would be a mistake," said Nuno, who has lost both games to Javi Gracia's side this season.

    "Revenge or payback situations can blind you, and take away from your focus and attention."

  9. Almiron in Copa America race

    Brighton v Newcastle (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Miguel Almiron's domestic season might be over because of the hamstring injury he suffered in Saturday's 3-1 Premier League win over Southampton, but the Paraguayan is hoping to save his Copa America dream.

    Newcastle's record signing is battling to be fit for the tournament in Brazil.

    "He went to see a specialist in Spain and he has had his treatment," Benitez says.

    "Now everything is going according to plan, so it's quite positive and he's keen to do everything."

  10. Newcastle without trio

    Brighton v Newcastle (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle can potentially damage Brighton's survival hopes with victory at the Amex on Saturday.

    But they will be without three Magpies players through injury.

    “We have lost Florian Lejeune and Miguel Almiron. We have also lost Lascelles, who has had a stomach illness all week," boss Rafa Benitez says.

  11. Ajax not playing is not fair - Pochettino

    Tottenham v West Ham (12:30 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Earlier you heard Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was unhappy Ajax have the benefit of a weekend off before Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first leg.

    Spurs play West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime, while Dutch football authorities have postponed this weekend's Eredivisie fixtures to give Ajax more time to prepare for the game.

    "It is difficult. I understand that in this type of situation everyone can have an opinion," Pochettino says.

    "I know very well the Premier League and FA have tried to help.

    "It's true that the Premier League is very different to the Dutch league, the fact or the reality is they are not going to play. I think it's not fair."

  12. Wolves team news

    Watford v Wolves (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Wolves

    Wolves are likely to be unchanged when they travel to Watford on Saturday.

    Boss Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to keep faith with the team which beat Arsenal 3-1 at Molineux on Wednesday.

    Nuno has no fresh injury worries with Romain Saiss set to be benched again along with Morgan Gibbs-White.

    Provisional squad: Patricio, Ruddy, Norris, Doherty, Bennett, Dendoncker, Boly, Coady, Gibbs-White, Jonny, Saiss, Neves, Costa, Moutinho, Cavaleiro, Vinagre, Traore, Jimenez, Jota.

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola is coming to the end of his third season at Manchester City.

    He left Bayern Munich after three seasons and only lasted four at his beloved Barcelona before he took a year out.

    So, do City fans have any reason to be concerned?

    It appears not.

    "I am OK," said Guardiola.

    "This season was good. I know the players and the club and everything much better."

  14. I think Pogba will stay - Solskjaer

    Man Utd v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Being picked for the PFA team is not the only reason why Paul Pogba has been the topic of conversation this week.

    The Manchester United midfielder - who is contracted until July 2021 - has also been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

    Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he thinks Paul Pogba will still be at the club next season - but cannot guarantee it.

    "I think he will be here next season," said Solskjaer.

    PFA team
  16. Hazard should be in PFA team - Sarri

    Man Utd v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Paul Pogba being selected in the PFA Team of the Year certainly caused a stir.

    Where was Son Heung-min? And what about Eden Hazard?

    Unsurprisingly, Maurizio Sarri feels his player should have been a shoo-in.

    “I think that Eden deserved to be in the top XI of the Premier League," says the Chelsea boss

    "But I think, also, that at the moment the table is clear.

    "There is City, there is Liverpool, and then the other teams. And so I think the vote was influenced by the table.”

  17. Pep pleased with scoring record

    Burnley v Man City (14:05 BST)

    Manchester City

    Cruising past Manchester United on Wednesday saw Manchester City set a new record - the most by an English top-flight side in a single season.

    The 2-0 win at Old Trafford took City to 157 goals in all competitions this season. Pep, obviously, is pleased.

    "I love to score a lot of goals and respect this game. I want to attack every game, Guardiola says.

    "I am so proud. Everyone was involved. Sergio and Gabriel score a lot, the wingers a lot. I am very pleased."

  18. 'Hudson-Odoi will come back stronger'

    Man Utd v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Chelsea

    Blues boss Sarri says he thinks Hudson-Odoi will "recover well" from his surgery, estimating he will be out for "three months".

    "The operation of Callum went in the right way. I think that he will be back here in one or two days.

    "He'll need time now, but Callum is a very strong young man. Very strong physically, and very strong mentally.

    "I'm sure he'll be able to come back better than before."

  19. Rudiger fit, Kante doubtful

    Man Utd v Chelsea (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Chelsea

    Next on the agenda for Chelsea gaffer Maurizio Sarri... some HR.

    The Blues boss says Germany defender Toni Rudiger is "OK" for Sunday's trip to Old Trafford.

    France midfielder N'Golo Kante is touch and go, while young England winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is out after having surgery on his Achilles.

  20. 100 point target

    Burnley v Man City (Sun, 14:05 BST)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says the bar has been raised in terms of winning the Premier League title.

    City became the first team to reach 100 points last season and whilst they won't hit three figures this term, it may take 98 for them to retain their crown given Liverpool remain just a point behind.

    Guardiola doesn't see that figure falling much in the years ahead.

    "Liverpool have realised to win the title now you need 100 points. It is like Usain Bolt when he ran the 100m. Everyone else has to go as fast to match him."
