  1. Bye for now

    That's all from us today but stay tuned for any further updates on the Bury situation later.

    We'll be back for live text commentary on tonight's Premier League game between Aston Villa and Everton (20:00 BST) - but don't forget to sort your fantasy team out in time. Click here for this week's tips.

    Until then, we'll leave you with some of today's top stories:

  2. It's the biggest day in Bury's history - Neville

    Local lad Phil Neville also told Robbie Savage's Premier League Breakfast on BBC Radio 5 Live that his family are "devastated" about Bury's possible demise.

    Neville's mother Jill last week resigned as club secretary while his late father Neville was a director and has a stand named after him at Gigg Lane.

    The former Manchester United defender said: "One man cannot stop one football club, which has hundreds of years of history, going out of existence.

    "It's probably the biggest day in their history. Today Bury, the town, might not have a football club. It's absolutely disgraceful."

  3. Owner calls for Bury pledges

    Bury facing EFL expulsion deadline

    Back at Gigg Lane and here's the latest on the plight of Bury Football Club...

    Owner Steve Dale is asking members of the public to pledge money as the League One club bids to avoid expulsion from the English Football League.

    The Shakers must provide evidence to the EFL that they can pay off creditors and have the funding needed to survive the season by 23:59 BST today.

  4. Former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Torres plays final match

    Elsewhere today, Spanish World Cup-winning striker Fernando Torres played his final professional match before retirement.

    The former Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea forward, 35, finished his career in Japan with Sagan Tosu.

    They lost 6-1 his final game to a Vissel Kobe side featuring former team-mates Andres Iniesta and David Villa.

    Iniesta wrote Torres an open letter, in which he said "it's been a wonderful journey, it has taken us to every corner of the world".

    Full story here.

  5. Drinkwater set for Clarets debut in EFL Cup

    Wolves v Burnley (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Burnley

    Danny Drinkwater played 45 minutes in Burnley's Under-23s on Monday and for a full training-ground game in midweek.

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: “Danny has taken another big step towards real fitness by getting 90 minutes under his belt. We’ll certainly be looking for some kind of figuring for him in the cup game (Wednesday), but it’s a bit quick for him on Sunday.

    “He’s kind at the end of his personal pre-season. Although he’s fit and well, he hadn’t played much football this pre-season at Chelsea.

    “We explained he needed the minutes to get back up to speed and he’s bought into that and been training really well.”

  6. Poch on Vertonghen absence

    Spurs v Newcastle United (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino on whether Jan Vertonghen needs to play for his fitness: "I am only going to decide to try and provide the best players that are in my head to play.

    "If I don’t play someone it is because I believe there is another in my opinion that is better. This is very clear."

  7. Klose and Zimmermann back in training

    Norwich v Chelsea (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Norwich City

    Timm Klose and fellow defender Christoph Zimmermann are back in training. Boss Daniel Farke said they are unlikely to start against Chelsea, with next week's game at West Ham more likely.

    Winger Onel Hernandez has undergone knee surgery is out for three months.

  8. We're underdogs in every game - Farke

    Norwich v Chelsea (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Norwich City

    Norwich got their first win back in the Premier League against Newcastle last Saturday and this week welcome Frank Lampard's Chelsea.

    Canaries boss Daniel Farke said: "The Newcastle performance was good for our confidence. But we will still be the underdog in each and every game. We need to keep working.

    "Chelsea have got their season up and running with performances but just haven't got the win yet. They are such a top-class side. They are perhaps even more dangerous because they are greedy to get their first win."

  9. Brady out for Clarets

    Wolves v Burnley (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Burnley

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche has confirmed that Robbie Brady will not be involved on Sunday Wolves, but the Irish midfielder is back in full training after a rib injury.

    Danny Drinkwater is also absent but the on-loan Chelsea midfielder is likely to feature in Wednesday's EFL Cup tie with Sunderland as he builds up to full fitness. Fellow midfielder Steven Defour is back in light training.

  10. 'Experiment? I'm not a scientist'

    Spurs v Newcastle United (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    On whether he will experiment against Newcastle ahead of the Arsenal game: "I’m not a scientist, I'm not a chemist. You are talking about experimenting. That is in some room outside of this training room.

    "We are coaches and we do our job, we don’t experiment. We train people that have the ability to play football. Then that’s it.

    "Please don’t compare us with doctors or people in university studying a lot. I have a lot of respect for the people who do what you say - experiment, to help life - but for us to find solutions, I am only a football coach, far away from the people who work in science or at university."

  11. 'Stupid people are everywhere' - Poch

    Spurs v Newcastle United (Sun, 16:30 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Pochettino on Twitter abuse: "I don’t know if it is the responsibility of the platform.

    "It is the responsibility of the people, it is a terrible situation. We are going to be in 2020 in a few months and it is a terrible thing.

    "To be in this type of situation - if we care more for the Amazon, we care more for the immigration, we care more for the people sat next to us - the world will be much better.

    "But I don’t want to be a populist or to have a meeting on important things in life.

    "Stupid people are everywhere and people who use that platform to be behind a thing, are unacceptable. I am a person that, if I can fight, I am going to fight."

    Mauricio Pochettino
  12. Kante doubtful for Blues

    Norwich v Chelsea (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Chelsea

    Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has an ankle injury and will be assessed over the next 24 hours.

    Pedro missed training on Tuesday but that was merely a precaution after a busy fixture schedule.

    Defender Antonio Rudiger is still out but boss Frank Lampard is hoping he’ll be back for next week's home game against Sheffield United.

  13. Pep surprise at Silva success

    Bournemouth v Man City (Sun, 14:00 BST)

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says it’s a “privilege” to work with David Silva, who could play his 400th game for the club on Sunday.

    Guardiola also admits he didn’t expect the diminutive Spanish midfielder to succeed in England because of his size and the physicality of the Premier League, but he was “happily, happily wrong”.

    The City boss added: “He has an incredible character - a winner. What I admire the most is the records and for you to do 400 games is many bad moments, many good moments, you can have a good year, but almost 10 seasons at the club is special. It’s a privilege what he has done with this club, and the last season he can help us achieve.

    “He is one of the most incredibly intelligent players to move in small spaces. In space, everybody takes time and makes the right decision, but he’s really good in small spaces. He has to be so proud.”

  14. Zinchenko fit, Cancelo 'ready' to play

    Bournemouth v Man City (Sun, 14:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Oleksandr Zinchenko is fit for Sunday's game. Although the left-back needed treatment late in last Saturday's 2-2 draw with Tottenham, it was just cramp.

    Fellow defender John Stones remains out but summer signing Joao Cancelo could make his debut.

    "He can play, he's ready," said Guardiola. "He sees what we want in training and analysis. He's paying attention, is a good professional and has quality."

  15. Keita and Lovren updates

    Liverpool v Arsenal (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Liverpool

    On Dejan Lovren: “No comment on Lovren. A potential transfer or not, I don’t want to talk about it.”

    Klopp also added that Naby Keita is “doing well” but is not close enough for this weekend.

  16. 'We want to be the team nobody wants to play against'

    Liverpool v Arsenal (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Liverpool

    On Unai Emery's comments that he doesn't want to play Liverpool:"It's not what he thinks, he makes a joke! We can't make a serious question of it. We want to be the team nobody wants to play against."

    On expecting goals against Arsenal: "Both teams are offensive oriented. Arsenal will probably change at least two key positions, Pepe will start and won't make them weaker, and maybe Xhaka. Teams often play different against us, makes analysing tricky."

    Liverpool
  17. Klopp calls for transfer window unity

    Liverpool v Arsenal (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Liverpool

    On the transfer window: “I don’t care when the transfer window closes, so long as it’s at the same time.

    “I agreed when the Premier League closed it early but if the rest keep it over, what is the advantage for the Premier League.

    “Some top players are still kind of on the market.”

  18. 'It's about being able to kick the butts of your team-mates'

    Liverpool v Arsenal (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Liverpool

    On team spirit: “There are different types of team spirit, the team won the Champions League last season so it would be strange if they didn’t.

    “It’s about being able to kick the butts of your team-mates, not just having drinks together.

    “I liked what Hendo said in pre-season when he said ‘we’d be friends forever.’ Not best friends, you’ve got to be able to push each other for now.

    "At the moment we have to be friends but not best friends.

    "We have to be very angry and stay greedy. We are, I'm not in doubt about that.

    "The best team spirit in the world isn't just about being together, we want everybody to be pushing each other. That's what we have."

    Jurgen Klopp
  19. 'Intensity wise, we were there'

    Liverpool v Arsenal (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Liverpool

    On recent games: "We were a bit lucky in the penalty shoot-out against Chelsea, but I was completely happy about that.

    "Southampton was one of the most challenging games I have had. Intensity wise, we were there."

    Jurgen Klopp
  20. It’s not about being perfect, it’s being ready'

    Liverpool v Arsenal (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Liverpool

    Klopp says "we believe in training, hopefully you will see the benefits.”

    “It’s about attacking, it’s about defending.

    “We needed to show 100% attention in all sessions and that’s what the boys showed.

    “First we have to reach the level of last year.

    “It doesn’t mean after the summer break we’re there. It’s not about being perfect, it’s being ready.”
