  1. Thanks for the memories

    Well, that was fun.

    Maybe not so much for Manchester City fans and Pep Guardiola as they ponder two more injuries to defensive-minded players. But who needs defenders when you have Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Ageuro in your ranks, right?

    We have loved your suggestions of players' defining moments, many long forgotten - Federico Macheda anyone?

    Now it's time to start looking forward. Who will be making their mark in tonight's Premier League tussle between Southampton and Leicester at St Mary's?

    You can listen to BBC Radio 5 Live commentary and follow our live text updates here from 18:45 BST.

    Until then, sayonara.

  2. Another magic night at Carrow Road?

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

    Norwich City

    There is no doubting the highlight of Norwich's return to the Premier League so far - a stunning 3-2 victory at home to champions Manchester City.

    It's Manchester United's turn to experience the Carrow Road hospitality this weekend, and manager Daniel Farke is hoping for a repeat performance.

    "We created a magic night against Man City," he said. "We can't take it as a given to repeat that on a weekly basis but we are trying to be outstanding with our performances. The atmosphere has to be like a cup game, a do or die game.

    "If someone makes a successful tackle the whole stadium has to be buzzing. We need that mood or we have no chance."

  3. Team news

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

    Norwich City

    Daniel Farke had some encouraging team news - there are no fresh concerns ahead of Sunday's visit of Manchester United.

    He said: "(Grant) Hanley and (Christoph) Zimmermann are still out, as is (Timm) Klose. (Ralf) Fahrmann is back in team training this week but this game will be too early for him. (Mario) Vrancic is on the way to recovering, but won't be involved on Sunday. All the other guys are available.

    "(Tom) Trybull was involved for 45 minutes in the last game, (Onel) Hernandez was involved for a few. We still have to be careful with them. Hernandez did some additional individual stuff on Tuesday and his knee reacted a bit, but I'm pretty sure he'll be fit for this game."

  5. 'Duncan was a model professional'

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

    Norwich City

    Sunday's match will be tinged with sadness following the death of Norwich legend Duncan Forbes on Wednesday following a battle with Alzheimer's.

    There will be a minute's silence before kick-off and both sides will wear black armbands.

    And manager Daniel Farke wants his players to follow the lead set by Forbes during his 13 years and almost 300 games for the club.

    "It's important to feel the emotion," he said. "But we have to concentrate when the referee blows the whistle. Duncan would want us to do that and not to lose our nerves. He was a role model for being professional."

  6. 'We're not naive about Man Utd quality'

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

    Norwich City

    Norwich manager Daniel Farke hopes to turn up the heat on Sunday's visitors Manchester United.

    "It's always a great day to play still one of the best clubs in the world," he said.

    "We know it's a huge task for us, so it's an exciting day for everyone involved at Carrow Road. We're respectful of United.

    "Hopefully it's tough for every opponent to play against us. We don't want any of them to think it's easy. They're not where they want to be at the moment, but all clubs have transition periods.

    "David de Gea is a world class keeper, rested just for this game! Harry Maguire is one of the best centre-backs in the world. Paul Pogba one of the best holding midfielders. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Daniel James, Jesse many good options and top class players. We're not naive about that."

  8. 'Arsenal's attack is very dangerous' - Hodgson

    Arsenal v Crystal Palace (Sun, 16:30 GMT)

    Crystal Palace

    Roy Hodgson on this weekend's opponents, Arsenal: “Arsenal have had a very good start to the season. Their attack is very, very dangerous."

    Hodgson on whether he thinks someone new can break into the top six this season: "There’s quite a few teams this season who are able and are waiting for someone in the regular top six to slip up."

  9. Post update

    Arsenal v Crystal Palace (Sun, 16:30 GMT)

  10. Pep 'they all want to play'

    Man City v Aston Villa (Sat, 12:30BST)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says 'everyone wants to play' and that time is required for young midfielder Phil Foden to improve.

    Foden made only his fifth appearance of the season against Atalanta on Tuesday. In two of those games he came on in the final minute of normal time.

    It seems a poor reward for one of England's brightest young talents, especially when players such as Callum Hudson-Odoi and Foden's former Manchester City team-mate Jadon Sancho are getting more games elsewhere.

    But Guardiola says Foden is not alone in wanting to play - and that it will be another few years before he gets close to his peak.

    "All the guys say the same, all of them," he said. "They all suggest they should play more. I understand it and they are right.

    "For Phil, between the ages of 19 and 23, every season he will get better.

    "The quality is there. He is a fighter and has an incredible work ethic. One day he will get it."

    Phil Foden
  11. 'We have an option on Luiz'

    Man City v Aston Villa (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Manchester City

    Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz could have been lining up for Manchester City on Saturday.

    The 21-year-old Brazilian was on City's books but left in July after spending two years at the club in the youth ranks.

    Pep Guardiola admits he is one that got away, but opened the door for a possible return to the Etihad.

    "Sometimes life is like this," said the City manager. "We wanted him. The rules here in England with the work permit meant it was not possible. He was good in pre-season and last season in the States. He’s at Aston Villa. I think we have an option to buy back."

    Crystal Palace

    Vicente Guaita and Martin Kelly both came through training today ahead ahead of Palace's trip to Arsenal.

  14. All credit is to Raheem

    Manchester City v Aston Villa (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola refused to accept the credit for Raheem Sterling's evolution into one of the best goal-scoring midfielders in the world.

    England winger Sterling, 24, has scored 16 goals in 17 appearances for club and country this season.

    "All the credit is to Raheem. We talk as a group, the quality of everyone helps the rest of the players. The credit is to him and the rest of the players. We dream of players getting better, month by month, season by season."

  15. Zinchenko out for 'four to five' weeks

    Man City v Aston Villa (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Manchester City

    Pep Guardiola has confirmed Ukraine defender Oleksandr Zinchenko will be out for more than a month after undergoing knee surgery.

    He said: "Zinchenko had contact with the knee and felt something in the bone. He has to stop for four or five weeks. He had (surgery) to clean the knee."

    Guardiola also said midfielder Rodri would be out "until after the international break" after picking up an injury in Tuesday's Champions League win against Atalanta.

    The Spaniard, who had been covering in defence, pulled up with what looked like a hamstring strain.

    The next international break will take place in mid-November, meaning Rodri faces up to four weeks on the sidelines.

  16. 'I just want Kante fit' - Lampard

    Burnley v Chelsea (Sat, 17:30 BST)


    As we mentioned a little earlier, Chelsea remain without Ross Barkley, N'Golo Kante, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen for their trip to Burnley.

    The quartet are out alongside long-term absentee Ruben Loftus-Cheek. "Loftus-Cheek is well out, Rudiger and N'Golo are not ready for the weekend," manager Frank Lampard said.

    "Christensen and Barkley are both out as well.

    N'Golo Kante was thought to be close to returning from a groin problem, but Lampard has decided to take a "step back" with the France midfielder in a bid to make sure he gets fit and stays fit. "I just want him fit," added Lampard. "He might be suffering from the big injury at the end of last season. There is no time frame."

    Frank Lampard does not expect an "easy" game when his side travel to Burnley for their Saturday evening game.
