  1. Goodbye

    Liverpool celebrate

    That's me done. We'll be back here for the FA Cup fourth-round draw and Arsenal v Leeds from around 19:00 GMT.

    But I'll leave you with some of the best bits of content from today:

    See you all soon.

  2. Watch: FA Cup draw for the fourth round

    BBC One

    Right not long before I finish up for the morning on here so a final reminder that you can watch the draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup live on BBC One and on the BBC Sport website from 19:30 GMT.

    The draw takes place before Arsenal versus Leeds (19:56 GMT), which you can also watch live on the BBC.

    Alex Scott, who played for England and Arsenal Women, will be joined by former Gunners defender and Leeds boss David O'Leary to pull out the numbers.

    You can dig out all the team numbers for that draw here.

  3. Quiz: Name the Arsenal & Leeds XI's from 2004

    Arsenal v Leeds (19:56 GMT)

    Arsenal v Leeds

    Arsenal play Leeds United at Emirates Stadium later on Monday - in a game you can watch live on BBC One.

    But can you remember the starting XI's when they last faced each other in the Premier League?

    In April 2004, Arsene Wenger's 'Invincibles' hit five goals past Eddie Gray's Leeds as part of their unbeaten league season. And while Arsenal lifted the Premier League trophy in May, Leeds were relegated after 14 years in the top flight - and are yet to return.

    We want you to name as many of the starting line-up from both teams as you can. Three minutes on the clock for this one. Just head here to get under way.

  4. Relive all the FA Cup magic

    Given the FA Cup third-round weekend comes to a close on Monday night when Arsenal face Leeds, here's a little reminder that there's only one place to go if you want to relive all the action.

  5. 'I speak to players about how they portray themselves'

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Now here are a few final snippets from the Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer: "We're gonna aim for performances like that [against Manchester City], we had two good days against Tottenham and City in a short spell but every game lives its own life, when you get highs like that I'm sure they will look back on it and that's the Manchester United we want to see but we can improve on that one.

    "City had Port Vale at home, he [Pep Guardiola] could rest a few, no matter what team he plays it's going to be a good team and we'll put a strong team out.

    On social media: "It's part of being a Man United player, how you come across and it's important that you do give up yourself in a positive way and it's football-related. I do speak to players about how they portray themselves. I don't have these social media things but it's a different generation."

  6. Post update

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Jesse Lingard has apparently linked-up with agent Mino Raiola, of course, which alongside his relatively poor form has prompted speculation his days at Old Trafford are numbered.

  7. Solskjaer 'wants Jesse back'

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00GMT)

    BBC Sport

    Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been talking about Jesse Lingard.

    The England star did not score or create a Premier League goal in 2019 and has been mentioned as a makeweight in a potential deal for Leicester forward James Maddison.

    Lingard missed Saturday's FA Cup tie at Wolves due to illness but it seems Solskjaer still has a lot of faith in the 27-year-old.

    "Jesse has had his ups and downs but the Manchester City and Tottenham games were two examples of how important he can be for us," he said.

    "We want him back scoring and making assists.

    "No-one runs as much, he is a great trigger in the pressing and a lively, bubbly character,

    "I don't think you see as much social media from Jesse as you used to. Got his head down and working hard and getting back to the Jesse I knew."

  8. 'City have raised the bar under Guardiola'

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester City have "raised the bar" under Pep Guardiola and given Manchester United something to aim for.

    United play City in the EFL Cup semi-final first-leg at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

    Last month, United beat City at the Etihad Stadium in one of the best performances of Solskjaer's time as manager.

    But, even though City are lagging behind Liverpool in the Premier League at the moment, Solskjaer still feels they set the standards.

    "I admire Pep," said Solskjaer. "They have raised the bar so much it is something to aim for.

    "They are back winning games and confident but form goes out of the window. In a derby it is about adrenalin and atmosphere."

  9. 'Some of them are still not ready'

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    More from the Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: "Big games give you energy, give you the urge to go to the next level, above and beyond what you might be capable of in your head.

    "Sometimes you surprise yourself, there's no way you can train in between, it's about mental preparation, good treatment with physios and staff and just hopefully remember what we did last time and what we must do better.

    On United's injured players: "I'm going to give them as much time as we can, that's the most correct and honest answer I can give, some of them are still not ready. If it was a game today I'm not sure they could perform at their best but it is another 36 hours until I give them the team."

  10. 'You always want to win trophies'

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Right as promised here is the Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: "You always want to win trophies and we're so close now but having local derbies in semi-finals are hopefully gonna be two good games and two good days in Manchester.

    "There are two games so we have to know when this game finishes it's half-time, we have still got to go to Etihad, finish the job off if we do well tomorrow.

    "It's a two-game tie but just focus on this one because it's three weeks until the next one."

  11. Post update

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is coming up very shortly.

  12. Lingard's switch to Raiola

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Jesse Lingard's future is the subject of some debate given his switch of agents to Mino Raiola.

    Raiola has been making waves at Manchester United given his handling of Paul Pogba.

    Lingard missed Saturday's FA Cup draw at Wolves through illness and he has been mentioned as a potential makeweight in an attempt to sign James Maddison from Leicester.

  13. What makes Leeds' Marcelo Bielsa 'the greatest coach in the world'?

    I didn't know he was but I'll take Pep Guardiola's word for it.

    I promise this is well worth a ganders as Guillem Balague profiles Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds United's eccentric Argentine manager, a man known as 'El Loco' and hailed by the Manchester City boss as "the greatest coach in the world".

  14. Man Utd's EFL Cup mission

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00GMT)

    BBC Sport

    Another competition for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to look forward to today - and another game against Manchester City.

    Manchester United's victory at the Etihad Stadium last month was probably the best performance of Solskjaer's time as manager at Old Trafford.

    Weirdly though, whilst United have only lost once to City in four games at the Etihad since Pep Guardiola arrived in 2016, they have only won one in four at home.

  15. Solskaer news conference incoming

    Man Utd v Man City (Tues, 20:00 GMT)

    Man Utd players celebrate

    Right, looking a tad further forward to Tuesday evening...Manchester United face Manchester City in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final.

    The teams last met at this stage of the competition in 2010, with United going through 4-3 on aggregate but quite a lot has changed since then.

    United are on their fourth manager of the post Sir Alex Ferguson era, while City have won four Premier League titles since then compared to United's two.

    United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is up to do his new conference around 10:00 GMT, so we'll bring all of that to you shortly.

  16. Early team news

    Arsenal v Leeds (19:56 GMT)

    Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has been ruled out for at least six months with a ruptured cruciate ligament.

    Gabriel Martinelli and Hector Bellerin have been nursing hamstring problems and will both be assessed.

    Leeds are without forward Eddie Nketiah, who has been recalled from his loan spell by Arsenal.

    Head coach Marcelo Bielsa says Robbie Gotts and goalkeeper Illan Meslier will make their debuts, with Gaetano Berardi and Barry Douglas also starting.

  17. Post update

    Arsenal v Leeds (19:56 GMT)

    Alan Shearer

    Former Newcastle and England striker on BBC One

    Arsenal should try to win the FA Cup this year. I don’t see them getting into the top four.

    The new manager has given a lot of energy to his players – they now know what he wants, he’s going to change the style of play. He wants to go after teams, he wants to see that pressing.

    They were very good against Manchester United, and he will be trying to take that performance into the game tonight. It will be very, very tough. Leeds are desperate to get back into the Premier League.

  18. Beckford eyes another Leeds upset
