  1. Goodbye

    That's it from me today, another busy one!

    Here are a few things that might be of interest:

    Plus, don't forget BBC Sport will have live text coverage of tonight's Premier League action

    But, for now, it's goodbye.

  2. 'They're not robots'

    Leicester v West Ham (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    Here's more from Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers:

    On transfers: "There’s a few things going on behind the scenes but nothing imminent. We’ll look across the squad at where we can improve. "I don’t think this will be a month of a lot of activity – it’s a tough window to do anything in. If we can, we will.

    On injuries and busy fixture list: "There’s no doubt the game is quicker and faster, the impact is greater. When you’re playing so many games the injuries will come. We have seen a lack of intensity in recent weeks, and we need to think of the players. They're not robots."

  3. 'Their attitudes have been so good'

    Leicester v West Ham (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    West Ham United

    David Moyes outlined the progress he feels West Ham made since he returned to the club at the end of last month.

    "We're trying to get some wins, and not just on the pitch. We've defended better in recent weeks. We've started very well. We want to keep scoring goals and we also need to make sure we're not giving the team opportunities to score.

    "We want to be able to play with four at the back and three and the back. It's much more common to change. We've worked on both systems so we can do that, but it's down to the players' attitudes, and their attitudes have been so good. I've seen it in their stats. That's the most notable thing for me."

  4. Felipe Anderson ruled out

    Leicester v West Ham (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    West Ham United

    West Ham boss David Moyes has confirmed Felipe Anderson could be out for up to a month with a back injury.

    Michail Antonio is edging closer to fitness but will miss tomorrow's trip to Leicester. Andriy Yarmolenko is likely to be out for another three weeks with a thigh problem.

  5. 'They’re young and will make mistakes'

    Leicester v West Ham (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    Brendan Rodgers on Hamza Choudhury and Ben Chilwell, who were both left out of defeat to Burnley after turning up late to a training session: "It’s something that happens at every club and misdemeanours happen. It was dealt with internally – there’s no need to broadcast.

    "We've moved on. They’re young and will make mistakes, it will happen at lots of clubs. Both are available.

    "You’re creating a standard. Authority is important and players need to understand that they can't miss training if they want to succeed."

  6. Ndidi in contention after 'incredible' recovery

    Leicester v West Ham (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    Leicester City

    There is a "great chance" Wilfred Ndidi will be in the Leicester City squad to face West Ham tomorrow. Brendan Rodgers says the midfielder has made an "incredible" 11-day recovery from a knee injury - having initially been sidelined for three to four weeks.

    "He has been a big miss," said Rodgers. "He’s a colossal player for us – covers a lot of space for our attacking players, and there are not many more important players.

    "He has been a miss – there’s no doubt."

  7. Liverpool turn down Shaqiri bids

    Mandeep Sanghera

    BBC Sport

    Liverpool have turned down approaches from Italian club Roma and Spanish side Sevilla to take Switzerland midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri on loan.

    The Reds are not prepared to let Shaqiri leave in January as they close on the Premier League title and remain in the Champions League and FA Cup.

    Nor will they consider a loan deal with an option to buy the 28-year-old.

    The club will not sell him until the summer when they would value him at 30 million euros (£25.5m).

  8. Mourinho on Rose omission

    Tottenham v Norwich (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    He's more from Jose Mourinho on the reasons why Danny Rose missed the weekend draw at Watford:

    "On the Thursday before Watford late evening I got a call from my medical staff saying that Danny was calling them with a problem in his back and he wouldn't train the next day.

    "Friday it was a bit of a surprise to see him training, but even so I decided to play with (Japhet) Tanganga and have Ryan (Sessegnon) on the bench. That is the situation."

  9. Mourinho on transfers

    Tottenham v Norwich (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho was not having any of it when he was pushed for an update on any potential incomings, as well as the future of rumoured Inter Milan target Christian Eriksen.

    “We are very poor on news for two reasons. One, because we are not buying a player every day. And two, I am the kind of guy who refuses to speak about players from other clubs. Some managers are happy to do that but I am not."

    On the future of Eriksen: “In relation to Christian, the answer is not good for you and the answer is he is selected for tomorrow."

    On a possible move for PSG’s Edinson Cavani: "I have a very good relationship with Mr Nasser (Al-Khelaifi, PSG president) and Mr Leonardo (PSG sporting director) and I want to keep that good relationship. Good relationships are based on respect, so I am not going to speak about a player of PSG."

  10. BreakingNewcastle sign Bentaleb on loan

    Newcastle have confirmed the signing of former Tottenham midfielder Nabil Bentaleb on loan from Schalke until the end of the season.

  11. Norwich survival would be a 'miracle'

    Tottenham v Norwich (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    Norwich City

    Here's Norwich boss Daniel Farke on the challenge facing his side this season:

    "More breaks and less games would definitely help with the quality of the games.

    "It's tricky for the coach in terms of man management. We're only allowed to play 11 players and not all the players can play.

    "We have to be realistic. When you get promoted into the best league in the world, you have to handle the expectations a little bit. We had the biggest injury crisis of all our competitors at this level as well.

    "We didn't have a lot of luck. We know it will be a big sensation, maybe a miracle that we stay in this league."

  12. Buendia out for Norwich

    Tottenham v Norwich (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    Norwich City

    Norwich will be without Emi Buendia, Mario Vrancic and Ralf Fahrmann through injury for tomorrow's trip to Tottenham while Ben Godfrey is suspended.

    Quotes from Daniel Farke to follow.

  13. Mourinho denies Rose bust-up

    Tottenham v Norwich (Wed 19:30 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Jose Mourinho has dismissed reports of a training ground bust-up between himself and Danny Rose, who was left out of the squad for Saturday's draw at Watford.

    "I don't know what you mean by tension in the air, I don't have a problem with him," he said.

  14. Post update

    Everton v Newcastle (19:30 GMT)

    Ian Dennis

    Radio 5 live senior football reporter

    Steve Bruce deserves a lot of credit. He's currently dealing with one of the longest injury lists in the top flight, yet Newcastle are eight points better off than this stage last season.

    The smash-and-grab victory against Chelsea also underlined the fighting spirit in the squad, as they gained their first league win since before Christmas to provide a seven-point buffer from the bottom three.

    I commentated on the reverse fixture 25 days ago and I thought Newcastle were unlucky to lose.

    I also watched Everton on Saturday and thought they laboured at West Ham. The injured Richarlison was missed. But they've been strong at Goodison Park, where they have a good record against Newcastle - with just one defeat in 15 league games.

  15. Ndombele back in training

    Tottenham v Norwich (Wed, 19:30 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is back in training so could be in contention to return against Norwich on Wednesday. The 23-year-old has not featured since the defeat at Southampton on New Year's Day, missing four matches.

  16. Dyche on 'relentless' schedule

    Man Utd v Burnley (Wed, 20:15 GMT)


    Here is more from Burnley boss Sean Dyche speaking at his news conference earlier today:

    “We have been through a tough a run and came out with what I felt was a good performance, particularly in the second half against Leicester.

    “We’ve got another big game at Old Trafford, a cup game, then a small break and then we’ve got Arsenal.

    “It’s relentless, so for me, it still comes back to performance levels.

    “I’ve spoken about it consistently since I have been here as manager. It’s always the first marker and I spoke to the players about it, getting back to a performance level.

    “On this occasion it got us a result and we’ve got to keep doing that.”

  17. Nantes to wear special Argentine-themed kit in memory of Sala

    Nantes have unveiled a commemorative jersey in honour of Emiliano Sala on the first anniversary of the plane crash in which the Argentine striker died.

    The French Ligue 1 team will wear the shirt when they face Bordeaux at the weekend, and proceeds from sales of the jersey will go to two of Sala's former sides in Argentina, Club San Martin de Progreso and Proyecto Crecer.

  18. Post update

    Sheffield Utd v Man City (19:30 GMT)

    Guy Mowbray

    Match of the Day commentator

    It's clearly a season that's mostly about Europe now.

    Just to clarify, I do mean for City, but as the Blades sit just one point off fifth place in the table there is a very real chance of a Europa League place being won.

    Never mind the squad depth, feel the consistency. Chris Wilder only 'rotates' his team very gently, with eight of his most regular line-up having started 22 or more of 23 league games.

    They're a throwback to times past whilst simultaneously being one of the most progressive sides around, drawing fulsome praise from Pep Guardiola after December's meeting at the Etihad.

    Sheffield United diehards aside, who looked at this game when the fixtures came out and thought anything other than away win? You just might now.

  19. BreakingSheffield Utd sign Robinson

    Sheffield United have signed defender Jack Robinson from Nottingham Forest on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

    The former Liverpool player is the Blades' second signing of the January transfer window after Jack Rodwell signed a short-term deal at the start of the month.

  20. Gossip: Barcelona eye Aubameyang


    Barcelona are on the lookout for striking reinforcements following an injury suffered by Luis Suarez and Spanish outfit Mundo Deportivo claims they are targeting Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

    However, the report also states that Arsenal are reluctant to sell the player this month, meaning Barca would struggle to agree an acceptable fee for the Gabon international.
