Live Reporting

By Emma Sanders

All times stated are UK

  1. ‘A vibrant group’

    Leicester v Tottenham (12:30 BST)

    Tony Pulis

    Former Stoke and West Brom manager on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Brendan Rodgers wasn’t going to leave Celtic unless he was
    going to a club on the up. He’s a got a vibrant group of young players at Leicester blended with older players who’ve been there and won the league. It’s a great mix.

    Jonny Evans has become a big player in that team and Jamie
    Vardy is outstanding.

  2. Post update

    Leicester v Tottenham (12:30 BST)

    Leicester duo James Maddison and Jamie Vardy arrived at the King Power a little while ago and I couldn’t help but notice a rather ‘interesting’ backpack from Madders…

  3. Early team news

    Burnley v Norwich (15:00 BST)

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche will make a late decision on whether to include Johann Berg Gudmundsson after his calf injury.

    However, Danny Drinkwater is not yet fit enough to return from an ankle problem.

    Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke is still without a host of players.

    Max Aarons, Onel Hernandez, Timm Klose, Moritz Leitner, Tom Trybull, Mario Vrancic and Christoph Zimmermann all remain on the sidelines.

  4. As it stands…

    It’s Liverpool who sit five points clear at the top of the table. Manchester City have an opportunity to shorten the gap to just two points with victory for at least a night.

    Leicester could leapfrog Tottenham and break into the top four if all goes well at the King Power, while Bournemouth could remain in a Champions League spot if Spurs get a result!

  5. Maddison on MOTDx

    Leicester v Tottenham (12:30 BST)

    Madders, Fifa 20 and Love Island. What more could you want?

  6. Early team news

    Leicester v Tottenham (12:30 BST)

    Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell is expected to be available despite a minor fitness issue this week.

    Matty James continues his recovery from Achilles surgery and is the Foxes’ only reported absentee.

    Tottenham full-backs Serge Aurier and Danny Rose could return after being rested against Olympiakos, but Giovani lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon remain out.

    Forward Son Heung-min is likely to start after beginning on the bench in midweek.

  7. What happened last night?

    Southampton 1-3 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth survived a second-half fightback to secure a first ever victory at Southampton and move into third place before this weekend’s games.

    Eddie Howe’s side produced a superb first-half display to establish a two-goal lead as Nathan Ake headed in Diego Rico’s corner and Harry Wilson’s sweeping finish from Phillip Billing’s pass crowned a superb move.

    Southampton snatched at a lifeline when James Ward-Prowse scored from the spot eight minutes after the break following Steve Cook’s clumsy challenge on Che Adams.

    But the Cherries clung on and now sit level on points with Manchester City, having played one game extra.

    Read the full match report.

  8. Coming up today…

    A nice spread of fixtures today. Defending champions Manchester City are hoping to bounce back from their defeat to Norwich when they welcome Watford this afternoon.

    But it’s Champions League runners-up Tottenham who open the proceedings with a tough trip to the King Power to take on Leicester.

  9. Post update

    Good morning!

    We have five Premier League games coming up today with half of the top six in action.

    Newcastle could move out of the bottom three, while a result for Tottenham would ensure Bournemouth remain in the top four for at least another day.

    And Manchester City need a win to keep up with leaders Liverpool.

    Here’s what’s coming up…
