2024 only chance for Paris Olympics, says bid chairman – video

The co-president of Paris’s 2014 Olympic bid, Tony Estanguet, says that while he is supportive of the mood within the IOC to award the locations of both the 2024 and the 2028 Olympic Games in September, the French capital will not be in the running for the latter

Liverpool draw one of my proudest days, says Pep Guardiola – video

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says the 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Sunday was one of his proudest days as a coach, having turned around from a disappointed exit from the Champions League last week. Guardiola also jokingly brushes off suggestions that he should more effectively coach his players on how to finish goal-scoring opportunities

‘I’d rather win Europa League than finish fourth in the league,’ says José Mourinho – video

Manchester United manager José Mourinho admits that he would prefer to win the Europa League than finish fourth in the Premier League this season, as his team move to fifth after a 3-1 win at Middlesborough on Sunday. Mourinho praises the attitude of his team, who were missing many first choice players

Arséne Wenger promises decision on his Arsenal future ‘soon’ – video

Arsenal manager Arséne Wenger says he will soon make a decision on his future at the club, following a 3-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. Arsenal have lost four of their last five league games, and face losing out on Champions League qualification next year

Middlesbrough v Manchester United: match preview

So there will be no warm reunion between the visiting José Mourinho and his former Real Madrid sidekick Aitor Karanka, after all, the Basque having parted company with Boro on Thursday. Instead Steve Agnew is auditioning for the job of keeping Boro in the top tier and could do with choreographing a first league win since mid-December. To that end he can only hope United are fatigued in the wake of their Thursday night Europa League exertions. Louise Taylor

Kick-off Sunday noon

Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton: match preview

For Tottenham, this is the start of another spell without Harry Kane. The last time he was unavailable, they won two out of five in the league, drawing the other three but it still felt as though he was badly missed. Would a similar run now be enough to keep them in pole position for a Champions League finish? Southampton’s top gun is fit and firing – Manolo Gabbiadini has six goals in four matches since his arrival from Napoli. David Hytner

Kick-off Sunday 2.15pm

Manchester City v Liverpool: match preview

Manchester City have lost 1-0, 3-0, 4-1, and 2-1 in their past four Premier League games against Liverpool so have to reach back to August 2014 for their last win, 3-1 at the Etihad. Now is the time for Pep Guardiola’s side to end this sequence as, firstly, they have just suffered a Champions League elimination and, secondly, if City do win then the gap to Liverpool grows to four points with a match in hand. Jamie Jackson

Kick-off Sunday 4pm

Everton v Hull City: match preview

Amid Romelu Lukaku’s contract stand-off Everton will still be confident of earning a win that would temporarily move Ronald Koeman’s side above Manchester United in sixth place. Hull overcame Merseyside opponents with a 2-0 win over Liverpool in February and Marco Silva’s side will need a similarly robust display to take anything away from Goodison Park, where the hosts have lost just once all season in the league.

Stoke City v Chelsea: match preview

Despite the growing inevitability of the title returning to west London, Antonio Conte will not allow standards to slip as his Chelsea side aim to be crowned champions sooner rather than later. Conte will be wary of the challenge on Saturday having been pushed hard before winning 4-2 at Stamford Bridge on New Years’s Eve against a Stoke side unbeaten in their past eight home games.

Sunderland v Burnley: match preview

David Moyes will hope Jermain Defoe celebrates his richly deserved England recall with a goal or two in what surely is a must-win game if Sunderland are to stay up. Burnley, though, are anxious to register a first away win and will sense opportunity at the home of their bottom-placed hosts. Moyes’s plan for Jan Kirchhoff to play a role has been dashed, the influential midfielder has been ruled out for another four weeks. Louise Taylor

West Bromwich Albion v Arsenal: match preview

Arsène Wenger will be hoping to improve on his head-to-head record of just one win in seven away fixtures against Tony Pulis when Arsenal visit the Hawthorns. The Frenchman’s side arrive after a bruising run of three defeats in their past four league matches and at risk of being cut adrift from the top-four. West Brom, however, were complacent against Everton last weekend and will need to be much more focused to avoid defeat today. Joel Rabinowitz

Bournemouth v Swansea City: match preview

Bournemouth are in danger of being drawn into a relegation scrap, while Swansea continue their own bid to escape the drop. Josh King’s hat-trick in a chaotic encounter with West Ham gave Eddie Howe’s side their first league win of 2017 last weekend following an eight-game barren streak. Swansea have lost their past three away matches, since winning at Anfield, and travel without key full-backs Kyle Naughton and Martin Olsson. Joel Rabinowitz

West Ham United v Leicester City: match preview

Atlético Madrid can wait. Leicester City cannot afford to take their eye off the ball in the Premier League. Three points above the bottom three, they remain in a relegation fight despite reaching the Champions League quarter-finals thanks to Tuesday’s win over Sevilla. Craig Shakespeare will be confident of extending his winning start and West Ham United’s indifferent recent form means a fourth straight win for Leicester could be on the cards. Jacob Steinberg

Crystal Palace v Watford: match preview

It is five years to the day since Crystal Palace last beat Watford at Selhurst Park and, given the precarious nature of their position and the fact they face the top six in their remaining fixtures, Sam Allardyce’s side must surely emulate the class of 2012 if they are to survive this time round. Successive wins and clean sheets have given them heart but Patrick van Aanholt’s absence is a blow. Watford have won once away from home since mid-October but are within touching distance of safety and can tap into their hosts’ anxieties. Dominic Fifield

Kick-off Saturday 3pm
