Tennis is ‘just a game’, says Nick Kyrgios before Cincinnati final – video

Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has given his honest thoughts on tennis and where it fits in his life, saying that it is ‘just a game’. Kyrgios said he would rather be remembered for being a person who was kind to others than for being ‘an unbelievable tennis player’. Kyrgios was speaking after his win over David Ferrer in the semi-finals of the Cincinnati Masters. He faces Grigor Dimitrov in the final

We used our chance and I’m delighted, says Huddersfield’s David Wagner – video

David Wagner, speaking after his Huddersfield side extended their 100% record in the Premier League with a 1-0 home win against Newcastle, said he was delighted that they had taken their chances and not had a ‘lucky’ win. His opposing manager, Rafael Benítez, bemoaned his team’s wasteful finishing

It’s not offside at all, says Arsène Wenger after Lacazette goal ruled out – video

After his Arsenal side’s 1-0 defeat away at Stoke City, Arsène Wenger complained about the disallowed goal from Alexandre Lacazette, ruled out for offside after the Frenchman slotted it into the net. Wenger went on to hint at a perceived bias against Arsenal by referees, implying that it was no coincidence that his side concedes many penalties and is awarded few

Manchester United are full of confidence, says José Mourinho – video

José Mourinho has said that his Manchester United team is playing with confidence after their 4-0 win away at Swansea in Saturday’s early kick-off. The Swans manager Paul Clement defended his tactics, making it clear that he’s not interested in damage limitation, and wanted to try to get back into the game rather than sit back and keep the scoreline respectable

Huddersfield Town v Newcastle United: match preview

For their first home match in the top flight since 1972, Huddersfield host Newcastle, who won 3-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium in last season’s Championship. David Wagner’s team are much stronger since then, whereas Newcastle might not be, especially with Jonjo Shelvey suspended and Florian Lejeune out injured. Following last weekend’s win at Crystal Palace, Huddersfield fans will be confident of extending their triumphant start to their Premier League era. Paul Doyle

Kick-off Sunday 1.30pm

Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea: match preview

Antonio Conte will be been forced to make changes after last week’s disastrous 3-2 home defeat by Burnley – Gary Cahill and Cesc Fàbregas are both suspended after being sent off. Victor Moses is back following a ban but the Chelsea manager will also be hoping Pedro and summer signing Tiémoué Bakayoko come through fitness tests otherwise his squad, with 26 players out on loan, will be stretched to the limit.

Manchester City v Everton: match preview

After the convincing 2-0 win at Brighton in the campaign opener, Manchester City face a sterner test in Everton. Pep Guardiola’s default system may now be a back three which is why the West Bromwich Albion central defender Jonny Evans is being pursued. The last time City faced Ronald Koeman’s side they suffered a 4-0 defeat at Goodison Park. The corresponding home league game was a 1-1 draw City dominated, so the manager will hope that match, not January’s reverse, is an augury of Monday’s meeting. Jamie Jackson

Kick-off Monday 8pm

Stoke City v Arsenal: match preview

Stoke City’s recruitment of Jesé Rodríguez on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain means Mark Hughes now has five Champions League winners in his squad, more than any other Premier League club. The winger is expected to be involved at some stage against Arsenal, 4-1 winners here in May and eager to secure a return to Europe’s elite club competition after finishing fifth last season.

Burnley v West Bromwich Albion: match preview

Burnley have never made a better start to a Premier League campaign, or perhaps any campaign. It took them 18 games to win away last season and now they have recorded one at the first attempt, at the home of the champions, no less. Expectations will be high at Turf Moor but Tony Pulis’s side are unlikely to fall apart like Chelsea. The two sides appear evenly matched, and while Albion’s away form is not great either, it would not be an enormous surprise to see the points shared, as happened last season when Burnley came back down to earth after their win at Crystal Palace.

Bournemouth v Watford: match preview

Eddie Howe will be looking for a reaction from his side after an underwhelming performance in the 1-0 defeat by West Bromwich Albion last weekend. Jermain Defoe could make his first start for Bournemouth since May 2001 and Jordon Ibe may return to the starting lineup. “We need to get our momentum going and get our tempo going and if we can do that then hopefully we will get a result,” Howe said. Watford, who drew 3-3 with Liverpool in their entertaining season opener, should have their captain, Troy Deeney, available following groin surgery. Ben Fisher

Swansea City v Manchester United: match preview

Everything fell into place for Manchester United against West Ham last Sunday and it will be a surprise if José Mourinho’s team fail to pick up another three points . Mourinho’s only real selection dilemma revolves around whether he should set up a bit more conservatively away from home and recall Ander Herrera. As for Swansea, they are still without Fernando Llorente, who is building up his fitness after breaking an arm. Roque Mesa could make his debut in place of Leon Britton, who is struggling with a back problem. Stuart James

Liverpool v Crystal Palace: match preview

Crystal Palace can become only the fourth visiting team in history to win four successive league games at Anfield but it will take a major transformation from the opening day to achieve that feat. A 3-0 home defeat by newly-promoted Huddersfield Town represented a galling start for new manager, Frank de Boer, who also lost Wilfried Zaha to injury, while Liverpool will be looking to build on a valuable Champions League play-off win at Hoffenheim on Tuesday. That exhausting first leg may prompt changes by Jürgen Klopp ahead of next week’s return, though his options appear limited. Andy Hunter

Southampton v West Ham United: match preview

Mauricio Pellegrino has few injury concerns for a fixture that has been switched to St Mary’s with the London Stadium not ready after the world championships. Ryan Bertrand has recovered from a knock, while Cedric Soares should start despite reported interest from Chelsea. Southampton are under new ownership and insist that Virgil van Dijk will stay, although the Dutchman remains unavailable for this game. For West Ham, Michail Antonio is fit again after four months out with a hamstring injury. Slaven Bilic will be targeting defensive improvement against a team without a home goal in six league games.

Klopp praises Alexander-Arnold after Liverpool win – video

Jürgen Klopp hailed teenager Trent Alexander-Arnold after Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Hoffenheim on Tuesday evening. The 18-year-old gave the Reds the lead with a stunning free-kick after 35 minutes in the Champions League qualifier. Liverpool will take a 2-1 advantage back to Anfield for the second leg next week
