  3. Post update

    Arsenal v Fulham (Sat, 17:30 BST)


    Mikel Arteta has also confirmed he has a near fully fit squad for Fulham.

    Reiss Nelson, who was already out injured, is the only unavailable player.

  4. 'Pepe needed minutes'

    Arsenal v Fulham (Sat, 17:30 BST)


    Mikel Arteta has said Nicolas Pepe's loan move to Nice was "the best decision for everybody".

    On whether Pepe was weighed down by his price-tag (he joined Arsenal for a club-record £72m in 2019):

    "I don’t know, Nico has tried to do that in the best possible way. He is not responsible for the price a club pays for him.

    "He has tried to everything. His attitude, the way he is phenomenal, you have to meet the person and you have to love him for the way he is.”

    “He needed minutes he has been craving minutes.”

  5. 'Time flies'

    Arsenal v Fulham (Sat, 17:30 BST)


    The Fulham game will be Mikel Arteta's 100th Premier League match as Arsenal boss. Here's what he had to say about that:

    “I just found out two minutes ago. Time flies. Such a privilege to be at this club and reach this number. Hopefully we can extend that for a long period and bring joy and a lot of wins.”

    On what he has learned:

    “How difficult and how beautiful life is when you win or lose. Especially that. Looking back and analysing the journey. Every decision counts. Consistency is so important. Do what you believe in because at the end it will happen.”

    "We are human beings. We doubt especially when you lose football matches when the environment turns around and you don’t find the real way to win matches even though sometimes you deserve too.

    "Sometimes trying to find otherwise to adapt. You have to adapt and feel what you do to transmit it to your players, supporters and everyone around the club at all times.”

  6. Arteta coming up


    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been speaking this morning ahead of tomorrow's game against Fulham and this afternoon's Europa League draw.

    Updates from the Spaniard's news conference are on the way...

  7. 'We need bodies through the door'

    Liverpool v Bournemouth (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Scott Parker will need to check on ex-Liverpool forward Dominic Solanke (ankle) before Saturday's trip to Liverpool but will definitely be without Ryan Fredericks (calf), Joe Rothwell (quad) and Junior Stanislas (groin).

    With the transfer deadline next Thursday, the 41-year-old is hopeful of adding to his squad.

    "We need bodies through the door, for sure.

    "It has been pretty tricky for many reasons, for many circumstances, so I'm hoping and everyone is hoping."

  8. Post update

    Liverpool v Bournemouth (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Bournemouth boss Scott Parker on Liverpool's poor start to the season.

    "I am sure they will be the first to know it has not gone how they wanted it to go but we're playing against a world-class team, a well-coached team, an exceptional manager and against a team who are probably looking for a reaction.

    "This is one of the hardest places to go, Anfield, and even more so in the current situation it could be very difficult.

    "As always it is a challenge for us to face and we need to try and get something out of this game."

  9. Parker on the way


    We're edging closer to the Europa League group stage draw at 12:00 BST, but first we're going to hear from another Premier League manager in Scott Parker.

    The Bournemouth boss has been speaking ahead of his side's trip to Liverpool tomorrow.

  11. 'Everton need two strikers at least'

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Former Everton captain Alan Stubbs says the club need to sign at least two strikers to "lift" the fans.

    Stubbs told BBC Radio Merseyside:

    "It's all about building confidence. Forest were pretty average. A half-decent Everton could have won comfortably.

    "It's always difficult when you haven't got a striker. They need to address that situation as soon as possible.

    "It's the fourth week since Calvert-Lewin was injured and still no one is in the door. Everton fans are rightly asking questions.

    "The manager needs two strikers in at least, a playmaker, a number 10 to link it up. They have to have a really strong end to the window.

    "I'd like a new striker to have Premier League experience because they need to hit the ground running. We can't wait for someone to take a month or two to get up to speed. If you don't get some momentum going, the Premier League takes no prisoners. They don't want to be embroiled in the position they were last season.

    "Defensively they're not far away. In midfield Alex Iwobi has been a revelation. It's just the forward areas. The fans need a lift. It was a bit flat on Saturday. The board need to up their game in the final days of the window."

  12. Calvert-Lewin to train next week - Lampard

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard offers his team news update ahead of tomorrow's trip to Brentford.

    "Tom Davies we hope is in contention. He had a small feeling in his groin before the Fleetwood game and pulled out of that game.

    "He'll hopefully be in the squad. Abdoulaye Doucoure is injured. Dominic Calvert-Lewin will train next week.

    "Other than that, pretty much the same as where we were going into Fleetwood but got minutes into some players who are returning from injury or lacking fitness.

    On Calvert-Lewin

    "He’s slightly ahead of schedule, we must be calm, we can't push him at this stage.

    "He's working really hard out on grass. Will he be available for Liverpool next week? That will tough, but we can look at the games after that hopefully if all goes to plan."

  13. Post update

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard wants Everton's recruitment to be completed much earlier in the years ahead.

    "I hope that the powers that be understand that this isn't the perfect way to do it.

    "It's far too long into the season, there's no doubt. We want to look at the season with a balance, so we can construct a squad from the start of the season to the end.

    "Now, we're going to be, by the time the window shuts, nigh on six games in and for me that doesn't feel right and I hope they get that right next time."

  14. Lampard hopes to see Alli flourish at Besiktas

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard on Dele Alli joining Besiktas on loan.

    "I think it's the right thing. I think it hasn't worked out for Dele here for different reasons. And can go there now hopefully, play games, and have success.

    "It will help him personally help us and we'll review it through the year and obviously at the end of the season."

  15. Chelsea have not bid £60m for Gordon - Lampard

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard also says Chelsea have not bid £60m for striker Anthony Gordon.

    "No, hasn't come in. He's our player so he's in the squad for tomorrow. He's a huge player for us.

    "I said it last week not only is he a big value for the club. If you want to talk financially, but more importantly for me a big value to the squad and the team.

    "They haven't bid £60m."

  16. Lampard on attacking options

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Everton boss Frank Lampard on how he would feel if the club fail to sign a striker before the deadline.

    "It will happen. And we have Dominic Calvert Lewin coming back, as I say so but it's an area that we're well aware of.

    "Then the last thing we wanted to do is the last thing that we should do, is bring a player in on a whim or in a rush, there's not going to improve the squad, now and generally and I think those those are clear things if there have been any mistakes previously, we don't want to make those.

    "We want to work together joined up to make sure we make the right decisions for the club in the right areas, and it's really important that we do that."

  17. Everton close to signing Maupay

    BBC Sport

    Everton are close to signing Brighton forward Neal Maupay.

    Manager Frank Lampard is keen on bringing in attacking reinforcements after losing Richarlison to Tottenham in the summer and an early-season injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

    In his Friday press conference, Lampard would not confirm if Maupay was due to arrive at Goodison.

    But when asked if there would be signings in attack by the end of the window, he told BBC Sport: "It will happen."

    Maupay has scored 26 goals in 102 appearances for Brighton, having signed for the Seagulls in 2019 for £16m from Brentford.

  20. Your thoughts on Isak's fee

    Newcastle United

    Neil: Isak looked really promising in the Euros but I think £60m is excessive, £30m would be the top they should have to pay. We need some more striking options that’s for sure, I just hope that Newcastle aren’t taken for a ride due to their new-found wealth.

    Tom: Not sure how Isak can be considered too much with Anthony Gordon being sold for more! The market is crazy but there is a going rate right now; judging by the above it doesn't look like a bad deal where I'm sitting!

    William: I think that £60m is way too much for Isak. However Joelinton was a lot and is great. We need to strengthen up front and the only way to do that is with money.
