Fantasy Premier League managers were rewarded for selecting a host of Arsenal players. One to keep an eye on in the Championship will be in Derbyshire, with Derby County hosting Wolverhampton Wanderers, two clubs with big promotion ambitions.

Can Pep and Jose Lead Second-Year Surges? I'm Oliver Emmerson, and I'll be taking you through the afternoon's action in the Premier League and elsewhere, after Watford's fixture against Liverpool, following the scores through the afternoon until Brighton and Hove Albion host Manchester City later on.

The current champion of England "Chelsea" ambiguous job in the transfer market.

Mourinho and Guardiola have each received ample financial backing from their clubs, now it's time for these world-class manager to deliver on the pitch. It also claims that both the clubs have already held the preliminary talks about a potential £90m move.

As for the Toffees, Everton have had a very busy summer. Of the three, only the Swedish defender failed to impress in pre-season. Manchester City finished third last season in the Barclays Premier League with 78 points on the table and 23 wins out of 38 matches.

Striker Romelu Lukaku cost at least £75 million, while Mourinho offloaded captain Wayne Rooney to Everton. His pace and power will be a hard proposition for any defender in the Premier League but he would need to work on his build-up play and first-touch, which was a matter of concern for the big Belgian in previous seasons.

The Thai consulate in Los Angeles is in touch with the victim's families, as well as officials working on recovery efforts. The consulate has expressed frustration for how long the recovery has taken.

The 36-year-old scored 28 goals during his debut season with the club and was expected to sign a new one-year deal before the injury complicated matters.

If they want to get back to title contention - or even a top-four finish - they'll need Alexis Sanchez in the side.

But with Real unlikely to get the kind of fee they want for Bale it looks like he will stay in the Spanish capital. He has been at City since age 6, and was selected on the bench for the Champions League game against Celtic in December. Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United team of 2008/09 was the last side to remain at the top of the pile for two successive seasons.

Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws the highest in the league and the team had more wins away than at Old Trafford.

A battering-ram striker in the finest Mourinho traditions, Lukaku's task is to sharpen an attack that mustered only 54 league goals last season. With only four spots up for grabs (not counting Arsenal being able to qualify via the Europa League), someone is going to be disappointed.
