    Video caption: Nothing is impossible – Howe on relegation battle

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe says “nothing is impossible” as his side head into the final three games of the season in the Premier League relegation zone.

  2. ‘We need a decision’

    Newcastle v Tottenham (18:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle boss Steve Bruce: “We’re without six or seven and that’s too big a number, it has taken its toll on us. You’ll have to see what we’re trying to do with the team. But we are not alone with that, that’s why we have a squad. It gives people an opportunity.”

    Any takeover news Steve?“All I can do is carry on, we are planning to be as normal [for next season] and if something happens…we need a decision for everyone’s sake.

    “I do think having the five subs for next year benefits the bigger clubs but I can understand the reasoning of it. I would have stuck with three subs.”

  3. Team news

    Man City v Bournemouth (18:00 BST)

    Manchester Citymake six changes from the side that thrashed Brighton on Saturday.

    John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi are back in the centre of defence, meaning Pep Guardiola can use Fernandinho as a holding midfielder again, as he did in last week’s defeat by Southampton.

    Ilkay Gundogan and David Silva also return in midfield, with Phil Foden joining Jesus and Bernardo Silva in City’s attack.

    Eric Garcia, Aymeric Laporte, Rodri, Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez all drop to the bench, as does Raheem Sterling – who with 27 goals in all competitions is the leading scorer in English club football this season.

    Man City XI:Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Stones, Mendy, Fernandinho, Rodri, David Silva, Foden, Jesus, Bernardo Silva

    Bournemouthmake four changes as they look to build on their astonishing comeback win over Leicester.

    At the back Steve Cook comes in for Nathan Ake, who was injured in that win over the Foxes which breathed new life into the Cherries’ survival bid.

    In midfield, Philip Billing and Junior Stanislas replace Arnaut Groeneveld and David Brooks on the flanks, while up front, Joshua King has recovered from a hamstring problem and replaces Callum Wilson.

    Bournemouth XI:Ramsdale, Stacey, Cook, Kelly, Rico, Stanislas, Gosling, Lerma, Groeneveld, King, Solanke

  4. ‘We support Serge’s decision’

    Newcastle v Tottenham (18:00 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: “Three points against Arsenal keep us in the fight for the Europa League, we have three matches left and we need points.

    “We are a Champions League club but this season went in the wrong direction from day one for many different reasons. The Europa League would be good for us in the end.

    “Serge Aurier – we would awlays support his decision. Every person has different ways to face tragedies like this one and he asked to play. Tomorrow he goes to France to see his mum.”

    Burnley won this fixture 2-0 at Turf Moor last season, but that is their only top-flight home victory against Wolves since 1963 (D4, L5).

    Sean Dyche’s first match as Burnley manager was a 2-0 home win versus Wolves in the Championship in November 2012. Ben Mee started that game, while fellow defender Kevin Long was on the bench.

  6. Team news

    Newcastle v Tottenham (18:00 BST)

    Newcastle make three changes from the side who lost 2-1 to Watford on Saturday.

    Defender Jamaal Lascelles is injured, Danny Rose is ineligible against his parent club and Javier Manquillo is benched. DeAndre Yedlin, Emil Krafth and Nabil Bentaleb take their places.

  9. BreakingAurier starts

    Newcastle v Tottenham (18:00 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Serge Aurier starts for an unchanged Spurs – his younger brother Christopherwas killed in France over the weekend.

    Newcastle are without defender Jamaal Lascelles who picked up an injury against Watford. Also missing are Javier Manquillo and on-loan Spurs man Danny Rose. DeAndre Yedlin, Emil Krafth and Nabil Bentaleb all come in.

    tsuelong:Top 4 same as they are today. Leicester squeak through on goal difference, perhaps even at +1.

  12. Two big games on 5 live

  13. ‘Kane being fed off scraps’

    Newcastle v Tottenham (18:00 BST)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Ex-Liverpool defender

    Newcastle have lost their past two games, against Manchester City and Watford, and they are safe in mid-table with not a great deal to play for.

    Tottenham won the north London derby at the weekend, but to say it was a unconvincing victory is probably the fairest way of summing it up.

    Spurs have got a lot of work to do if they want to get nearer the top two next season, but with Harry Kane in their side, they always carry a goal threat.

    The worry there is that someone might come in for Kane and say to him ‘look, come and play for a team who try to win games’ because I don’t imagine playing up front for Spurs is too much fun at the moment – he is being fed off scraps.

    Plus, we have seen before with Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick that, if players want to leave and a big enough offer is received, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is willing to sell.

    Prediction:0-2

  14. ‘We have something to play for’

    Newcastle v Tottenham (18:00 BST)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham forward Son Heung-min:“Of course we have something to play for, we are always playing for three points. It is going to be a tough game.

    “The players are still not comfortable with the empty stadiums, we are playing so many games but we are ready. I hope we can bring a good performance.”

  15. City to bag a few more?

    Man City v Bournemouth (18:00 BST)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Ex-Liverpool defender

    Bournemouth’s win over Leicester on Sunday was such a strange game. Leicester looked in control at 1-0 up at half-time, but self-imploded after the break.

    I don’t see the Cherries’ revival continuing at Etihad Stadium, though. Manchester City have hit five goals in each of their past two games, and I think they will bag a few more here.

    Prediction:4-0

  16. Post update

    Newcastle v Tottenham (18:00 BST)

    Some excellent, anxious scenes at Newcastle as Jan Vertonghen can’t find his phone which he needs to scan into the building. Had to do the whole ‘lost-your-passport-at-the-airport’ procedure of putting his washbag on the wall, having a good rummage, emptying everything out.

    ‘It’s in here somewhere.’ A horrible wave of embarrassment. Thankfully he’s in after a bit of a delay.

    The Championship is a mad league, highlighted by Wigan’s stunning 8-0 win against Hull last night. Seven of those goals came in an incredible first half.

    A fantastic result for Wigan as they look to survive relegation – even with the threat of a 12-point deduction for going into administration – but a night every Hull fan will hope to forget very, very quickly.

    Premier League champions Liverpool and Manchester City, who will definitely finish second, have already booked their place in next season’s Champions League.

    Chelsea, Leicester and Manchester United are probably battling it out for the final two Champions League group stage spots – although Wolves, Sheffield United and Tottenham could all qualify mathematically.

    Both Wolves and Tottenham can ill afford to slip up tonight to retain their hopes of playing in Europe’s premier club competition next season.
