Manchester United fans will be scrambling for tickets after Sir Alex Ferguson announced a series of interviews to be conducted in theatres nationwide.

The former manager will take to the stage with top journalists in Salford, Glasgow, Dublin, Aberdeen and London with tickets going on sale tomorrow morning.

Francis Coquelin insists he is not thinking about his future with Arsenal after moving to SC Freiburg on a season long loan.

The Frenchman says he has "put Arsenal aside" and is concentrating on playing as often as possible for the Bundesliga outfit.

Aleksandar Kolarov admits Manchester City have been defensively poor so far this season, but has backed the team to improve.

The left-back says the team is still adapting to Manuel Pellegrini's style of play, but insists they are getting better every day.

Tottenham will be without Emmanuel Adebayor and new signing Vlad Chiriches for the visit of Norwich City this weekend.

Adebayor is yet to return from compassionate leave after the death of his brother whilst Andre Villas-Boas revealed there are still issues to be resolved with Chiriches's work permit.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku will be unable to make his Everton debut this weekend as Premier League rules forbid loaned players from playing against parent clubs.

Lukaku moved to Goodison Park in a deadline day loan deal, but will have to wait to start his Everton career as Chelsea are due to visit Merseyside this Saturday.

And finally, Juan Antonio Pizzi believes Lionel Messi is worth at least as much as the €100m Real Madrid paid for Gareth Bale.

The former Barcelona forward also believes that Messi is "one of the best players ever" and doubts his records will ever be broken.
