Brendan Rodgers employed an unfortunate phrase when confirming Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is primed to return for Wednesday's Capital One Cup clash with Manchester United.

The Liverpool manager said Suarez would be 'champing at the bit' to make his comeback at Old Trafford following a 10-match suspension for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

Pablo Zabaleta says Manchester City could have repeated their 6-1 drubbing of Manchester United had they not taken their foot off the gas in Sunday's derby victory.

City triumphed 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium, but Zabaleta believes they could have scored more were they able to maintain a greater intensity.

Tottenham have come under fire for their association with a secondary ticketing agency after it was revealed seats for the weekend clash with Chelsea are legally exchanging hands for over £1200.

Spurs are now being urged by fans to end their partnership with StubHub.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed Nicklas Bendtner will make his first Arsenal appearance in over two years in Wednesday's Capital One Cup meeting with West Brom.

Bendtner has spent the previous two seasons on loan with Sunderland and Juventus, but returns to the Arsenal side having failed to secure a permanent transfer away from the club.

Neymar's contribution to Barcelona is far greater than simply scoring goals, according to manager Gerardo Martino.

The Brazilian signed for Barca in the summer transfer window for €50 million, and Martino has hailed his all-round contribution.
