Stay up to date with all the latest from around the grounds…
Maguire boost
Harry Maguire is ready for a Manchester United return to boost his England World Cup prospects.
United’s captain has been out for a month since injuring his hamstring during the Three Lions’ 3-3 Nations League draw with Germany.
But defender Maguire will be back in full training this week after missing the last seven games.
And his recovery could not come at a better time for boss Erik ten Hag after fellow defender Raphael Varane damaged a hamstring at Chelsea on Saturday.
England manager Gareth Southgate will be delighted to see Maguire, 29, in Qatar.
But Frenchman Varane was in tears and is likely to miss next month’s tournament.
Zaha talks
Crystal Palace will hold talks with Wilfried Zaha over a new long-term contract, which will be a blow to Arsenal and Chelsea – who have been linked to the star.
That is according to Palace manager Patrick Vieira, who is adamant Zaha, 29, won't be leaving for free in June when his contract runs out.
Vieira said: "Wilfried knows what the club think about him, and we know what he thinks about the club.
"There will be discussions taking place [over a new contract] but for myself and for the club what is important is for him to play at this level and to be consistent and to help those young players around him to grow and we will see what will happen.
"If Wilfried Zaha has a good day, the team will have a good day.
"He’s an important player on and off the field, he’s got the experience and today he was really good in possession and out of possession he worked really hard."
Stones expecting
England ace John Stones is expecting a World Cup baby with his entrepreneur girlfriend.
The Man City centre-back, 28, is expected to be named in the Three Lions squad for Qatar.
And he could be lifting more than the Jules Rimet trophy if Gareth Southgate’s boys win it.
Stones’ partner, Olivia Naylor, 33 — who has just launched her children’s clothing brand, Moosh — is due to give birth to their first child together towards the end of December.
Harsh sending off
Villarreal star Alex Baena was brutally sent off after lifting his shirt to pay an emotional tribute to the club's late vice-president, Jose Manuel Llaneza.
Llaneza, who passed away after a battle with leukemia earlier this week, was one of the driving forces behind Villarreal's growth over the past three decades.
The club has even announced that a space has been set up in the town hall where fans can pay their respects to Llaneza.
Villarreal took on Almeria at home on Sunday and fell behind after 31 minutes.
But the Yellow Submarine got themselves back on level terms through Baena in the second half.
The midfielder, who was already on a booking, lifted his shirt revealing a message of thanks to Llaneza.
Cover boy Mount
Mason Mount has been dubbed "Britain's most eligible bachelor" as the Chelsea star posed on the front cover of Tatler Magazine.
The Blues and England midfielder, 23, is forging a career in modelling and has given fans a rare insight into his love life.
Stamford Bridge's golden boy got suited and booted for the front cover shoot while revealing he doesn't have time to date due to his commitment to football.
Mount was in a relationship with model Chloe Wealleans-Watts, 23, who he met back in 2017.
The pair have split but it is not known when they went their separate ways.
When asked about his relationship status, Mount told Tatler: "Football is my priority."
Spurs could bid for Bastoni
Tottenham could make a bid for Inter Milan star Alessandro Bastoni, reports suggest.
Bastoni, 23, rose to prominence with the Serie A giants while under current Spurs boss Conte.
According to Inter Live, the North Londoners could make a €50million (£43m) offer for the centre-back during the January transfer window.
Transfer insider Dean Jones, previously stated that the Italy international would be a “dream signing” for Tottenham manager Conte and chief Fabio Paratici.
However, Spurs could face competition as the 23-year-old is also being monitored by both Manchester United and Manchester City.

Guimaraes baby joy
Newcastle star Bruno Guimaraes hasn't slept for TWO DAYS after welcoming the birth of his first child and then beating Spurs in the Premier League.
The 24-year-old Brazilian's fiance Ana Lidia Martins gave birth to their first child, Matteo, on Friday night.
He told Sky Sports: "They've been amazing days for me, to become a father for the first time. It's been incredible. I've had two days without sleep.
"I would stay home but I love to be here with these guys. They make me happy and proud, and I think we deserved it today.
"It was one of the best days of my life [Matteo's birth]. I'm very happy and proud. It's been like a dream. I don't have words because it's amazing what has happened in my life.
"I say thanks to my family. It's been difficult but it's all worth it."

Newcastle join Trossard race
Newcastle have joined Chelsea in the chase for Brighton main man Leandro Trossard, according to reports.
The Belgian, 27, is having a breakout campaign in front of goal, scoring six and assisting two in the Premier League.
However, his contract with the Seagulls is up at the end of the season meaning he can agree a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January.
He can also wait until the summer to join a Prem team on a free transfer.
An option for Brighton to avoid losing Trossard for free is sanctioning a sale in January.
And according to transfer expert Graeme Bailey, on the Talking Transfers podcast, Newcastle will rival Chelsea for Trossard's signature and have named the amount they'd be willing to spend.
Schmeichel booed by fans
Nice keeper Kasper Schmeichel was booed by his own fans ahead of their clash with Nantes on Sunday evening.
The Dane, 35, left Leicester to join the French outfit in the summer after more than a decade at the King Power Stadium.
But he has endured a nightmare first few months at the club.
And when his name was read out before their home match with Nantes, the shot-stopper was booed by his own supporters.
They then proceeded to cheer substitute keeper Marcin Bulka in a pointed gesture to replace Schmeichel.
Nice went on to draw the game 1-1 as a stoppage-time Nicolas Pepe penalty salvaged a point for Nice.
Peep peep!
Newcastle hold on to get all three points.
Big blow for Spurs, as the Toon go into the top four with a stunning win.
Tottenham couldn't find an equaliser in that second half, after getting back into it with Kane.
It finishes Spurs 1-2 Newcastle.
Liverpool chase Moukoko
Liverpool will face competition in their pursuit of signing Youssoufa Moukoko, according to reports.
The Borussia Dortmund starlet, 17, is being tracked by a host of top clubs.
But The Reds are the best positioned to land him, according to Spanish outlet Sport.
They report this despite interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, and from Paris Saint-Germain.
Jurgen Klopp's interest in the attacker is said to be quite acute, with him being impressed by his younger compatriot's performances.
While he has mostly appeared off the bench for his club this season, Moukoko has still returned a stellar goal record.
Spurs are back in it!
And, of course, it's that man Harry Kane who has given them a lifeline.
Will Conte's side get an equaliser?
Newcastle are really taking the game to Spurs.
This time it's Miguel Almiron with a superb finish from a tight angle.
Conte is livid, Spurs have it all to do now.
Newcastle have taken the lead against Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
A VAR check rules that Callum Wilson didn't impede Hugo Lloris, who was in no man's land.
Wilson looped his effort brilliantly over Lloris from 30 yards.
Arteta can’t hide disappointment
Mikel Arteta believes Arsenal should have got more than a point at St Mary’s.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the Spaniard was asked if he was asked if he was unhappy with the draw.
He replied: “Yes I am, especially with the big chances we created.”
Piers Morgan reminds us
Despite dropping two points at the St Mary’s, they are still two points clear of Man City.
And Sun columnist Piers Morgan has tweeted the same sentiment.

Arsenal held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton
It has FINISHED at St Mary's Stadium and Southampton have taken two points from Arsenal.
The Gunners still lead the top flight but they have only stretched their lead at the top to two points.
Valverde scores long-distance screamer for Real
Real Madrid star Federico Valverde scored an incredible long-range goal in his side's win over Sevilla.
The Uruguayan midfielder was outside the box on the right-hand side when he received the ball from Marco Asensio, took one touch and fired into the top corner from distance.
Valverde's right-footed strike left Sevilla goalkeeper Bono rooted to the spot as he scored the last goal of the game making it 3-1 to the LaLiga table toppers.
Watch it HERE.

Burnley fast-track wonderkid 17-year-old keeper Casper
Burnley fast-tracked goalkeeper Charlie Casper into their first-team squad training group — at the age of just 17.
Highly-rated Casper is the grandson of former Turf Moor boss Frank and steeped in Clarets tradition, with his rise catching the eye.
Casper may go out on loan this season to keep up his rapid improvement.
The youngster is yet to feature in a matchday squad but Vincent Kompany did bring him along on the short trip to Preston last month.
Casper was delighted to be involved, writing on Instagram: "Great experience with the first team last night ⚽️"

Chelsea look to pinch Ronaldo in January
Sunday World report that Chelsea are also looking to pounce on the opportunity and join the race for the unsettled veteran.
As revealed by SunSport in the summer, Blues owner Boehly is a huge fan of Ronaldo.
At the time, boss Thomas Tuchel still needed convincing to press ahead with a move but now Graeme Potter is in charge at Stamford Bridge.
£14m bid was being touted back then however Old Trafford bosses may take whatever they can to ship him off.
Could United salvage anything for Ron?
Old Trafford’s money men insisted Ronaldo, who wanted Champions League football, would only be allowed to go on their terms…and that meant a fee of up to £20m.
Now, though, they have the option of his leaving for nothing, if a vastly reduced severance package was also part of the deal.
It would almost certainly be the case if Ronaldo, who will be 38 in February, decided on America as his next destination.
David Beckham’s Inter Miami are keen on signing him, but although they are confident of meeting his personal terms, a transfer fee on top would make it difficult.
Yet with Ronaldo clearly having reached the end of the road at Old Trafford, there is growing belief a deal can be done after all.
United could fork out £10m to ditch Ron if no one wants to sign him
Man Utd could have to fork out almost £10 million if they want to get Cristiano Ronaldo off the books in January.
Ronaldo was axed for yesterday's trip to Chelsea, amid claims he refused to come off the bench in last week’s win over Spurs and looks sure to have played his last game for the club.
Yet if United hope to get rid before his contract expires at the end of the season, they are staring at a pay-off touching eight figures.
Ronaldo would earn around £9.6m in basic wages until June, regardless of any bonus payments for league placings or trophies.
But United do have some wriggle room – not least the option of tearing up his deal if he did indeed refuse to come on as a substitute and was deemed to be in breach of contract.
There is also the bargaining chip of letting him join another club for a knockdown fee or even a free – something they stood firm on last summer.
Agbonlahor slams ‘Mr Mentality Monster' Klopp
Gabby Agbonlahor has continued his feud with "Mentality Monster" Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool fell to a 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest.
Ex-Reds striker Taiwo Awoniyi scored the winner to help Forest to their second Premier League win of the season.
And with Liverpool continuing to lose ground on their league rivals – currently sat 11 points behind table-toppers Arsenal – Agbonlahor has ripped into Klopp, questioning whether the "Mentality Monster" German only gets his team up for home games.
Speaking on TalkSport's Gameday Phone-In, Agbonlahor said: "Mr Mentality Monster, Jurgen, five games away from home without a win this season – can he only get them up for home games at a full Anfield?
"Can he not get his 'mentality monster' team up for away games? Because today was shocking from Liverpool.
"Every player apart from Alisson was below a five out of ten today."
Rooney returns to HQ
Wayne Rooney set tongues wagging when he turned up at Manchester United’s training HQ in a club tracksuit.
But the real reason for the Old Trafford legend’s flying visit was to watch his lads Kai, 12, and Klay, 9, training with United’s academy.
DC United boss Roo was back in the UK following the end of his club’s MLS season.
The former England international's American outfit finished bottom of the Eastern Conference with just seven wins from 34 matches – although Rooney did not take over until July.
But he is now enjoying the off-season as he watched his boys follow in his footsteps.
