Dennis Praet fired home a cross from birthday boy Jamie Vardy to score his first goal for Leicester before Stuart Armstrong equalised for Southampton just five minutes later. Ings scored the winner after being put through on goal by Che Adams, firing beyond Kasper Schmeichel, while City's Jonny Evans had a late goal ruled out by the video assistant referee (VAR) for offside. In Saturday's lunchtime kick-off, Jordan Ayew's deflected equaliser salvaged a point for Crystal Palace in a fiesty encounter at home to Arsenal.
Cardiff had 18 shots on goal in their defeat to Forest, four being on target. Hardly any of the efforts were of note. It was the second game in a row in which they failed to register a goal. Brentford will dominate possession and create better chances. If they can withstand the route one pressure applied by Cardiff, they will win. Back the visitors to end their bogey run in Cardiff with a win.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says January signing Odion Ighalo is in contention to start the first leg of Manchester United's Europa League last-32 game against Club Bruges on Thursday. The Nigeria striker, 30, made his debut in the 2-0 win over Chelsea last weekend when he came on as substitute. I won't tell the team today but we will have to rotate with all the games coming up,\" said the United manager. He's one that could start, we've not 100% decided yet.
Flick was promoted from the coaching staff after Niko Kovac's dismissal following Bayern's 5-1 thrashing away to Eintracht Frankfurt last month. He was initially hired for two matches against Olympiakos in the Champions League and against Borussia Dortmund in the league. But after two wins he was trusted to continue until the winter break.
But amidst the euphoria on Sunday, Solskjaer was right to offer a reminder that there is still a long way to go before United can be viewed as genuine title rivals to Liverpool and City. A creative midfielder and another attacking option would give United greater potential with the ball whilst it would not be a surprise to see Solskjaer look to add another central defender to challenge Victor Lindelof for the role alongside skipper Harry Maguire.
Conceded by Jonathan Tah. Posted at 57' Corner, Borussia Dortmund. Conceded by Jonathan Tah. Posted at 57' Attempt blocked. Giovanni Reyna (Borussia Dortmund) right footed shot from the left side of the box is blocked. French forward Dembele ruptured a hamstring tendon last week and will undergo surgery next Tuesday in Finland, after which Barca will determine how long he will be out for.
The most sensible thing to do is to forget about the performance at Vicarage Road. They made uncharacteristic errors in defence, playing too high a line and being second best to the ball. Even Virgil van Dijk proved he is human after all with his defending for Watford's first two goals. The only player who enhanced his reputation was the injured Joe Gomez who the Reds sorely missed.
Is money the only reason to complete the season?Ruud Gullit: In Holland, most of the money from the TV rights has already been paid and the figures are nowhere near as big as they are in the Premier League anyway. So the clubs will not get in as much trouble without it. But, because they don't have the income from games - the revenue from fans who are buying beer and all these kind of things - that is something they are going to miss.

Will United really cough up more than £100m in January for the duo? It seems unlikely. Bale happy at Real Gareth Bale has no intention of leaving Real Madrid for the next two years, the Mirror reports, which is a blow for Manchester United. The Welshman has endured a tumultuous seven years in the Spanish capital, but the 30-year-old has reportedly told the club he intends to see out the remainder of his contract, which expires in the summer of 2022.
Bale has scored his share of decisive goals in the most important games for Real but the Spanish media constantly accuse the Wales forward of lacking commitment to the cause. I'm a defender of Bale, he's an incredible player,\" Brazil international Casemiro told radio station Onda Cero on Friday. People only talk about the bad things he does off the pitch, but they don't talk about what he does well, like the goals he scored in finals that won us trophies.
The Telegraph report that the Hornets are \"desperate for Flores to turn the situation around\", but it might be too much of an ask with upcoming fixtures against Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester United before Christmas. The report doesn't name any potential replacements, but it states that the club has no interest in bringing in a \"firefighter\" manager, like Sam Allardyce or Tony Pulis to offer a short-term fix.
Guardiola: Rodgers has made Leicester title rivals Brendan Rodgers has made Leicester Premier League title rivals, says Pep Guardiola. While Guardiola's champions were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw at Newcastle United at the weekend, leaving them 11 points behind leaders Liverpool, Leicester secured a last-gasp 2-1 win over Everton the following day to cut the gap to eight.
Wolfsburg recent form doesn't bode well for them ahead of Saturday's trip to Frankfurt. Eintracht are currently at the top of the Bundesliga's home form table. They are yet to lose a single home Bundesliga game this season. They have taken four wins and two draws from their six home fixtures.
But they are yet to win one trophy they crave the most. It would be nice for David and all of us to win the Champions League,\" said Guardiola. Since his English top-flight debut, Silva heads the charts with 92 assists and 790 chances created, more than any other player in that period. Guardiola added: \"In the small spaces, he is maybe the best I have seen. He came back from lockdown in incredible rhythm.
There was no way back, especially after Wolfsburg scored a fourth seven minutes later. The loss has hit their hopes of qualifying for the Chanpions League as they slipped down to fifth place. They are level on points with Borussia Monchengladbach, who are now in fourth and will want to get back into winning ways this weekend.
The togetherness and leadership they showed today, this is what I wanted to see,\" Arteta, whose side are level on 30 points with Newcastle, Everton and Crystal Palace said. Chelsea are six points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United but a win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side at home to Burnley on Wednesday would cut that advantage in half.
Former Newcastle and West Ham boss Alan Pardew has been appointed head coach of Dutch top-flight strugglers ADO Den Haag until the end of the season. Pardew takes charge with Den Haag two points off the bottom of the Eredivisie. I am glad ADO Den Haag came my way during the search for a new challenge\", said the 58-year-old Englishman. Ex-Charlton and Huddersfield boss Chris Powell, who is on England's coaching staff, will be Pardew's assistant.
