  5. Optimism for Newcastle

    David James

    Former England goalkeeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

    More from David James, who gave his thoughts on Newcastle: "Eddie Howe has had a pre-season now, brought in players that he wants to bring in and I think he'll be there in the shout. Not necessarily for Champions League but definitely causing trouble."

  6. Darwin Nunez to score more than Erling Haaland?

    Former England goalkeeper David James on 5 Live Breakfast to preview the Premier League season, and he gave his thoughts on Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez: "Last season was exceptionally exciting especially with the run in at both ends of the table. The anticipation for this season seems to be even greater. The transfers seem to be more exciting.

    "I've had a wager with a friend that [Darwin] Nunez scores more goals than [Erling] Haaland but that doesn't mean I don't think Haaland will be fantastic. I just think the way that City have played in previous years, Haaland will have his fair share of goals but I think they'll share more amongst the team than perhaps Nunez will be required to score at Liverpool."

  9. Rodgers on captain Evans, Maddison and Fofana

    Leicester v Brentford (Sun, 14:00 BST)

    Leicester City

    Leicester City boss Brendon Rodgers has been speaking to the media before their Premier League opener against Brentford on Sunday.

    Here are the key lines from his news conference:

    • Rodgers said that Ricardo Pereira could be out of action for up to six months after rupturing his Achilles, while Harvey Barnes will be out for a few weeks, but the rest of the squad is available.
    • On Kasper Schmeichel's departure, he said: “He’s a true icon of the club. He has been very important. On the pitch, a colossal player for the club, he's been a part of all the great successes over the past decade. A real good guy off the field and I don’t say that lightly."
    • On his replacement, he added: "I’ve always said Ward is a number one, Iversen has gone away and done well. I don’t feel like I need to look outside for a new goalkeeper."
    • Rodgers announced Johnny Evans will be the new captain: "Jonny represents the collective standards of these players. He has huge respect in the changing room for what he’s achieved. He’s the natural guy to step forward.”
    • On potential signings, he said: "As things stand, I believe not. I mentioned that before, there’s nobody imminent coming in. The concentration has purely been on the players who are here. I think we can do well."
    • On the futures of James Maddison and Wesley Fofana, he said: "These players are not for sale. We need to move players out but it’s not getting rid of everyone and certainly not our best assets. It’s something the club are very strong on. James and Wesley are training very well and working hard for our game on Sunday.”

    "We lost three outfield players and a goalkeeper this summer. We didn’t bring any players in during January so we need to fill these voids. We want to being in quality players and we're working to do that."
