The remaining Premier League managers will face the media, providing the latest injury and fitness news.


Matchweek 6 of the Premier League starts at a slightly later time of 15:00 BST (giving Fantasy Premier League managers some extra hours to sort out their teams, with a deadline of 13:30 BST), but also a later finish. 

The 10 fixtures are split evenly across the two days, with five on Saturday, as Man City look to extend their winning start to six matches as they welcome Forest.

The standout fixture of the weekend takes place on Sunday 14:00, with the first north London derby of the season.
