Lyon have warned clubs interested in signing Moussa Dembele that the striker is not for sale. Dembele, who previously played for Celtic and Fulham, has been linked with a move to Chelsea and Manchester United during the January transfer window.

In a statement, the club said they \"wish to keep\" the France Under-21 international.
Having crashed out of the Taca de Portugal last season against arch rivals Sporting at the semi-final stage, Benfica are hoping for better success in it this campaign. Whilst it's not the team's main objective, it's still of significant importance and those taking to the pitch on Tuesday will be looking to get the job done without issues.
The Gunners already have problems in defence with Calum Chambers, Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac all out injured. Brazil defender David Luiz was also absent from their win on the south coast through suspension but will be available for their trip to Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday. Mustafi, 27, has started Arsenal's past three matches. He was replaced by Rob Holding in an area of the pitch that Arteta has already determined needs reinforcement.
Kane touted as Aguero heir by City Manchester City are reportedly planning for life without the club's all-time top goalscorer Sergio Aguero, whose current contract expires in the summer of 2021. According to the Sun, the Premier League champions are looking to recruit a potential successor for the Argentine, with Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez at the top of their list.
We’re expecting another away win here, and with Norwich conceding exactly two goals in each of their last four home matches and losing the last two 2-1, we think backing a 2-1 win for Spurs is a good choice.
Paul Pogba's Manchester United comeback is set to be delayed after he missed two days' training because of illness. The France midfielder was expected to return to training this week after recovering from the ankle injury that has kept him out since September. Pogba attended his brother's wedding in France on Friday, but needed a check-up with United's doctor on Saturday. His symptoms worsened on Sunday.
Benfica will be on the back foot when they go to this game. Their away record in the competition has not been the best and they take on a Leipzig side in really good form. Leipzig have two straight wins in Champions League, while on the other hand, Benfica have four straight losses in the competition. The down side for Leipzig is that they rarely keep clean sheets, which happens to be Benfica’s problem as well. Benfica have scored in each of the last seven Champions League matches, but they have conceded two or more goals in nine of their last 12 in the competitions. Based on that, we are backing Leipzig for a 2-1 win.
An 87th minute goal from Connor Wickham, allowed by a VAR review, earned Crystal Palace a 1-1 draw at bottom club Norwich City, a bitter blow for the struggling Canaries. Norwich had led after a fourth minute goal from Todd Cantwell and dominated for large stretches but were unable to add to their tally -- Kenny McLean hitting the bar in the 73rd minute.
This is known as being ‘on furlough’. Your employer could pay 80% of your wages through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, up to a monthly cap of £2,500. You’ll still be paid by your employer and pay taxes from your income. You cannot undertake work for your employer while on furlough. The decision of a few clubs - namely Tottenham, Newcastle, Liverpool, Norwich and Bournemouth - to furlough non-playing staff has been met with widespread anger.
Godoy Cruz is very weak in defense, they have a lot of losses in this start of the season but their last 5 games they started scoring goals even when they lose and they were all games with over 2.5 goals scored in them.
Sabanas may be coming after two 1-1 draws but they were home games while away from home they played 6 games so far this season and lost 4 times by at least 3 goals difference, losing 3-0 once 4-1 twice and 5-0 once plus even at home they were unable to avoid defeat in the first part of this season against Esteli as they lost the game with 3-1 in the end, and there is the possibility that this game could end up in a 3-0 win for the hosts as Esteli at home has a record of 4-1-1 so far.
Forth before the international break in Sandhausen despite two lead at the end with a 2: 3, but overall, they are having a good season and rank 6th also because there were 7 points from 3 games in front of the Sandhausen. With the 5-3-5 balance is also important fulfilled, they are 4 points ahead of the local rivals.
Lille haven’t been too peachy either though as Christophe Galtier's men are now winless in their last five games after a 2-0 defeat to Ajax in midweek. They have really struggled to adapt to the stresses of Champions League football this season and it's taken its toll on their league standing as they currently sit 10th, a disappointing drop in form from their runners-up campaign last year. Les Dogues have faced some lofty opponents in recent weeks with PSG, Ajax, Marseille and Valencia all coming in their last five matches but they also struggled to beat 18th placed Metz in this time so it seems the problems run rather deep.
He's a very important player for the club and has been for a number of years, particularly since I arrived here. It's very important he's available for us for this final part of the season. However, left back Ben Chilwell is a doubt after straining his hamstring in Wednesday's FA Cup fifth round win over Birmingham City.

Video - Chelsea start Coutinho talks, but may face competition - Euro Papers01:27 \"Together we have defined the direction for the coming years. I am sure that we can achieve a lot together.
If I was to judge this game alone from the point of view of the guests this should be an over 2.5 goals game all alone, they have nothing to lose nothing to win really with 26 points they are far away from the relegation zone and too far away from the top 3 places at this moment, they would have came closer if they beat Brno at home a couple of days ago but were dominated for 60 minutes and just 2-0 behind Brno decided to defend and Usti nad Labem almost took profit from this only losing the game with 2-1 in the end, and their attack is decent having watched that game but overall their defense can be quite weak against good attacking opposition.
It is almost like being back in the playground, when one of the older boys would get on the ball. Everything about him is just better. I don't think he can do it on his own, though. We have to build on what we have with him in the team, but we definitely need one or two other players who can do something similar. People say he is inconsistent but I think we have to admit United are not one of the best teams in the country right now, and he needs some help.
