SMS Message: My wife and I saw Claudio Ranieri chatting outside a Notting Hill restaurant last year. I then noticed he was chatting to Antonio Conte. Two ex Chelsea mangers (!), so my son being a Chelsea fan, my wife initiated a photo with them (they were both charming). It was only after she said she hadn’t recognised Conte – fortunately she didn’t ask him to stand out of the way! from Hugo

Leicester near the top of the Premier League table. Where have we heard that one before?
Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes have had a flying start to the season – sitting third after 10 games – and it is bringing back memories of their famous title-winning season under Claudio Ranieri in 2015-16.
By most metrics, they are better now than they were at the same stage that season.
So how do the two teams compare? And could Leicester actually challenge for this year’s title?
Have a read of Emlyn Begley’s analysis here.
Two changes for Crystal Palace as Vicente Guaita and Jeffrey Schlupp come into the side. Leicester, meanwhile, are unchanged.

You can understand why Palace are reluctant to let Wilfred Zaha
go. His price will continue to rise considering his ability.
He is not scoring the goals yet but you realise why the team
needs to be built around him and he’s having a great part in the goals they are

Leicester have massive potential to finish in the top four.
Brendan Rodgers understand the squad, there’s so much
development throughout this team, and he also knows the value of Vardy and
playing around him.
And they are exciting to watch: they are punishing teams and
that’s the right reward for the type of manager Brendan Rodgers is.
- a hat-trick in the last league outing.
So good has Leicester’s start been that they have more points now than at this stage of the 2016 title-winning season.
Silva remains under scrutiny and certainly the pressure would have intensified had Everton not progressed to the last eight of the Carabao Cup in midweek.
Some have also questioned Mauricio Pochettino this season, with Spurs struggling to find any consistency as they underachieve.
Despite reaching the Champions League final, Tottenham’s overall form in 2019 has been patchy. But they have a good record against Everton as they seek to end their alarming away form by claiming three league points on the road for the first time since January.
Title rivals City also fell behind early on against Southampton, but the visitors’ resistance was broken on 70 minutes by Sergio Aguero, and Kyle Walker scored with four minutes left to clinch a 2-1 victory.
In the early kick-off, Bournemouth won 1-0 to end Manchester United’s three-match winning run, with ex-United trainee Joshua King scoring on the stroke of half-time, while Arsenal drew 1-1 with Wolves later in the afternoon.
After an eight-game extravaganza on Saturday there’s just the two games today but they are intriguing fixtures none-the-less.
Crystal Palace host in-form Leicester at 14:00 GMT where a win for Palace will see them leap above Arsenal into fifth. A win for the Foxes, meanwhile, will send them third.
Then at 16:30 GMT it is the battle of the (somewhat) under pressure managers as Marco Silva’s Everton hosts Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham.
You can listen to both games on BBC Radio 5 live.
