  6. ‘All I wanted was a phonecall’

    Cardiff v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Cardiff City

    Warnock also explained his accusation that Liverpool showeda lack of classover defender Nathaniel Clyne’s move to Bournemouth.

    Clyne, 27, made his professional debut in 2008 under then Crystal Palace boss Warnock, who had expected him to join Cardiff this month but the 27-year-old opted to join the Cherries instead.

    “I know I got criticism for Liverpool and Clyne. But all I wanted was a phone call to say he was going,” he said.

    “If I had a choice between Bournemouth and Cardiff, I probably would’ve made the same decision. I don’t blame him for going there at all. They’re a great club.”

  7. ‘I’m not going to lose any sleep’

    Cardiff v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    More from Warnock on the transfer window.

    “We’ve been close with one or two players

    “But one of those deals could be back on. I don’t think I can say anything to you until someone has signed a contract.

    “At the same time they’re speaking to me, agents are offering them to five or six other clubs. I don’t want players to just come for the money.

    We’re a great club with a great fanbase. If we’ve got to get on with what we’ve got, I’m not going to lose any sleep over it.”

  8. ‘The January window is the worst window’

    Cardiff v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Cardiff City

    Warnock took a trip to France this week to see about reviving a move for Nantes forward Emiliano Sala but no deal has been finalised so far for the Argentine player.

    “There’s a number of players we’re looking at, especially in the French market. But nothing concrete at all,” said Warnock

    “He’s one of a number of players we were looking at. The game the other night, even though he was playing there were two or three others we were looking at.

    “Anything can happen. I’ve not written anything off, but I’m not optimistic about anything. Things change all the time. The January window is the worst ever window.”

  9. Warnock’s slippery slope

    Cardiff v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Cardiff City

    The January transfer window can prove a bit of a challenge, even for experienced campaigners like Neil Warnock.

    “It’s like climbing a mountain with butter on your hands,” said the Cardiff manager. “One day you think you are almost there – and then you slide back down.”

    Warnock addressed some of the transfer rumours surrounding the Bluebirds when he faced the media earlier.

  18. ‘We have to use the time and understand the challenge right’

    Brighton v Liverpool (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Liverpool

    On whether Liverpool have an advantage being out of the FA Cup:“We
    will see it. I don’t know. It’s quite special to have three centre-halves in
    the same moment. Bad luck, eh? That makes it quite tricky but we have to use
    our situation.

    “If we could
    be in another situation now with more [FA Cup] games, then what is it? We have
    the Champions League at the start of February. Other teams have other games. We
    can deal with it and they can deal with it.

    “There’s no
    advantage. You can do a lot of wrong things when you have a week to train. That
    is possible. We have to use the time and understand the challenge right.”

    Klopp ends by confirming Rafael Camacho will not leave Liverpool this winter.

    On Brighton:“It’s really difficult in the Premier League to be in the position they are in and not have the money.

    “[Lewis] Dunk and [Shane] Duffy are outstanding centre-halves. [Davy]
    Propper is playing his best season in England is a good pairing with [Dale] Stephens.

    “It is just a good team. They are in the shadow of all other teams but then you think ‘oh right, we could have had this player as well.’

    ‘We have to make life as difficult as possible for Brighton’ and will try everything to win that game.”

  20. ‘The best way to create the pace is get points’

    Brighton v Liverpool (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Liverpool

    On facingnew challenges:“That’s normal. Every year is the same. Last year when we fought for the Champions League, everything was fine and then Chelsea found their feet back and it was really difficult.

    As long as you can stay completely focused and completely with yourself the better it is. So far that is what we try to do and it has been pretty easy for us to stay focused.

    “There is no game in the Premier League where you can count the
    three points beforehand. I like that. It is good. It should be okay line-up wise
    but we have problems.

    “I seen Chelsea Tottenham in the [Carabao Cup] semi-final and both benches were full of players I know. That means no kids around.

    “The best way to create the pace is get points.”
