Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is excited about the month ahead.

Barca have tough league fixtures against Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid and Suarez is excited.

"A very nice month is ahead," he told Barcelona's own media channels.

"We like those, both as footballers and also people.

"There will be a Clasico too.

"You have to be mentally and physically prepared.

"Maybe we won't win every game or have it easy, but we hope to do our best with the support of the fans.

"We have not had a simple league start.

"We gave away points that in other years we hadn't lost, but we know that other teams are also competing well."

Erling Haaland sent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer text messages about Manchester United earlier this year.

Haaland has emerged as one of United’s top targets ahead of the January transfer window after his fine displays for RB Salzburg in Austria.

It is understood United will make their move for the 19-year-old in January but are open to loaning him back to Salzburg for the rest of the season.

Solskjaer and Haaland have already worked together after spending two years at Molde, and the striker believes he is the perfect boss for young players.

And earlier this year Haaland revealed he’d been speaking to Solskjaer about United.

"I was working almost two years under him and I have a lot of good memories," the striker said back in April.

"Especially for young players, he was a perfect coach. Because he was an excellent striker, he taught me a lot of things.

"Even now we are texting sometimes and I am happy about his success with Man United. I wish him all the best for the future."

Those comments will come as a good reminder to United fans who are desperate for January signings.

It emerged this week that Solskjaer has sent his ‘personal scout’ to watch Haaland as he plots a move in January.

Haaland has already scored 15 goals in the Austrian Bundesliga in 12 appearances and has seven in four in the Champions League, including one against Liverpool.

He has also scored four hat-tricks this season and hit a stunning nine goals for in a 12-0 win for Norway’s Under 20 side against Honduras.

And United need reinforcing up top after selling Romelu Luakaku and loaning Alexis Sanchez both to Inter Milan.

United have scored just 16 goals in 12 games this season and sit seventh in the Premier League, nine points behind Manchester City in fourth, and a staggering 18 behind league leaders Liverpool.

“Matteo, 45, underwent an operation on a brain tumour on Monday and is currently being treated in hospital after coming out of intensive care.

“The thoughts of everyone at the club are with Dom, his family and friends and we will be offering our support to them throughout this difficult time.

“A popular member of the Liverpool side in the 1990s and a regular pundit and commentator on LFCTV in recent years, Matteo made his debut for the Reds in October 1993.

“He went on to become a regular under Roy Evans and later Gerard Houllier for four seasons from 1996-97, making a total of 155 appearances for the club.

“Matteo – who also represented Scotland at international level – departed for Leeds United in 2000, where he spent four years, before spells with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City.

“We wish Dom a full and speedy recovery and will offer any support we can to his wife and family.

“Dom's family would like to place on record their gratitude to all staff at Leeds General Infirmary and express their thanks for all of the messages of support they have received.”

Leeds also posted a message on Twitter, saying: “The thoughts of everyone at #LUFC are with our former captain @Dominicmatteo21 and his family after he was taken seriously ill earlier this week. Stay strong Dom!”

Matteo spent most of his career at Liverpool and Leeds playing 127 times for the Reds and 115 for the Whites.

He earned six caps for Scotland after representing England Under 21s and B team.

Matteo also played for Blackburn and Stoke before retiring age 35.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sits top of the Premier League manager power rankings after leading the Reds through a hugely impressive start to their title challenge.

The German has fended off the likes of Chris Wilder and Brendan Rodgers, who sit inside the top four along with Chelsea gaffer Frank Lampard.

But just where do Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and the Premier League’s other big name managers rank after almost a third of the 2019/20 campaign has passed?

Express Sport are on hand to rate and slate Guardiola and co. following the first 12 games of what’s set to be yet another scintillating season.

20 - Marco Silva

Everton have gone backwards under the once highly-rated boss, whose time in charge at Goodson Park is surely running out.

19 - Unai Emery

Arsenal fans fear the final years of Arsene Wenger’s tenure are simply being relived and the axe might fall sooner rather than later if the Gunners don’t arrest their alarming slump.

18 - Ralph Hassenhuttl

Southampton have recovered from their 9-0 mauling against Leicester though their manager remains under the cosh.

17 - Quique Sanchez Flores

Not quite a dead-man walking but is yet to show he has what it takes to turn Watford around and secure a sixth consecutive season of top-flight football for the Hornets.

16 - Daniel Farke

Keeping Norwich in the Premier League was always going to be tough but the German is failing to learn from the defensive lessons which would help his cause.

15 - Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham are in a predicament with a number of star man eyeing the exit and their gaffer could be forced to follow suit following a massive drop off from recent seasons.

14 - Manuel Pellegrini

Much better is expected of the former Premier League winner after being given more than £150m to make this West Ham squad his own.

13 - Dean Smith

Survival is top of the agenda and the former Brentford supremo is set to achieve that with Aston Villa as it stands.

12 - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

He’s a long way from replicating the heroics of his former boss Sir Alex Ferguson but seems to have Manchester United going in the right direction after years of turmoil.

11 - Roy Hodgson

The wily old fox continues to outwit his opponents with his boyhood club, Crystal Palace, and survival should be a given.

10 - Sean Dyche

The Burnley boss is among the Premier League’s most pragmatic managers and is getting more out of his workhorse squad than many would manage.

9 - Pep Guardiola

Manchester City remain one of the Premier League’s all-time great sides but their boss’ magic touch hasn’t quite been there to save them amid an injury crisis this time around.

8 - Graham Potter

Solid start to the season after his step up from the Championship, with Brighton playing decent football to boot.

7 - Steve Bruce

Still has his critics but has Newcastle on the right track with survival the No 1 priority in the wake of Rafa Benitez’s summer departure.

6 - Eddie Howe

Bournemouth’s boss continues to shine on the south coast with a top-half finish the target for the Cherries.

5 - Nuno Espirito Santo

Stock remains high having navigated Wolves through a tough start to the campaign while impressing in Europe.

4 - Chris Wilder

Stuck to his principles and reaped the rewards after seeing Sheffield United written off by many before the season began.

3 - Frank Lampard

Needs a win against a big club to bolster how his managerial reputation but has welded together a strong Chelsea team enacting his vision while battling a transfer ban.

2 - Brendan Rodgers

Has silenced his doubters since returning to the Premier League from Celtic and transformed Leicester into one of the top-flight’s most attractive teams.

1 - Jurgen Klopp

On course to guide Liverpool to their first ever Premier League title and doing it in style with reigning champions Manchester City fading into the distance in his rear-view mirror.
