England manager Gareth Southgate has revealed he has spoken to Declan Rice about the possibility of switching alliegiences.

However, Southgate added that he made no promises of a call-up for Rice if he did decide to commit to the Three Lions.

Rice was left out of the Republic of Ireland squad this week with Martin O’Neill confirming the West Ham defender was ‘deliberating’ his future.

Meanwhile, questions are also being raised about Harry Arter’s involvement with the Irish set-up.

The Irish Independent reports the midfielder will be dropped from the squad when it’s trimmed down this week.

It comes as O’Neill admitted that Arter was involved in a bust-up with assistant manager Roy Keane back in June.

Watford have maintained their 100 percent start to the Premier League season.

They’ve come from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1 at Vicarage Road.

Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart both fired headers in the second half for the Hornets, after an own goal gave Spurs the lead.

Manchester United have returned to winning ways.

A brace from Romelu Lukaku has handed Jose Mourinho’s side a 2-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Ipswich are still looking for their first win though, having finished 1-1 at home to Norwich in the East Anglia derby.

Celtic have continued their good recent record against Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

The champions got a 1-nil win at home to their Old Firm rivals, thanks to a goal from Olivier Ntcham.
