Ralf Ragnick on Captaincy rumours: “I must say it is absolutely nonsense. I have never spoken with any player about the possible change of captaincy. It’s me who decides who is captain and I don’t have to talk to anyone else about that. Harry [Maguire] is our captain and he will stay our captain.”

Team News ahead of game against Leeds United: “Well, as it seems, Edinson Cavani will still be out,” explained Rangnick at his pre-match press conference. “He is still having some problems with his groin and, on the other hand, also some with his stomach. The same is true with Tom Heaton. Apart from that, everybody else seems to be available.”

“I’m grateful that we have more players back available again,” added Ralf. “Nemanja Matic was back in training today for the first time and he did quite well, so he might be available, maybe even for tomorrow for Sunday against Leeds, but definitely in the next two games. And then we will have to see. We will take it one by one, we will try to start each of those three games [Leeds, Atletico, Watford] with a starting XI where we are convinced that we can win the next possible game.”

On players being unhappy: “There were players unhappy until the close of the window because the squad was too big and players weren’t getting game time — the atmosphere in the dressing room is better than it was a few weeks ago for that reason.”

“Against Brighton we were struggling in the first half to get the ball but we must admit that Brighton did extremely well. This only changed in the second half when we took a risk and tried winning balls in their half.”

“This will be the same against Leeds although they have a different approach. We will have to be proactive. It will be a different game, as will Atletico and Watford and we’ll have to take one game at a time.”

Marcelo Bielsa could be boosted by the return of full-back Junior Firpo but he is still dealing with some big-name absentees. Patrick Bamford’s foot problem keeps him sidelined, while Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper appear unlikely to play until next month.

Stuart Dallas is a doubt but has not yet been ruled out. “Dallas is recovering,” said Bielsa. “He hasn’t been written off from Sunday’s game.” Leo Fuhr Hjelde sustained a knee injury in the 3-0 loss at Everton last weekend and will be absent for at least three weeks, longer if the problem ends up requiring surgery.
