BBC Sport's chief football writer Phil McNulty has been taking your questions on the Premier League and issues arising during the international break.

James asked: Would Euros success or failure be more likely to nudge Gareth Southgate towards Old Trafford?

Phil replied: First of all we have to stress... Southgate, as yet, has expressed no concrete view on his England future after Euro 2024.

As for Manchester United, if England won Euro 2024 then of course this would improve his chances of landing a big club job, such as the one at Old Trafford, if he wanted it.

I would hazard a guess that if England do not win Euro 2024 then the possibility would recede.
