Charlie Austin, who also scored in that victory at the weekend, was again the man on target for the Clarets, with his 20th goal of the season seven minutes from time proving decisive in a 1-0 win.

Dyche refused to put a limit on how many the former Swindon frontman could get this term and insisted there was more to come from the side as a whole.

"There is no reason why Charlie cannot go on and get more," said Dyche. "There are no boundaries.

"Charlie knows the build-up to that goal was top drawer. If you give someone like Charlie a ball like that into the box there is a good chance it will end up in the back of the net, especially at the moment.

"I thought we had enough chances to win the game. We created some good chances in the first half, had some good pockets of play and could have arguably nicked one but Leeds are a good side and Neil always has his sides set up well.

"In the second half they got the upper hand for 20 minutes and played some clever football to peg us back.

"I said to them at half-time that if you do the basics well then you will win this game and the goal was top drawer.

"We can still play better but there was pockets of really good play tonight and that was really pleasing. If you keep the opposition at zero then you have a chance.

"We are still a work in progress, most teams are and we are no different, there is much more to come."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
