Pearce was shown a red card by referee Trevor Kettle for a challenge on Matej Vydra, and that punishment has been upheld meaning Pearce will have to sit out three games.

His ban starts with Sunday's trip to Millwall, which midfielder Michael Brown will also miss after reaching five yellow cards this season.

Reacting after his dismissal Pearce said: "I was massively disappointed. I'm a wholehearted player. I genuinely went for the ball.

"Looking back I thought it was a yellow card. I went for the ball, and I kicked him but it wasn't a bad tackle or a dangerous tackle so I'm disappointed."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
