Poyet's men were denied victory by a stoppage-time equaliser in a 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest on Saturday and the Uruguayan was expecting them to make amends against the Addicks.

Brighton were twice denied in stoppage time as Vicente rattled the crossbar and Gordon Greer hit the post.

"I was expecting to win today. We definitely lost two points today and two last Saturday," he said.

Brighton remain in sixth place in the Championship and Poyet made it clear he felt his team deserved to be in a play-off spot.

He said: "Don't take anything away from my players, we deserve to be where we are.

"The game was not difficult to analyse.

"If I could ask for any more, it would be in terms of quality in our final ball. At part from that, it was all there.

"It really was one-way traffic and it was a great point for Charlton. I had a feeling they would be defensive and solid, and I can't remember the last time I didn't make a change during a game."

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!
