The Addicks have taken seven points in a week including Saturday's 2-1 win over Leeds, but Powell insists they cannot take survival for granted despite being seven points clear of the drop zone.

He said: "Regardless of what's gone on before, it's about now.

"I want us to just keep going now. We have some tough games coming up with another three in a week starting at Barnsley and then Cardiff away, and then we end it with Wolves.

"So I want us to just recover, enjoy the moment, but not too much, as we have still got five critical and vital games for the remainder of the season.

"It is very tight. I don't think we are safe with 54 points and I don't want my players or anyone else relaxing.

"In normal seasons that would have been fine, but we need to drive on and why not drive on in the remaining five games?"

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!
