Athletic are now just two wins off a top-six place but Powell has played down suggestions their late run of form could see them in with a shot at promotion.

"No (we aren't talking about the play-offs), we might take just one more point," he said.

"The way the fixtures are, we might be safe, but we are going to push on. The real question is can we keep this going for the final four games?

"I just want to savour the moment want to live and savour it with them - the team, the fans it's a great day for us.

"I'm really proud of them today. We go about our business quietly and effectively, but days like this won't come around too often.

"It was one of the best. I won't say the best. To score six on the road - it's up there in my top three."

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!
