The defensive duo both limped out of last Saturday's 1-0 defeat at MK Dons and United went on to lose their first League One game of the season.

Although the prognosis is not too severe, they are unlikely to be fit for the visit of Stevenage on Saturday.

"They are struggling. We have got another 48 hours or so, but they are struggling and I'm not banking on them being fit for the game," Wilson said. "It's too early to say how long they will be out, it might be sooner rather than later, but they are struggling for Saturday.

"I don't think it is any coincidence that they have been in the team and we have had as many clean sheets as we have. So the dynamics of the team will change, but whoever comes in, it is an opportunity.

"In an ideal world we want our experienced players out there, but we aren't in that position."

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!
