Two goals in four second-half minutes from Anthony Wordsworth and Freddie Sears gave the U's victory and ended their run of three straight defeats.

Dunne said: "I thought it was well-deserved and we were the better team. We knew it was important coming off the back of those three games that we spoke about quite publically.

"I put my trust in my team selection and they came through. We trained really well in the lead-up to the match and I thought that we deserved to win.

"Bury pushed forward in the second half to give us a bit of space to work in. I thought that we were patient in the first half and dominated the ball. We moved it well and patiently and had opportunities.

"The patience paid off in the second half and we got two great goals again. We like to work our goals and we have clever players, who just need to believe a bit more in what we're capable of."

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!
