A youthful Alex XI went down 4-1 at Swindon in midweek but Davis insists those players will be getting further chances to prove their worth before the end of the campaign.

"We have three games left and I have to see if these players are good enough," he told the club's official website.

"We have lost four or five of our key players recently through injury or suspension and this has given them their chance.

"They have to show that they are good enough and I told them that after the game. They have to perform and produce.

"Some of them are playing for contracts and perhaps that has been on their minds a bit, but they have to keep working hard and show what they can do in the remaining three 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!
