Doncaster dominated possession throughout the game with short, sharp passes and were rewarded with the win after 18-year-old Jordan Bell headed home seven minutes from time to dump the holders out at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Wright said: "It was a disappointing goal to concede because we've played well and defended well. It's always going to be disappointing to go out of a competition you won last year.

"If you switch off for a second, especially when you play teams from a higher league then you're going to get punished and it's frustrating that was the case.

"I thought we coped quite well with the possession Doncaster had - Richard O'Donnell didn't have many real saves to make and we had some really good chances on the break, particularly Craig Westcarr.

"The back four coped well against players who have mostly played in the Championship and from a side who are in the top 10 of the division above. But to lose to a set-piece is very frustrating."

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!
