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."

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!
