Bennett had to go off after just six minutes of the 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers with a knee injury.

"Rhys has damaged a knee and it doesn't look good," said Hill.

"We will know more after a scan, but it could be a season-ending injury."

Michael Rose came on for Bennett and scored Dale's equaliser after Ellis Harrison's fine opener.

But teenage winger Harrison bagged the winner with his second six minutes from time.

"We created some great opportunities, which I am pleased about, but failed to take them," added Hill.

"George Donnelly could easily be going home with the match ball for a hat-trick. Instead we are reflecting on a game we should never have lost.

"If you can't win a game you have to draw it. We made some poor decisions after getting the equaliser and I was looking for some leadership out there."

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!
