The win stretched the visitors' unbeaten run to 12, having taken 19 points from the last 21 and are up to fifth having won their last four games.

"It was a fantastic result for us," said Jackett. "I thought that in the first-half we were flat. We looked like we lacked energy but we hung in there.

"Going into the second-half we grew and looked in control.

"You could see the goal coming and I am really pleased for Andy Keogh as he had two goals disallowed on Saturday (against Blackburn Rovers) so he was owed one and it was a very, very good finish.

"We are talking about trying to establish ourselves in the top ten of this division.

"That is a big ask but it is our aim. We feel that if we are in the top 10 we are around the play-off area. That is ultimately where we want to be.

"At the start of the season we felt we had more players who could score than

since I have been here.

"Defensively we were quite poor and we worked at that and we have managed to hang in games by being strong defensively.

"That has helped us and we have had some very good performances. We have got great team spirit and in this run I have seen a group of hungry players."

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!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
