Having suffered successive defeats over the festive period, the Lions secured a hard-earned 2-1 victory thanks to goals by Dany N'Guessan and Spurs loanee Adam Smith.

It was enough to get back level on points with sixth-placed Watford and Jackett said: "It's great to get a win after two losses, I'm very, very pleased with that.

"Their keeper was far busier than ours and kept them in it with some excellent saves and we're very pleased with the victory. We were that dominant in the first half perhaps we could have been further ahead.

"Finishing is such a big part of the game. We could have been further ahead, you know that with the quality of their substitutes that the game is going to turn and they're going to cause you a problem.

"We responded very well after the equaliser and worked their keeper several times.

"I am very pleased for Adam Smith because throughout his Millwall career he has looked like breaking through from the back in either setting up or scoring a goal."

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!
