The challenge resulted in Southampton's opening goal and Rodriguez went on to set up his side's second which Adam Lallana converted.

Le Fondre said: "You would have thought it would have been a red card, wouldn't you?

"It's that little bit of luck that you get. The referee did not see it, Rodriguez went straight through Feds and they get a goal."

The result for Reading looks to have all but sealed their relegation but defender Adrian Mariappa insists that they will continue to fight for every point.

The former Watford player said: "Every game is massive now and all we can do is give it everything against Liverpool next Saturday.

"Everyone is just trying to play out of their skins to stay in this league."

S

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!
