Jermaine Jenas: Three points is a must at Craven Cottage

Jermaine Jenas: Three points is a must at Craven Cottage

Harry Redknapp's side blew the chance of a third straight win with a poor performance against Aston Villa a fortnight ago, a defeat which left them seven points adrift of safety.

And with just eight matches remaining, Jenas insists they must get the better of their west London rivals at Craven Cottage to keep the pressure on teams hovering above the relegation zone.

"If we're totally honest, we need to win on Monday night," Jenas said.

"A draw won't be a bad result because it keeps us moving forward and gets that momentum back up, but make no mistake, we need to be winning games. There are teams that can easily get sucked into it."

Jenas has netted twice in as many appearance since moving to Loftus Road from Tottenham in January, and Redknapp hopes his experience will prove crucial in the run-in.

Jenas added: "Harry knows the situations I've been in throughout my career and knows I can handle these types of battles. I've played in a lot of pressurised games throughout my career.

"I'd like to think that's why Harry brought me here - to play games, score goals and help the team out.

"The position we're in is tough, but the mood in the camp is positive. We're scoring goals, creating chances and there's a style about our play now that wasn't there a few weeks or months ago."

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.

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!
