Nigel Pearson: Late misery for Leicester manager

Pearson had no complaints about Wes Morgan's early red card, but he felt the Foxes had then done enough to earn a point only to be denied by Alan Dunne's late winner.

"I could bemoan a number of things but I think it's pretty unfortunate tonight," said Pearson, whose side have now gone six matches without a win.

"The players have worked very hard to get something out of the game and to concede a goal so late is, I think, quite cruel. I don't think the players deserve that tonight.

"The players have shown a lot of desire to play in a positive fashion despite going down to 10 men. It's not going for us at the moment but we've got to keep working hard.

"We're not scoring enough goals. We have seven games left and we're losing games by the odd goal. It doesn't mean defeats are any easier to deal with.

"You've got to be careful not to pigeon-hole tonight's performance along with some of our other recent performances; I think we've created some good situations tonight playing with 10 men and still looked pretty dangerous."

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!
