The Stoke City number one hit the back of the net during the opening minute of his side's 1-1 draw at home to Southampton, becoming only the fifth stopper to get on the scoresheet in the Premier League.

Tremmel is likely to come up against Begovic due to the suspension of Michel Vorm for Michael Laudrup's side, and the German admits that scoring a goal is something he has thought about.

"I saw Begovic's goal last week. It's one of my aims. I have not scored a goal yet," he told the Daily Star.

"I have gone forward a few times in the last minute for a corner and I've touched the ball with a header, but I have never managed to get one into the net. There is not much time left for me."

However, the 34-year old does have some sympathy for Artur Boruc, the goalkeeper who conceded Begovic's 90-yard strike.

"It is definitely not the best feeling to concede like that, especially for Boruc who has had a good season so far," he said.

"I've never conceded one, but of course I'll be on my guard as Begovic can kick the ball a very long way."

Tremmel also spoke of the significance of the Southampton tie following a 1-1 Europa League draw with Krasnodar Kuban, a game in which the Swans shipped an injury-time equaliser for the second time in a fortnight.

"It's a very important game for us. If we don't win then we are getting close to the relegation zone. Obviously we don't want that," he said.

"Stoke are a different team. What we can learn from the goal we conceded in the last minute in Kuban is that we have to be sharper with high balls.

"We have to keep the ball on the ground, pass it quickly and try to create chances."

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!
