Schneiderlin has been one of Southampton's stand-put performers this season and there have been calls for him to be given a chance with his country.

However, the midfielder, who has represented France at all age levels from Under 16 to the Under 21s, was again overlooked by Deschamps for the friendly with Holland last week.

Pochettino insists Schneiderlin should not give up hope of winning a call-up in time for the World Cup in Brazil this summer and hopes Deschamps will come and watch the player in action.

"Until the final list is given he has his chances," Pochettino told the Daily Echo.

"I would actually invite the France national manager to come and see him direct as I think he has the skill and the quality to play with the France side and hopefully that will happen.

"I would be very pleased for him if that did happen."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
