Jake Reeves: Feeling no ill effects from David Luiz challenge

Reeves was running forward near the halfway line during the latter stages of the 4-0 FA Cup fourth-round replay reverse when Brazilian defender Luiz ran across his path and connected with his shoulder in the Brentford midfielder's jaw.

Luiz received a yellow card, which could easily have been red, while Reeves was forced off the pitch with concussion.

But the 19-year-old fortunately recovered quickly and, having received a post-match apology from Luiz, returned to action on Monday to play 90 minutes for Brentford's Under-21 side in a victory over Bristol City.

"I feel fine," Reeves told the club's official website. "I was alright about 10 minutes after and was sitting on the bench.

"I remember passing it off to Clayton Donaldson and a big shoulder smashed me straight in the face, that's it.

"The medical team just took me off, there was no talking. You could tell I wasn't happy to come off. I was pushing the physios off, which wasn't very clever, but I didn't know what I was doing at the time."

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!
