Dead Saunders: Is aware of the task at hand

Saunders' men head to Brighton knowing only a victory will keep their hopes of staying up alive, and even then they are still reliant on results elsewhere going in their favour.

The Molineux boss believes his side are capable of achieving the great escape on Saturday but has already hinted he has started to think about the potential of next season in League One.

He told the club's official website: "It is going to be touch and go. It is unlikely but not impossible.

"If we win our game and Barnsley and Peterborough lose, it is going to be within a goal or two.

"We've just got to go there with belief that we can win our game; then we need Crystal Palace to turn on a performance against Peterborough.

"We have to try and make something happen, and if it doesn't we will start again."

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!
