Patrick van Aanholt: Own goal

Vitesse Arnhem's bid to go top of the Eredivisie standings on Tuesday night was wrecked as AZ Alkmaar claimed a 2-0 win at the GelreDome.

A victory would have sent Vitesse a point clear of leaders Ajax but Peter Bosz's side, who had failed to win their previous two matches as well, were left empty-handed as AZ claimed only their third away win in 11 attempts this season.

An own goal from Vitesse's on-loan Chelsea defender Patrick van Aanholt put AZ ahead in the 20th minute and Aron Johannsson sealed the win three minutes before half-time.

Feyenoord, in fourth, are now just two points behind Vitesse after earning a 2-1 win at relegation-battling Roda JC.

First-half strikes from Lex Immers (13) and Samuel Armenteros (45) set Feyenoord on their way and, although they were made to sweat after Roda pulled a goal back 13 minutes from time through Anour Kali, the visitors held on for the spoils.

In Tuesday's other match, rock-bottom ADO Den Haag crashed to a fifth defeat in six games and 14th in total this season after going down 3-0 at home to Heracles Almelo.

Bryan Linssen gave Heracles a flying start with the opening goal after just two minutes and Mark Uth wrapped up the points with a brace, netting in the 34th and 57th minutes.

S

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.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

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!
