Leon Osman: Back amongst the goal

The 32-year-old made a surprise international debut against Sweden last November and played in the World Cup qualifier against San Marino in March but has not been selected since.

He has also found his place in Everton's midfielder under pressure, having been dropped for the weekend's 2-0 win at Villa.

However, England manager Roy Hodgson was present to see him come off the bench to score one and set up the other for Romelu Lukaku and that has given Osman hope.

"I couldn't have asked for much more. I was involved in the first goal and I scored the second, so it's pleasing when games go like that," he told evertontv.

"I didn't know Roy Hodgson was here. I was concentrating on the match.

"Obviously, I'm English and I'm still wanting to play. If the call came I'd be delighted, but I'm not going to get too carried away with things that aren't taking place on the pitch.

"I've got two caps. I wouldn't say I'd be satisfied to finish with that because you want to get as many as you can.

"I'm still playing in the top flight and there's a big competition coming in the summer so if there's a chance for you to go then you try and take it."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
