The Owls turned in a workmanlike performance on a difficult surface and were rewarded for their efforts when Leroy Lita headed in Michail Antonio's superb cross.

Jones said: "It was a hard-earned win from a dogged performance. I thought we were solid, we protected Chris Kirkland really well and I think we deserved the win in the end.

"I was really pleased with the goal, it was a fantastic ball in from Antonio and you know what you get from Leroy, it's what he's all about.

"He was hardly in the game for long spells but when he gets the chance he usually puts the ball in."

Jones also praised his new additions, saying: "I am really happy with the squad we have now. We have strength in depth and it's really the first time we have had that since I have been here.

"Signings like Lita and Connor Wickham mean we now have the players to bring on to make a difference. I'm really pleased we got the three points today."

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.
