The Baggies went down 2-0 at home to Norwich on Saturday to make it three defeats in a week, a result that leaves them only a couple of points above the relegation zone.

Games against Cardiff and Hull are next on their Premier League schedule and Clarke insists his players are going to have to start rolling their sleeves up to get out of their predicament.

"There is no other way," he said. "It's been a difficult week for us. Three defeats in a week is sore, it's painful.

"It's hard to take but next week we have to go to Cardiff, we have to be resilient and we have to start getting points on the board.

"There is no easy solution. This was two teams who had not been getting the best results recently, feeling each other out.

"From nowhere they got that first goal, it gave them something to hang on to and set us back a bit."

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

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!
