Gareth Southgate: “It’s always easier to get more excited about trying to win something than trying to avoid something, in the way that we’d been trying to avoid relegation for most of the seasons we were in the Premier League.

“Last season was a big disappointment and our internal inquest is ongoing but we have to move forward.

“We have to get minds focused on the challenge ahead - and ours definitely are.

“We’ve got to make sure that we improve in everything we do and look to the next challenge. There’s so much to be gained this season so I’m looking forward to it.”
