THE SUNDAY TIMES

Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio's tenure is looking increasingly insecure.

Jose Mourinho and his three Spanish internationals - Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Cesar Azpilicueta - are heading for a confrontation after all three were omitted from the starting XI in last night's 2-0 victory over Fulham, a win that took Chelsea to the top of the league.

THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

Jose Mourinho last night declared that Juan Mata did not work hard enough to play for Chelsea - and said the midfielder could no longer rely on the fact he was the club's player of the year for the past two seasons.

David Moyes has admitted he believed Wayne Rooney had "gone a bit soft" after letting his standards at Manchester United slip last season.

THE OBSERVER

Brendan Rodgers bizarrely selected four centre-backs, saw his side concede a goal at a set piece and complained the defending was "criminal" as Liverpool lost their unbeaten record at Anfield to an energetic and well-organised Southampton.

David Moyes has praised Wayne Rooney for working hard to restore his reputation as a big-game player, adding that he needed to make the change after letting his standards slip last season.

INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

The pin is being prised loose from the human grenade. Paolo Di Canio refused to countenance change despite a calamitous Sunderland performance at the Hawthorns, where his side were embarrassed by Stephane Sessegnon, the refugee from a regime on the cusp of chaos.

"We will give you happiness," Jose Mourinho promised in his programme notes.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
