Nemanja Vidic: Wants respect at Anfield on Sunday

Nemanja Vidic: Wants respect at Anfield on Sunday

A look at what is making the back-page headlines in today's national newspapers:

THE SUN: Every Manchester United player will shake hands with Luis Suarez on Sunday. Also: Arsene Wenger was delighted yesterday after Jack Wilshere's first full training session in more than a year; Rob Elliot earned under-strength Newcastle a Europa League point.

DAILY MAIL: Roman Abramovich demanded answers from players and coaching staff at Chelsea's training ground yesterday after they blew a two-goal lead against Juventus. Also: Nemanja Vidic has appealed to Manchester United and Liverpool fans to behave during Sunday's meeting at Anfield and says that Britain is 'on trial'.

DAILY MIRROR: Nemanja Vidic has told Manchester United's players to forget the Luis Suarez affair and focus on beating Liverpool. Also: Brendan Rodgers insisted his young side came of age with a truly remarkable victory in Berne last night.

DAILY EXPRESS: Roy Hodgson has offered a stark insight into the pressures of being national manager by likening his England reign to being on his "death bed". Also: Arsenal and England were told yesterday that Jack Wilshere could resume full training and that Andy Carroll was close to full fitness.

DAILY STAR: Nemanja Vidic has urged Patrice Evra and Luis Suarez to settle their differences and avoid sparking fury at Anfield on Sunday. Also: Jack Wilshere handed Arsenal a huge boost by returning to full training yesterday.

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH: Nemanja Vidic has called on Manchester United's fans and players to show respect and not to do "stupid things" on their emotionally charged trip to Liverpool on Sunday. Also: Liverpool's Jonjo Shelvey last night enjoyed the most entertaining cameo since the Queen took a phone call from Danny Boyle.

THE TIMES: Roy Hodgson yesterday expressed his frustrations over the club schedules that he believes are restricting England's chances of success as he bids to bring the importance of the national team back into focus. Also: If making sense of Liverpool has been a test for Brendan Rodgers ever since he took over as manager, comprehending the contradictory factors which underpinned the biggest victory of his tenure so far is a challenge in itself.

THE GUARDIAN: Nemanja Vidic has called on Manchester United supporters to set an example at Anfield on Sunday by being on their best behaviour and paying respect to the 96 Liverpool supporters that lost their lives at Hillsborough 23 years ago. Also: Brendan Rodgers praised the Liverpool debutants Andre Wisdom and Suso for "seizing their opportunity" after Young Boys were beaten in a chaotic Europa League tie in Switzerland.

THE INDEPENDENT: The England manager, Roy Hodgson, said yesterday that the new £1bn annual Premier League television rights deal will make it even harder for English players to command first-team places, to the detriment of the national side. Also: The difficulties and frustrations of the Europa League were made clear at Spurs last night.
