The Sun pick up on Wayne Rooney joining Twitter - no doubt a source they'll be exploiting - and the same paper claims he's the man Schalke fear on Tuesday. Christoph Metzelder is quoted as saying: "It's all about stopping Rooney, he's the key player. Against Chelsea he dropped into the midfield, so it's important to defend against him not only with the defensive line but also with the midfielders."
Carlo Ancelotti's comments in the Daily Mirror suggest he is drawing inspiration in the title race from his own Juventus' collapse in 2000, when they lost out to Lazio. "I lost a title nine points up with eight games to go. It can happen. It's not a nice feeling. It was very difficult to think two months ago that we could stay with the lead so for this reason, at this moment, we are happy."
The Daily Star suggests Charlie Adam is Liverpool-bound despite being linked with United in some quarters. Apparently, the Blackpool captain "has always fancied playing under Kenny Dalglish" which is a little surprising considering the Anfield boss has been out of management for so long.
