The Sun claim Rafael , suspended for United's next game, could face further sanctions due to his angry reaction to the dismissal. The paper says the defender confronted Mike Dean, "making a mockery of the Respect campaign".
Meanwhile, Jonn Dillon, writing in The Express, praises the Reds for a display full of character and grit. He writes: "The journey back from the brink remains a slow and tortuous one for Wayne Rooney but it presents no great worry for Manchester United while the whole team continue their communal wait to really get started again... Just because United are not playing with their familiar dazzle just now, it does not mean they are not still working to the principles which have made them so successful."
