It’s a big weekend in the Premier League, with two massive derby matches taking place and a handful of other key matches for teams expected to be at the top and bottom of the table.
Unsurprisingly, the national newspapers reflect the excitement of some big matches, with players and managers alike offering some headline-grabbing quotes for the public.
Some involve transfers, others the plan to stay rather than search for pastures new. Then there is Louis van Gaal at Manchester United and his plans to improve the side.
Finally, a light-hearted finish involving one of the world’s best players in Madrid. But we start closer to home…
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has vowed to solve the injury crisis that is currently plaguing his squad.
The former Bayern Munich manager cited the case of Arjen Robben - a player with an injury track-record - when claiming he knows how to manage players and to keep them fit at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal is currently short of options in defence particularly, and may be forced to turn to some youngsters against West Ham in the league match at Old Trafford.
