The top stories making Wednesday's back pages in the UK...

The Sun: Roy Keane last night launched his own hairdryer-style attack on Alex Ferguson for lacking loyalty.

Also: Arsenal's Champions League hopes took a blow as they crashed to their first defeat since the opening day.


Daily Mirror: Roy Keane launched a furious attack on Sir Alex Ferguson's integrity last night.

Also: Fernando Torres celebrated his 100th Chelsea start with a win double at Schalke.

And: Jose Mourinho wants Chelsea to buy a big-name striker in January - with Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa on his wish-list.

Plus: Fernando Llorente is keen on a January move to Arsenal - to save his World Cup hopes.


Daily Star: Jose Mourinho last night insisted he had never doubted Fernando Torres.

Also: Sir Alex Ferguson has warned England they have fat chance of winning the World Cup if Wayne Rooney gets out of shape again.

And: Jorginho has broken his silence over a potential move away from Hellas Verona with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool set to launch January bids for his services.


Daily Mail: Sir Alex Ferguson has sensationally settled a string of old scores with a release of his controversial autobiography.

Also: Arsene Wenger insisted Robert Lewandowski was lucky not to be sent off before he hit a late winner to leave Arsenal's Champions League hopes in the balance last night.


Daily Express: Robert Lewandowski showed his real talent by scoring the winner for Borussia Dortmund against Arsenal.

Also: Fernando Torres continued his knack of scoring goals in cup competitions by notching a brace to hand Chelsea victory over Schalke in the Veltins Arena last night.

And: Paris Saint-Germain's talented young midfielder Adrien Rabiot has insisted he won't hesitate to leave the club if the French side continue to bring in big name players in his position to avoid the fate suffered by Liverpool's Mamadou Sakho.


Metro: David Moyes claims he has no concerns the fall-out from Sir Alex Ferguson’s no-holds-barred book will affect Wayne Rooney.

Also: Jack Wilshere has moved to brush off injury fears despite picking up an ankle knock during Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund.


Daily Telegraph: Sir Alex Ferguson claims that he "mellowed a long time ago", instructing any doubters to consult those who played under him. It might be wise to wait for them to cool off first.

Also: Roy Keane last night accused Sir Alex Ferguson of not knowing the meaning of the word "loyalty" after the Scot criticised many of his former players in his memoirs.


The Times: Sir Alex Ferguson was accused last night of lacking loyalty by Roy Keane, who joined David Beckham, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Wayne Rooney among those criticised in the former Manchester United manager's new autobiography.

Also: All John Terry needed was a familiar face.


The Guardian: Roy Keane has accused Sir Alex Ferguson of not knowing the meaning of loyalty after the former Manchester United manager criticised him and other former players at Old Trafford in his new book.

Also: This was not how Arsene Wenger had intended to celebrate his 64th birthday.


The Independent: The most withering criticism in Sir Alex Ferguson's book is reserved for the man who once embodied his will: Roy Keane. And, as Ferguson anticipated, Keane did not take it well.

Also: It was 12 games in all competitions without defeat and, quite frankly, if you are going to lose then the Borussia Dortmund of 2013 are a far more palatable alternative than Norwich City or Crystal Palace, although that will be of no consolation to Arsene Wenger.
