The top stories making Monday’s back pages in the UK…

The Sun: Jose Mourinho has pleaded with Roman Abramovich: Let me put things right with a January clear-out.

Also: Willian is set for a bumper new deal to keep him out of the clutches of Chelsea’s European rivals.

And: Jurgen Klopp blamed the Liverpool players for making him feel like he was walking alone after his first defeat.

Plus: Swansea are on the verge of sacking Garry Monk.

Daily Mirror: Derby boss Paul Clement will go back with another bid for West Ham’s forgotten forward Michail Antonio in January.

Also: Garry Monk is set to be fired as Swansea manager.

And: Arsene Wenger hailed his Arsenal team’s fightback even though Olivier Giroud was left “angry” at missing the chance to head them back on top in the title race.

Plus: Jurgen Klopp admitted he felt “pretty alone” because of the Anfield exodus during his first defeat as Liverpool boss.

Daily Star: Jose Mourinho looks certain to be given even more time to turn around Chelsea’s disastrous season.

Also: Arsene Wenger last night claimed Arsenal were a man down before Kieran Gibbs rescued a precious point against Spurs.

And: Injured Luke Shaw may have cost Manchester United £30m – but he is now ‘The Six Million Dollar Man’.

Daily Mail: It is the worst title defence in Barclays Premier League history but, at least for now, Chelsea maintain they will not sack Jose Mourinho.

Also: There have been too many false dawns, too many imagined changes of the guard for too much to be read into this, just yet. But did Tottenham look like a coming force in the Premier League, young and bright and bound to improve? Yes. And were Arsenal beset by some all too familiar problems that could yet hinder what many believe should be their best tilt at the title in many years? Yes, yes and, again, yes.

And: Jurgen Klopp admitted he was left feeling ‘pretty alone’ as he witnessed an Anfield exodus after losing his unbeaten record.

Also: Manchester United want to snap up Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez in January, according to reports.

Daily Telegraph: The cost of Chelsea’s disastrous season could run to more than £100 million for owner Roman Abramovich as he considers whether sacking manager Jose Mourinho would trigger a turnaround in fortunes.

Also: This will be seen as the day Jürgen Klopp realised he not only had to rebuild a Liverpool team, but had to have the same galvanising impact on the whole stadium.

And: There is still a question about whether there are enough goals beyond Harry Kane but the work that Mauricio Pochettino has done over these past 18 months to build a Tottenham team in his own image is clear.

The Times: Jürgen Klopp admitted that he was left feeling “pretty alone” as Scott Dann’s 82nd-minute goal for Crystal Palace, which ultimately proved decisive, prompted an exodus of Liverpool fans at Anfield.

Also: Arsène Wenger revealed last night that Olivier Giroud was overcome by anger and self-reproach after failing to score a winner in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.
