Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has claimed Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has the wrong attitude on the touchline ahead of Sunday's Premier League showdown between the two sides at Anfield.

The Sunday World back page is dominated by Van Gaal's claims that Klopp needs to "control himself" on the touchline, as the United boss has hit back at critics who claim he is too placid during a match.

“Every manager has his own identity and his own personality and also his own philosophy," claims Van Gaal. 

“You can influence by changing players or communicating with players and that is why I sometimes come to the line. “But I don’t stand there for 90 minutes, I don’t agree with that.”

We have a comprehensive preview of one of the most eagerly awaited fixtures of the Premier League season, with Liverpool goal scoring great John Aldridge offering his spin on a game that always means so much to both clubs.

Ken Lawrence has a story suggesting Klopp will spark a huge clear out of talent at Liverpool this summer, with sick note striker Daniel Sturridge among those in the firing line.

Southampton's insistence that Shane Long will not be sold despite transfer interest from Liverpool shares the back page honours, while Arsene Wenger tells us that this could be his season to end Arsenal's lengthy trophy drought.
