John Terry: Injury fear

DAILY MIRROR: John Terry faces an anxious wait today to find out whether his season is over after suffering a freak knee injury. Also: Edin Dzeko last night sent a message to Roberto Mancini with his dramatic late winner for Manchester City.

DAILY STAR: John Terry will discover today if his season is over. Also: West Ham are on the verge of bringing Nicolas Anelka back to the Premier League.

THE SUN: Chelsea fear John Terry's season is over after he suffered a horrific-looking knee injury yesterday. Also: Crystal Palace's £20million-rated wing wonder Wilfried Zaha was last night given a shock England call-up.

DAILY EXPRESS: John Terry faces an anxious wait today to find out if his season has been wrecked by a knee ligament injury. Also: Edin Dzeko reiterated a defiant message to Roberto Mancini after rescuing Manchester City again yesterday.

THE INDEPENDENT: Luis Suarez celebrated his equaliser alone in front of the travelling support yesterday, his team-mates electing to head back into their own half and prepare for the onslaught of the last 20 minutes of the match. Also: Roberto Mancini wasn't ready to grant an audience to the press last night. Manchester City's manager is still bristling about a week or so of criticism, though the explanation for his absence was that his private jet to Italy awaited.

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH: Chelsea captain John Terry will have an MRI scan this morning amid fears that he suffered a serious knee ligament injury during yesterday's 1-1 draw against Liverpool. Also: Brendan Rodgers has attempted to temper expectation among Liverpool's fans by claiming that a top-seven Premier League finish would represent a "fantastic" achievement in his first full season as manager.

Having served his four-match ban for racist abuse, the Chelsea captain gave the club a first-half lead against Liverpool at Stamford bridge, but 15 minutes later was taken from the pitch on a stretcher in visible agony. Also: We could have been in Basle - indeed, there were times when the O2 Arena appeared to be filled to the rafters with red - and, armed with such vocal backing and his own magical resources, Roger Federer secured a place in the final of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals last night.

Also: The Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha was last night persuaded to accept a promotion from the England Under-21s into the senior squad for Wednesday's friendly in Sweden having initially considered rejecting the invitation for fear of jeopardising any future opportunity to play for the country of his birth, Ivory Coast.
