England captain Steven Gerrard has voiced his concern that Liverpool teammate Luis Suarez has not discussed the 2014 World Cup draw, reports Adrian Kajumba of the Daily Star.
The Liverpool striker has been in sublime form this season, including his role in the 5-0 demolition of Spurs on Sunday.
But Gerrard is concerned that the Uruguay international has withdrawn from any post-draw banter after England were placed in the same group as the South Americans:
He is usually quite chirpy in and around the training ground, but since the draw was made he has been quiet.
He hasn't said much anything and has gone down the silent road, which is a bit of a worry.
He is certainly a player we will have to keep quiet in that game if we are to get a result because, as you've seen most of the season, he is a matchwinner.
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is lining up a transfer coup with a move for Southampton and England striker Rickie Lambert, reports the Daily Mirror.
Speculation over who will succeed Steve Clarke at West Bromwich Albion has thrown a number of possibilities, according to the papers on Monday.
Former Manchester United player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a candidate, according to Dave Armitage of the Daily Star, while former Manchester United assistant boss Mike Phelan is also a leading candidate, reports Stuart James of The Guardian. James Nursey of the Daily Mirror says former Albion boss Roberto Di Matteo could return.
Former Chelsea and Italy star Gianfranco Zola is on the verge of leaving Watford after five consecutive home defeats, claims Mike Walters of the Daily Mirror.
