The "crisis" at Manchester United continues, as Louis van Gaal has fired warning shots to his underperforming players. 

Roy Hodgson has warned Luke Shaw about his fitness, and Cristiano Ronaldo taunted Liverpool after Real Madrid were drawn in the same Champions League group as the Reds. 

The Sun pits Gareth Bale vs. Cristiano Ronaldo on its cover, along with its Van Gaal story under the headline "I'll Rip Up United," as he's vowed to cut loose any dead weight:

Daily Express leads with Hodgson's words for Shaw and also Ronaldo's quotes that Liverpool's last win against Madrid only happened because Ronaldo wasn't playing:
