WE take a look at the papers for the latest from Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Queens Park Rangers, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and LA Galaxy.

THE METRO: Chelsea look set to beat Arsenal and Tottenham to the signature of Bolton and England defender Gary Cahill in the January transfer window.

THE SUN: Carlos Tevez must stay away from Manchester City for two weeks while they probe his Munich mutiny. Also: Chelsea’s stars lost their cool as they blew what should have been a Champions League Group E win in Spain.

DAILY MIRROR: Liverpool midfielder Dirk Kuyt has warned Liverpool’s rivals for a top four finish that they will be even better once striker Luis Suarez truly settles into English football.

Furious Roberto Mancini swore at Carlos Tevez after the Manchester City striker refused to play against Bayern Munich. Also: Salomon Kalou left Frank Lampard and his Chelsea team-mates frustrated last night after gifting Valencia an equaliser.

DAILY MAIL: QPR co-owner Amit Bhatia has confirmed the club are interested in making former England midfielder David Beckham Loftus Road’s next big signing in November.

Carlos Tevez was last night suspended by Manchester City for refusing to play against Bayern Munich on Tuesday - and may yet be sacked by the club. Also: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain became the youngest English scorer in the Champions League with the first goal in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Olympiakos at the Emirates.

DAILY STAR: Disgraced Carlos Tevez could face a worldwide ban from football after refusing to play for Manchester City. Also: Frank Lampard bounced back in typical style last night.

DAILY EXPRESS: Carlos Tevez could face a worldwide ban from football after refusing to play for Manchester City. Also: Scotland captain Alastair Kellock has been restored among seven changes in the team for Saturday’s decisive pool game against England from the side who lost to Argentina.

THE TIMES: Carlos Tevez was suspended by Manchester City last night after his act of mutiny 24 hours earlier. Also: Aaron Lennon, the Tottenham Hotspur winger, will make a comeback from injury in the Europa League as he attempts to prove his fitness for Sunday’s Barclays Premier League derby against Arsenal.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: Carlos Tevez has been suspended until further notice and is facing the possibility of the ultimate sanction of dismissal for gross misconduct by Manchester City after refusing to play as a second-half substitute in Tuesday’s Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich. Also: Harry Redknapp has described Carlos Tevez’s behaviour as “beyond belief” but warned that the striker would be “holding all the aces” as Manchester City decide how to deal with him.

THE GUARDIAN: Carlos Tevez has been suspended by Manchester City for two weeks after Roberto Mancini made it clear to the club’s chairman, Khaldoon al-Mubarak, that the player has no way back following his apparent refusal to take part in their Champions League tie at Bayern Munich. Also: Arsene Wenger will take what he can get at present. This narrow victory over arguably the poorest team in Arsenal’s Champions League group sufficed to keep the wolves from the door for another day, although it did little to portray the club as credible contenders.

THE INDEPENDENT: Carlos Tevez was last night suspended for two weeks and told to stay away from Manchester City pending an investigation into his conduct during the Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich, with his club not ruling out the prospect of ripping up his contract and sacking him. Also: Twenty-four hours after one footballer reacted to being dropped by refusing to play another provided the perfect response to his recent omission. Frank Lampard, whose future had become as big and as sensitive an issue at Stamford Bridge as Fernando Torres’ finishing, marked his return to the starting XI with a typically well-taken goal in the 56th minute.
