Previews to Sunday's clash against United with the tabloids taking the angle of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger asking Glenn Hoddle to do him a favour against United when they met at Wednesday's reserve clash at Barnet. The Mirror says Blackburn midfielder David Dunn has been offered to us and Chelsea for £5m.

Jamie Redknapp's return again - this time the papers report the midfielder's suggestion that he'd jump at the chance of featuring again before the end of the season. The Express, meanwhile, links uswith Birmingham City's Christophe Dugarry.

Most papers run a few pars to report Jamie Redknapp's return from injury for the reserves against Arsenal on Wednesday night.

The Express runs a story with Anthony Gardner that first appeared in the Evening Stadard where the defender reveals that Glenn Hoddle had a few choice words to say after last week's defeat against Manchester City.

Anthony is quoted: "The gaffer had a few words to say to us after the defeat by Manchester City and he was right. What he said needed to be out in the open.

"Since I've been here, that is the angriest I have ever seen him and to be honest all the players thought he was justified."

All match reports from Monday's 3-2 at West Brom.

No Spurs news in Monday's newspapers.
