The top stories making the back pages of Tuesday's newspapers in the United Kingdom...

The Sun: Laurent Blanc is a shock late contender to snatch the Manchester United job from Jose Mourinho.

Also: Jamie Vardy is today expected to receive an extra one-match ban — ruling him out of Sunday’s potential title-clincher at Manchester United.

And: Dele Alli could be banned for the rest of Tottenham’s title run-in. He appeared to PUNCH Claudio Yacob in the stomach as Spurs’ Prem hopes suffered a crushing blow.

Daily Mirror: Radamel Falcao has been told he has no future at Chelsea - and has now had an offer to join Roma.

Also: Leicester are just one win from the Premier League title after West Brom held Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

And: Dele Alli could face a three match ban and trial by television after Tottenham’s title hopes suffered a major blow.

Daily Star: The Hotspurs were Flopspurs last night as Tottenham wrecked their title bid.

Also: Juan Mata has hit out at his peers after admitting footballers earn too much and turn into big-time Charlie rock stars.

And: Vincent Kompany has ordered Manchester City to stop Cristiano Ronaldo from wrecking their Champions League dream.

Daily Mail: Dominic Solanke wants £50,000 a week and the promise of first-team opportunities if he is to sign a new contract at Chelsea.

Also: Leicester will win the league if they beat Manchester United on Sunday. That is it, the bottom line. Yet this may only be part of the misery for Tottenham, on a night of consequences.

Daily Express: Guus Hiddink has played down speculation linking Eden Hazard with a move away from Chelsea this summer.

Also: Jamie Vardy has been handed an additional one-match ban following his sending off against West Ham earlier this month.

And: Vincent Kompany has told his Manchester City team-mates they must produce the game of their lives to beat Real Madrid.

Daily Telegraph: For a player who is so self-aware – and who can be so self-critical – Eliaquim Mangala has faced some brutal analysis since he joined Manchester City.

Also: West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis had said that he wants Leicester City to win the Premier League title and he certainly did his best to make sure his wish comes true.

The Times: Manuel Pellegrini has instructed his Manchester City team to play with “hot hearts” and “cold minds” against Real Madrid on the biggest night in the club’s history.

Also: What seemed like the impossible dream can become glorious reality for Claudio Ranieri and his wonderful players at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday.

The Guardian: At the final whistle it was a sudden, damp silence. Tottenham Hotspur’s players knew in those moments they had almost certainly blown it.

Also: Jamie Vardy will miss Leicester City’s chance to seal the Premier League title at Manchester United on Sunday after an independent regulatory commission imposed an additional one-match suspension following the Football Association’s decision to charge the England forward with improper conduct in relation to his dismissal against West Ham United.

And: Roberto Martínez’s position as Everton manager will be discussed this week by the club’s board of directors, with the Catalan struggling to save his three‑year tenure at Goodison Park.
