While many of the papers are necessarily cautious about what referee Mark Clattenburg may or may not have said to one or more Chelsea players, the Daily Mail has ploughed in as judge, jury and executioner.
"Meet Mister Controversy" runs the headline on a true hatchet job on the man who took charge of the fieriest match of the season, pulling out a series of controversial incidents in the career of the man "who is always happy to be the centre of attention in a world of glitz and glamour". It's illustrated in stunning fashion with Clattenburg gurning his features into an unbelievable grimace that's nothing short of an impression of Dick Dastardly.
Among the five incidents cited are a light-hearted comment poking a bit of fun at Craig Bellamy; a suspension that was later overturned on appeal; the fact that he applied the rules to the letter when Heurelho Gomes's blunder after assuming a foul was given when it hadn't been; and the fact that he didn't see Pedro Mendes's famous phantom goal against Roy Carroll from a full 50 yards away back in 2005.
The Sun's take on the story is summed up in its one-word headline: Clattenberk.
The Times, in common with several other papers, run a side story on Alex Ferguson whingeing about refereeing decisions. Even on a day when his opponents had two men sent off and one of the match officials allegedly went as far as calling two of them deeply unpleasant names, the United boss couldn't help grumbling about past injustices at Stamford Bridge, saying, "It's very difficult to come down here and get a decision."
In other news, Mark Hughes will be fired unless his QPR side beat Reading next weekend, the Daily Mail reports, with a number of officials at the West London club having "lost patience with the manager".
Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has won his power struggle with Brian Marwood at Eastlands, the Sun reports.
Marwood has apparently been removed from his role as football administrator, in which he is said to have infuriated Mancini with his dealings in the player transfer market.
Mancini will now have former Barcelona coach Txiki Begiristain (no, we've no idea how it's pronounced either) as Director of Football to help him through the minefield of the modern transfer market.
And finally, Newcastle have beaten off interest from Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton and Fulham to sign Toulouse's France international midfielder Moussa Sissoko, the Sun claims.
The 23-year-old's contract is up at the end of the season, and he will sign a pre-contract agreement to join the Magpies.
