Much of Monday's newspaper coverage discusses the weekend's moments of controversy at Goodison Park.

Seamus Coleman went to ground inside the box against Tottenham on Sunday, but the full-back's willingness to get to his feet and play on is why Roberto Martinez feels a spot-kick was not awarded by referee Kevin Friend.

The manager's quotes appear in the Liverpool Echo, who also spoke to Steven Pienaar after the 0-0 draw.

The South African discusses his recent return from injury and insists his partnership with Leighton Baines will soon be back to its best.

Meanwhile, the accidental collision between Romelu Lukaku and Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris appears in several paper columns, with the Frenchman left unconscious before returning to the field of play - despite medical advice to the contrary.

And the Daily Mail pick up on a delibrate elbow from Tottenham's Roberto Soldado on Phil Jagielka, with former referee Graham Poll highlighting the incident and insisting the Spaniard should have received a straight red card.

North of the border, the Daily Record claim an exclusive by linking the Blues with a swoop for Dundee United's teenage centre-half John Souttar in a £1million deal. The story on the 17-year-old also appears in the Mirror.
