Mourinho in more strife, FA tipped to act

Press AssociationPress Association 27/11/2016 Andy Hampson

Jose Mourinho is facing more disciplinary trouble after being sent off the for second time this season as Manchester United were held by West Ham.

The United boss was dismissed by referee Jon Moss for reacting angrily and kicking a water bottle after Paul Pogba was booked for diving during Sunday's 1-1 Premier League draw at Old Trafford.

Mourinho has already served one touchline ban this season after disputing a decision during last month's draw against Burnley.

He has also been disciplined for comments about referee Anthony Taylor - who was coincidentally the fourth official on Sunday - before a game at Liverpool.

Further scrutiny of his behaviour in what has been a frustrating start to the campaign came after an odd touchline exchange with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

This latest disappointing result was United's fourth successive home draw in the league - a sequence they have not endured since 1980 - while their points return from 13 games, 20, is their worst since 1989-90.

The Football Association is bound to consider action against the latest touchline incident after they receive the report from Moss, who also sent off then Chelsea manager Mourinho at West Ham last season.

Mourinho did not speak to media after the game, instead leaving assistant Rui Faria to express his frustration.
