Jose Mourinho suspended for the reason of a two-match touchline ban after being sent to the manger stands for the second time in less than a month as Manchester United falls to their worst ever start to a Premier League season.
Jose Mourinho booted a water bottle down the touchline in frustration after watching Paul Pogba booked for diving in the first half and was promptly dismissed by referee Jonathan Moss and the Portuguese’s mood only soured further as United were held to a fourth successive home draw in the Premier League.
The result leaves United 11 points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea and eight behind Arsenal in fourth. United have won only 2 of their past 10 league matches and against Everton on away and Spurs at home in their next two league fixtures.
Jose Mourinho side-stepped his post-match media duties given that there was no obligation to speak to the press after his sending off but Rui Faria, his assistant, admitted the manager had been left exasperated by Moss’s decision to book Pogba, who had dived out of the way of a challenge from West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble in the 28th minute. Pogba is now suspended for the EFL Cup quarter-final against West Ham at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
