- Mourinho sent to stands again
- United held at home by West Ham
(CNN)Another weekend, another trying afternoon on the touchline for Jose Mourinho.
The Manchester United boss was sent to the stands by referee Jonathan Moss on Sunday after kicking a drinks bottle in frustration during a 1-1 draw with West Ham United at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese was shown a red card midway through a lively first half on the pitch, in which the visitors went ahead through Diafra Sakho's header after just 90 seconds of play.

Chelsea 31 pts
Man City 30
Man Utd 20
United was soon back on equal terms when Zlatan Ibrahimovic nodded in Paul Pogba's cross in the 21st minute.
Moments later world-record signing Pogba was booked for diving, causing an angry reaction from Mourinho, who was then given his marching orders.
It's the second time this season that Mourinho has been ordered off.
In October in a 0-0 draw against Burnley, the 53-year-old confronted referee Mark Clattenburg at halftime after United had a penalty appeal turned down in the first half.
The ex-Chelsea boss was also fined £50,000 by the English Football Association this season for comments he made in the media about referee Anthony Taylor ahead of United's game with northwest rivals Liverpool.
Mourinho said it would "be difficult for (Taylor) to have a very good performance."
The draw keeps United in sixth place but now 11 points adrift of Premier League leader Chelsea. The Blues ended London rival Tottenham Hotspur's unbeaten league run with a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
West Ham, meanwhile, moved above Crystal Palace into 16th place with 12 points from 13 games.
