Chelsea coach Mourinho tossed

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho faces more trouble from the English Football Association after being sent to the stands as the champions' poor Premier League form worsened with a 2-1 loss at West Ham. Mourinho was red-carded at halftime after Cesc Fabregas had a goal disallowed for offside, moments before Chelsea teammate Nemanja Matic was sent off for a second bookable offense. Earlier this season Mourinho was fined $77,000 and given a suspended one-match stadium ban for comments about referee Robert Madley following a loss at home to Southampton. -- AP
