Another match, another Chelsea defeat, another misconduct charge for Jose Mourinho.

The way this Premier League season is going, that seems to be the cycle as the Chelsea boss has gotten himself in trouble yet again.

Mourinho was sent to the stands during Chelsea’s loss to West Ham over the weekend, as it has been reported that he went off on referee Jon Moss during halftime.

Today, The FA has released a statement that Mourinho has been charged with misconduct, as has his assistant Silvino Louro, who was sent off just moments before the half.

Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct in relation to his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area at half-time.

Chelsea coach Silvino Louro has also been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour which led to his 45th minute dismissal from the technical area.

West Ham have been charged for failing to control their players in the 44th minute of the game and Chelsea have also been charged with the same offence for an alleged breach in the 45th minute of the game.

The charges for failing to control players centered around Nemanja Matic‘s red card, but those charges are not necessarily considered to be a “big deal,” as it will likely result in a small fine.

Mourinho’s charges, however, could have some bigger repercussions. He is currently in the process of appealing a $75,000 fine and suspended stadium ban following his criticism of officials earlier this month. He also refused to speak to the media following the loss to West Ham, which could see him face further punishment.
