Chelsea vs Manchester United
When the Premier League restarts after the international break, the big match in round nine sees Chelsea host Manchester United.
Chelsea are joint-top of the league with 18 points from eight games.
Man United are eighth in the division with 13 points on the board.
Jose Mourinho after Newcastle
On Tuesday, the likes of the Times and the Sun have joined forces to reveal that Jose Mourinho may be banned for the Chelsea game.
Last weekend Man United came from behind to beat Newcastle 3-2 in the league.
Two issues have since cropped up about Mourinho’s post match antics.
Firstly, Mourinho is accused of swearing in Portuguese. Secondly, there’s issue of Mourinho’s cryptic little finger gesture.
Will Man United’s manager be banned when they take on Chelsea? The Times report:
Mourinho is alleged to have said “fodas filhos de puta” which translates as “f**k off, sons of bitches”, while making a gesture with his little finger.
The rant could have been directed at those who have been critical of his management, which includes television pundits such as Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand.
Mourinho… could be fined or banned from the touchline for United’s fixture against Chelsea, his former club, a week on Saturday.

Is there a manhunt against Mourinho?
If Mourinho is punished by the FA for what happened after Newcastle, is this evidence that there is a manhunt against the Man United boss?
Mourinho played the victim card after the win over the Magpies.
"If tomorrow it rains in London it is my fault. If there are some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault." ☔
Jose Mourinho claimed there is a "manhunt" against him following his side's win against Newcastle United. 😳
