Mourinho: The Football Association has charged Jose Mourinho with improper conduct after the Manchester United manager’s dismissal in Sunday’s draw with West Ham. Mourinho has been given until Thursday to respond to the charge, which comes after he was sent off for the second time this season. Referee Jon Moss disciplined Mourinho when he reacted by kicking a bottle of water on the touchline after Paul Pogba’s booking for diving in the first half of the 1-1 draw.

Pulis: West Brom manager Tony Pulis has been ordered to pay £3.7 million to former club Crystal Palace after losing a High Court fight. A Premier League Managers’ Arbitration Tribunal decided earlier this year that the Welshman should pay £3.7 million in damages after both parties were involved in a dispute over the way he left the club. Pulis challenged the decision but a High Court judge in London has now ruled against him.
