Jose Mourinho: Chelsea manager to be in dugout for Liverpool match

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side have lost five Premier League games this season

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is expected to be in the dugout for Saturday's Premier League game against Liverpool despite facing a misconduct charge.

Mourinho faces disciplinary action after being sent off in last week's 2-1 defeat by West Ham.

But those matters are not expected to be dealt with before the 12:45 GMT kick-off at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho, 52, has also lodged an appeal with the Football Association against a separate suspended stadium ban.

Chelsea and West Ham were charged with failing to control their players and have until 18:00 GMT on Thursday to respond.

Mourinho was sent to the stands after going to speak to referee Jon Moss in his room at half-time and he watched the second half from the directors' box at Upton Park.

He also refused to take part in the post-match news conference.

The defeat was the champions' fifth in the league this season and leaves them 15th in the table.

Mourinho received a suspended stadium ban this month following comments he made about match officials after Chelsea's 3-1 home defeat by Southampton on 3 October.

The latest charge is unlikely to trigger his ban but Mourinho could face a further suspension for his actions at Upton Park.
