Carneiro fallout

It seems the fallout from Jose Mourinho’s actions regarding Dr Eva Carneiro is far from gone, with the Special One staring down the possibility of receiving a five-game touchline ban.

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who say evidence has been submitted to the Football Association arguing that Mourinho was sexist towards his former club doctor.

It’s safe to say the Blues boss probably didn’t anticipate the backlash from when he berated Carneiro for treating Eden Hazard during the 2-2 Premier League draw with Swansea City, but it could get a whole lot worse for him yet.

Lampard backs Terry

In other news, Frank Lampard has backed John Terry to recover from his current malaise with regards to losing his first-team spot at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard, who was himself let go by Mourinho in 2014, claimed Terry would be an important part of Chelsea for a few years yet. That’s despite the fact it looks like Mourinho’s is phasing Terry out in favour of Kurt Zouma.

Falcao free-kick

Lastly, Radamel Falcao was the subject of ridicule last night after producing a frankly terrible effort from a free-kick.

The ex-Manchester United forward slipped as he went to take a set-piece against Walsall in the Capital One Cup. As expected fans were quick to take to Twitter in order to offer somewhat one-sided opinions.
