Jose Mourinho is set to face the media today for the first time since his row with club doctor Eva Carneiro exploded in the aftermath of the 2-2 draw against Swansea last weekend.
And he is likely to face some intense questioning after it was claimed that the Special One uttered an offensive phrase in Portuguese that roughly translates as "son of a bitch” or “mother******”.
Carneiro and Chelsea physio Jon Fearn were criticised by Mourinho for running on to the pitch in the dying minutes of the Blues' opening day draw against Garry Monk's side to treat Eden Hazard - despite the fact they were summoned by referee Michael Oliver.

Mourinho described the pair as 'naive' and 'impulsive' for the move which meant Hazard had to leave the pitch, which meant that Chelsea had to defend a late set piece with just nine players following the earlier dismissal of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Carneiro has since been told that she will no longer be on the bench during matchdays but will remain employed by the club, and Mourinho is facing increased criticism for his actions.
Now the former Real Madrid boss is likely to face a barrage of questions from the media in his press conference in the build up to the game against Manchester City on Sunday.
His case wasn't helped by footage uploaded by a user last night which seemed to show Mourinho throwing insults in the doctor's direction. The video, which has now been deleted, shows the Chelsea boss shouting at the pair as they run on to the pitch before uttering the offensive phrase.
Mourinho will today deny that he aimed the insult at anyone in particular and acted in frustration instead, and Chelsea have backed their manager over the incident.
Do you think Mourinho was WRONG to publicly criticise his staff after the Swansea draw?
