Jose Mourinho has been accused of 'losing the plot' during Chelsea's first Premier League win of the season against West Brom yesterday by the Sun.
According to the newspaper, the Special One stuck his tongue out at John Terry after the Blues defender was sent off, and bellowed into a pitch-side microphone at the full time whistle.
Mourinho has been under pressure in recent weeks thanks to a slow start in the Premier League and the controversy surrounding club doctor Eva Carneiro.

Despite bagging their first three points of the season against West Brom yesterday it was far from a straight forward win, with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois saving a penalty early on before Terry received his marching orders after 54 minutes for a foul on new West Brom signing Salomon Rondon.
However there was some good news for Chelsea and Mourinho, with new signing Pedro making an instant impact by scoring on his debut and teeing up another in the 3-2 win.
Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure so far this season and the Sun claim that the stress is starting to show on the Portuguese boss which manifested itself during yesterday's game.
He took his frustrations out on referee Mark Clattenburg who dismissed Terry, who was the focus of attention after being substituted at half-time against Manchester City last week, insisting that his club captain should have been on the field at the end of the game.
‘I don't want to make (anything of the red card),’ Mourinho told reporters. ‘To speak about that I have to speak about many other things in the game, some things you can see, others we can see. And so many things.
‘One striker push one defender, it's a foul, it's not a foul. Stop the game in midfield it's a yellow card, it's not a yellow card. So I prefer to concentrate on us. With one player less, we are getting experience of that, we adapted well. We controlled the game, had the best chances to score the fourth goal, and I'm happy with the spirit.’
Is Jose Mourinho starting to lose the plot at Chelsea?
