Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands for the second time this season as Manchester United’s Old Trafford woes continued in a 1-1 draw against West Ham on Sunday.
United’s last home victory in the Premier League came on September 24 and this was their fourth consecutive league draw on their own turf.
And Mourinho’s frustrations boiled over when he was ordered to leave the touchline by referee Jon Moss after kicking a water bottle in the first half following a foul given against Paul Pogba for a dive.
West Ham made a rapid start and Diafra Sakho threatened to inflict a second home defeat of the campaign on the Red Devils with a goal after 90 seconds.
United were quickly back on level terms thanks to Zlatan Ibrahimovic but, despite introducing Wayne Rooney and Henrikh Mkhitaryan off the bench, the Red Devils were unable to find a winning goal – although Jesse Lingard did see one ruled out with 15 minutes remaining.
Another home draw leaves United in sixth, four points adrift of Tottenham, while West Ham climb a place to 16th after a stoic defensive showing.
