Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has received a one-match touchline ban after being sent to the stands in Sunday's match against West Ham, the Football Association has announced.

Mourinho was banished from the sideline after kicking a water-bottle in fury following Paul Pogba's booking for a dive last weekend. The Man United boss was previously sent to the stands earlier this season during a home clash with Burnley and has also been charged for comments about referee Anthony Taylor in the build-up to his side's clash with Liverpool.

However, despite getting slapped with a ban by the FA, it won't impact Mourinho's attempt to revive Man United's Premier League fortunes.

ESPN's Mark Ogden is reporting that Mourinho will serve his touchline suspension during tonight's EFL Cup quarter-final against West Ham at Old Trafford, leaving him free to return to the dugout this weekend against Everton.
