One photo has summed up an all-round torrid day for Jose Mourinho.

His side's 2-1 defeat to West Ham at Upton Park turned out to be just one moment in a litany of forgettable moments for the Chelsea manager.

After witnessing Nemanja Matic receive his marching orders before half time, Mourinho allegedly tried to access the referee's dressing room to remonstrate with the official at the break: a move he was duly sent to the stands for at the start of the second half.

Surrounded by a legion of West Ham fans and members of the Hammers board, Jose Mourinho watched on as Andy Carroll headed the winning goal for the home side, sending those around Mourinho into raptures - and the marvellous moment was caught in one fantastic photo of contrasting emotions.

Spot the despondent Chelsea manager...

Andy Carroll's goal capped off an horrendous afternoon for the Portuguese, who also had to endure the goading of Eastenders actor, Danny Dyer whilst in the West Ham stands.

The Eastenders actor can be seen shuffling passed the Chelsea manager before turning to him and asking: "You alright son?"

Jose Mourinho might have thought his luck wasn't in from early on in the game as Kurt Zouma's header came within millimetres of crossing the goaline.

Goaline technology later showed that the ball had come tantalising close to giving Chelsea the lead.

Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff refused to fulfil any of their media obligations after the defeat which leaves them 15th in the Premier League on 11 points.
