Deep into stoppage-time, referee Craig Pawson sent Mourinho to the stands after he appeared to step on to the pitch and accidentally collide with fourth official Mike Jones.

The FA received Pawson’s report on Monday, however, and has decided no further action is necessary.

Mourinho has a history of being in the bad books of the authorities, having been sent to the stands 9 times, while he has been made to sit out of 16 matches so far in his career as a top football manager, reported The Daily Mail.

United maintained their unbeaten start in the league and are second in the standings, behind Manchester City on goal difference.
