Mourinho labelled Albion’s Jonas Olsson a ‘Mickey Mouse player’ and West Brom a ‘Mickey Mouse club’ after the controversial game at Stamford Bridge three months ago. Ramires went down for a controversial penalty in the fourth and final minute of injury time that enraged West Brom and Eden Hazard got Mourinho and Chelsea off the hook with a 2-2 draw. Players had to be pulled apart in the tunnel by stewards and officials after the game as a huge row erupted. Olsson stood face to face with Mourinho and told him to ‘Shut up and ---- off’.

Baggies manager Steve Clarke was sacked just weeks later and his successor, Pepe Mel, said: “I think it is possible that the players will use being called ‘Mickey Mouse’ as motivation for this game.
