José Mourinho defended his own reaction at the end of Manchester United’s late comeback against Juventus, a victory that saw the United manager ushered from the pitch at the final whistle after cupping his ear and leering provocatively towards the home crowd.
Senior sources at Manchester United have dismissed as “nonsense” claims the club have approached Zinedine Zidane over the prospect of replacing Jose Mourinho as the pressure builds on the manager, with staff members now openly discussing when his reign may come to an end.
With the Premier League's transfer window closing on Thursday, the top title contenders have completed their squad building until January.
Here we look at how the division's elite teams fared in the transfer market and what their prospects are for the coming season:
Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Juventus, becoming one of the four most expensive players of all time.
A deal worth 112m euros (£99.2m) has been reached between the two clubs that has seen the Portuguese sign a four-year deal with the Italian champions.
There was a present for Arsène Wenger before kick-off but it was his team who offered the parting gift as they succumbed to an injury-time goal by substitute Marouane Fellaini that said everything, again, about their poor defending.
Romelu Lukaku broke his barren run against top six Premier League opposition and provided the winner for Jesse Lingard as Manchester United came from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford.
Manchester United have signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, in a swap deal with midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Alexis Sanchez has agreed a four-and-a-half-year contract worth £14million after tax to join Manchester United.
And Sanchez is now just waiting to find out if Henrikh Mkhitaryan will agree a switch in the other direction to Arsenal, which would trigger his move to Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho's recent frustrations continued at Old Trafford as he lost Romelu Lukaku to a worrying head injury in Manchester United's goalless Premier League draw with Southampton on Saturday.
Manchester City took a giant step towards the title as the leaders beat Manchester United 2-1 to clinch a record-equalling 14th successive Premier League victory, while Wayne Rooney's late leveller gave Everton a 1-1 draw at Liverpool on Sunday.
