Jose Mourinho may have been expecting a few hurtful chants on his return to Old Trafford, but the Tottenham coach probably wasn't expecting pain of a physical nature.

Mourinho returned to Old Trafford as a manager for the first time since being sacked by Manchester United almost a year ago, with the new Spurs boss looking for his fourth win in a row.
