Jose Mourinho will today answer the critics for the first time since the controversy over Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro blew up.
The Blues' stuttering start to their Premier League title defence has paled in insignificance due to the incident towards the end of Saturday's 2-2 draw with Swansea.
Chelsea boss Mourinho was visibly infuriated to see head physiotherapist Jon Fearn and first-team doctor Carneiro run on to the field to give Eden Hazard treatment.
The Portuguese told the media afterwards that their "impulsive and naive" decision showed they did not "understand the game" and, since then, Press Association Sport has learned Carneiro's role at Chelsea is changing significantly.
While remaining as first-team doctor, she will no longer be involved in matches and training sessions - a situation Fearn is also reported to find himself in.
The move has led to widespread criticism, which Mourinho will face up to for the first time at 12.30pm on Friday as Chelsea have called a press conference to preview the trip to Manchester City.
