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.

Mo Farah received a rapturous reception as he won the 3,000m at the London 2012 Anniversary Games.

The double Olympic Champion was cheered from the moment he took to the track to crossing the line in seven minutes 24.66 seconds.

The 32-year-old hit the front with two-and-a-half laps to go before striding away down the home straight to claim a commanding triumph at the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games.

The Londoner's time was the fastest in the world this year and another confidence boost as he builds up to the defence of his 5,000 and 10,000m titles at the World Championships in Beijing next month.

Farah has come in for heavy scrutiny after it was alleged Salazar, head coach at the Nike Oregon Project in Portland, had violated anti-doping rules.

The Briton has not been accused of any wrong-doing, while Salazar himself has strongly denied the allegations.
