Jose Mourinho is definitely irreplaceable at Chelsea – as he misses out on their clash with Stoke tonight due to a stadium ban.
And he’s also totally missed out on the team sheets for the game at the Britannia Stadium as the manager spot was left blank when handed into referee Anthony Taylor and his officials.
Jake Cohen managed to get a picture of the team sheet filled out by the Chelsea team:

Mourinho misses out tonight as he serves a one-match stadium ban for his criticism of referee Jonathan Moss at half-time of Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to West Ham last month.
He was also hit with a £40,000 fine by the FA, but decided against appealing the punishment.
According to the Portuguese boss, he wasn’t going to fight something he knew he was going to lose.
Mourinho is instead watching the game on a TV at Chelsea’s team hotel near Stoke’s Britannia Stadium.
