Eva Carneiro is to make an individual claim against Mourinho
Former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro is to make an individual legal claim against the side's manager, Jose Mourinho.

She’s already taking action against the club for constructive dismissal.

This second move means Mourinho will have to appear at an employment tribunal if the case isn't settled out of court.

He criticised his medical staff treating Eden Hazard on the pitch in the first match of the season leaving the team with nine men in a 2-2 draw against Swansea.

Chelsea striker told he won't face more punishment
It's understood Chelsea striker Diego Costa won't face any punishment over an incident with Liverpool's Martin Skrtel at the weekend.

He seemed to kick out after tangling with the defender, before referee Mark Clattenberg stepped in.

Football Association rules say if something's already been spotted by match officials, players cannot face retrospective sanctions.

Costa has already served a three-match ban this season - after clashing with Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista.

New cancer-awareness campaign launched
A thought-provoking campaign to help people in the South East of England ‘Spot Cancer Sooner’ is being launched.

According to Cancer Research UK over 44,000 people in the area each year, are given the devastating news that they have the disease.

But survival for some of the most common types is known to be more than three times higher when they are diagnosed earlier.
