With frustrations and tempers reaching lofty levels, Jose Mourinho might be starting to lose his cool a bit. The Chelsea boss was sent off at halftime of the club's Premier League clash with West Ham United for attempting to enter the referee's room.

The first half was bitterly unlucky for the the Blues as the lineman missed a terrible offside call against Chelsea. Cesc Fabregas was played in on goal and finished superbly, but the linesman's flag went up and nullified the equalizer. Replays showed that the borderline call was likely the wrong one. You can judge for yourself.

Chelsea were frustrated even further when they had a ball cleared off the line that goal line technology showed was millimeters away from crossing the line.

To make matters even worse, Nemanja Matic was sent off right before the halftime whistle after receiving his second yellow card. That was likely the event that sent Jose over the edge and caused him to get sent to the stands.
