Oops! Talk about embarrassing. The Premier League leaked the news today by accident that Jose Mourinho will officially be named manager of Chelsea Football Club on Monday.

It’s not unusual for articles to be pre-written in order to be moved live when the news is officially announced. But in this particular case, someone at the Premier League clicked the publish button before Chelsea have had an opportunity to announce the news.

It’s not as if Jose Mourinho rejoining Chelsea is a secret, or anything.

Here are tonight’s Premier League news headlines:
