Jose Mourinho in scuffle on return to Stamford Bridge

Pogba struggled to take charge defending set-pieces

Mourinho had to be restrained by stewards before Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri managed to reconcile the Manchester United manager.

He told BBC Sport: "I didn't see what happened but I have spoken to Jose Mourinho".

The Blues initially hit the front after Antonio Rudiger capitalised on their dominance in the first half before an Anthony Martial brace in the second appeared to have handed Sarri his first Premier League defeat, before Ross Barkley struck at the death to rescue a point.

Manchester United emerged undefeated at Stamford Bridge for the first time in Jose Mourinho's four visits to his old club, but Chelsea were the more grateful of the two sides for a point in a thrilling 2-2 draw on Saturday.

There remain several stylistic and tactical problems in this team but the desire of each player to give everything on the pitch is certainly there.


Martial's composed equaliser transformed a game in which United had been outplayed for the first 55 minutes. "I spoke immediately with the member of my staff and I told him to speak with Mourinho and say sorry".

He also didn't need to hit back at the Chelsea fans, but when you throw away three points you so desperately want with nearly the last kick of the game, it would be testing the resolve of anyone, never mind someone as emotional as Mourinho. Mourinho said afterwards that he accepted Ianni's apology in the aftermath. "We were in the wrong on the situation".

"This season, for Sarri to come in and only make one or two change, Mateo Kovacic I think has been a huge acquisition for them and Jorginho have fitted in seamlessly". "Then after the goal of Martial, we did not play our football". He said: "We are not organised like this".

Nevertheless, that was a phenomenal game for the Frenchman, who put both Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford to shame by finding the net twice in a hard game - something the other two have been struggling to do at the best of times at United.

It all took place after Barkley made it 2-2 in the 96th minute to earn the draw. However, ultimately, I am disappointed. Nobody needs that level of taunting when you have conceded what was a sickening goal to lose at any time in the game, not merely in the final minute of added time. "I want to play with short passes, stop". "We always tried to play, there was no time-wasting". I don't want to go for the second ball. I don't want the long ball and to go to the second ball.
