Mourinho plays down touchline melee after 'awful' Chelsea draw

Mourinho plays down touchline melee after 'awful' Chelsea draw”

Ross Barkley's equaliser for Chelsea salvaged their unbeaten Premier League run after a brace from Anthony Martial had put Sarri's side on the brink of defeat for the first time this season.

It was a must win game for United, with key second half performances from Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial, who proved the doubters wrong with a sublime individual effort against the previously undefeated Chelsea. However, Chelsea secured a point in the dying seconds of the game through substitute Ross Barkley. "I have spoken with the member of my staff and then I bring him to speak with Mourinho to say sorry to him".

"We controlled their triggers, Hazard and Jorginho were well controlled, I've never seen Jorginho play so little like today".

The United boss has been given an extension until Wednesday to answer a Football Association charge of using abusive, insulting or improper language following the victory over Newcastle.

The United manager jumped from his seat and hurled himself towards the member of staff, clearly enraged, and a huge melee ensued by the tunnel, with staff, players and security all getting involved. Security from both sides pushed their way in and at one point Mourinho was temporarily immobilised by the bear-hug of one of Chelsea's biggest matchday stewards.

"Sarri said he would solve the problem with his assistant internally and he then came to me and apologised and I said if he really meant it then okay, I accept".

The Red Devils have found themselves under pressure in recent weeks after a stuttering start to the new season for Jose Mourinho's men.

"I hope every referee does the same as Mike Dean and gives six minutes", he added. For everybody's enjoyment, here are the best Twitter reactions following this game and everything which happened around the action on the pitch... We knew Chelsea did not sign the player they thought. He said: "We are not organised like this". "We defend mixed, so some players are in zones and some have individual opponents".

"But if someone has to be the man, I would prefer it to be myself than my players".

He said: "At this type of football, United is better than us".

Hazard has been in fine form for Chelsea this term, managing eight goals and three assists in 10 appearances in all competitions, with seven of those strikes coming in the Premier League.
