Manchester United meltdown shows why Sarri wanted lethal Higuain

Chelsea and Manchester United are expected to be let off with a warning and reminded of their future conduct by the Football Association following the chaotic scenes that marked the closing stages of their 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri confirmed that he and his assistant had apologised to Mourinho straight after the game, with Sarri admitting that his staff were in the wrong.

"Oh come on, I can tell you that the 97 minutes of the game was so good that you have to focus on that", Mourinho told Sky Sports when asked about the incident after the game.

Young, who received praise for how he limited the influence of Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard, told MUTV: "We have to look at the positives, I think we deserved to win it - we got on top. I've matured. I am at a big club now with a lot of expectation and fantastic players around me, and my performances are showing it".

"For me the story is over but don't do what everyone does and say "Mourinho does things", it was Sarri's assistant."I'm not annoyed with anything. Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he would resolve the problem internally", Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Mirror".

Martial volleyed home to cancel out Antonio Rudiger's 21st-minute header before curling in what looked like being the victor from the edge of the penalty area.

And after accepting Ianni's postmatch apology, Mourinho admitted that he could not bear a grudge against the 36-year-old considering his own actions in the past.

Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones have all looked far from comfortable and have made several costly errors and that has prompted Jose Mourinho to use Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay in defense at times. We were on the wrong side of the situation. I want to speak to him again but I dealt with the situation immediately.

"I want to play for three points".

Jose Mourinho wanted to bring in defensive reinforcements in the summer, but the United hierarchy failed to back him in the market. In the second half we managed to transform that on occasions in goals, in ambition, in free-flow play with good intensity, good passing, good quality. If you say before the game that one point at Stamford Bridge is a good result, it is so hard to win here but after the game with the way the game was it is an bad result for us and a phenomenal result for them. The veteran has played all over the pitch for the club and has seen a number of talented players come and go.
