The Premier League made its grand return from the international break this weekend, with Manchester United travelling to Stamford Bridge in an attempt to break Chelsea‘s undefeated streak.

The Red Devils fell behind in the first half, as Rudiger blindsided Paul Pogba to score from a corner. But Jose Mourinho’s half-time talk seemingly worked once again, as his side looked threatening in the second half.

Anthony Martial was at the top of his game, and scored a brace to put Manchester United in the lead. But the Blues managed to steal a point from the fixture, as Ross Barkley found the back of the net in the last minute of added time.

The Chelsea bench was ecstatic with the late goal, and crazy celebrations ensued. However, one person crossed the line. Sarri’s second assistant, Marco Ianni, rubbed it into Mourinho’s face by celebrating right in front of him.

The Portuguese boss was not ready to take the insult lying down, and ended up chasing Ianni towards the tunnel. Staff members and officials immediately got hold of the United gaffer, and asked him to calm down.

In the post-match interview, Mourinho was asked to comment about the events that took place on the touchline. But Jose refused to comment about it, by stating that ‘it’s in the past’.

When probed further, Jose spoke about the conversation he had with Maurizio Sarri after the incident, and revealed: “I’m not annoyed with anything.

“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.”
