Mourinho praises Manchester United star Anthony Martial after brace against Chelsea

The United manager taking the moral high ground over this episode will, in all likelihood, only add to the irritation felt at Stamford Bridge that this was an avoidable incident.

"At this point of the season one point more or one point less is the same", said the Italian.

Chelsea fell behind thanks to an Anthony Martial brace but Barkley fired home a stoppage time equaliser.

He had rightly attempted to confront Ianni, and was within his rights to remind the Chelsea fans that he brought them three titles when he was hounded by shouts of "f*** off Mourinho". Now I think it's finished. We made a mistake. "We were in the wrong on the situation". "I want to play with the short passes".

"I have spoken to a member of my staff and have dealt with this immediately". "I will speak to him again tomorrow". "I want to be sure he understands it was a big mistake".

Yes, it wasn't his fault that Ianni celebrated so crazily in front of him, but there was little sense of Mourinho biting his tongue and refusing to take the bait.

"Not celebrations, bad education", the Portuguese said. Then the young fellow came and apologised and I told him I accepted.

Chelsea should have won the game, but they squandered chances and the opportunity to really pile the misery on their under-fire former manager Jose Mourinho.

"We controlled that very, very well".

"[It was] different because against Newcastle, in the first half we weren't there".

"It gave them a chance because we had only scored one goal and in the second half they came and scored a lucky goal with the ball touching a player and bouncing about".

Sarri said his side lost out to United in the physical battle as the game wore on.

"We can sit here and say it's ridiculous that these managers react, but what you saw at the end was raw emotion". I don't want the long ball, I don't want the second ball.

"Even though we were 2-1 down, we kept trying to score the equaliser and we did that in the end so I think the spirit was wonderful", he added. "However, we worked hard and this sort of match enabled us to show that we are a good team. Normally, when I'm losing, I never have five, six or seven minutes". The goal in the last minute is OK for the confidence of the players.

"I've seen the match from the bench and now I want to study the second part of the match".
