Mourinho in furious bust-up with Chelsea staff after late equaliser

Eden Hazard says he could potentially see out his career with Chelsea

Eden Hazard says he could potentially see out his career with Chelsea

The Belgian has once again been Chelsea's star player in the league over the first two months of the season, and United head to Stamford Bridge with their opponents locked together with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table.

Barkley equalized with one of the last kicks of the game, preserving Chelsea's unbeaten start to the season after nine games.

Mourinho was outraged, rose from his seat and tried to confront the assistant, who appeared to disappear down the tunnel, and the United boss had to be restrained by officials.

The Chelsea boss has, however, spoken to the member of his staff who was involved, while Mourinho insisted there was no bad feeling after receiving an apology from both Sarri and Ianni.

Antonio Rudiger had headed the hosts in front, but United turned the game around, Anthony Martial grabbing a brace in an absorbing contest between Mourinho's current club and one of his former employers.

"The late goal denied Mourinho a first win in four attempts as United manager at Chelsea, where he won three league titles across two spells at the London club".

Kepa Arrizabalaga parried Mata's initial effort, but with Alonso down injured in the Chelsea box, Martial had time to control Ashley Young's driven cross back into the area before firing home to equalise.

Higuain: Juve forced me out to make way for Ronaldo
I have nothing negative to say about the Napoli fans, those were three lovely years. "I feel rejuvenated. Higuain, in two seasons with the club, won two Serie A and Coppa Italia doubles.

The goal galvanised the visitors and Martial made it two in the 73rd minute after a fine breakaway move between former Chelsea midfielder Mata and Marcus Rashford. German Rudiger pounced on the knock-down from David Luiz, but was unfortunate to see his stooped header saved excellently by United keeper David de Gea.

"When you are the best team you want to win, you deserve to win".

"The team played very well".

Martial had been largely anonymous before the break, but, in contrast to Morata, took his chances when they came in the second period. The attackers brought the game into a different dimension and the defenders had a solid performance. I am really disappointed in this type of performance.

"I have a certain level of education socially and in sport and what I did today, I would do in Porto, Madrid, Milan".

"But the reaction of the fans is up to them".

Of the incident involving Sarri's assistant, he added: "I'm not annoyed". "And after that, his assistant comes to me in Sarri's office and apologizes to me". Of course I want to speak to him again because I want to make sure he's able to understand it was a big mistake.
