The frustration shows for Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United was on the verge of its most impressive win of the season Saturday at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, but it didn't end how the Red Devils wanted and it resulted in some serious tension.

Antonio Rudiger's header gave the hosts the lead in the first half but Anthony Martial got Jose Mourinho's side in the driving seat with a pair of strikes.

But second-half substitute Ross Barkley pounced on a rebound in closing stages of the encounter to salvage a point for the Blues that ensured their unbeaten run in the English top-flight continue.

Manchester United's chief coach Jose Mourinho narrowly avoided a brawl with one of Chelsea's assistants, who was celebrating the Londoners' goal way too enthusiastically during a Premier League match. What happened with [Maurizio] Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it. If I knew I would have been able to immediately change the situation.

In a subsequent news conference, Mourinho was asked what pleased him in United's performance and replied: "Everything".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho speaks about his side's 2-2 draw against Chelsea and the sideline scuffle in stoppage time.

His penalty followed two similar examples. "Lining out 27.7 seconds precisely, as not complying with the rules, I think is wrong". Vettel was subsequently summoned by the stewards who believed the Ferrari driver had not slowed sufficiently.

United had a hard time of it before the global break, enduring a four-match winless run across all competitions before a dramatic 3-2 win over struggling Newcastle United.

"If you say before the match, one point at Stamford Bridge is always a good result because it's so hard for teams to win here". Now I think it's finished. "We were in the wrong on the situation". "I will speak to him again tomorrow". I think we deserve much more than this result but this is what it is. "I have made a lot of mistakes in my career". "But then the young fellow came and he also apologised and I told him "I accept your apology, I also made mistakes especially when I was your age and try to improve".

He said, "You know, it was the third time for me [coming back from two goals down to win a game] at Manchester United, no?"

"The game is going to be very hard, we're playing away".

"After the game, the way the game was, [it] is an very bad result for us, and a phenomenal result for them [Chelsea]".
