Barkley's late equaliser sparks Mourinho melee

Mourinho refrained from further comment when he said he had accepted the apology of Ianni, and that it was time to move on.

Barkley was named on the bench for Manchester United's visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, with Kovacic getting the nod to start alongside N'Golo Kante and Jorginho in the middle of the park.

Ianni, who came to Chelsea from Napoli with Sarri, twice celebrated in close proximity to Mourinho in the aftermath of substitute Barkley's goal.

"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 awesome", he added.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho has also made two changes to the team which completed a stunning second-half comeback to beat Newcastle United 3-2 in their last match.

Antonio Rudiger's first-half header had given Chelsea the lead before Anthony Martial's two goals put United in front. But the Chelsea manager did not know the precise nature of Ianni's actions until he spoke to Mourinho after the game. We were on the wrong side of the situation.

"To be honest I am not sure why he [Martial] is not in the France squad, but that is down to the French manager", Young said. I don't think he's disciplined enough for it. "I think we deserve much more than this result but this is what it is". "We were in the wrong on the situation".




"I have spoken to a member of my staff and have dealt with this immediately. I will speak to him again tomorrow".

"The three attacking players work a lot - Mata, [Anthony] Martial, [Marcus] Rashford".

Jose Mourinho wanted to bring in defensive reinforcements in the summer, but the United hierarchy failed to back him in the market. They have both apologised to me, I accept. I am pleased with everything apart from the result which is bad for us.

"We controlled that very, very well".

"We were the best team on the pitch", Mourinho said. But we were there, we were in the game. Then after it was 1-1 we didn't play our football, only long balls and we didn't win the second balls. "I want to play with the short passes".

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

"I am really disappointed in this type of performance. Normally, when I'm losing, I never have five, six or seven minutes".
