Jose Mourinho accepts apology from Chelsea coach Marco Ianni for celebration

The United manager was incensed when Marco Ianni, an assistant coach to Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri, celebrated by running on to the pitch and then clenched his fists in celebration close to Mourinho's face, before heading down the tunnel.

Martial was excellent in the second half and Mourinho refused to criticise Paul Pogba for losing Rüdiger when the Chelsea defender headed in the opening goal from a corner.

Mourinho, who won three titles with Chelsea, has been touted as the next Premier League managerial sacking after his side's indifferent start to the season.

Here's how and when to watch Chelsea versus Manchester United online. "We are at the top of the league, we are scoring goals at the moment and we are winning games so now after the global break we want to do the same on Saturday against Man United". What happened with (Maurizio) Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it.

"I did not get respect from the Chelsea fans", he said.

And there was enough in this game to anger and delight him - a awful opening goal, when Pogba lost his man, a stirring fightback, a performance which highlighted Martial's brilliant potential and then the gut-wrenching Barkley equaliser, just as the points seemed to be in the bag.

'I spoke with Jose after and realised we were wrong, ' said Sarri. What I did here today I will do in Madrid, in Milan, in Porto, the reaction from the fans is not up to me. "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".

Defensive calamities at the back cost United the game, which is a shame given their resilience throughout the majority of this match. I think what I call the Chelsea triggers, we controlled them, and the reality is we conceded two goals from set-pieces, not in organised play.

Balotelli scored 30 goals in 80 appearances for City between 2010 and 2013 and memorably unveiled an undershirt reading "Why always me?" after scoring the first goal in City's 6-1 win over United at Old Trafford in October 2011. That will have to wait for now, though.
