Maurizio Sarri accuses Chelsea squad of disobeying his tactics against Man Utd

Jose Mourinho would probably be the first to argue that United's defensive woes were inevitable the moment some of his centre-half targets were vetoed in the summer and plenty would support the view that reinforcements are required, with the dependence on goalkeeper David de Gea becoming unhealthy. Yes, it bothers me.

In an interview last weekend with a Belgian newspaper, Hazard named Mourinho as the one manager he would like to work with again. Sarri came to me, and said he would resolve it internally.

"Don't do what everyone does and say 'it's Mourinho who does things.' I don't know his name, I don't need to know".

Chelsea took the lead through an Antonio Rudiger header from a corner.

Barkley's equaliser marked a second goal in as many club games for the midfielder, who is in form after a hard start to life at Stamford Bridge last season.

There was bad blood among several players deep into injury time while Mourinho was mocked by the home fans as he raised three fingers to the sky, reminding them of the three Premier League crowns he brought to the club during two spells between 2004 to 2015.

"Some of the players looked depressed in the first half with the result, and with the pre-match, because the pre-match was hard for them", Mourinho said. The result is really unfair for us.

"We were in the game, we controlled their triggers, Hazard and Jorginho were well controlled".

"Anthony Martial is improving, he is doing different things than before".

"Very good results, top of the league and of course lots of good players but history says that when Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League, Chelsea is the champion".

Martial put United in front for the fist time with a 15-yard strike midway through the first half.
