WATCH Mourinho Itching to Settle Things With Chelsea Coach 'A-la Khabib'

The celebrations of Barkley's goal led to a tunnel confrontation involving Jose Mourinho, who reacted to Marco Ianni, one of Chelsea's coaching staff, appearing to taunt the United bench by running into the technical area.

Jose Mourinho played down an ugly touchline melee after watching his Manchester United side concede a heartbreaking late equaliser as Chelsea preserved their unbeaten Premier League record on Saturday (Oct 20).

He said: "Oh come on, I can tell you that 97 minutes of the game was so good that you have to focus on that". What happened was with Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it.

Jose Mourinho says he was blameless but "the story is over" after a fracas with members of Chelsea's coaching staff at the end of their 2-2 draw. So of course, I have to speak [to him]. I don't think so.

Chelsea dominated the ball from there, claiming 60 per cent of it in the first half, and could have been two up just after the break had Alvaro Morata made better connection with his low effort from just inside the box.

The Red Devils will return to Champions League action on Tuesday night when they host Juventus at Old Trafford in the group stage.

Asked if he had received the same level of respect he had shown to Chelsea, Mourinho said: "No, I don't think [I did], but that's not my responsibility".

The club is well aware of what Mourinho achieved at Stamford Bridge and those behind the scenes are said to be very embarrassed by the behaviour of Ianni towards the man who delivered Chelsea's first domestic title in 50 years.

Liverpool ground out a 1-0 win at Huddersfield as Mohamed Salah's goal took them back up to second place in the Premier League table. "We were in the wrong on the situation".

Maurizio Sarri's side went in to the global break in fine form having thrashed Southampton 3-0 at St Mary's Stadium but they'll be expecting a much stiffer test against Manchester United this weekend. However, in all honesty, getting just one point could be considered punching above their weight given Chelsea's fine display of liquid football.

"He is a great manager, we have that freedom on the pitch, and when we don't have the ball, we know what to do so it is quite simple".
