The assistant has already come to me and apologised. So I have dealt with this immediately.

Manchester City displayed champions' swagger as they roared clear at the top with a 5-0 trouncing of Burnley but it was drama which engulfed their neighbours Manchester United and Jose Mourinho that dominated the Premier League agenda on Saturday. Will Mourinho, a two-time former Chelsea manager, engineer another Stamford Bridge tactical masterpiece or will the intense criticism over his performance return after the two-week absence that was the worldwide break.

'I spoke with Jose after and realised we were wrong, ' said Sarri.

Ross Barkley scored in the sixth minute of injury time to level the match at 2-2 after Anthony Martial had scored twice in the second half to cancel out Antonio Rudiger's opener.

Maurizio Sarri apologised to Manchester United and admitted Chelsea were in the wrong after one of his coaches sparked a furious touchline row with José Mourinho.

When asked if he was glad of a build-up without speculation about his own future, Mourinho said: "I hope so". We are not organised like this to play the long ball.

Corbin Burnes pitched on consecutive days for just the fifth time in his pro career and gave up an RBI single to Yasiel Puig . Also worth mentioning is that Clayton Kershaw will be coming off two days of rest since his Game 5 start.

But just as it seemed United had claimed a huge three points, Chelsea hung up a high ball in the box, which Alonso headed against the post.

Two weeks after his United team overturned a 2-0 deficit to beat Newcastle 3-2 at Old Trafford - a result which may have saved his job - his players nearly performed a similar trick at Chelsea and Mourinho was central to that with his tactics and motivation.

I think it's fair to say that the football world had quite the mixed reaction to the game...

Mourinho conceded that he was upset at the way in which Ianni celebrated in front of him.

Sarri said his side lost out to United in the physical battle as the game wore on. "I have seen the match on the bench, and now want to study the second half of the match".

Defensive calamities at the back cost United the game, which is a shame given their resilience throughout the majority of this match. "Normally when I am losing I never get six minutes". Players make mistakes. I prefer to focus on the global performance.
