Jose Mourinho accepts apology over touchline row - Forget it, it's over

In celebrating Barkley's leveller Chelsea assistant Marco Ianni appeared to goad the United bench causing manager Jose Mourinho to chase after Ianni, causing a scene that was only a few dirty slaps shy of a schemozzle.

Sarri revealed he had apologised to Mourinho on behalf of Ianni, and his frustration over Chelsea dropping points after a promising start.

Mourinho's United contract ends in 2020 and the club has the option to extend it for another year, but the Portuguese is under pressure himself with United 10th in the Premier League table after nine games. I think United are better than us in this kind of football.

"The way we want to play and the way we can play was shown in the past two matches".

The England Women manager said on NBC Sports: "Whoever that staff member is of Chelsea has just been an absolute disgrace". I think it is finished. It promoted Mourinho to attempt to confront Ianni before being held back by members of his coaching staff. I said 'if you really feel it that way, and you want to apologise, of course I accept your apology.

He called it an "awful" result after one of United's better performances of a chequered season and when Manchester City later destroyed Burnley with four second-half goals, it meant Mourinho's troops, now ninth, are nine points behind their neighbours. The assistant has already come to me and apologised.

On the touchline incident with Mourinho and Ianni, Sarri added: "I didn't see anything on the pitch. Everybody makes mistakes, I made a lot of mistakes, so I hope they let the kid go on".

The game at Old Trafford is a huge one for both teams as the group stages gets down to the nitty gritty but for the second game on the bounce, Manchester United arrived less than an hour before kick off.

"I will speak to him again (on Sunday)".

"We were not organised for the long ball, we usually play with short passes so we were not organised for this in the last half-hour".
