Jose Mourinho vs. Marco Ianni incident: The fallout from the Chelsea-Manchester United touchline scuffle

Anthony Martial has played down talk of a rift with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho after scoring twice against Chelsea.

Marco Ianni had pumped his fists in front of the United bench before there was a confrontation in the tunnel.

The draw left Manchester United seven points behind leaders Chelsea FC in the Premier League table.

"I am not really happy, as I said before, after I have spoken with Jose I understood that we were on the wrong side of the situation". "What happened with Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it".

"For the last minutes United was better than us so I am very disappointed with the last 30 minutes", Sarri, whose side remain unbeaten after Ross Barkley's last-gasp leveller, said.

Chelsea had looked completely in charge after they went ahead in the 20th minute through an Antonio Rüdiger header.

Mourinho reveals that Sarri apologised right after the altercation took place", "It's not my reaction.

"I've seen him marking man-for-man before".

We conceded a goal from a set-piece, but we were in the game so the distance between the first and the second half was not as big as it was against Newcastle.

Khashoggi, a USA resident and leading critic of the Saudi crown prince, vanished after entering the consulate on October 2. Surveillance footage captured him entering through the consulate's main entrance, but he was never seen leaving.

Sarri said: "I spoke with Jose afterwards and realised we were wrong".

It ended with Mourinho involved in scuffles with one of Sarri's staff but both coaches sought to diffuse the row, with Mourinho saying he had accepted an apology and Sarri saying he had also admonished the staff member.

Sarri also said he would speak to Ianni again on Sunday.

When the dust settles, though, there is much United and Mourinho can take from this second half - just not a crucial three points. "We deserved to win but we shipped the goal in the last minute and it cost us".

He had rightly attempted to confront Ianni, and was within his rights to remind the Chelsea fans that he brought them three titles when he was hounded by shouts of "f*** off Mourinho".

United's first-half performance was so poor that they could not have complained had they gone in two or three goals down.

You can even see those behind Mourinho, including Sergio Romero, get up in anticipation of what was to come.

"This is the Premier League against fantastic teams, so we have to keep going and try to work hard".
