"Maurizio saw and told that he would take care of it internally and to accept his apologies, which I did", said Mourinho.

Earlier, Chelsea - who had been level with City and Liverpool before the weekend - needed a last-gasp equaliser to grab a point against Manchester United. "The referee gave six minutes", he said.

Mourinho stayed in his seat but, after Ianni ran past him, reacted to something the Italian said and had to be restrained.

Chances were proving hard to come by in a tight game, but Bournemouth had and missed the best of them after 64 minutes when Josh King shot wide from close range after Callum Wilson had set him up, and then Hojbjerg drawing another great save from Begovic with a swerving effort.

"I'm not annoyed with anything", said the Portuguese. But I also made mistakes in football matches and I will make more so when after the game he [Ianni] came to me to apologise, I accepted his apologies and nothing more to say.

"I have played good games in the past but at the moment the only difference is I am scoring a lot of goals so that is why I think I am better now".

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.

Following the full-time whistle, "the special one" also pointed three fingers at the Chelsea fans, presumably as a reminder of the three titles he won with the club. What I did here today I will do in Madrid, in Milan, in Porto.


"But the reactions of the fans is up to them".

"After that his assistant came to me in Sarri's office and apologised to me. I have seen the match on the bench, and now want to study the second half of the match". "I understood that we were in the wrong side of the situation", Sarri told BBC sport. But I have that situation immediately. "I think you all have to respect him".

The United manager taking the moral high ground over this episode will, in all likelihood, only add to the irritation felt at Stamford Bridge that this was an avoidable incident.

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.

The respective footage has emerged on the Twitter account Sky Sports Premier League.

The anguish and rage on Mourinho's face, as well as the bitter disappointment of United's players, showed how much the denial of the victory hurt them.

Chelsea had taken a first-half lead thanks to an Antonio Rudiger header, but Manchester United managed to turn it around in the second half thanks to an Anthony Martial brace.

"It is always a good feeling when you win something".
