Chelsea's Sarri slams players for ditching game plan in United draw

Chelsea's Sarri slams players for ditching game plan in United draw

The Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho does have a tendency of finding himself in the bad books of quite a few players and at Manchester United, there are plenty of reports that are stating that he has lost more than half of his players in the dressing room.

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.

David Luiz says Chelsea were the only team attempting to play during the first half of their Premier League draw with Manchester United.

"I've seen him [Pogba] marked man for man before", Redknapp told Sky Sports.

"I did not get respect back from Chelsea [fans] but that is not my responsibility", he said.

"What happened was with Sarri's assistant and Sarri was the first one to come to me and say that he would resolve the problem internally with him", Mourinho said. We were wrong, we made a mistake'.

United were seconds away from securing a vital victory over the Blues, before Ross Barkley snatched a point for Chelsea with goal in second-half stoppage time.

Hazard and Mourinho spent two years together at Stamford Bridge winning both the Premier League and League Cup.

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

"For me, I see him day in, day out and he is some talent". "After the match I spoke with Jose and immediately I understood we were wrong".

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

He also didn't need to hit back at the Chelsea fans, but when you throw away three points you so desperately want with nearly the last kick of the game, it would be testing the resolve of anyone, never mind someone as emotional as Mourinho. If you say before the match one point at Stamford Bridge, it's always a good result because it's so hard for teams to win here.

United's fans, however, will appreciate the efforts and intensity of their players, showing loud support for their manager as they witnessed his team finally show signs of life to build on the momentum of their comeback win against Newcastle United. But we were there, we were in the game.
