Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had to be physically restrained by stewards following Chelsea's late equaliser against his side in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off.

However, Chelsea substitute Barkley had the final say deep into stoppage time, the England midfielder's goal prompting wild celebrations on the touchline and a furious row as Mourinho was left incensed by provocation from Marco Ianni, a member of Chelsea's coaching staff.

In a subsequent news conference, Mourinho was asked what pleased him in United's performance and replied: "Everything". Because of his own track record and history of antagonising opponents, he now finds himself facing the kind of behaviour that he and his own assistants have been guilty of in the past.

"I am not annoyed with anything". The assistant has already come to me and apologised.

"Maurizio saw and Maurizio said he would take care of it internally and [for Mourinho] to accept his apologies which I did. So when he came after the game to make his apologies I accepted his apologies".

Dozens Of Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) Employees Combat Misinformation In 'War Room'
The War Room , set up a month ago, contains representatives from various teams across Facebook - 24 teams, to be exact. With the new ad architecture in place, people would be able to see who paid for a particular political ad.

"We were the best team on the pitch". I told him to forget it. "Now everything is finished". "What I call the Chelsea "triggers", we controlled them and the reality is we conceded two goals in set pieces not organised play", he said. "But that is not up to me". What I did here today I will do in Madrid, in Milan, in Porto, the reaction from the fans is not up to me.

Martial was excellent in the second half and Mourinho refused to criticise Paul Pogba for losing Rüdiger when the Chelsea defender headed in the opening goal from a corner.

Chelsea had most of the possession and looked in control until Martial thumped in the equaliser in the 55th minute against the run of play after Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga had kept out a close-range Juan Mata shot.

Romelu Lukaku performed like a world-class centre-forward in the second half, too.

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.
