Chelsea salvage 2-2 draw with Manchester United at home

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was involved in ugly scenes at the end of his return to Stamford Bridge.

After the full-time whistle, Mourinho held up three fingers to the Chelsea fans in reference to the three Premier League titles he delivered for the Blues in two spells in charge.

Manchester United are in eighth place on the Premier League table, and have won only four out of their nine league games so far.

He said: "At this type of football, United is better than us".

Chelsea started the season strong, and are one of only three undefeated teams in the Premier League this season.

"I was very happy with our performance for 60 minutes", Sarri said after the 2-2 draw. In the second half we managed to transform that on occasions in goals, in ambition, in free-flow play with good intensity, good passing, good quality. "Managers come and go but we'll have to wait and see what happens". When one reporter stated that Real Madrid's chief had been quoted as saying that Hazard had been kept "like a slave", Sarri just laughed and responded: "I don't know what to say".

"When the feelings are good you say nice things, when they are not good you don't say so much nice things".

Mourinho believes Hazard is the key for Chelsea's title challenge
For Mourinho , the frustration has been building with the team's poor start to the season, and he also has to react better. First of all, to arrive in Empoli [in 2012], where I had a very young team, but the players were very good.

Rudiger capitalised on slack marking from Paul Pogba to head Sarri's side ahead but their unbeaten start to the season was nearly ended by a man who had guided them to three league titles.

Ross Barkley's 96th-minute strike salvaged a point for Chelsea after two goals from Anthony Martial had cancelled out Antonio Rudiger's first-half opener and put United on the verge of a first win at Stamford Bridge since October 2012.

The Italian coach has quickly made his mark on English football since his arrival from Napoli, with his attacking style of football not only winning over his own club's fans but also many neutrals.

"The position of the manager has been doubted, it's precarious - this idea he's one game away from the sack".

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri confirmed that he and his assistant had apologised to Mourinho straight after the game, with Sarri admitting that his staff were in the wrong.

Luke Shaw earned himself a new contract at Manchester United, prompting Jose Mourinho to praise the defender for his attitude. 'A physical match and United are better than us in a physical match.

"And this season, it is still the beginning of course, but if he is the best player of the Premier League until now, which I think he is until now, Chelsea is top of the league because he is the kind of player who can make a huge difference". "That (style) is what I want".
