Chelsea and Manchester United are expected to be let off with a warning and reminded of their future conduct by the Football Association following the chaotic scenes that marked the closing stages of their 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

To his credit, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri did not attempt to distance himself from the impoverished nature of the chaotic happenings.

The centre-back, who has started all nine Premier League games this season after falling out of favour under Antonio Conte, hailed Chelsea's character in claiming a draw.

I spoke with my staff, and then [Ianni] agreed to speak to Mourinho and say sorry.

"We made a mistake, we were in the wrong in the situation".

Martial volleyed home to cancel out Antonio Rudiger's 21st-minute header before curling in what looked like being the victor from the edge of the penalty area.

With the Chelsea fans taunting their former manager - 'F-- off Mourinho!' was the chant from the main stand - he responded by displaying three fingers to his tormentors, referencing the three Premier League titles he won as the club's manager.

Speculation grew that Meghan was expecting when she wore a loose fitting Givenchy coat to Princess Eugenie's wedding on Friday. The topic cropped up in their engagement interview, with Harry, saying: "Hopefully we'll start a family in the near future".

"If I speak to a member of staff and am very hard (with Ianni) I can not come here and tell everything because then I am not credible with the staff".

Consistency has been Lukaku's big problem for United this season, and he showed just why he can be so frustrating during this game.

The Chelsea boss has, however, spoken to the member of his staff who was involved, while Mourinho insisted there was no bad feeling after receiving an apology from both Sarri and Ianni. So of course, I have to speak [to him].

United face Italian champions Juventus at Old Trafford on Tuesday looking to build on positive second half performances against Newcastle and Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho wanted to bring in defensive reinforcements in the summer, but the United hierarchy failed to back him in the market. I don't want the long ball, I don't want the second ball. [We were] the best team on the pitch. "We deserved to win but we shipped the goal in the last minute and it cost us".

The midfielder, 24, may be handed more game time by Sarri on Thursday when Chelsea take on BATE Borisov in the Europa League, offering him another chance to impress. They didn't see it coming.
