Jose Mourinho reacted angrily after a member of the Chelsea staff appeared to celebrate provocatively in front of him following their equaliser.

The angry scenes at the final whistle will understandably claim much of the attention, with Mourinho reacting to some unnecessary gloating from Ianni. "What happened was with Sarri's assistant".

"The assistant has already come to me and apologized, I told him to forget it".

In Italy he was known as one of the four "wizards" credited with being the brains behind Sarri's Napoli, with a focus on tactics.

"After that his assistant came to me in Sarri's office and apologised to me".

Jose Mourinho says he was blameless but "the story is over" after a fracas with members of Chelsea's coaching staff at the end of their 2-2 draw.

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

Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival forced my exit from Juventus: Gonzalo Higuain
Cristiano Ronaldo has set a new record after becoming the first player to reach 400 career goals in Europe's top five leagues. But Juve were made to pay for failing to convert a hatful of chances when Daniel Bessa headed in a second-half equaliser.

"To do that should be something [where] I completely lost my emotional control, which is not easy, so I would think which stadium I am in, which public is in the stands?" "But I also made mistakes in football matches and will make more".

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard says manager Maurizio Sarri's organising has been key to their success. But then the young fellow came and he also apologised and I told him: "I accept your apology".

"At the moment City is more of a team, but player-by-player they are very, very strong".

Sarri was furious at dropping two points, accusing his players of trying to match United at their own game.

But Cardiff responded with two in five minutes, in-form Josh Murphy curling past Marcus Bettinelli and Bobby Reid slotting home his first goal for Cardiff, but Fulham were level just after the half-hour when Ryan Sessegnon struck. I don't think so. The 2-2 [equaliser] in last minutes is okay for confidence of my players, but I have to look at something else.

They are now sitting at the top of the Premier League table with 21 points, just one point more than Manchester City and Liverpool who are second and third on the PL table respectively. We are not organised like this to play the long ball.

"We are not organised for that because I do not want us playing for second balls".
