Anthony Martial opens about about his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho vs. Marco Ianni incident: The fallout from the Chelsea-Manchester United touchline scuffle

Jose Mourinho in scuffle on return to Stamford Bridge

Jose Mourinho is a lightning rod, for good or bad.

Marco who? Good question, and one that Mourinho would probably have uttered before this game. Not only did the Chelsea assistant coach run towards Mourinho once, but this ridiculous figure again bounced in front of him just in case he missed him the first time.

The angry scenes at the final whistle will understandably claim much of the attention, with Mourinho reacting to some unnecessary gloating from Ianni. 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.

"At this point of the season one point more or one point less is the same", said the Italian.

As the situation was defused, Mourinho did not hold any grudges against the coach.

"I am not annoyed with anything".

"At this period of the season, one point more or one point less is the same, I want to play every match for three points", Sarri told reporters after the game, via the Express. I have made a lot of mistakes in my career, especially when I was young like him.

Ross Barkley has revealed what Maurizio Sarri said to him before sending him on against Manchester United.

"We showed great attitude at the end. Now everything is finished".

Since then, Pacquiao has defied calls to retire and promised to fight again, prompting unclear reports about a range of possible contenders.

He was clearly enraged and was holding up his three fingers, signifying the number of league championships he won, in the direction of the Chelsea supporters who were baiting him as he made his way off the pitch.

David Luiz says Chelsea were the only team attempting to play during the first half of their Premier League draw with Manchester United. "But that is not up to me".

Two weeks after his United team overturned a 2-0 deficit to beat Newcastle 3-2 at Old Trafford - a result which may have saved his job - his players nearly performed a similar trick at Chelsea and Mourinho was central to that with his tactics and motivation.

He was a constant ball of energy on the touchline, driving his players on. In fact, since Jose Mourinho took over in 2016, no other player has contributed more goals than Martial, who has registered 23 goals and 18 assists in 96 games. I mentioned Paul Pogba before the game and what he has to do, but he doesn't do well here.

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

But once again, when the dust settled, the story was all about Mourinho.

But after scoring twice against Chelsea on Saturday, the Frenchman denied there has ever been a rift between them and insists their relationship is built upon solid foundations.

Rashford is also preventing Martial from getting game time. Chris Smalling has been United's best defender this season, but even he can be unreliable at times, which tells you all you need to know about the club's defensive woes.
