Paul Pogba "didn't do his job" to stop Chelsea scoring the opener in their 2-2 draw with Manchester United, said Jamie Redknapp. As a result of the Blues remaining undefeated in league play, assistant Marco Ianni celebrated with a fist pump in Mourinho's face.

After the game, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said he had apologised to his opposite number about the incident, admitted his team "were on the wrong side".

"I have made a lot of mistakes in my career", he told Sky Sports after the game.

"I think in the first half it was just us who played".

"To be honest I am not sure why he [Martial] is not in the France squad, but that is down to the French manager", Young said. "And after that, his assistant comes to me in Sarri's office and apologizes to me".

United recorded a single shot during the first half but Jose Mourinho's men came from behind to lead after the interval thanks to a brace from Anthony Martial.

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.

He had said before the game that he would respect his old club by not over-celebrating, but felt he did not receive the same courtesy in return.

The Red Devils have found themselves under pressure in recent weeks after a stuttering start to the new season for Jose Mourinho's men. We were on the wrong side of the situation. "I spoke immediately with the member of my staff and I told him to speak with Mourinho and say sorry. I will speak to him again tomorrow".

United deserved three points from this match.

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

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

"This is the Premier League against fantastic teams, so we have to keep going and try to work hard".

"We were in the game, we controlled their triggers, Hazard and Jorginho were well controlled".

"'We can be happy with this point because we almost lost and we are still undefeated", he said.
