Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho defends Paul Pogba Players make mistakes

As Jose Mourinho prepares to face former club Chelsea on Saturday (Sunday NZT), he is admitting for the first time that the perceived "manhunt" against him is starting to take its toll personally.

However, Barkley slammed in the last meaningful kick of the contest to secure a point, with all eyes then drawn to a spat between Mourinho and Chelsea's second assistant coach Marco Ianni.

It was then, as the clock ticked down, that Mourinho's body language became animated and his emotions bubbled to the surface, concluding in that chaotic confrontation by the tunnel entrance as he felt Chelsea technical staff member Ianni overdid the celebrations of Barkley's late leveller.

Mourinho had to be restrained by stewards before Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri managed to reconcile the Manchester United manager.

So after celebrating, Ianni had to pass Mourinho to get back to the bench. "What I did here today I will do in Madrid, in Milan, in Porto, the reaction from the fans is not up to me", Mourinho told reporters.

"I'm not annoyed with anything".

Sarri said: "Sincerely I have not seen what happened".

"Players make mistakes. I prefer to focus on the [overall] performance", he added.

In May, US President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and a broad alliance of world powers. Iran is a producer of medium and heavy crude that is sour - it contains higher sulfur content than other types.

Paul Pogba was at fault for Chelsea's opener, leaving Antonio Rudiger in acres of space to head home from Willian's first-half corner but Mourinho refused to criticise his midfielder.

As he was leaving the pitch Mourinho also stuck up three fingers to the Chelsea supporters to signal his three Premier League title wins with the Blues - all while he was loudly getting explicitly serenaded by the supporters who used to sign his name.

As the game entered stoppage time, everything had seemed so orderly, with Jose Mourinho keeping to his word to rein in his emotions at the home of some of his greatest triumphs if his team were winning. From one goal down, to scoring two in quick succession, to conceding once more late on, this game had it all.

"I spoke with Jose afterwards and realised we were wrong", Sarri said. They carried more menace in the second half, but their inability to deal with the first ball, second ball or even third ball was grotesque when it mattered most. Mourinho and Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made up with a handshake in the immediate aftermath.

"I think he will be able to win also in the future, because he is really one of the best, maybe the best".

The draw left Manchester United seven points behind leaders Chelsea FC in the Premier League table.

However, Sarri thinks whether United play an attractive brand of football is irrelevant, considering the success he has enjoyed through the years.
