Chelsea 2 Manchester United 2: Barkley strike denies Mourinho

Jose Mourinho insists he will be on his best behaviour on his return to Stamford Bridge, but hopes his Manchester United side inflict Chelsea's first defeat of the season on Saturday.

But chasing the game at 2-1 down, the Chelsea boss was indebted to the quality of his substitutes, Pedro, Olivier Giroud and Ross Barkley, who got the equaliser.

Mourinho conceded that he was upset at the way in which Ianni celebrated in front of him.

"United are better than us at this kind of football, so I'm really disappointed at the last 30 minutes".

"I have a certain level of education, socially and in sport, and what I did here today I would do in Madrid, Porto, Milan, I try to behave always the same way".

"No, I'm not annoyed with anything", he said. "I'm very happy with the results but we need to improve, and we can improve because we have had no time to work [together]", he said.

Afterwards, Mourinho told Sky Sports that Sarri's assistant had apologised to him and he had accepted.

"I have to speak to him again so I can be sure he understands it was a big mistake".

The shortstop later scored the winning run, sliding home to give Los Angeles a 2-1 win that evened the NLCS at two games each. Machado appeared to apologize to Aguilar during the game and explained to reporters what he was trying to do on the play.

Having trailed to Antonio Rudiger's 21st-minute header, when Paul Pogba's slack marking allowed the German defender to score from a set piece, United produced a stirring second-half performance to come within a whisker of winning at Stamford Bridge for the first time since 2012.

Hazard's recent form has helped Chelsea get off to an unbeaten start in the Premier League and Maurizio Sarri's men will be desperately hoping to continue in a similar fashion when United visit. However, in all honesty, getting just one point could be considered punching above their weight given Chelsea's fine display of liquid football.

"They are a strong team, maybe that player by player they are the best in Premier League", Sarri told a media conference.

Marco who? Good question, and one that Mourinho would probably have uttered prior to this game.

"I think he will be able to win also in the future". They face Italian giants Juventus on Tuesday and again on November 7 in the Champions League, after which they visit cross-town rivals and reigning domestic champions Manchester City.

However, there were also positives for Mourinho as the visitors showed plenty of heart and no little skill to fight back from a goal down thanks to Anthony Martial's double.

Mourinho's plan was somewhat illegible in the first half. Already, Mourinho's side has not been convincing this season, and that only increases Chelsea's chances of recording another victory over Manchester United on Saturday.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has resumed his rivalry with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho after the Frenchman said that the Portuguese tactician was the one responsible for Alexis Sanchez' poor form with the Red Devils.
