Jose Mourinho has declared that he was blameless after a fracas with members of Chelsea’s coaching staff at the end of their 2-2 draw just as he said that “the story is over”.

The Manchester United manager leapt to his feet and was held back by stewards after Chelsea coach Marco Ianni goaded him following Ross Barkley’s late goal.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri also confirmed that he and his assistant had apologised to Mourinho straight after the game, with Sarri admitting that his staff were in the wrong.

United had taken a 2-1 lead thanks to two goals from Anthony Martial after trailing at the break courtsey a David Ruddiger strike.

But, deep into six minutes of added time, David Luiz headed against the post and Barkley was free to bundle in an equaliser for Chelsea.
