Left-back Alonso has been in good form for Maurizio Sarri's side, starting all nine of their games in an unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Both Ianni and Sarri have since apologized to Mourinho, with the United manager saying he now considers the matter closed. Ianni goaded Mourinho twice before the Portuguese got angry and tried to chase the Italian, only to be stopped by the stewards. "We were wrong, we made a mistake". I also think he can improve in the defensive phase.

"Chelsea coach Marco Ianni has been charged following the game against Manchester United on Saturday", said an FA statement.

"[The goals] have done me the world of good".

City's win gives it a two-point cushion over Chelsea and Tottenham - 1-0 victor at West Ham - but Liverpool will join them on 23 points if it beats Huddersfield in the late kickoff. We were more positive and aggressive in the second half but we had little on the bench to change the game.

"I know I am an example, 100 percent, on the pitch and off the pitch", the Juventus star told a news conference ahead of his Champions League return to Manchester United, where he spent six years as a player.

Sarri revealed he had apologised to Mourinho on behalf of Ianni, and his frustration over Chelsea dropping points after a promising start.

"I have spoken to a member of my staff and have dealt with this immediately".

When asked whether Mourinho is getting the respect he claims he deserves, Sarri offered up this response: "I think no at the moment, but I am not really sure because I don't want to read anything. Now the situation is between me and the staff, face to face".

"So I hope everybody does the same as I did, which is not to disturb a career of a young guy which is probably a great guy, is probably a coach of great potential and I'm not happy with it more than that", Mourinho added. Then at 1-1, we haven't.

"We were not organised for the long ball, we usually play with short passes so we were not organised for this in the last half-hour".
