An injury time goal from substitute Ross Barkley earned Chelsea a last-gasp 2-2 draw at home to Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday in a match that ended with United boss Jose Mourinho involved in scuffles.

Two goals from Anthony Martial had appeared to have earned Mourinho`s Manchester United a comeback win after they went 1-0 down in the first half.

Yet Barkley`s 96th minute equaliser, which preserved Chelsea`s unbeaten record, also prompted drama at pitchside as one of the assistants of Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri seemingly provoked Mourinho.

Mourinho was outraged, rose from his seat and tried to confront the assistant, who appeared to disappear down the tunnel, and the United boss had to be restrained by officials.Afterwards, Mourinho told Sky Sports that Sarri`s assistant had apologised to him and he had accepted.

But the under-pressure United boss, who had looked set to earn a major win on the road until Barkley`s late intervention robbed United of victory, described the late setback as an "awful" result for his side.

United, who had never won nor even scored a goal under Mourinho at his former club, went behind in the 20th minute when Germany defender Toni Rudiger strode away from marker Paul Pogba and rose to head home a Willian corner.

Chelsea had most possession and looked in control until Martial thumped in the equaliser in the 55th minute again...
