Chelsea v Man United: 3 things we learned

Sky Sports pundit reveals surprising insider information on £50m Liverpool transfer

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri reckons the players at Jose Mourinho's disposal at Manchester United are the best in the Premier League. That caught the attention of the United bench but there was no response until seconds later when Ianni trotted in front of Mourinho again and celebrated with both fists clenched, prompting the latter to try to pursue him down the tunnel.

Sarri, who is yet to win a trophy in his management career, said: "You are talking about one of the best coaches in the world - and I'm not at the moment one of the best".

Reflecting on his team's performance, Sarri added: "I am very happy for 60 minutes, because we played our football". The assistant has already come to me and apologised. "But I also made mistakes in football matches and I will make more".

United were on the verge of securing their first win at Stamford Bridge since 2012 after mounting an impressive comeback in the second half, with Anthony Martial scoring twice after Antonio Rüdiger had given Chelsea an early lead.

After the full-time whistle, Mourinho held up three fingers to the Chelsea fans in reference to the three Premier League titles he delivered for the Blues in two spells in charge. The less he had of the ball, the more chance we had, because he's one of the best footballers ever to be.

Sarri, who took over at Chelsea this season, has been praised for promoting an entertaining, swift-passing style that particularly suits top scorer Eden Hazard and his technically gifted team mates. "The Ander Herrera situation, I saw (he should have put) the ball in the net for 3-1, but that's football, and that's a bad result".

It was a bitter blow for the under-pressure Mourinho, returning to his former club after a poor start to the season and he lost his cool in emotional scenes in the final seconds.

Of the Hammers seven Premier League points from eight games, four came from home games against Chelsea and United.

Mourinho's plan was somewhat illegible in the first half. Who can forget Mourinho poking Tito Vilanova in the eye, sliding on his knees in celebration at the Nou Camp or even the time he sprinted down the Old Trafford touchline to celebrate Porto's last-minute equaliser at Manchester United?

"My feeling is that we work on the pitch", Mourinho said. "Of course I want to speak to him again because I want to make sure he's able to understand it was a big mistake", he said. Jose Mourinho likes to set up his teams in a certain way and psychologically the players can become frightened of losing the game or of losing their place.

"I hope to improve myself in the future, but I need to win [trophies] if I want to compare myself to him".
