Jose Mourinho was involved in an unsavoury clash with Chelsea coach Marco Ianni following Ross Barkley's 96th minute equaliser. LONDON -- Jose Mourinho is a lightning rod, for good or bad. Even when it isn't his fault, the story usually ends up with the Manchester United manager being front and centre, and he can thank Marco Ianni for that after Saturday's dramatic and chaotic 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho was involved in an unsavoury clash with Chelsea coach Marco Ianni following Ross Barkley's 96th minute equaliser. ESPN FC's Paul Mariner understands the emotions late on at Stamford Bridge, but feels Man United should've kept their foot on the pedal in the late stages. Manchester United were seconds away from their first win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since 2012 but in the end were forced to settle for a point. Jose Mourinho's team dominated the second half but a lapse in concentration at the end cost two points -- and prompted a melee on the touchline after the United manager took exception to the Chelsea celebrations.
