Mourinho’s Manchester United failed to win a brutal battle against Chelsea. This was all down to Barkley, a player that has been key in the Blues’ recent matches. Mourinho, of course, was not impressed.
Rüdiger gave Chelsea the lead against United in the 21st minute, and the Blues carried this lead into second half. With the dominance the home team had shown during the first half, many thought that they would wrap up their victory in the second half.
This was not the case. United actually came from behind to take the lead after Martial scored the equaliser in the 55th minute and followed it up with another goal in the 73rd. Mourinho was overjoyed, but he did not celebrate too much in order to show respect to the fans of his former team, Chelsea.
However, when Barkley scored the equalising goal for the Blues in the final minute of extra time, the fans were over the moon and did not hesitate to show it. In fact, the over exaggerated celebration of one of the Chelsea staff members caused Mourinho to react furiously and engage in a heated confrontation.
It is never easy when top teams face each other. Everyone gets very emotional. Although, all is excused because that is the spirit of football!
