Ross Barkley scored a 96th-minute equaliser to snatch a draw for Chelsea against Manchester United – sparking a touchline melee involving United boss Jose Mourinho.

Barkley stabbed in from close range after David Luiz’s header had hit the post and a follow-up from Antonio Rudiger had been saved, with Mourinho appearing to react to the celebrations of a member of the Blues’ backroom staff.

Defender Rudiger had headed the opener for the hosts after losing his marker Paul Pogba at a corner during a low-key first half.

However, Barkley grabbed a point for the hosts in dramatic fashion to maintain Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season.
