FA waiting on report of melee at Stamford Bridge


  • Referee’s report to determine the FA penalty regarding an altercation by Marco Ianni.
  •  Maurizio Sarri would discuss further with Ianni regarding the melee at the Bridge.
  • Rudiger glad that Chelsea still remains unbeaten.

The English FA is waiting for the referee’s report to decide whether to take further action over the bust-up at Stamford Bridge after Chelsea grabbed a last-gasp equalizer against Man United.

It can be recalled that Jose Mourinho reacted when Chelsea coach Marco Ianni engaged in supposedly provocative celebrations after Barkley’s late goal.

This resulted in a scuffle and melee near the tunnel with Mourinho being restrained by touchline officials.

Ianni later apologized to the Man United boss and Maurizio Sarri later insisted that the matter is closed. However, it remains to be seen if the FA will take any further action over the incident.

Sarri also added that he would engage in a discussion with Ianni again on Sunday over the incident.

Chelsea continued their unbeaten run, all thanks to Ross Barkley’s equalizer. Rudiger who opened the scoring for Chelsea spoke after the game:

‘We can be happy with this point because we nearly lost and we are still undefeated,”

he said

“In the second half we dropped more, we let them have more possession and we made some silly mistakes so they got some counter-attacks.”

“They are a strong team, physically very strong. We need to learn to kill matches, but scoring late so often shows our resilience.”
