Mourinho infuriated as Chelsea salvage unbeaten record

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was angered by Chelsea’s celebrations of a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 20 – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had to be restrained by stewards in the aftermath of Ross Barkley’s 96th minute equaliser to salvage Chelsea’s unbeaten record under Maurizio Sarri in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.Mourinho took exception to the celebrations of one of Sarri’s backroom staff, Marco Ianni, who ran in front of the Portuguese on the touchline, as he seemed set for a sweet victory over his old club after Anthony Martial scored twice to cancel out Antonio Rudiger’s opener. Players and coaches from both benches had to separated in a melee after Barkley’s late strike.Mourinho also then gestured with three fingers towards the Chelsea fans in reference to the three Premier League titles he won for the club in two spells in charge.A draw is more than Mourinho got on his three previous returns to Stamford Bridge as United boss. But his frustration at blowing what could have been a huge win was obvious as the visitors remain seven points adrift of Chelsea, and could fall nine points behind Manchester City and Liverpool should they win their respective fixtures later Saturday.Amid reports he was set to face the axe, Mourinho had been handed a lifeline by a stirring fightback from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle 3-2 before the international break a fortnight ago.Martial was rewarded for coming off the bench to score in that game as rather than opt for his cautious nature, Mourinho named an adventurous line-up also featuring Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku.And his gamble looked set to pay off despite falling behind to a Chelsea side now unbeaten in their first 12 games under Sarri.Lukaku had the first significant chance of the game when he headed Luke Shaw’s fine cross high and wide.At the other end, United attempted to stop the outstanding player of the Premier League season so far with some rough treatment as Nemanja Matic and Ashley Young were shown early yellow cards for chopping down Eden Hazard.However, when Shaw cut out a dangerous low cross from the Belgian on 21 minutes, the visitors were undone by a lack of concentration from Paul Pogba.Rudiger easily peeled away from the Frenchman to plant a powerful header past the helpless David de Gea.That was the fourth time United have conceded from a corner in the league this season, having also done so in defeats to Brighton, Tottenham and West Ham.It wasn’t so costly this time as Chelsea paid for a lack of killer instinct despite dominating possession for the rest of the first-half.Marcos Alonso miscontrolled when Rudiger’s through ball put him clean through on De Gea before Alvaro Morata wasted his only big chance of another disappointing afternoon when his shot on the turn was too weak to beat his Spanish international team-mate in the United goal.Martial had been largely anonymous before the break, but, in contrast to Morata, took his chances when they came in the second period.Kepa Arrizabalaga parried Mata’s initial effort, but with Alonso down injured in the Chelsea box, Martial had time to control Ashley Young’s driven cross back into the area before firing home to equalise.Martial again provided the final flourish with a brilliant curled effort into the far corner 17 minutes from time after fine work in the build-up by Mata and Rashford.The Frenchman was greeted with a bear hug from Mourinho when he was replaced six minutes from time.But United couldn’t hold out for an extra six minutes stoppage time as Barkley pounced after De Gea had produced another miraculous save from Rudiger before carnage broke loose on the touchline.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

KMC holds workshop on prevention control of vectorborne diseases

first_imgKolkata: Aedes Aegypti mosquito which is responsible for transmitting dengue virus into your body is lured by deep colour of clothes. Deep red, deep black and deep blue are the three colours that attract dengue mosquitoes towards a person, said Vector Control Officer of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation Debasish Biswas. Speaking at an interactive session on dengue, Biswas said: “These three colours are spotted by an Aedes Aegypti, female mosquito, from a distance of 10 metres. The shadow of these colours help the insect in the sighting and it is attracted towards these colours. So it is better to avoid these colours at least from June to October which are the months in which dengue cases are the maximum.” Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe event was held at Rabindra Sadan organised by the KMC’s Health department on Saturday. Fashion designer Agnimitra Paul suggested roping in cricketers and film stars for the campaign. “I have seen that when some brand is endorsed by a cricketer or a film star, it has more appeal. The same process may also be followed in the KMC’s awareness programmes about dengue,” Paul added. Member Mayor-in-Council (Health) Atin Ghosh welcomed the proposal and said the civic body will give it a serious thought.

We have invited all hospitals, both government and private, in the programme to hand over the treatment protocol. We will also be sending it to other stakeholders who failed to attend the programme,” Ghosh said.He urged the doctors dealing with dengue to consider the treatment to be a part of social cause. Mayor Sovan Chatterjee, in a word of advice to the councillors and borough chairmans who attended the programme, said not to create unnecessary panic over dengue.”The civic body is fully geared up to fight dengue and we will strive in ensuring that there is not a single death due to this disease,” Chatterjee said.He reiterated that deaths due to dengue in the state are much less than most other states in the country.last_img read more
