An injury time goal from substitute Ross Barkley earned Chelsea a last-gasp 2-2 draw at home to Manchester United on Saturday in a match that ended with United boss Jose Mourinho involved in scuffles.
The nature of their 3-2 victory over Newcastle had already given United something to build on, so to then come from behind at Stamford Bridge should further ease the significant pressure that had built on the manager.
Since 1992, United has managed to record an appalling five wins at the Stamford Bridge when it comes to league games.
In a tempestuous ending to United's 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Saturday, Mourinho leapt up and attempted to confront Chelsea technical assistant Marco Ianni.
This is the reality that Mourinho must accept.
The United manager's relationship with Chelsea supporters has strained since taking over at Old Trafford.
Hazard admitted that things didn't go well in Mourinho's a year ago at the club, but blames that on himself.
"I am not annoyed with anything", Mourinho said. What happened with Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it. "'Forget it, because I've also made lots of mistakes in my career".
"Don't do what everyone does and say, 'It's Mourinho who does things.' I don't know his name".
The Belgian has once again been Chelsea's star player in the league over the first two months of the season, and United head to Stamford Bridge with their opponents locked together with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table.
"I don't want the long ball and to go to the second ball. Now everything is finished". "I did not get respect back from Chelsea fans but that is not my responsibility", Mourinho said. "But that is not up to me".
That may be interpreted as implied criticism of Mourinho, but Sarri was not about to emulate his predecessor, Antonio Conte, in igniting a public feud with the former Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss. They looked like they would snatch an undeserved win, but those of us who believed that must have forgotten that Chelsea have Maurizio Sarri now, and they are to be taken seriously at all times.
"After we scored the second goal and third it was much easier", said Guardiola.
"Then after the goal of 1-1 we haven't played our football".
Recent history tells you that Premier League champions normally have a 20-goal-a-season striker.
Lukaku had the first significant chance of the game when he headed Luke Shaw's fine cross high and wide. And individually in the second half, they raised the bar.
The respective footage has emerged on the Twitter account Sky Sports Premier League.
But once again, when the dust settled, the story was all about Mourinho.
The dramatic finish sparked wild scenes of celebration on and off the field, with Mourinho taking exception to one member of Sarri's staff celebrating right in front of him.
However, when Shaw cut out a unsafe low cross from the Belgian on 21 minutes, the visitors were undone by a lack of concentration from Paul Pogba.
The Italian coach has quickly made his mark on English football since his arrival from Napoli, with his attacking style of football not only winning over his own club's fans but also many neutrals.
