Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was involved in a touchline skirmish after his team conceded a goal in the sixth minute of injury time to draw 2-2 at former club Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday. But as Manchester United manager his record in west London is played three, lost three.
Second-placed Chelsea are unbeaten, level on points with champions Manchester City and challengers Liverpool and with their Belgian forward Eden Hazard in scintillating form they will start as clear favourites.
After United's dramatic 3-2 victory against Newcastle last time out Mourinho and his squad have had to wait for two weeks to get back to Premier League action following the global break.
Sarri also had praise for his counterpart Mourinho, who will make another return to the ground where he won three Premier League titles across two separate spells.
"What happened was with Sarri's assistant and Sarri was the first one to come to me and say that he would resolve the problem internally with him", Mourinho said. However, he remains in the Old Trafford hot-seat and is ready to take on his former club and their new boss Maurizio Sarri.
"He does some of the best things in games, a great pass or dribble, a great touch or dribble", Scholes, who played over 700 games for United, told ESPN.
United will be understandably disappointed to have seen two points slip through their grasp in dramatic fashion during their latest visit to the capital, but they had battled back from a goal down to lead through two Anthony Martial efforts.

"I feel like people at Liverpool and Man City are looking at us and laughing like we did at them many years ago".
"I think I'd try to control myself and respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and what was my stadium for many years". To do that I would have to lose my emotional control, which is not easy.
"I'm very proud and very happy as well". Now I have to study the match.
"I personally think it's only a matter of time until the success is going to be coming back".
Meanwhile, for Chelsea boss Sarri it will be his first meeting against Mourinho.
"'We can be happy with this point because we almost lost and we are still undefeated", he said. "He has won everything everywhere, so probably that means he is right".
"I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don't think Chelsea will sell him to Manchester United. The reason we finished second past year was because of the goalkeeper (David De Gea)". Arch-rivals Manchester United and Chelsea will be locking horns this Sunday.
