WITH two frosty handshakes, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte seemingly drew a line under a feud that had become one of the most entertaining subplots of the Premier League season.

“I think that is what me and Antonio want to show to everyone,” Mourinho, the Manchester United manager, said after his team’s 2-1 win over Conte’s Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
