Chelsea 4-0 Manchester United as Pedro, Cahill, Hazard and Kante on target as Chelsea run riot with four good goals, Jose Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge did not go as planned as his team Manchester United found themselves trailing inside first minute of the kickoff when Pedro out foxed United back four to poke home the opener. If the start was bad, things got even worse 20 minutes later when Gary Cahill scored second for Chelsea and homeside in commanding position. From than on it was only one outcome as Chelsea pretty much cruised through the first half without conceding.
Pedro scored Chelsea’s opener with his first shot on target this season, Jose Mourinho was humiliated on his return to Chelsea as his former club blew away his Manchester United side at Stamford Bridge. The Blues, who sacked Mourinho for a second time last year, led after just 30 seconds when Pedro capitalised on slack defending to roll in. Gary Cahill smashed in the second after United allowed Eden Hazard’s corner to bounce in their box. United offered little sign of making a comeback, falling further behind when Hazard drilled in a precise 15-yard strike. N’Golo Kante skipped around a static defence to slot in and seal victory as Chelsea moved within a point of Premier League leaders Manchester City.
The comprehensive win lifted the Blues above Tottenham into fourth, with just one point separating the top five. United stay seventh as the gap between them and the early pacesetters widens to five points, with almost a quarter of the season gone.
