Ten photos that sum up Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over Man United
Chelsea made it an unhappy return to Stamford Bridge for Jose Mourinho on Sunday as the Blues hammered hapless visitors Manchester United 4-0 in one of the games of the season so far.
It didn’t take long for the rout to get underway, 33 seconds to be precise as Pedro snuck in behind United’s statuesque back four to round David De Gea and give the home side an early advantage.
It was 2-0 before the break when Gary Cahill lashed home from a poorly defended corner.
Two second half goals from Eden Hazard and then N’Golo Kante completed the scoring and sealed what was a miserable afternoon for both United and of course Mourinho, who certainly didn’t get the happy return he would have been so hoping for.
The victory takes Chelsea within one point of leaders Manchester City, yet leaves United struggling down in 7th, five points behind them, and Sunday’s game may just prove to be one of the most vital fixtures of the season for both sides come the end of the campaign.
