Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge to face off against his old team, Chelsea. Although at the start of the match he received a warm welcome from his old fans, Mourinho was too humiliated by the final match result to be comfortable.
Within 30 seconds of gameplay, Pedro gave Chelsea the lead! This early blow tore Man United’s match tactics to shreds. Where were they to go next?
Apparently, not very far. Cahill doubled Chelsea’s lead with a goal in the 21st minute! The Blues were proving to be the better team in every way possible.
In the second half, Manchester United began to press Chelsea. They wanted to equalise. However, for one reason or another, they weren’t successful.
Hazard netted the third goal for the Blues in the 62nd minute and, in the 70th, Kante netted the fourth. The Blues showed Mourinho that they were a better, stronger and bolder team without him!
The Special One has now become The Broken One. Mourinho’s United has proved to be weaker than Conte’s Chelsea, who denied United a single goal.
Chelsea are 4th on the PL table, only one point away from top spot. Whereas, Manchester United are 7th. There is a growing concern that United might not be among the top four this season.
