Chelsea players humiliated their former Coach Jose Mourinho with a 4-0 victory over Manchester United. It was Jose Mourinho’s first encounter against his former paymasters.
Thirty seconds into Jose Mourinho’s return to Stamford Bridge, his Manchester United team were already 1-0 down thanks to a howler from keeper David de Gea.
Manchester United conceded after just 30 seconds to Pedro Rodríguez and succumbed 4-0 at Stamford Bridge, potentially losing their centre-half Eric Bailly to a serious knee injury en route, with Mourinho berating his team’s “incredible mistakes” at the back.
Goals from Pedro (after 30 seconds), Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante gave The Blues a victory that moves them up to fourth in the Premier League table.
It is Mourinho’s biggest defeat as a Premier League manager and Chelsea’s biggest victory over United since a 5-0 success in October 1999.
Earlier on Sunday, Manchester City saw their winless streak extended to five matches after playing to a disappointing 1-1 draw with a gritty Southampton side at the Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens went into the halftime break trailing, with Nathan Redmond firing the Saint ahead after pouncing on John Stones’ no-look back-pass in the 27th minute.
Half-time substitute Kelechi Iheanacho restored parity ten minutes into the second half, but the hosts were unable to push on grab the winner as the Saints held firm in the closing stages of the contest to claim a share of the spoils.
