Jose Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time since getting sacked as Chelsea boss, but the result his side managed to secure was farthest from what the Special One would have hoped for.
The Blues beat Manchester United 4-0, earning 3 valuable points and tremendous amounts of confidence in the process.
Here’s how Jose Mourinho’s players performed on the night:
DAVID DE GEA: 4
Was partly at fault while conceding the first goal, but was otherwise helpless for the rest of the match.
ANTONIO VALENCIA: 6
Created numerous chances from the right wing, and was United’s best outlet throughout the match.
ERIC BAILLY: 5
Bad day at the office for Bailly, who still managed to make some noteable defensive contributions.
CHRIS SMALLING: 2
Played a part in conceding all the goals on the night. One of his worst performances since joining the club, if not the worst.
DALEY BLIND: 3
Helped Chelsea score the opener, and was mediocre throughout the game. Did manage to whip in a good cross of two from the left.
ANDER HERRERA: 4
Failed to shield the back four, and simply wasn’t as good as he was against Liverpool.
MAROUANE FELLAINI: 3
Was subbed off at half-time, and he wasn’t missed one bit.
PAUL POGBA: 4
Won more tackles than any of his teammates. Performed an impressive dribble or two, but that was all.
JESSE LINGARD: 3.5
Made lesser offensive impact on the right than Antonio Valencia – the right back. Did manage to hit a good shot on target.
MARCUS RASHFORD: 4.5
Worked hard on the pitch, but was nowhere near as good as he usually is.
ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC: 3
Had a good chance to score and put an end to Chelsea’s early momentum, but headed the ball above the crossbar. Simply not clinical enough.
JUAN MATA: 4.5
Managed to make an impact from the bench, but not enough to help his team initiate a comeback.
MARCOS ROJO: 3
Just as good (or bad) as Daley Blind at the left-back.
ANTHONY MARTIAL: 3
Couldn’t make an impact whatsoever.
