Manchester United may not have been completely fluent against Chelsea, but they still managed to thrash the Blues 4-0.
Two-goal Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial starred as Manchester United crushed Chelsea 4-0 in Frank Lampard’s first Premier League match as the Blues’ head coach.
Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had suggested in pre-season Rashford and Martial were set to share striker responsibilities this term and they were the inspiration as United clinched an emphatic opening-day win, albeit one that somewhat flattered them.
Chelsea certainly edged a first half that was arguably more entertaining for its seemingly constant stream of errors than anything else, but United led 1-0 at the break thanks to Rashford’s penalty, despite Tammy Abraham and Emerson Palmieri hitting the post for the visitors.
