Manchester United 4-0 Chelsea

Kovacic worked hard in midfield

Chelsea were hit for four without reply against a resurgent Manchester United.

Lampard was fearless in his team selection at Old Trafford after starting with the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Kurt Zouma.

Rashford's early penalty opened the scoring against the run of play, but three goals in 16 second-half minutes from Anthony Martial, Rashford and debutant Daniel James had Old Trafford in raptures.

Chelsea had the lion's share of possession and more shots at goal but were ultimately left reeling from their heaviest loss to United at Old Trafford since 1965.

'All the boys, they train to play for the Chelsea first team since they were young and now we have a massive opportunity to create a fantastic group, to learn from every game.

"If the game had carried on at 1-0, or we were back in the game as we should have been, he would have been a great injection". We have to face it, take the responsibility and move forward.

"So there's the harsh reality for us".

Chelsea's all-time record goal-scorer had been immediately hindered on his appointment last month by the club's transfer ban over the summer - a factor the former England midfielder highlighted.

"We know that playing for Chelsea requires your best effort in every game so we have to learn from the game".

"But we can't. I'm not going to complain too much about that - I want to work".

"I can't drag people out of the medical room, whether they're experienced or not. It's risk and reward and today we were rewarded", Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after the match. "When you don't win, the questions around get more and more but we have to cope with it", he said.
