A reassuringly familiar 2-0 for the Blues today…
Chelsea strolled to a 2-0 victory against Hull City Tigers today in returning boss Jose Mourinho’s first official game back in charge.
The Portuguese manager won back to back titles between 2004 and 2006, and returns to Stamford Bridge after spells at Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
Goals from Oscar and a Frank Lampard screamer helped Chelsea to an easy win, and Hull can be happy that the scoreline wasn’t more embarrassing. Chelsea virtually declared at 2-0, knocking the ball around with ease instead of putting the newly promoted side to the sword.
Kevin De Bruyne and Marco Van Ginkel made debuts, in what was a thoroughly pleasing first afternoon back in the Premier League for Mourinho.
