Mourinho marks return with victory

Jose Mourinho enjoyed a winning return to Stamford Bridge as his Chelsea side beat newly-promoted Hull City 2-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Goals from Oscar and Frank Lampard wrapped up the victory for the Blues, who extend their unbeaten home league run under Mourinho to sixty-one games.

The hosts were awarded a penalty after just six minutes, though Hull keeper Allan McGregor saved Lampard’s effort.

They eventually took the lead seven minutes later through Oscar before Lampard fired in a long range free kick half way through the first half.

New signings Marco van Ginkel and Andre Schurrle both made their bows as second half substitutes, with the latter replacing fellow debutant Kevin De Bruyne.

The club will now turn their attention to Wednesday’s match against Aston Villa, who currently sit a place above the Blues by virtue of goals scored following their 3-1 win at Arsenal.

Meanwhile, ESPN understand that Chelsea are lining up a third and final bid of around £40m for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

The England international made two assists after coming on as a second half substitute against Swansea City on Saturday, and cut a lonely figure as the rest of his teammates celebrated.
