Jose Mourinho’s return to Chelsea was met with a humiliating defeat when Chelsea thrashed Manchester United 4-0.
This was former Chelsea boss Mourinho’s first return to Stamford Bridge , since he was sacked last year. He was warmly welcomed by Chelsea fans, but was later bombarded with cheeky chants saying “you’re not special anymore”.
While this may be harsh, the statistics of this match are quite startling.
- This is the first time Manchester United lost a Premier League away match by 4 or more goals since 1999, which was also at Chelsea.
- This is Manchester United’s biggest defeat since the 6-1 loss against Manchester City in October 2011.
- It was the heaviest defeat for Jose Mourinho in all competitions since Real Madrid’s 5-0 defeat by Barcelona in November 2010.
