Chelsea’s post-Mourinho era began with a bang as Chelsea scored 3 Premier League goals in a match for the first time in nearly 4 months to edge out Sunderland. It was a superb performance for Chelsea team, who got off to hot start to the game and ended the game with a well-deserved two goal margin.
Sunderland were poor at the back and found it difficult to contain the determined Chelsea’s front line, who were enjoying free ride in the game. The most outstanding performers are Oscar and Willian while Costa also performed well as he forced O’Shea into making many mistakes during the game.
Chelsea had a great performance today compared to their previous matches. It May be too soon to sing praises but has the Performance justified Mourinho’s sack? Time will tel.

This happens to be United’s third successive league defeat, limiting Van Gaal’s chance of survival and his days numbered as ex-Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is available and looking to continue his career in England.
