Manchester United have kicked off their season in fine fashion with a 4-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday. Marcus Rashford scored twice while Anthony Martial and debutant, Daniel James scored one each for the Red Devils.
Chelsea dominated the early proceedings in the game but a clumsy tackle attempted by Kurt Zouma gifted the hosts a penalty. Rashford made no mistake from the spot and gave United the lead. The Blues went 1-0 behind at half time and were unlucky as they hit the post twice in the half.
The second half was the exact opposite of the first one as United dominated from the start. Martial scored from a brilliant Andreas Pereira in the 65th minutes to make it 2-0.
Within 90 seconds of the restart, United were 3-0 up after a stunning ball by Paul Pogba put Rashford through on goal and he made no mistake. James came on in the 74th minute and got on the scoresheet thanks to a deflection off Emerson.
