Rashford grabs brace as United put four past Lampard's Chelsea

Marcus Rasford Manchester United 2019-20

Frank Lampard bemoaned the "harsh reality" of the Premier League after his Chelsea reign started with a thumping 4-0 defeat at Manchester United on the opening weekend of the season.

United occasionally rode their luck against Frank Lampard's side, but eventually ran out comfortable winners thanks to two goals from Marcus Rashford and one each from Anthony Martial and summer signing Dan James. We have to be self-critical for that.

"For massive parts of the game we didn't allow them to do that".

Yet, Chelsea steadied themselves as the first half wore on and should have at least been level by the break. But there are lessons there.

"When you know you made a mistake.", his tweet reads from 2014.

In the first half Paul Pogba's display summed up the vacuum present in United's midfield.

"In the first half, we were dominated in terms of chances and possession, but we reacted in the second".

"It is the first game at Old Trafford so I think there were nerves". We didn't handle the ball well enough and gave it away in unsafe areas.

"In the second half we were a lot better, were much more like ourselves and controlled the game and we fully deserved the three points".

Pietersen, who is a Chelsea fan, is also an active Twitter user who posts constant updates about his favourite football club whenever they are playing. "[Marcos] Alonso was on the bench, Kante was on the bench, Giroud was on the bench, and to come to Old Trafford, even if this is not the huge Manchester United that used to scare people, it's Manchester United".

Abraham crashed an early drive against the United bar and Mount then tested David De Gea with an effort from distance.

Marcus Rashford fired United in front against Chelsea when converting a penalty that he won following a foul by Kurt Zouma.

"He lost it a couple of times but it doesn't matter - get on the ball and play".

Martial converted from a low cross from Andreas Pereira before Rashford doubled his total 17 seconds after kick-off.

Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were both making their home debuts as Manchester United players and both had their name sung loud and proud by the Stretford End.

Another counter-attack led to United's fourth goal when Pogba fed Welsh winger James who, after initially hesitating, fired into the far bottom corner via a deflection.
