Gary Cahill with Thierry Henry

SkySport pundit Thierry Henry revealed that Gary Cahill‘s goal remindeded him of former Chelsea star William Gallas.

“That’s a William Gallas goal, – the Frenchman claimed – William Gallas used to get six goals a season just standing there like that standing in the centre. Yes, he got lucky but if he wasn’t there, he doesn’t score.”

A disappointed Juan Mata commented the 4-0 defeat Manchester United suffered at Stamford Bridge today:

“This is a painful result. From the first minute it started very badly.

“I felt that when we were close to their goal they scored, every time, and that was the key to the game.

“It is just three points, we have another important game in a few days so we need to learn from our mistakes.”

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is confident that his side can bounce back from the humiliating defeat against Chelsea today.

He told BBC Sport: “The team played well, if we can delete the defensive mistakes we made,”

“Thibaut Courtois had more work than De Gea, their defenders had more work than my defenders. They are very dangerous in counter-attack, we knew that. I said if we score at the 2-1 game is different, that was not for us and they scored the third and fourth”

The Special One added: “Football matches start at 0-0, this match started 1-0. It is like giving Chelsea chance to play how they want. Everything went in their direction.

“I was focused on the game, calm with a bit of adrenaline, I didn’t feel it different to any other big matches.”

Jose’ Mourinho was mad at Antonio Conte after the final whistle: the Portuguese manager went to shake the Italian’s hand to congratulate for the win, but meanwhile he whispered him something.

According to Italian sources, the ex Chelsea boss was infuriated for what Conte did some minutes after the 4-0: in a moment of uncontrollable passion and joy, the former Juventus and Italy coach turned to the stand and incidted the fans with ardor.

A gesture Mourinho didn’t like since he thought it was unrespectful and a lack of fair-paly towards Manchester United and their people, the Special One apparently said to him:

“Don’t do that [celebrate] at 4-0. 1-0 okay, but 4-0 is humiliating.”

Sunday afternoon at Stamford Bridge saw the return of former Chelsea boss and fans favorite Jose Mourinho after his sack last season. For the first time Mourinho got to face Chelsea as an opposing manager in the Premier League but things didn’t go as planned when Pedro lashed onto a loose ball to punish Manchester United as early as 30 seconds.

Things then got better for the Blues as Gary Cahill doubled the lead in 21′ minute from an Eden Hazard corner,and things looked really bright for the Blues as they threatened and bombarded the United defense with series of spontaneous attacking football and created numerous chances to punish United even further in the first half, but Chelsea took the 2-0 lead into half-time.

The second half began with United coming out of their shells to attack but all their efforts on goal were thwarted by the resilient combination of Nemanja Matic and N’golo Kante in the midfield,but United pressed further and were caught up on the counter,with Matic teeing up Hazard who passed the ball into the bottom right corner to beat David De Gea, Kante also joined the scoring party as he scored his first goal for the Blues following another fine breakout from Chelsea,with the frenchman beating Chris Smalling in the box. There was also a series of fine saves from Chelsea goalkeeper thibaut courtois to preserve Chelsea’s cleansheet but Cheslea were able to hold on to finish the game with an impressive scoreline of 4-0 to stretch their winning run of 3 games unbeaten and one point behind leaders Arsenal and Man City.
