Chelsea 2-0 Hull City – Premier League – 18th August 2013

Britain Soccer Premier League

Back in the bosom of the Stamford Bridge faithful, Jose Mourinho looked as though he had never left, as he oversaw a comfortable 2-0 win against Hull, making it 61 home league games without defeat for the Portuguese coach at the Bridge.

Kevin De Bruyne was handed a start for the Blues and the Belgian made the most of his chance, producing an outstanding midfield display. The goals came courtesy of Oscar after just 13 minutes and then  courtesy of a free-kick from Frank Lampard, which Hull ‘keeper Allan McGregor really should have saved. To be fair to the Tigers’ glovesman, he did stop a Frankie Lamps spot-kick prior to the free-kick goal.

Steve Bruce’s Hull worked hard to get back into the game with Robert Koren going close but overall this was Chelsea’s and Mourinho’s special day.

    What is the special [needs] one doing not playing luiz and mata is he thick or just want the sack early? john{thomas}Terry and fat frank should be benched where they belong Roman won’t like winning 1 / 2 nil with 300million pounds worth of talent on the bench. Moureen better watch his back Romey will have a word otherwise!!

    hate the club, hate the manager and hate the supporters… but seeing mourinho at the bridge just fits so nicely.

    @blueindaass (seriously?): Luiz is injured, Mata is still not fully fit, and Mou was resting “Dave” (just back from international duty) for the tougher match against Aston Villa on Wednesday. Google is your friend.
