Mourinho back to English football with a win

Chelsea's manager, Mourinho is back, and he make sure that his side performed exceedingly well in their first game under his charge. A 2 - 0 against Hull City at Stamford Bridge. 

Almost six years since leaving the Blues, the self-proclaimed Special One enjoyed a rapturous reception and a strong showing from his side on his homecoming.

Special, Genius, Legend....Mourinho....he's back!

You don't have to be a a genius to know that Mourinho will start all the psychological game now, with constant comments on rival, Manchester United as well as his pursuit for Wayne Rooney. 

Well, in following up with Moyes' Manchester United's first competitive victory in Swansea, Chelsea scored 2 against Hull City. 

It did not all go Chelsea's way as Frank Lampard saw a sixth-minute penalty saved by Allan McGregor and goal-line technology came into play when the Scotland goalkeeper saved a Branislav Ivanovic header in first-half stoppage-time, correctly ruling no goal had been scored.

Chelsea were already two goals up at that point, through Oscar and Lampard's stunning 30-yard free-kick, with the three points all but secure.

Hull put up more resistance in the second period to give reason for optimism, but at times it seemed like they were in a different league to their hosts.

The goals came when Hazard received the ball on the left, cut inside and found De Bruyne, who fed the on-running Oscar and the Brazilian prodded underneath the advancing McGregor.

Oscar celebration with Torres after goal

The Scot again denied Lampard, this time from the edge of the area, as Chelsea pressed forward relentlessly in search of a second.

It came after Torres was awarded a dubious free-kick 30 yards out, against James Chester.

Lampard's rapier-like strike dipped into the top corner past McGregor and Chelsea's record goalscorer wheeled away, racing towards the dugout and his manager.

Mourinho is back

Well, it's 2-0 though the final score with no goals after that....nevertheless, it is a winning return for the Special One, Mourinho...
