published at6 months ago

Manchester United ran riot on Chelsea on Sunday in a thumping 4-0 win to open their Premier League season.

Marcus Rashford gave them the lead from the penalty spot during a close first-half in which Chelsea hit the woodwork twice.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men pulled away after half-time in devastating fashion on the counter-attack.

Anthony Martial doubled their lead after converting a low cross before Rashford added his second, taking in a delightful long ball from Paul Pogba before sliding it past Kepa.

Daniel James replaced Andreas Pereira in the 74th minute - and his goal rounded off a brilliant opening weekend for Manchester United.
