Two goals by Marcus Rashford helped inspire Manchester United to a 4-0 victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford.
Chelsea started strongly in Frank Lampard’s first match in charge as head coach, with Tammy Abraham shooting powerfully against the post.
But it was Man Utd who went 1-0 upon 18 minutes when Rashford scored a penalty after being fouled by Kurt Zouma.
Chelsea’s Emerson was also denied by the woodwork before the break, but Man Utd scored the second goal in the 65th minute after Anthony Martial finished off Andreas Pereira’s cross.
Two minutes later Rashford latched on to Paul Pogba’s chipped through-ball to make it 3-0 before substitute Daniel James struck a fourth on his Premier League debut.
Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Man Utd’s other two debutants, helped to keep a clean sheet for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
