"I can't drag people out of the medical room, whether they're experienced or not", said Lampard after his first competitive game as Chelsea boss.

In his first outing at The Theatre of Dreams in a United shirt the most expensive defender in world football put on a solid display, keeping Frank Lampard's attacking Chelsea at bay. The second-half performance was very pleasing.

Not only did Rashford strike twice but his attacking partner Martial also found the target after the break and the victory was rounded off by substitute James, a close-season signing from Swansea City, marking his United debut with the fourth.

Mourinho, working for Sky Sports, said Lampard could have picked a team with more "know how" instead of selecting youngsters Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham for the 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford. "We moved it nicely second half and our front three are so unsafe on the break", added the centre-half.

Martial converted from a low cross from Andreas Pereira before Rashford doubled his total 17 seconds after kick-off.

In the 81st minute, James collected the ball from Paul Pogba on the right wing and after originally hesitating with his shot, beat Kepa Arrizabalaga at his far post via a deflection.

"I'm at Manchester. I have fun with my team-mates, I always want to win matches and I always give my best when I'm on the pitch".
