Lampard crash in Premier League debut with Chelsea: Lose 4-0 to Manchester United

Frank Lampard’s first Premier League match in charge of Chelsea turned into a nightmare on Sunday as his side were hammered 4-0 at Manchester United.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring with an 18th-minute penalty and Rashford, Anthony Martial and debutant Daniel James secured a convincing victory for the home side.

Defender Harry Maguire made his debut for United and they were soon ahead when Kurt Zouma fouled Rashford and the England striker stepped up to convert the penalty himself as United moved ahead.

Chelsea matched United for the next 45 minutes, with Emerson and Tammy Abraham both hitting the woodwork.

But Martial made it 2-0 on 65 minutes and two minutes later it was 3-0 when Rashford scored his second. Debutant James completed the scoring with a fourth nine minutes from time.

“Four mistakes for the goals, let’s get that out straight away because we have to be self-critical about that,” Lampard admitted to Sky TV.

“But other than that – for 60 minutes we controlled the game. (Hit) the woodwork, balls across the face (of the area) and I think poor decisions in the final third when we should be able to get shots away.

“At half-time we should be in the lead and early in the second half I didn’t mind it and then all of a sudden the second and third goals, two mistakes, and it’s much easier for them to play at 3-0 up.

“At 1-0 we were the better team but I can’t stand here and look happy with that because it’s 4-0 and three points.”

  1. Lampard should not have chosen Zuma over Luiz, that is just a big error.

  2. Best team lost. Second Utd goal a gift from ref. Where was VAR ? Maguire bears hugs Abraham and pulls him to ground ref watches close by with Its Red utd specs on and does nothing.

  3. Lampard will be sacked by next month, just watch it.

  4. I can’t believe that any living, breathing person will choose Zouma over David Luiz. Wonders shall never end.

  5. Utd have the best centre half in the world. Simply unstoppable.

  6. Thought they were both very average. 4-0 flattered Utd! Both won’t finish In Top four as are simply not good enough and have no depth
