Rashford grabs brace as United put four past Lampard's Chelsea

Rashford grabs brace as United put four past Lampard's Chelsea”

The France midfielder recovered from a hard start to set up United's third and fourth goals in impressive fashion during Sunday's 4-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford.

While Lampard possibly wanted to ease Pulisic into the action, US soccer fans were looking to see the most expensive American player make a start in the Premier League.

"The players we played today, and on the bench, are the players we have". We were clearly the better team for 45 or even 60 minutes but we made individual errors that led to four goals from five shots.

"Coming into half-time we were a bit lucky".

"It was the first game of the season at Old Trafford, so there were few nerves in the first half". "As we said to the boys before the game, we have found the way we want to play and a way we believe in", he said.

It was an bad start for the new Chelsea boss in his first competitive game on the bench for his old club who struck the woodwork twice in the first half but paid for their defensive frailties as Anthony Martial and Dan James also scored.

He also defended his selection of Mason Mount following criticism from José Mourinho, the former Chelsea and United No 1. We took risks but that's the way here.

"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. "There's a reality check for us all".

"They are a counter-attacking team, it's a big strength, they have pace and if you turn over the ball or give them opportunities they will counter", said Lampard. He's [Maguire] done exactly what we've signed him for, his presence in both boxes, his calmness and composure on the ball. Once in a while, he is caught out of position defensively, but that means we can counter-attack, and his second goal was outstanding. It wasn't a 4-0 game for long periods but we need to accept it. "At the same time, it was nowhere near a 4-0".
