Jose Mourinho started his second spell as Chelsea manager in comfortable fashion as his side beat Hull City 2-0. More
@iainmacintosh : I keep thinking that Hull have switched to a back three, but it's just Elmohamady's unique take on 'positioning.'
@henrywinter : #cfc 2 #hcafc 0 ht. Chelsea very fluid. De Bruyne excellent. Abramovich smiling. Hawkeye working. Hull willing but outclassed
@McDonnellDan : How many of Belgium's 11 million population are brilliant footballers? They're everywhere. De Bruyne so comfortable in Chelsea midfield.
@pushkar_np : @Sean_Fay The long lost mojo is back for Chelsea ..
@Zonal_Marking : That's a lovely goal. Oscar has created space for KDB really nicely so far.
@dalejohnsonESPN : Australian cricket team at Chelsea. Expecting Hull to put up a good fight before collapsing at around 5.30pm.
@henrywinter : Love-in at the Bridge for Mourinho: Banners include: 'Simply the best' 'one of us' 'we love Jose' and 'welcome home' #cfc
@OliverKayTimes : The stadium announcer at Stamford Bridge declares "I'm looking forward to introducing this manager more than the last one ..."
@OllieHolt22 : At Stamford Bridge for the return of Mourinho. Air of happy expectation here. A test for the 'never go back' adage.
@MatthewStanger : De Bruyne has impressed in pre-season, but still surprised Mata left out. He played a part in 24 PL goals last year & was Chelsea's PotY.
Manager: José Mourinho
Manager: Steve Bruce

Any one remember Hull's last first season in the premiership was it 2-1 to Hull away win at Arsenal and 1-0 to Hull winat Spurs in successive games? Hull will have high scoring defeats a few times this season along with a few other teams (that's the premiership) I might add. But they will surprise a few teams and perhaps Arsenal again? Anyone impressed with Arsenals recruitment and first match showing against Villa?
stevie boy,why you watching the best when you don't like them?.Stay wiv the rest,then you can be in your rightful place.As for Mr.A. posing,he doesn't need to physically,but financially he poses to the tune of billions and your jealousy stems from this very point saddo.As for you and that fool'you cant 't handle the truth'Arsenal may be able to put 7 past hull(in 2057),but hull would put 8 past them right now.Don't forget,hull played well above themselves and could do nothing against the Blues,with Chelsea in cruise control throughout the game and playing all their subs to get an idea of systems,just treated it like a friendly really,thats all.Had they all gone in,it would have been about twelve nil.Go support your own teams boys,they're gonna need it,thats if you actually go to matches or just sit there pulling your twigs all day,more like it me-thinks.
ok im not trying to be rude to chelsea, or supporters, but its like a joke Muorinho and abramovich the camara's were more on them then watching the actual match. both poseing for the telly what a joke, and also got rid of the dug-out so he can be seen better, omfg lol. newly promoted hull and chelski can only manage two goals, thats not very good, and in my mind very average. i realy dont see whats so damn special about this so called self apointed special one, the only cups chelski have won have come from russian mafia money, and not from your own club merrit.
"scores and final results a decisive step towards the team's positive results. CHELSEA you can do anything for a victory GT you are the legend you LAMPARD theBLUES idol true enough, the opponent hull city
Players Cheat...Fans talk complete rubbish.....Teams like Hull cant compete with Russian Mafia....What a complete mess Football has become
All three promoted sides lost this weekend and it is going to be a long hard season but credit to Hull today for just keeping the score down to two
Just watched Lampard's free kick. Please tell me why the ref did blow it down when Ivanovic and Cahlill pushed the wall apart so Lampard could get the shot through. Just wondering how much the ref was paid off by Ibram or the Pathetic One. Didn't matter in the end as Hull is brutal. Might go 0-38 this year playing like that.
very boring, not a contending performance
Say what you like about Mourinho, he's a fantastic manager. Chelsea will be tough to beat this year.
Torres cheats again on the first day of the season, needs technology to stop this and disallow goal from free kick.
I notice the bottom 2 clubs are settling into their season long positions excellent
Is it me or does yahoo only run slow when one posts non pro manurenited comments? Surely not ?
I see loserpool and Fulham are keeping 5th spot warm for manurenited
I do so hope that yahoo are going to get their act together this season. Mistakes and comments running slow or not at all
you really are as stupid as you look bnob ooops bob
"A good horse will never return to gaze on the same field again"-- Chinese proverb of thousands years...meaning, Muorinho won't be as successful as before...
Mourinho's getting fat!
Not being funny but Arsenal would put about 7 past Hull. This Chelski team looks ordinary.
