Football: Chelsea sink Hull on Mourinho's return
LONDON, England (AFP) - Jose Mourinho made a winning return as Chelsea manager with a 2-0 success at home to promoted Hull City in the club's opening Premier League game on Sunday.
Back at Stamford Bridge after spells at Inter Milan and Real Madrid, Mourinho saw his side prevail through early goals from Oscar and Frank Lampard on a warm, sunny afternoon in west London.
The Europa League champions looked on course for a handsome win after scoring twice in the first 25 minutes, but they took their foot off the pedal thereafter, perhaps with a view to Wednesday's visit of Aston Villa.
"There are no doubts it was a deserved victory," Mourinho told Sky Sports.
