Chelsea managed a comfortable 2-0 victory over Hull City in the opening Premier League match for the 2013-14 season. José Mourinho’s return to the club was a momentous occasion, as Oscar and Frank Lampard helped Chelsea take all three points. Chelsea could have easily had won by a bigger margin had it not been for excellence saves from Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor. This is a great start for the blues, who will now be taking on Aston Villa on Wednesday.
