Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard's first Premier League game as the Club manager ended in a humiliating defeat by Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Two goals from Marcus Rashford and one each from Anthony Martial and debutant Daniel James helped the Reds to a comfortable 4-0 victory in the Premier League's standout fixture from the opening weekend.
The game appeared to be evenly poised at the hour mark, the sides separated only by a first-half penalty from Rashford. 
But two goals in the space of a minute allowed United to breathe easily in the game's final quarter.
    A goal for 21-year-old James shortly after he had come onto the pitch was the icing on the cake.

    "We rode our luck a little bit in the first half, we'd given up too many chances and we were too sloppy on the ball," Harry Maguire, making his first start just a week after signing for United, told Sky Sports.
    "But in the second half it felt like we were a lot better, much more ourselves and we controlled the game. I think we thoroughly deserved the three points in the end," he added.
