Manchester United’s Chelsea Humiliation Means Mourinho Has Identical Record To Moyes After Nine Games

Published on:

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea outclassed Jose Mourinho and his boys from Manchester. The match ended 4-0 in favour of the London club which handed the Portuguese his biggest lost in the league.

pedroAnd now after the humiliating defeat at the hands of his former club, Mourinho holds an identical record to former Man Utd manager David Moyes in a total of nine matches after taking charge at Old Trafford.

joseTo make things worse for United fans – David Moyes’ squad had netted in more goals after a span of nine matches.

Manchester United have now suffered three defeats in their Premier League campaign this season and Mourinho’s refurbished side have actually scored one less than what Moyes’ side had managed.

The Portuguese splurged £145m on three big signings in the summer – which includes the likes of world record signing Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and  Zlatan Ibrahimovic came as a free agent.

However, Moyes had spent only £27m for securing the services Marouane Fellaini.

The only ray of hope in defence of Mourinho would be that his side suffered the third defeat after nine games but Moyes had faced the third defeat in his Premier League campaign after just six games.

However the major concern this time around would be maintaining consistency as United have failed to capitalise upon a good start this season and have struggled to maintain a series of good results.

Leaving aside Pemier League, both Mourinho and Moyes had started their journey by clinching Community Shield at Wembley. Moyes’ side had outplayed Wigan 2-0, all thanks to Robin van Persie, who scored a brace and Mourinho’s side had defeated reigning Premier League champions Leicester 2-1.
