Premier League—Stamford Bridge, London.

Chelsea 3-1 Manchester United

Scorers: Eto'o (18', 43' 50'), Hernandez (71')

 

Chelsea comfortably dispatched Manchester United on the back of a super Samuel Eto'o hat-trick.

The Cameroonian netted two first-half strikes and added an opportunistic third in the second half. Javier Hernandez's late goal was merely a consolation.

Nemanja Vidic was shown a straight red card late on for a challenge on Eden Hazard, leaving David Moyes without his key defensive cog for the midweek cup fixture against Sunderland.
