Premier League champs Chelsea hosted Sunderland at the weekend at Stamford Bridge, after the recent sacking of manager Jose Mourinho, who had failed to deliver this time around after a superb last season. The Blues were being managed by caretaker boss Steve Holland for the game against the Black Cats and were looking to impress as they head into the new year. The home side took the lead from Branislav Ivanovic gave the west London side the lead in just the 5th minute of the game, with former Barcelona man Pedro adding a second in the 13th minute to make it 2-0. There were more chances but no more goals scored, as the home side went into the break with a two goal cushion.

After the restart, Oscar added a third on the 50th minute, with Borini scoring a consolation for the away side a couple of minutes later. For once this season, it was quite a comfortable win for the Londoners, who are looking to gradually climb up the points table.

Guus Hiddink has now been appointed as the Portuguese manager’s successor till the end of the current campaign and hopefully he can make a difference at the club.

It will be quite interesting to see how things go for the current champions of England under the new management, though a section of the fans did not really support the Mourinho sacking.

Here are how some of the fans reacted on Twitter including United fans as well, after the Blues managed a 3-1 win on Saturday afternoon:
