Twitter Blows Up After Chelsea's Blistering Start Against Man Utd as Pedro Sends Fans Crazy

Published on: 22 October 2016

In a match that many feared would perhaps replicate the dire 0-0 draw between Manchester United and Liverpool on Monday, things didn't quite turn out that way - Chelseagot off to a rapid start thanks to winger Pedro.

Just thirty seconds were on the clock when the former Barcelona star latched onto an innocuous ball forward that had Daley Blind and David de Gea scrambling; moments later,the ball was nestling in the net and Stamford Bridge erupted in joy.

Stamford Bridge wasn't the only place erupting as some viewers took to Twitter to express their joy, and bemusement, at the nightmare start to Jose Mourinho's return to West London:

Chelsea swarming all over United. And who is this 'Pedro'? I know not of his brilliant work.

@SkyFootball De Gea a liability yet again. Best in the world?😂😩
