Eidur Gudjohnsen secured the perfect start to Jose Mourinho's reign as Chelsea coach on Sunday as he led the Blues to victory against Manchester
United in the Barclays Premiership opener at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea were never truly extended by a United side ravaged by injuries and suspensions, with home goalkeeper Petr Cech not seriously troubled all
Once Gudjohnsen had struck on 14 minutes, Chelsea squeezed the life out of the game to ensure Mourinho retained his edge over Sir Alex Ferguson
following last season's Champions League victory with Porto.
