The Portuguese notched his first victory over Chelsea on Sunday, giving him a least one win vs every PL team he has managed against
The Red Devils outclassed Mourinho’s former club on Sunday and, while the result could help shake up the top of the table, it also serves to complete the Portuguese’s Premier League ledger.
That the mark was set in a game against the club who employed him for two successful stints will only add to the delight for Mourinho.
While United are well off the pace set by Chelsea this year, the Blues are now just four points ahead of Tottenham after Mourinho’s history-making victory.
TOP-FOUR RACE HEATING UP
Okay, we doubt you missed the 2-0 win over Chelsea, but it’s worth stressing the importance of that victory after our top-four rivals Liverpool and Manchester City both won on Saturday. The Reds are now in fifth place and four points off the Champions League qualification places, but crucially with at least one game in hand on the teams above.

CATCHING SIR ALEX’S REDS
Our Premier League unbeaten run now stands at 22 matches (W12 D10) and that’s the longest within a single season by any team since 2010/11, when Sir Alex Ferguson’s men reached 24 fixtures. Meanwhile, Chelsea failed to register a shot on target in a Premier League match for the first time since September 2007. Who was that against? Yes, it was Manchester United at Old Trafford.
