As homecomings go, Jose Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge was as bad as they come.

Chelsea scored four unanswered goals to consign Manchester United to a humbling defeat, Jose Mourinho's heaviest as a manager since 2010.

Goals from Pedro, Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante helped lift Antonio Conte's side up to fourth in the table while Manchester United drop to seventh.

Jose Mourinho received, understandably, the majority of attention as Twitter tried to come to terms with the shock of Manchester United's dismal performance.

Former Chelsea striker Eidur Gudjohnsen, who won the Premier League under Mourinho in 2005, landed a cheeky dig at the Portuguese manager.

Referring to Mourinho's two title-winning stints at Stamford Bridge, Gudjohnsen wrote: "Jose still knows how to get the best out of Chelsea!"

Gudjohnsen spent six seasons at Chelsea, playing a starring role in Jose Mourinho's first Premier League title triumph in 2005.

As the post-mortem gathered pace on Manchester United's humiliating defeat, attention quickly turned to Jose Mourinho's world record signing, Paul Pogba.

The defeat represented Paul Pogba's worst ever defeat in club football and the £89m midfielder's largely anonymous performance was mocked on social media.

"Matic eases past Pogba who crudely brings him down. An obvious booking for the world's most expensive player," wrote Chelsea's official Twitter account as Antonio Conte's side sat pretty on a 3-0 lead.

Despite playing in the number ten role for Manchester United, Pogba failed to create a single chance in 90 minutes of football at Stamford Bridge.
