Can you name Jose Mourinho’s first competitive Chelsea XI, 2004?


On August 15, 2004, Jose Mourinho took charge of Chelsea in a competitive game for the first time as his side beat Manchester United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

For Mourinho, it was his first strike in England as part of his early rivalry with Sir Alex Ferguson and set the tone for a campaign in which Chelsea comfortably won the Premier League title.
