Another post-Jose Mourinho era began at Chelsea with the players enraging some of their own fans inside Stamford Bridge.

Another post-Jose Mourinho era began at Chelsea with the players enraging some of their own fans inside Stamford Bridge.

By winning with ease.

Two days after being fired for Chelsea’s feeble English Premier League title defense and ”palpable discord” with his squad, Mourinho’s name was chanted throughout the 3-1 victory over Sunderland on Saturday.

Blame was clearly not being apportioned to Mourinho for the nine losses in 16 league games before Saturday.

Each goal that ended a three-game winless run in the league only seemed to make the atmosphere more toxic as Mourinho’s name – not the scorer’s – was sung.

Branislav Ivanovic headed Chelsea in front after five minutes, Pedro Rodriguez doubled the lead in the 13th, and Oscar scored a penalty after the interval.
