Comments:

This was Manchester United's biggest win at Old Trafford since a 4-0 victory against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on 30 September 2017. United had now won their opening game in five consecutive seasons in the top division for the first time since 1910. The Red Devils kept only seven clean sheets in the previous season in the Premier League. Only relegated Huddersfield Town and Fulham kept fewer (five each).

Comments:

This was Frank Lampard's first Premier League game in charge of Chelsea. It became the heaviest defeat for a Chelsea manager's first senior game in charge since Danny Blanchflower's Blues lost 7-2 at Middlesbrough in League Division One in December 1978. They lost only one of their last 13 games in all competitions in the previous season (2-0 at Liverpool in the Premier League on 14 April 2019). This was the first time that Chelsea had lost their opening game of a Premier League season that was played on a Sunday (played 12, won eight).
