Gary Cahill praised his side's performance after they smashed Manchester United 4-0 on Sunday. The Chelsea defender was delighted with how his side "dominated from the first minute to the last" as they ran riot over Jose Mourinho's Reds. Cahill, captaining Chelsea in John Terry's absence, scored the second goal with a close-range finish after Pedro handed Antonio Conte's Blues the lead within 30 seconds.
Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante added second-half strikes to seal Chelsea's third consecutive Premier League win. However, Cahill was pleased with another win and hailed the performance of the west London side. "Winning the game is the most important thing but the performance today was fantastic," Cahill told Sky Sports. "We dominated from the first minute to the last and it was a really impressive performance from us. "I couldn't miss from there," Cahill added, speaking about his strike. "I'm delighted to get a goal. It was a decent moment in the game.
