Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has expressed his delight at the Blues' comfortable 2-0 victory over Hull City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
35-year-old Lampard, who signed a one-year contract extension this summer, scored a spectacular first-half free-kick to give his side a decisive advantage over the Premier League newcomers after Oscar had given them the lead.
And Lampard, who also saw a penalty attempt saved by Scottish international Allan McGregor, was pleased with the professional manner in which Chelsea comfortably dispatched their first opponents of what is Jose Mourinho's second stint at the club.
"It was a great start, we were very bright, particularly in the first half when we moved the ball very quickly and created a lot of chances, and we have been working on that pre-season," he told the club's official website.
"It was nice to see it come out in our game and at 2-0 at half-time we were comfortable. The second half was a little bit down but the game was won. We were so bright in the first half that maybe sometimes there is a bit of a come down in the second half but we were very comfortable.
"We will work on that and we will take the positives of the first half, look how we can improve and try to keep up a good start."
Chelsea, who will contest the UEFA Super Cup against Bayern Munich in Prague on August 30, are in League action once again on Wednesday night as they welcome Aston Villa to Stamford Bridge. They face Manchester United at Old Trafford on August 26.
