Chelsea 3-1 Manchester United: Eto'o hits hat trick as Blues stroll

Samuel Eto'o bagged a hat trick as Chelsea comfortably beat Manchester United 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Eto'o gave the hosts an early lead, with his long-range curler deflecting off Michael Carrick and looping over the stranded David de Gea before two simple tap-ins either side of halftime effectively wrapped up the victory.
