LONDON -- Jose Mourinho enjoyed a trouble-free Chelsea return on Sunday, and Tottenham successfully negotiated its Premier League opener amid the Gareth Bale transfer uncertainty.

Chelsea ripped apart Hull inside 25 minutes at Stamford Bridge, with the early goals from Oscar and Frank Lampard securing a 2-0 victory.

While Lampard had earlier missed a penalty, Roberto Soldado had no such trouble from the spot for Tottenham, scoring on his debut to clinch a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Tottenham was without star attacker Bale, who is injured -- and being pursued by Real Madrid.

Sunday's pair of results completed a miserable weekend for the league newcomers, with Cardiff also failing to score in a 2-0 loss at West Ham on Saturday.
