Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Man Utd at Old Trafford yesterday was probably the finest performance by the Blues this season.
They fully deserved the win as they took the game to United right from the start, and hustled the United players all over the pitch until Joe Cole slipped a brilliant backheel past Van Der Sar, after Florent Malouda had one of his telling little runs down the wing.
Man Utd forced themselves back into the game after getting the hairdryer treatment from Ferguson at half-time, but Chelsea managed to hold them. And when Didier Drogba finally came onto the pitch and scored a brilliant second goal (albeit from an offside position) it looked like it was all over for the defending champions.
But United started to play, and when they pulled one back through Macheda it made for a scary last 15 minutes for Chelsea fans, as United pushed desperately for an equalizer, but it wasn’t to be and Chelsea took pole position in the race for the title.
They certainly deserve it after that performance!
