1-0 C. Smalling 8'
2-0 Nani 37'
3-0 W. Rooney 45'
3-1 F. Torres 46'
Both teams could have scored more goals. Torres had potential to score a hat trick, including this number: http://www.youtube.com/watc... I feel that Chelsea should have gotten a point this game they played really well in the second half.
Ashley Cole made a disgraceful foul on Chicharito, it could have been a leg breaker. Should have been a red card and a penalty. Cole was lucky! 3-1 CHAMP19NS!
agreed. why the hell did the ref give him a yellow in the box doesn't that mean it was a foul in the box?
and United is doing the killing week after week!
The amount of chances missed from both teams was unbelievable.
chelsea had double the number of shots but when you have torres upfront we realy had nothing to worry about lol... miss of the season for sure shame rooney didnt get a few more but a great result especially with city drawing
To be fair this was Torres' best game for Chelsea, he was their most dangerous player but I'll be honest, when he missed that chance, I punched the air and started cheering like it was a goal, what a match, truly heartstopping moments.
chelsea got at us to easy. anderson gives the ball away too much, cant we just keep the ball for 5 mins without trying to score?
poor performances all round.. cleverly is a better player than i gave him credit for he helps dictate the pace of the game and doesnt lose possession as much as carrick and fletcher although fletch is still rusty after being out for so long
Woop Woop! Nani destroyed Ashley Cole.
Last time Ca$hley got lost in Spain, because he couldn't find Valencia, now this time Nani make him inside out lol
After 100 PL appearances Nani has scored as many and assisted 3 times as many goals as Ronaldo did after 100 PL appearances. Nani = class.
here an Interest stats Nani 100 games = 19 goals, 33 assists Ronaldo 100 games = 19 goals, 12 assists
great result united! and as for torres, no excuses for that! .
aside from that failure, torress played really well last night. mata-sturridge-torres is a wonderful mix, they just need more time, especially mata. chelsea player really good last night, im sure if they keep playing like that in stamford, they'll crush MU.
crush united? well we'll have to see about that :P
Happy with the win but not the performance. The misses alone by both teams in the 2nd half was shocking. Rooney and Torres should've both had hat-tricks. I was really impressed with De Gea's goalkeeping but the defense were very shaky for the whole 90 minutes.
United's defence all season has been questionable its just that they have been taking every chance in front of goal before that second half, it will be interesting how long they can keep this up, cause last year Chelsea started like this and then we know what happened there and I hope Torres can come back after that miss he looked good all second half today till that miss
Guess, he's back.
What defense question all this season, idiots, you need to come back and watch the whole match,. This match the midfield was shaky, same with a defense a bit. Although not a good performance but I take the 3pts thank you very much, but we have to improve with the midfield
I don't even know what to say...at least we gave a fairly good account for ourselves. A couple of chances taken or take away that freak gift of a 3rd goal and this would have been a different story. We're still in transition and are getting better game after game at least. I just hope that the miss will jar Torres back to reality.
In fairness, Chelsea could EASILY have come away with anything from this game-they managed a shedload of chances(more than Utd)-and as Smalling was offside for the opener it's easy to see how things could have been different. Utd were just more clinical than Chelsea today and neither team will be happy with the way they defended. Torres is now doing the hard things with ease and seems just to need to worry about the easy stuff! Game could have ended 5-5 and it would have been a bit fairer and, IMO, only a Utd zealot would be churlish enough not to feel the scoreline a little flattering.
3-1 Nani was on fire!
we were outplayed for the majority of the match.. if chelsea had played sturridge as their main striker they probably would have won with all the chances they created... thankfully torres got the nod :) we did enough to win and thats all that matters
I was really pulling for Chelsea, I would say that Torres' performance was disappointing yet again , but at least he scored a goal and Rooney also missed a clear shot. Overall, fair win for ManU, they look great so far.
there whole team play has changed so much from last season you can see the result of losing to Barca in the CLF. they are now playing like barca, their passing game is the second best in europe and light years ahead of most english teams. it explains there form.
i have noticed we play the ball on the floor alot more now and its all 1 or 2 touches.. its good to see
Torres played well, he just missed two good chances
Torres played freaking awesome,thats the F TOrres I know from Liverpool, if only he could play like this all the time.
:) Shooting the ball outside!!!
Haha better than slipping and completely missing the clear penalty shot right. Lol. Asi que, chinga tu madre.
