The much anticipated match ended in a draw. man utd had gr8 start to match. they took the early lead in 14 mint. but they could't hold on to the lead. chlesea fought hard for the equaliser and they got it in the second half from the substitute maluda. well, comparing the two teams performance, i fell chelsea played better football than man utd. chlesea dint bring luck with them into the match. Before the match started deco was injured. he was injured in the practise session and was replaced with ballack. the next blow came from cahvalio, who was injured in the early minutes. while comming to manutd, the really played well in the early minutes of the game. as soon as they got the lead they went a bit defensive and chlsea started to dominate the match. but credict has to be given to man utd for there defence. the stunning factor is, man utd ended up with 7 yellow cards and man utd ended up with only 1. man utd were bit rough and hard on chelsea players. but they picked the much wanted points from the match.

yup, my prediction was spot on again. A much anticipated 1-1 draw.lol. Damn, should have gone down to bet on exact score! lol. Anyway, i would say the result is a fair one. Both sides are equally match, however with Chelsea winning more of the possession. Probably because of their 5 man midfield. I was shocked to see the ref handling out 7 yellow cards. Perhaps Man utd players were abit heated up, but i cant see why ronaldo and ferdinand gets yellow for dissent. The match ended quite abruptly, because i'm not sure the ref is blowing for a foul or a full time whistle. Anyway,2 players in this match caught my eyes. The first is bosingwa, i think he was a real threat on the right, swinging in accurate crosses. Another would be J.Evans, the 20 yr old chap. He's strong in air and reacts quite fast. I'm sure his mature performance will see him in more first team action in coming matches.

yep, we both will defenetly be happy with the result as u and me are liverpool and arsenal fans.but i lost some money betting on chelsea win. in my vieew, chelsea dominated the match and man utd were a bit defensive in there play after the first goal. i never heared about bosingwa untill scolari bought him to chelsea. yep he played well, i also liked alex defending. for me the biggest disappointments in the match were berbatov and ballack. carlos trevz would have been a better option than berbatov. deco and cavalio were a big blow for chelsea chances. but on the whole, i am happy with the result. draw is fair result.

yep, i do agree, the ending was a bit abrupt. even i cant understand why ronaldo got yelloow card. ref might have thought that he commented his decission.. well, i cant recollect why ferdinand got yellow card.

Ronaldo's a good actor...SIMULATING!!! haha he was flying !! i really feel ashamed for him just when the ref raise up the yellow card .he deserve that card... Ferdinand ??? he's shows no courtesy for the ref ,the same from other players too.... the tackles were not serious but it was given after a repeated no of warnings....they are lucky on that day ...

It was quite a good match overall, with both sides showing strong defense. I do feel that things might have been different if Deco played. Both defense were able to stop Chelsea's Human Battling Ram and Man Utd Supersonic Ronaldo. I was certainly abit shocked to see how fast Ronaldo can be, which clearly shows the difference in levels as compared to other players. He is literally floating around! However, Chelsea were considered unlucky, missing out some great chances.

In my opinion, it was a fair result. United played better in the first half, but they stepped back a bit to early, in my opinion, and Chelsea attacked all of the second half. Kalou's goal came naturally (after Anelka's monumental miss), considering the constant pressure Chelsea kept United under. I think it was a poor performance for Berbatov today, maybe he should have been replaced, and not Park.

I don't even realizes that Berbatov was playing, but successfully neutralize by Chelsea defenders, Fergie made a mistake there as he could have send Tevez instead in my opinion . Manu were very lucky with that lone scrappy goal as there was sudden change of game plan for Chelsea cos of Deco & Carvalho's injuries. but Chelsea nevertheless are right back on the track... CHELSEA are simply INVINCIBLE at home & i'm waiting for the 100th unbeaten record celebration.
