Manchester United has reduced the gap to Chelsea to just one point at the summit of the Barclays Premier League table after a pulsating 3-2 victory at Stamford Bridge. United won their first game against Chelsea in last 10 years at Stamford Bridge.
The match was a controversial one which ended up the League leaders ending up with nine men on the pitch. Branislav Ivanović was given a straight red after his tackle on Ashley Young as Ivanović was the last man between young and the Chelsea goalkeeper. The second red was shown to Fernando Torres for his second booking of the night after going down on an easy tackle from Jonny Evans.
United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had a different opinion about the game though as he feels they had a little slice of luck with Javier Hernandez's winner at Chelsea as the striker was marginally offside.
