Chelsea 1 – 3 Manchester United, September 2011
This Premier League match hosted at the Old Trafford, is certainly a meeting between the two teams that has gone down in history, but maybe one that the Chelsea fans want to forget. The game was home to a total of 4 goals which came from Manchester United’s; Rooney, Smalling and Nani and Chelsea’s Fernando Torres. This was a great win for the Manchester United team, allowing them to go to the top of Premier League table, 2 points clear. The win also allowed Alex Ferguson’s team to maintain their perfect league record. Manchester United ended the first half 3 up and a fierce comeback from the Chelsea boys seemed unlikely. It was noted that the Chelsea team missed many opportunities and poor defending resulted in the devastating loss. Although Torres was the only Chelsea team player to score in the 90 minute match, his first goal of the season was tarnished. This was due to a catastrophic miss, which has since been dubbed “the worst miss ever”, with an open goal and from 6 yards the Spanish footballer devastatingly missed a crucial goal for his team. With greater possession at a statistic of 56% it could be argued that Manchester United controlled the game and although Chelsea held their own at times, moments of weakness came out to play too often resulting in the loss.
Chelsea 2 – 1 Manchester United, April 2010
The Premier League game held at Manchester United’s home; Old Trafford saw 75,217 fans from both home and away come out to soak up the action from the stadium. This game was important as it saw Chelsea beat Manchester United to the front spot in the Premier League table. Chelsea’ goals came from Joe Cole, who gave the team the lead after only 20 minutes and Didier Drogba. Drogba had spent most of the match on the bench much to his and the fans frustration. The former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti had decided to keep the same formation that had previously just beat Aston Villa with a 7-1 win, which subsequently left Drogba on the sub bench. The manager’s attempt to win the game had Drogba come off the sub bench and strike a goal with only 11 minutes remaining, which sealed Chelsea’s victory. The goal was clearly offside however, but still counted helping the boys in blue win overall. Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney was left feeling frustrated as he was left watching on the side lines due to an injury. Ball possession between the teams was pretty even with only an 8% lead from Chelsea.
Chelsea 5 – 4 Manchester United, October 2012
The fourth round of the Carabao Cup saw an impressive 9 goals scored during the match. With a 5-4 finish for Chelsea. Ramires scored the 5th and final goal that helped clench the win over Manchester United. Manchester United achieved their opening goal in the 21st minute, which was closely followed less than ten minutes later with a Chelsea goal. The first half finished with a 2-1 lead to Manchester United. Meaning the second half was home to a “goal fest” of all proportions. Chelsea scored a further four goals in the remaining 45 minutes making their win over Manchester United pretty impressive. The Manchester team were not far behind though and narrowly missed out with their 4 goal finish. Possession of the ball was once again strong for both teams, however Chelsea led ever so slightly with 55.1%, which further cemented the opinions that Chelsea were the stronger team. Unfortunately, former Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson decided to play two centre halves that were perhaps inexperienced and this is certainly one of the factors that played against his team.
