M.United 3 Vs 1 Chelsea

Report: United 3 Chelsea 1

The champions beat Chelsea 3-1 thanks to goals from Chris Smalling, Nani and Wayne Rooney in an action-packed clash at Old Trafford. Although Fernando Torries replied for the Londoners at the start of the second half, his dreadful late miss only added to the ecstatic mood around the ground.

Sir Alex's side could even afford a missed penalty from Rooney and several spurned chances en route to a fifth straight victory in the Barclays Premier League to go two points clear at the top of the table.

United were slower into stride than in this fixture last term, and yet still led after only eight minutes. David De Gea had been called into drastic action to kick away a Ramires shot early on but the opener soon arrived, in front of the Stretford End.

Ashley Young was fouled and swung the free-kick over for Smalling to bury an unstoppable header for his first league goal for the Reds. Replays showed the defender may have been marginally offside and the goal provoked a decent response from the visitors. When Anderson passed the ball straight to the Spaniard, Old Trafford held its breath but the £50million man dragged his shot wastefully wide of the far post.

De Gea caught a Bransilav Ivanovic header and saw Frank Lampard lash wide, after the England international midfielder rightly escaped a handball shout inside his own area. There was an almighty let-off on 26 minutes when Torres was onside and in the clear but squared the ball.

Big Match Preview - Bulgaria vs England

Terry: England expects

England captain John Terry is ready and waiting to lead the Three Lions into action against Bulgaria tonight, in what is a crucial European Qualifier for Fabio Capello's men.

Sitting joint top of Group G alongside Montenegro, the Chelsea defender knows the international side can't afford to slip-up in Sofia following earlier draws against Switzerland and the aforementioned Hrabri sokoli.

Despite a 4-0 victory against Lothar Matthaus' side almost a year ago to the day, Terry is well aware that the opposition will provide a very different challenge on home soil, and England will have to be on their guard if they are to collect three points and bring them back to Wembley.

"It will be tough, but we'll be fully ready and prepared for the game. Bulgaria's obviously going to be a very hostile place to go," said the centre back.

"By the time we kick-off, we'll know everything we need to know and how they play and their strengths and weaknesses. The manager prepares extensively for every game, so come kick-off we'll be ready."

Reinstated as captain by Capello back in March, Terry is full of praise for the preparation that the Italian makes ahead of every England match.

"He goes into a lot of depth. Our preparation first and foremost is to worry about our own formation and tactics," he continued.

"As the week goes on we start to look at videos of our opponents and how they are likely to play, and then start to focus on the individuals. First and foremost though, we concentrate on how we're going to play."

Given the previous victory against Bulgaria, and the 2-0 win against Wales at the Millenium Stadium, it would be easy for the Three Lions to look beyond the forthcoming fixtures and towards a trip to Montenegro on October 7th.

Man Utd 2-1 Chelsea

Manchester United defeated Chelsea to all but win the league title – Chicharito scored early and Nemanja Vidic headed a second before a number of dubious decisions from Howard Webb, a goal from Frank Lampard and profligacy from the Reds set up a tense finale.

Sir Alex sprung a surprise when Patrice Evra wasn’t named in the 18 – but as ever, any doubts over the defence are always better answered up the other end of the pitch. It was arguably the biggest match of a generation for United, on the cusp of 19 league titles and knowing that beating the current Champions would give the engravers cause to prepare – but the hosts showed no nerves, scoring inside the first minute.

In fact, barely 30 seconds had hit the clock by the time Chicharito smashed the ball into the net – Giggs threaded a great pass to Park, whose through ball to the Mexican was equally majestic – Chicharito got past David Luiz and fired into the near post. Old Trafford was rocking and Wayne Rooney hit a couple of stunning long range efforts after great moves, one saved and one wide.

Chelsea barely threatened, and United stormed into a 2-0 lead midway through the first half. Perhaps having picked up on the failure of corners going in first time, the Reds seemed to be going for the second phase of play from the set pieces – and it worked a treat as Giggs picked up a return, outfoxed Kalou, and crossed for Vidic to thunder home a header at the far post.

The Blues then had their own spell of overdue pressure, with Kalou and Drogba forcing van der Sar to make great saves, before the game got a little nasty. Branislav Ivanovic should have been off after committing not one, not two, but three bookable offences yet stayed on, while Michael Essien and Wayne Rooney also found themselves in the book.

Chelsea couldn’t be much worse than they were and made two changes, with Alex and Ramires coming on. But it made no obvious immediate impact and United should have had two penalties through two Antonio Valencia led attacks. Valencia was superb throughout and his cross was clearly handled by Lampard just after the break – and the winger was felled by John Terry in the box in the 64th minute. United may well have had cause to believe things were going against them when Ivanovic – who should have been off – headed a Ramires cross to Lampard – who should have conceded a penalty – and the England midfielder converted inside in the 6 yard box.

The hosts conspired to make it a nervy last 20 minutes but more through their own wastefulness – Rooney had three chances inside of a minute with 10 left, but seemed too anxious to convert any. Likewise, his strike partner seemed to be a little over excited with a chance provided by Valencia after a Carrick free kick caught Chelsea out. Fernando Torres might have done better with an effort he dragged wide of the near post before Chicharito lashed at another chance in the last minute of normal time – but United were able to get over the finish line, having put everything into the match, to get the three points about install themselves as Champions elect. It was a deserved win at just the right time.

Mathematically United still need a point – though it seems a mere formality that in a fortnight’s time, the club will be celebrating an historical afternoon on parade at Old Trafford.

Man of the Match : Ryan Giggs

Antonio Valencia was brilliant – Wayne Rooney made the team tick – but the man of the match was surely Ryan Giggs. With an assist, and an assist to an assist, Giggs was sensational as United dominated Chelsea in the first half and was simply a class above when the team needed experience in the second half. It was fitting that Giggs should be the best player, but it’s not through sentiment that this is said. He was simply the best player on the pitch on the day – and on a day when United all but sealed the league, nothing else could have been more befitting.

Ratings : van der Sar 8, Fabio 7 (Smalling), Ferdinand 7, Vidic 8, O’Shea 7 (Evans 8), Valencia 9, Carrick 8, *Giggs 9, Park 8, Rooney 8, Chicharito 8

West Ham United 3 - 1 Liverpool

West Ham United completed a stunning 3-1 victory against Liverpool, with captain Scott Parker opening the scoring to lift the Premier League strugglers off the foot of the table. Goals from Demba Ba and Carlton Cole sandwiched a Glen Johnson strike as the East Londoners grabbed a vital three points in the battle against relegation.

Liverpool were set-up in the same 5-3-2 formation that served them so well in the victory over Chelsea earlier on in the month, with Raul Meireles handed an attacking role in midfield, as he looked to add to his impressive tally of five goals and an assist in his previous six matches.

Hitzlsperger gave Liverpool an early reminder of why he is nicknamed, 'Der Hammer' in Germany, as he struck a 35-yard volley at goal in only the third minute. It went straight into Pepe Reina’s arms, but let the Anfield club know what they could be in for later in the afternoon.

Five minutes later Meireles went close, running onto a Steven Gerrard lofted through ball, but he made a mess of the header, putting it high and wide from the edge of the penalty area. In truth, it would have taken a Herculean effort to score, but showed some of Liverpool’s early attacking intent.

Martin Kelly, who looked so impressive against Sparta Prague in midweek, was given license to attack along with Glen Johnson, and his devilish cross could have given Liverpool the lead in the 13th minute, with a West Ham defender sliding in to clear behind for a corner.

It was West Ham who took the lead in the 21st minute, through their captain and talisman, Scott Parker, with an outrageous finish.

The Hammers midfielder exchanged some slick passing and a quick one-two with Hitzlsperger before poking home a finish from the edge of the area, a shot that curved in the area and brushed the inside of the post before nestling in the net.

West Ham were immediately pressing for a second, but almost came unstuck as Liverpool counter-attacked through Luis Suarez and Dirk Kuyt, with the Dutchman firing in an effort from range that could only find the outside netting.

With that scare avoided, West Ham almost doubled their lead, with Frederic Piquionne putting a ball across the face of goal that Demba Ba just couldn’t get on the end of. If he had made any contact it would have been a certain goal.

The Hammers certainly weren’t holding back in their tackles, seemingly keen to test out Liverpool’s new recruit Suarez, with the Uruguayan twice going down under challenges from James Tomkins, and he wasn’t the only one, with Raul Meireles seemingly buckling under a challenge from Parker midway through the first half, and he was replaced by David Ngog after only five minutes in the second.

Liverpool were forced into a tactical change only minutes before half-time, as the promising Kelly had to leave the pitch with a serious-looking hamstring injury.

And barely a minute after he had been replaced by former West Ham favourite Joe Cole, the Hammers were 2-0 up thanks to some good old-fashioned route one football.

Hammer blow | Parker celebrates opening the scoring at Upton Park

It was a long ball from Robert Green to Demba Ba, who flicked the ball wide to an on-rushing Mark Noble. Perhaps because of the tactical switch, Liverpool looked all over the place at the back, with Jamie Carragher forced wide to close down Noble. He chipped a ball back into the box, slightly behind the defenders to Ba, who flung himself at the ball, and his header flew into the top corner, with Reina helpless.

It was just reward for West Ham, who had dominated the match. Hitzlsperger in particular was playing well, getting forward to attack while nullifying the threat posed by Gerrard in defence.

Ba almost put the result beyond doubt after seven minutes of the second half, blazing a shot along the ground just wide of Reina’s post, with the Spanish keeper nowhere near stopping it.

Hitzlsperger was again involved, pushing on from midfield to take a shot which deflected wide. From his corner, Piquionne was again close to getting a third, with a combination of Liverpool defenders blocking his header.

To say West Ham were dominating the second half would be a grand understatement. Liverpool were barely involved. The Hammers would just have to be wary that none of their missed chances would come back to haunt them.

The East London club were given a vital reminder of how easily things can change when, from nothing, Gerrard’s flicked pass to Suarez turned into a chance as the Uruguayan easily rolled past Tomkins and shoot for the top corner, only for Green to match his effort with a fantastic save, pushing the ball out for a corner.

They were still content to attack Liverpool’s defence though, with the Danish full-back Lars Jacobsen allowed to advance too far, before striking his shot just over.

Piquionne then missed perhaps the easiest chance of the match. He didn’t connect properly with a free header only six yards out, and screwed his effort wide. It would have been interesting if the ball had gone in, however, as Liverpool felt aggrieved about the corner.

Noble went to take a short corner, but didn’t make proper connection with the ball, causing it to roll only slightly. He then placed the ball back in the quadrant with his hand, making Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva complain to the referee, who ignored his protests.

Certainly, if the ball had gone in, there would have been plenty of complaints from Liverpool, and an interesting topic for debate.

Liverpool began pressing for a goal and on the 70th minute Gerrard came close with a dipping volley that Green did well to push over.

Green was producing the sort of form that led to his England call-up before his howler against the USA in the World Cup, and genuinely didn’t look like he would be beaten.

Gerrard earned himself a place in the Hammers fans’ bad books as he appeared to dive under a Piquionne challenge in the area. However, he immediately acknowledged that it wasn’t a foul, as did the referee who told him to get up.

The game was turned on its head in the 84th minute, as Liverpool finally found a way through the West Ham defence. Luis Suarez superbly turned Parker before slamming a pass across the face of goal for former West Ham player Glen Johnson to turn in from three yards out.

However, substitute Carlton Cole made sure of the win in the 91st minute, as he won a high ball before battling off Martin Skrtel. After a step-over to get past a tired Carragher, his left footed shot was hit with venom, and wrong-footed Reina to find his near corner.

Reina will be disappointed at being beaten by such a simple shot, but the Hammers fans didn’t care, their hopes of survival having been given a huge lift by this vital victory.
