Man Utd ends Chelsea's unbeated run!

Monday, November 07, 2005

Chelsea's 40-match unbeaten run in the Premiership was ended when Man Utd turned around from it's worst-ever week to win this sparkling Old Trafford encounter.

Darren Fletcher scored the only goal of the game just after the half hour from a glorious move. It all started with Wes Brown finding Rooney, whose delicate pass went to Scholes. The former England man knocked the ball to Ronaldo on the left and his pinpoint cross to the far post was met by Fletcher.

Stretching his neck, the Scotland midfielder met the ball perfectly and sent his header from the edge of the six-yard box back towards the top corner of the net. Chelsea captain John Terry tried to clear at the far post but the header went over him and into the roof of the net.

Chelsea's only real chance of the first half came when Didier Drogba raced on to Frank Lampard's superb 60-yard pass, only to chip weakly at United goalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar.

But, as the game wore on, the champions, whose last Premiership defeat was 1-0 at Manchester City just over a year ago, piled on the pressure.

However, it was a little to late for Chelsea and it was 1-0 to Man Utd.
