Chelsea v. Manchester United II
Wayne Rooney's 24th-minute strike ensured we beat Chelsea by the slimmest of margins. It's a victory, but a fragile one and Chelsea need only to pop one in oop north and we're back to square one. United certainly rode their luck at the end and were lucky not to concede at least one penalty. Teams are generally more fortunate when they play at home, and considering Manchester United's London fan base, this was as close to a cosy away day as you could get. Only playing Wimbledon away in the days of the Crazy Gang was more like Old Trafford on tour.
