Didier Drogba took a full force cleat to the chest and will be feeling the effects this week… but the one nil victory Chelsea secured over Man U at Stamford Bridge should help ease the pain. In a fiercely fought battle that featured many contested calls, and many fouls uncalled (ie. cleat to Drogba that drew a yellow card for him instead), it was a late goal by John Terry that gave the Blues the W.
That makes it twice this year that Chelsea has come out ahead against Man U, but is most important for the 5-point lead it has now created for the Pensioners at the top of the premier league, with Man U now having to share second place with Arsenal.
It was a sloppily called game by the refs and the free kick that Frank Lampard sent Terry’s way was the benefit of a suspect call. Overall, not the way you’d want to see a game won, but one that will be accepted nonetheless.
