Chelsea vs Manchester United , 2010/11
First Leg – Chelsea 0-1 Manchester United
Billed as the Blues’ chance to draw a line under their defeat by United in the 2008 final in Moscow, a cagey first leg was decided by Rooney’s well-taken strike in the 24th minute after great work by the evergreen Ryan Giggs.
Neither side were able to hit their usual stride in the early stages, with time and space on the ball coming at an exorbitant premium and big-match nerves evident in the number of stray passes.
Second Leg – Manchester United 2-1 Chelsea
Javier Hernández doubled United’s aggregate advantage on the stroke of half-time and although Chelsea shrugged off Ramires’ sending-off with a 77th-minute equaliser from substitute Didier Drogba, Park Ji-Sung extinguished the London club’s flickering hopes within 60 seconds.
