The better team won

Manchester United made it into of the semi-finals of the Champions League last night after beating Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford, and going through 3-1 on aggregate.

United took the lead just before half-time thanks to Hernandez, but Chelsea had the Reds rocking when Drogba equalised to make it 1-1 on the night. However, only a few seconds later Ji-Sung Park scored to put the tie to bed. The Blues weren’t helped by the mystifying sending off of Ramires, but Alex Ferguson was convinced that the best side won.

‘We've beaten a very, very good Chelsea side,’ the United manager said. ‘Chelsea played their part, and credit to them, but I thought we were the better side and deserved to win.

‘We've hit our form. You saw that in the second half against West Ham (where United came back from 2-0 down to win 4-2), the performance at Chelsea last week and the performance tonight. This is a great moment for us.’
