Man United reel Chelsea in on day of controversy
LONDON (AFP) - Manchester United closed to within a point of leaders Chelsea with a dramatic 3-2 victory at Stamford Bridge on Sunday at the end of a day packed with controversy in the Premier League.
Javier Hernandez scored a 75th-minute winner for United, after Chelsea had fought back from two goals down to equalise and then seen both Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres sent off.
Torres saw red after being shown a second yellow card for diving following a challenge by United centre-back Jonny Evans, while Hernandez's winner was allowed to stand despite the Mexican being in an offside position.
"We've never got breaks down here and had some terrible decisions against us in the last few years, but today we have got a little break for the goal - Chicharito may have been offside," said United coach Alex Ferguson.
