Premier League was the place to watch a beautiful game between two teams in a battle for Barclays Premier League trophy. Manchester United and Chelsea fought bravely, but the Red Devils turned victorious with the score of 2-1.
Sir Alex Ferguson: “We could’ve scored six in the second half, but we expected a tough game and we got a tough game. We were brilliant, we got a great start but Cech made some fantastic saves. When we gave the ball away for their goal, we were a bit nervy but the fans helped us. We kept making chances and Rooney could’ve scored six today.”
Carlo Ancelotti: “In the first minute we lost the game, we started so badly. It was very difficult after that to come back and try to win. The second half was better but United played better and deserved to win. We have to accept the defeat, today United were better and in general this season they were better than us. They deserve to win title, they will win and we have to try to maintain second place.”
