Man United 2, Chelsea 1: United advance to CL semifinals

Tuesday April 12th, 2011

Wayne Rooney's goal at Stamford Bridge last week gives Manchester United the advantage going in to the second leg at Old Trafford, but Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has been thumbing through Jose's Big Book of Managerial Mind Games in an attempt to level the playing field.

"A win there is not easy, but it's good for us to think that last year when we needed to win there, we won," Ancelotti mused, pushing his arched eyebrow up to sci-fi villain heights as he recalled the 2-1 victory that helped Chelsea to last year's Double. "If the referee hadn't made a terrible mistake [failing to award a penalty for Patrice Evra's foul on Ramires in stoppage time] we would have drawn [the first leg]."
