Manchester United Vs. Chelsea FC, UEFA Champions League: Chicharito Scores, And This One Counts

Game, set, and match? Well, not quite, but it now seems highly unlikely that Chelsea FC will turn their deficit into a winning margin at this point. Manchester United have scored a goal just before the stroke of halftime through Javier Hernandez, the little pea who just can't stop scoring. Chicharito has been an incredible buy for Alex Ferguson, scoring well into the double digits of goals. Meanwhile, Fernando Torres is still scoreless for Chelsea.

Ryan Giggs was the man who provided the assist, and it was a brilliant one. The Welsh Wizard, now Giggs the Grey, is looking as quick and youthful as ever. Following a set piece, Wayne Rooney played a switch from the left side of the pitch to the right, finding Giggs on the wing. He played a nice one-two combination with John O'Shea, eventually beating his man and putting a low ball on a plate for Chicharito across the face of goal. All Hernandez had to do was tap it in, and he did just that. United now lead 2-0 on aggregate and Chelsea will struggle to find a way back into the tie.
