Manchester United Vs. Chelsea FC, UEFA Champions League: Nicolas Anelka Comes Off For Solomon Kalou

Though it wasn't the Yossi Benayoun introduction that we called for, Carlo Ancelotti has made a positive and interesting change, bringing on Solomon Kalou for Nicolas Anelka. Anelka hasn't had a particularly good game for Chelsea, and it was obvious shortly into the second half that his minutes on the pitch were numbered. Solomon Kalou is well noted for being either a poor finisher or terribly unlucky, depending on who you ask, but he's also extremely fast, tricky, and technically sound.

Regardless of how good of a change Kalou is, Chelsea still have a very tough task in front of them. There's not a lot of reason to believe that Chelsea are going to be able to score twice. Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, and Edwin van der Sar have all been brilliant, as always. With a healthy team in place, Manchester United simply aren't going to allow Chelsea to score two goals in 30 minutes at Old Trafford.
