If the tie wasn't over when Javier Hernandez scored for Manchester United just before the stroke of halftime, it is almost certainly over now. Chelsea midfielder Ramires has been sent off in the 69th minute after picking up a second yellow card for a challenge from behind on Nani. It was a silly and rather soft challenge to get sent off for, but his tackle was clumsy and from behind, leaving the referee little choice but to show yellow.
Chelsea were finding it hard enough to score with 11 men, so there's no reason to like their chances with 10. It's almost surprising that the crowd at Old Trafford hasn't begun singing "You're getting sacked in the morning" to Carlo Ancelotti. Obviously, Chelsea aren't locked into a top four place and have to secure Champions League football next season, but if Chelsea lose tonight, and it looks like they will, Roman Abramovic may have finally lost his patience.
