Chelsea Vs. Manchester United, 2012 Premier League: Chelsea Take The Lead Through A Jonny Evans Own Goal

And we have our first goal in Chelsea - Manchester United, and the award goes to...Jonny Evans! Unfortunately for the United defender, it landed in the back of David De Gea's net. Danny Sturridge showed some fancy feet to Patrice Evra, making him look absolutely foolish as he went the wrong way, allowing the Chelsea attacker a chance from a tight angle. De Gea got a foot on it, but it bounced off the chest of Evans and back past the United keeper.

Suddenly the game has come a bit more alive. Sturridge very nearly scored his own minutes later, but De Gea managed to push it away that time, and Fernando Torres's shot wasn't quite as threatening. On the other side, Ashley Young is starting to make Branislav Ivanovic a bit nervous with his runs into the area, while Petr Cech had to react quickly to deny Danny Welbeck a goal.
