Chelsea Vs. Manchester United, 2012 Premier League: David Luiz Scores First Chelsea Goal

There may be more than half an hour left, but it's all coming undone for Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. About five minutes after Juan Mata doubled Chelsea's lead off a stunning cross by Fernando Torres, David Luiz took his turn to get the glory of the Blues. Mata was involved again, sending a free kick into the area writhing with players. United left the near post uncovered, letting David Luiz rise up above and get his head on the ball. It seemed to ricochet off Rio Ferdinand, leaving David De Gea with no chance.

It's up to 3-0 now, but it's tough to believe there won't be a goal scored by the visitors. United are stunned, sure, but with Chelsea's tendency to be a bit, shall we say, lackadaisical at the back, it's not unfathomable that the Red Devils will find a way back into the game. But will it be enough to get them the three points they so desperately need?
