Champions League: United class shows

Champions League: United class shows. 44013.jpegSir Alex Ferguson had promised an interesting game - and a good game of football it was. However at the end of the day the class of Manchester United shone through, goals from Hernández and Park Ji-Sung sinking Chelsea; in Donetsk, Barcelona's Lionel Messi made it 6-1 on aggregate.

Manchester United went into the interval a goal ahead. John O'Shea found Ryan Giggs on the right, and the in-form Welsh international made his first assist to Javier Hernández who had only to turn the ball in at the far post. Chelsea levelled after 77', Didier Drogba drilling Michael Essien's pass under Van der Sar. Within a minute, United was 2-1 up - Giggs again providing the pass after receiving from Wayne Rooney - and  Park Ji-Sung shot past Petr Čech.
