Demba ba ended Manchester United‘s chance of a dream double with an emphatic finish yesterday at Stamford Bridge. On what had been billed to be the game of the season, Chelsea came away victors, and to be fair only finished off what they should have done back at Old Trafford a few weeks ago. United lacked composure, but it still took a save of the highest quality from the Chelsea stopper to deny United an equalizer. but the stats don’t lie Chelsea were the better team and deserved to be back at Wembley where they have a played seven, won seven record. the semi final tie against Manchester city should be a great game and the victors will be favourites to go on and lift the trophy.
As usual it was the brilliance of Juan Mata that set up the finish, this season he has been arguably one of the best players in the Premier League and it was his delightfull ball that cut out the united defence for Ba to guide it home with an outstretched leg. Rafa Benitez knows he will face a tough test at Wembley agaist City, as this will be the only opportunity for the Manchester club to pick up silverware this season.
