Chelsea 2-1 Man. United United, gunning for a 19th league title, and Chelsea,reigning English champions, produced a barnstorming, end-to-end game of football that left no one disappointed. Manchester United took the lead at the 29th minute with a goal by striker Wayne Rooney. 8 minutes after half time, Frank Lampard equalized for Chelsea on the 53rd minute. Unbelievably reserve, David Luiz scored to come back for Chelseaon the 70th minute. Chelsea’svictory on Tuesday night was something of a shock given the Blues’ recent form, although just as big a surprise was Sir Alex’s team.
Birmingham City 2-1 Arsenal A last-gasp defensive mix-up put paid to Arsenal’s hopes of Carling Cup glory at Wembley on Sunday. With one minute left on the clock, a long free-kick from Ben Foster was flicked on by Nikola Zigic and seemed destined for the arms of Wojciech Szczesny. But the keeper, distracted by Laurent Koscielny’s attempt to clear, fumbled the ball into Obafemi Martins’ path. The Nigerian couldn't believe his luck and rolled it into an empty net. It was heartbreaking for an Arsenal side that had looked the stronger as a gruelling Final headed towards extra time. Zigic had headed Birmingham in front in the first half but Robin van Persie equalised with a fine volley. All that mattered for nothing in the end. Now Arsenal must pick themselves up and stay on track in three other competitions.
