Latest: Chelsea 1 Man Utd 0 – Blues within sight of crucial win

first_imgEden Hazard scored against the run of play to put Chelsea ahead at Stamford Bridge, where a victory would take them 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League.Hazard struck eight minutes before half-time when he finished off a fine move by firing past keeper David De Gea.After John Terry got the better of the unimpressive Radamel Falcao near the halfway line, Cesc Fabregas played the ball to Oscar and the Brazilian cleverly back-heeled in to the path of Hazard, who had drifted in from the left.Manchester United had looked the more dangerous side and almost took an early lead when Luke Shaw broke clear on the left and pulled the ball back for Wayne Rooney, who curled a shot just wide of the target.The England forward’s left-footed effort struck the stanchion behind the goal, leaving the visiting fans at the opposite of the end of the ground – and De Gea – briefly believing their team had gone ahead.United, still mathematically in with a chance of winning the title, did most of the early pressing and Paddy McNair’s shot went wide after taking a deflection off Blues skipper Terry.With Diego Costa and Loic Remy still out injured, Didier Drogba is again leading the line for Chelsea, who have Kurt Zouma in midfield and lacked fluency before scoring with their first real chance of the game – Hazard’s 18th goal of the season.His 19th almost followed 10 minutes into the second half.Drogba’s shot deflected off United defender Chris Smalling and over De Gea, and Hazard hit the bar from an awkward angle as he tried to divert the ball into the net at the far post.Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Matic, Oscar (Ramires 67), Fabregas, Hazard, Drogba. Subs: Cech, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Cuadrado, Willian, Solanke.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Tactical rampage down a Sao Paolo beach with two precious socks rolled together. The rattle of a dribbled tin can on the lanes snaking through the Buenos Aires shantytowns.Soccer is sport at its most elemental: Anything can be a ball, anywhere a field of dreams, only passion the mandatory shirt to be pulled on. In this primitiveness of soccer rests its universal appeal; in its intrinsic dance-wingers spinning away from markers,strikers pirouetting in the box, midfielders on spiralling runs-lies its aesthetic value. Holland striker Marco van Basten flew across the field with such sinewy splendour that a Dutch TV documentary compared his movements to a ballet dancer’s. When Brazilian Ronaldo burst like a weaving ox through defences, a Spanish journalist wrote: “He has the constitution of a champion boxer, but the feet of Fred Astaire.Yet greatness has one final measurement. In Yaounde, Cameroon, stands a statue of Roger Milla; in Sao Paolo the faithful explain that when Pele meets the Pope, it is Pele who is granting the audience; in Buenos Aires boys still genuflect at the altar of a factory worker’s son called Diego Maradona. It is the worship accorded to men who danced their finest on the World Cup stage.by Rohit Brijnathlast_img read more
