Nothing really to add to the acres of posts that are currently being prepared on this explosive game which will be remembered for much more than the thrilling five goal shootout. United scored the opening goal in the first match so far this season where they were the underdogs to do so. They then emulated Liverpool an hour or two earlier in perpetuating the myth that 2-0 is the most dangerous lead in football and Chelsea then seemed poised to add to the debate around momentum in sport. The remainder of the match was football determined to show it's dark, ugly underbelly with red cards, poor decision making and potentially much worse taking centre stage.
