Slowly But Sure

Mr Budi Raharjo will not like the result of the matches that has just finished. Manchester United beat Chelsea 2-0 on their home, Old Trafford. Even though i didn't see it live (i don't have Astro or any TV Cable service), i saw the semi live on LiveScore. Other source i use is Soccernet. They gave me this statistics:
                   Man Utd        Chelsea
Shots (on Goal) 18(9) 4(1)
Fouls 10 15
Corner Kicks 10 1
Offsides 0 0
Time of Possession 57% 43%
Yellow Cards 2 2
Red Cards 0 1
Saves 0 6

Looking at this statistics proves that Chelsea is still under pressure after the shocking news that their coach, Jose Mourinho went out of Chelsea just few days before the big match against Manchester United. Most of their new players didn't agree with the new coach, resulting a big loss. I have never seen Chelsea's possession under 50% (they mostly dominate the game). The others statistics were very low (corner, shots), but they got 2 yellow cards and 1 red card. Ohh my....

There are also some rumors that the players will do some exodus following their ex-coach, but Peter Kenyon has stated that it will not happened. Another problem is the qualification for their new coach, Grant.

Meanwhile, MU is starting to crawl to the top three after having a bad start on this season's league. It's slow, but they are working on it and they are on track again.
