Man Utd win EPL thriller

Old Trafford--
Manchester United beat Chelsea 3-1 at Old Trafford Sunday in an English Premier League top of the table clash which mixed superb attacking play with comical misses by star strikers Fernando Torres and Wayne Rooney.
Rooney slipped and ended on his backside as he ran up to convert a penalty which would have given United a 4-1 lead and his second goal of the match, but his blunder was eclipsed a few moments later by Torres.
The Spain World Cup star had made up for wasting a first half chance by pulling Chelsea back into the game with a superb piece of skill to beat David De Gea in the United goal.
After Rooney's penalty miss and with his team still trailing 3-1, Torres rounded De Gea and with an open goal at his mercy somehow contrived to send his left-foot shot wide.
Torres, who had shown more than enough to suggest he is returning to his best form, was left with his head in his hands as his side's last chance of salvaging a point had disappeared.
The misses still continued with Rooney setting up substitute Dimitar Berbatov for another cast-iron opportunity but the Bulgarian's weak effort was cleared off the line by Ashley Cole.
