United sink 10-man Chelsea

Manchester United won its fourth straight Premiership game on Sunday by downing a 10-man Chelsea side 2-0 at Old Trafford.

John Obi Mikel was sent off in the 33rd minute for a hard challenge on United defender Patrice Evra, changing the course of the match. It was a harsh decision by the referee, but it put Chelsea down a man.

This allowed Carlos Tevez to score his first goal for the Red Devils right before halftime, and substitute Louis Saha added a penalty kick goal in the 88th minute to preserve the win.
