Crucial win delights Di Matteo

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo hailed the "crucial" Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk after Victor Moses scored a last-gasp header to secure a 3-2 win.

Moses climbed off the bench in the 80th minute and snatched victory in the last action of the match after Willian had cancelled out strikes from Fernando Torres and Oscar.

The injury-time winner lifted the defending champions level with the Ukrainian visitors at the top of Group E.

"It was crucial for us to win this home game," said Di Matteo. "It was obviously going to be a tough game that would be decided by the little details.

"They are a very good side and they showed tonight how good they are. It will probably go down to the last game and probably the last kick.

"We knew the kind of pressure we were under and it was must-win for us. We didn't want to expose ourselves too much. We knew we could have scored a goal with the last kick and that is what happened.

"We knew we needed to score a goal probably from a set play. It was good Victor got on the end of it.

"I think in the first half we put them under pressure and we managed go ahead with good pressure.

"Then in the second half we tried but they were a good side. We probably didn't have many chances as normal, but sometimes need a goal like that."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
