Juan Mata's dramatic late goal earned the Blues an unlikely three points in their quest for Champions League football while United failed to score on home soil for the first time in 67 matches.

However, there was an ill-tempered conclusion to the game, with United defender Rafael da Silva shown a straight red card for hacking at the ankles of countryman David Luiz, who appeared to smile while lying on the ground.

The Spaniard refused to discuss the incident saying he did not see what happened and was keen to look forward to Wednesday's encounter.

"I didn't see the incident or replays," Benitez told Sky Sports. "I try to enjoy when we win, it's a situation you can see 20 times on TV, but it won't change anything.

"For us very game is massive now. This one obviously against the champions was tough, but we did really well.

"We have to beat Tottenham next, which will not be easy on Wednesday and we still have Aston Villa and Everton, so we must carry on, concentrate on the next game.

"Today was a difficult game in terms of the intensity and the tempo. You can see that we didn't have the tempo and they didn't have the tempo, but I think that we were in control."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
