United 1 Chelsea 1, 6-5 to the Reds on pens!

I missed the Barca 99 final due to a nasty exam scheduled for the next morning and have been desperate to see United get to another ever since.

No doubt the players walking onto the pitch against West Ham had considered the pressure and the possibility of not winning, not just this game but the next ones too, and how they would react would be a huge test.
