Bremen claim scalp over Chelsea

Werder Bremen have claimed an important scalp in the Champions league over Premiership Kings Chelsea. In a match similar to United's defeat last night Bremen turned the screws by securing a 1 - 0 win over the Premiership Champions. A single goal from Per Mertersacker's head secured them a powerful lead going into half time. But the decision from the referee which led to the goal from a freekick was dubious. Chelsea battled hard in the second half but were outwitted by Bremen over the ninety minutes. But it makes no different as Chelsea are still through to the knockout phases of the competition. Chelsea player Didier Drogba received an injury which has scarred Chelsea's important clash with Manchester United in the Premiership at the weekend. Rivals Barcelona must secure a win over Werder Bremen otherwise they will be eliminated from the competition. In other news, Liverpool have also qualified for the knockout stages despite several injury worries.
