ronaldo inter v manchester united Manchester United  cruised to the Champions League final as they beat Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates.devastating performance from Manchester United and particularly Cristiano Ronaldo means they are within one match of becoming the first team to defend the Champions League title.Arsenal must face up to another trophy-less season their fourth in a row. They played well for seven minutes until United scored, and they pretty much rolled over after that.

Ji-Sung Park’s eighth minute opener and Cristiano Ronaldo’s 11th-minute great free kick put the tie almost beyond the home side in the opening few minutes.Ronaldo’s second just after the hour mark put things beyond doubt in a great breakaway counter move.It afforded Ferguson the luxury of being able to remove Rooney and Patrice Evra, who would have missed the final had they had picked up another yellow card

There was some disappointment for United when Darren Fletcher was shown a straight red card on 75 minutes despite appearing to have won the ball from Cesc Fabregas with a fair tackle.

A penalty was awarded and Robin van Persie converted his chance emphatically, but there was never any chance of a fightback and United held on to claim a 4-1 aggregate success

Rooney was very happy with result He told Sky Sports: “Everyone’s delighted, it was a great performance from us tonight and I think we thoroughly deserved it.

“I think we just wanted to attack at the right times, and thankfully we got the goals.

“We knew if we got one goal there would be chances to get one or two more goals, because obviously they would have to try and come forward.

“We that when we got the second goal the game was really over.”

When asked whether he would prefer to meet either Chelsea or Barcelona in the final, Rooney replied: “I think we are capable of beating any of them. We know that they will be difficult games whoever it is.”

No appeal over Fletcher red

Manchester United’s hopes of overturning midfielder Darren Fletcher’s red card have been dashed.

Uefa have confirmed that a protest against a sending off would only be allowed on the basis on mistaken identity – and not on whether the referee had been too harsh.

The decision means Fletcher will be suspended for the Champions League final in Rome later this month.
