    Most useless statistic of the night

    The total of Chelsea's starting eleven shirt numbers was 221 and the reserves 144. The total of Man U's starting eleven shirt numbers was 231 and the reserves 48. This shows that on the official Finkelbum/Motson ranking both teams started with more of a second eleven than a first eleven, but United were scared enough to have half their first team on the bench.

    Only one player's shirt number changed during the evening.

    Thought you'd like to know.
