London: Manchester United’s stunning comeback from three goals down to salvage a draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday has been termed as a massive effort by their manager Alex Ferguson.

"It`s not easy coming back from three-nil down and it was a massive effort from our players. It was a great game for the neutral watching. It was fantastic and Chelsea played a great part in it too. Although I thought we were the better team, Chelsea made it an interesting game for anyone watching the match. And I was pleased with my players." Alex was quoted as saying in United’s official website.

The Scot, however, was left with a mixed feeling after the match since he believed that keeping apart the heroics United should have won the clash on account of their being a better side.

"I think it’s two dropped points because we played so well," said Sir Alex. "Apart from a period of ten minutes after half-time when we got off to a terrible start and lost two goals, I thought we were the far better team.’ he said.
