Chelsea out, Drogba sent-off on special night for Mourinho

Samuel Eto'o was the hero as Inter Milan stunned Chelsea at home 1-0 to hand coach Jose Mourinho revenge over his old team. Mourinho's Inter bundled Chelsea out of the Champions League 3-1 on aggregate thanks to Eto'o's second-half strike and a midfield masterclass from Wesley Sneijder.

Rather than 'parking the bus' in front of goal, as he once accused a Premier League manager of doing against his old club, Mourinho chose Samuel Eto'o, Diego Milito and Goran Pandev as Inter looked to protect a 2-1 lead from the first leg.

The crucial blow came with 12 minutes to go and inevitably it was Sneijder who provided the chance.

His ball over the top went over Ivanovic's head and landed perfectly for Eto'o, who took the pass in his stride and curled his finish around Turnbull with the outside of his boot.

With three minutes remaining Didier Drogba was given a red card after a clash that had Thiago Motta clutching his shin and Inter players accusing the Chelsea striker of kicking out.

Mourinho waited inside the tunnel in stoppage time and when the final whistle blew he did not reappear.
