Man Utd's Tevez loved winding up Chelsea

Manchester United ace Carlos Tevez loved sticking it to bitter rivals Chelsea in Moscow on Wednesday.

Tevez was at the centre of the flare-up which saw Didier Drogba get sent off for slapping Nemanja Vidic.

Blues skipper John Terry could also be in hot water for allegedly spitting at the Argentinian.

And Tevez feels Chelsea's players were still seething at losing out in the title race to their rivals.

He said: "There is bad blood with Chelsea and it was evident in the game. I like matches like this. I don't get scared when games heat up. It's quite the opposite.

"All season there was resentment with Chelsea. And we knew there was going to be more of it because we had won the Premiership. We knew they were going to react at some point because they wanted revenge.

"All we had to do was stay calm. At the end what was happening was I was encouraging my team-mates to keep up the pressure. They took it badly, but my intention was to push us on to keep on pressurising them."
