Beckham at the Bridge…

but why was United legend sitting with Chelsea fans in Abramovich’s box?

Manchester United legend David Beckham was at Stamford Bridge to watch his former team, but instead of sitting alongside ex-manager Alex Ferguson in the stands he was being entertained by Roman Abramovich in the Chelsea owner’s box.

The former United winger, accompanied by his eldest son Brooklyn, was seen pulling a pout that even Posh would be proud of after Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o scored the first of his three goals – while Blues fans around him celebrated wildly.

One of the most enthusiastic Chelsea fans watching the game was another sporting celebrity, England cricket batsmen Kevin Pietersen, who rose from his seat with his arm raised after the first goal in Chelsea’s 3-1 victory.

As revealed by Sportsmail, the controversial cricketer appears to have played his last Test match for England after continuing unrest with coach Andy Flower and captain Alastair Cook.

Elsewhere, Ferguson was in the stands again – no doubt watching David Moyes continue to struggle in his shadow after succeeding him at Old Trafford.

However, instead of trading tactics with his old assistant Phil Neal, Fergie was left to discuss the finer points of the game with former Simply Red singer and United fan Mick Hucknell.

Chelsea’s comprehensive win leaves them within touching distance of Premier League leaders Arsenal , while United languish in seventh place with six points separating them from the Champions League places.
