Retro Recap: Morientes Sinks Blues; Chelsea vs Monaco, May 5th 2004

Under the watchful eyes of Jose Mourinho did Chelsea host Monaco for the return leg of their Champions League semi-final encounter. Porto had booked their place in the final just the day before.

What's more, Roy Keane was sent off in the closing moments for stamping on Porto's goalie Vitor Baia. Heartbreak for the United faithful, though, arrived only late. Like, share, subscribe!
