Werder Bremen have claimed an important scalp in the Champions league over Premiership Kings Chelsea.
In a match similar to United's defeat last night Bremen turned the screws by securing a 1 - 0 win over the Premiership Champions.
A single goal from Per Mertersacker's head secured them a powerful lead going into half time.
