Rashford & Herrera On Target As Man Utd Outclass Chelsea

English Premier League 

Result: Manchester United 2-0 Chelsea 

Date: 16 April 2017

Venue: Old Trafford

Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera were on target as Manchester United secured an impressive 2-0 win over Premier League leaders, Chelsea.

United broke the deadlock after seven minutes as Ander Herrera played Marucs Rashford through on goal and the striker calmly slotted into the far corner, 1-0.

The home side enjoyed most of the possession in the opening exchanges, as United did well to silence the Chelsea attackers in the opening 20 minutes.

Chelsea, meanwhile, struggled to carve out any chances in the final third, with Diego Costa being marked out of the clash by Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo.

Neither side could carve out another clear-cut chance as United went into the break leading.

However, the Red Devils doubled their lead shortly after the break as Herrera found the back of the net via a deflection from the edge of the box.

Antonio Conte threw on Cesc Fabregas and Willian, while the home side introduced Micheal Carrick for Jesse Lingard after the hour mark.

The Blues enjoyed most of the possession as they looked for a way back into the encounter, although they struggled to carve out any chances. 

Conte's charges endured a difficult day, as they failed to register a single effort on target throughout the 90 minutes.

Chelsea are now only four points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, while United keep their top four aspirations alive.
