Manchester United kept their top four hopes alive as goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan inspired the Red Devils to a 3-0 win over Sunderland.
Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian returned to the line up, while Sergio Romero replaced David de Gea.
The Red Devils saw a lot of the ball in the opening exchanges, while Sunderland looked lively on the counter attack.
United nearly went ahead after 29 minutes, but Jordan Pickford produced a fine save to keep out Jesse Lingard's effort from 20-yards out.
However, Jose Mourinho's men broke the deadlock a minute later as Zlatan Ibrahimovic held off his marker, before curling the ball into the far corner from the edge of the box.
Sunderland were then reduced to 10 men just before the halftime break when Sebastian Larsson was shown a straight red card for a studs up challenge on Ander Herrera.
The lead was nearly doubled after 35 minutes, but Marouane Fellaini's effort was cleared off the line, after some good work by Shaw.
Mourinho's charges doubled their lead shortly after the break, as Henrikh Mkhitaryan fired into the bottom corner from 14-yards out, 2-0.
Defore nearly pulled a goal back for Sunderland in the 65th minute, but striker's effort from 20-yards out sailed just over the crossbar.
Mourinho opted for a change after 78 minutes, as Mkhitaryan made way for Anthony Martial for the final stages of the half.
The Red Devils bagged a third goal in the 89th minute as Marcus Rashford played a neat one-two with Ibrahimovic before slotting into the bottom corner, 3-0.
Romelu Lukaku bagged a brace to inspire Everton to a 4-2 win over Leicester City at Goodison Park.
