Jose Mourinho responded by throwing on Anthony Martial for Jesse Lingard for the final 15 minutes as the visitors looked to restore their two-goal cushion.
 
The clash ended on a sour note for the Red Devils as Nemanja Matic was sent off for a second bookable offence, but his side managed to hold on for victory.
