Report & Ratings: Man United 2-0 Chelsea – 16/04/17

Man United 2-0 Chelsea

A fine display by Manchester United at Old Trafford has cut Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League to just four points, leaving the title race wide open again

United manager Jose Mourinho has suffered this season against the club where he was a three-time champion, losing 4-0 in the league at Chelsea and also going out of the FA Cup quarter-final at Stamford Bridge earlier this season.

The Portuguese was not to be denied this time as Marcus Rashford, who paired with Jesse Lingard up front, finished coolly after seven minutes and Ander Herrera saw his shot deflected in off Kurt Zouma four minutes after the break.

Zouma was a late replacement for Marcos Alonso, who picked up an injury in the warm-up, but Chelsea can offer no excuses here as they were second best throughout.

Tottenham now trail them by four points with six games to go and have the superior goal difference.
