Chelsea's lead over their closest rivals Tottenham remains at just 4 points, after suffering a 2-nil loss at the hands of Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils started the match with full force on Sunday and went ahead after just 7 minutes through Marcus Rashford, who received a great pass from Ander Herrera and sent a cool finish beyond the keeper to make it 1-0.

Manchester United's English midfielder Ashley Young (L) vies with Chelsea's French midfielder N'Golo Kante (2L) during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on April 16, 2017. 

Herrera himself doubled the hosts advantage 4 minutes after the break, with a first-time-shot at goal which deflected off Zouma and went past the keeper and into the net to make it 2-nil and hand Jose Mourinho’s side the victory.
