United started the game with more aggression and Chelsea looked deviod of ideas as Fellaini, Herrera and Pogba dominated Chelsea's Nemanja Matic and N'Golo Kante in the middle of the park.
United opened the scoring in the 7th minute when Ander Herrera picked up a lose pass in the center of the park, drove towards goal unmarked and fed Marcus Rashford who swept past Asmir Begovic in goal.
Herrera doubled the lead five minutes after half time, picking up a wasted pass by Kante to curl a shot from the left which Begovic could do nothing about.
That was how the game remained despite the best efforts of substitute Cesc Fabregas to help Chelsea get a goal.
