Man United have blown the title race wide open after dominating Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The 2-0 scoreline flattered the visitors as Jose Mourinho's side enacted a little revenge for their two defeats to the London side earlier in the season.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring early on as United took charge of the match from the start. Ander Herrera man-marked Eden Hazard throughout while Diego Costa appeared more interested in petty disputes with opposing defenders then trying to score.

United went into the break with their 1-0 advantage intact with Chelsea rarely threatening an equaliser. 

Bizarrely, Chelsea continued in the same vein in the second half and it wasn't long before United doubled their lead through Ander Herrera.

The league leaders never looked like getting back into the match and the gap at the top of the Premier League is four points with six matches remaining. 

Meanwhile, Liverpool consolidated their place in the top four after a 1-0 win over West Brom at The Hawthorns.

The first half was a fairly tame affair with only a few long range shots to keep the crowd entertained before Firmino scored in the dying moments.

The Brazilian capitalised from a flick on from Lucas to sneak in at the back post and give Jurgen Klopp's side the lead. 

The away side held on to their lead in a drab second half and the match only livened up in added time as West Brom desperately pushed for an equaliser.

Goalkeeper Ben Foster went forward for a corner only for Liverpool to break. Moreno had the chance to seal the points but missed an open goal from just inside the West Brom half.

Liverpool held on to claim a valuable three points and move back into third in the league table.
