The home team took the lead in the sixth minute with a goal by Kasemir after a pass from Eriksen.
United had bad luck after the goal, the injured Antonio had to be replaced by Rashford, but that did not prevent the “red devils” from doubling their lead in the last moments of the first half.
Cameiro sent an excellent pass to Sancho, who passed the ball to Antonio Martial, who had no difficulty beating Kepa.
Chelsea could have scored after Havertz and Gallagher’s chances, but everything collapsed in the 73rd minute when Bruno Fernandes took advantage of Fofana’s penalty.
The Frenchman did not celebrate even five minutes later when Marcus Rashford took advantage of a defensive error and beat the goalkeeper from the second.
Garnacho also missed an opportunity for United by hitting the crossbar, the consolation goal for Chelsea was the work of Joao Felix in the 89th minute, but he did not change anything.
Manchester United has 72 points, two more than fourth-placed Newcastle a round before the end of the championship, while Chelsea is 12th with 43.
