Red Devils move up to seventh and within three points of fourth-placed Blues with 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge

Goals by Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire earned Manchester United a 2-0 victory at Chelsea that moved them within three points of their fourth-placed opponents.

Michy Batshuayi fired wide for the home side before Martial's glancing header from Aaron Wan-Bissaka's cross put United in front on the stroke of half-time.

Chelsea substitute Kurt Zouma had a goal disallowed after a Video Assistant Referee review ruled that Cesar Azpilicueta had fouled Brandon Williams in the build-up. 

Bruno Fernandes' free-kick hit the post before his corner was powerfully headed in by Maguire to double Man Utd's lead on 66 minutes.

Chelsea's Olivier Giroud also had a goal overturned by the VAR for offside and fellow substitute Mason Mount hit the post, before Odion Ighalo came close to a debut goal in a late cameo.

United move up to seventh with 38 points.
