Chelsea were led by Antonio Conte while Jose Mourinho was still in charge of Manchester United.

After Ander Herrera was shown a red card Chelsea dominated the game but it ended goalless at the halftime break.

The breakthrough came from an unlikely source defensive midfielder Ngolo Kante with a long-range strike in the 51st minute.
