Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United: Hazard moves Mourinho's men closer to the Premier League title

The Blues extend their lead at the top of the table to double figures after Eden Hazard scores the only goal of the game to down United at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea edged closer to the Premier League title with a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge after Eden Hazard first-half goal.

The Blues’ win extends their advantage over second placed Arsenal to 10 points with both sides now having played 32 matches.

Manchester United failed to capitalise on their sustained first-half pressure and Chelsea made them pay as Hazard collected Oscar’s smart back-heel before slotting under David De Gea at the near post.

The Belgian went on to strike the crossbar from an acute angle in the second period before Louis Van Gaal’s men began to further impose themselves on the match.

Radamel Falcao crashed a shot against the woodwork from the left of the box with 15 minutes to play but United were unable to break down a resilient Chelsea defence.

Ander Herrera was booked for diving in the box in stoppage time as Jose Mourinho’s side take a big step towards their first league title since 2010.
