Chelsea will be Premier League champions if they win their next two matches after her victory on Saturday ended Manchester United’s six-match winning league run.
The win ensured the Blues extend their lead on the table to ten points with an outstanding match at hand.
United dominated the major parts of the encounter but were unfortunate not to hit the target.
Wayne Rooney bent a shot into the side netting from 18 yards as United controlled the early stages.
The hosts were ahead with their first shot on target when Eden Hazard latched onto Oscar’s back heel to slide home in the 38th minute.
Hazard struck the bar before Radamel Falcao hit the post and Ander Herrera was booked for a late dive in the area.
United skipper Wayne Rooney felt the defeat was not a true reflection of the game as his side had the upper hand over the table toppers.
“We dominated the game, had the best chances and we are a team that is improving. It was always going to be tough to win the title and today confirmed that.
“I am proud of the team that we dominated the game so much. It is probably the best performance of the season against the champions in waiting.
“We have had a lot of injuries. I have said before, if the manager wants me to play midfield I have no problem in doing that.”
