The Blues picked up the game’s lone goal when N'Golo Kante scored in the second half from beyond the penalty area.

Red Devils players were infuriated with referee Michael Oliver in the 35th minute when the head official sent off Ander Herrera for his second yellow card in the opening stanza.

The following statement was released by the FA on Friday:

“Manchester United have been fined £20,000 ($24,784) after the club admitted an FA misconduct charge and accepted the standard penalty,” the statement said.

“It relates to a breach of FA Rule E20 (a) for failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in or around the 35th minute of their FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea on Monday 13 March 2017.”
