Chelsea started well but found themselves two goals down at the break and more questions will be asked of Italian coach Maurizio Sarri's position following the loss.

United's honeymoon period was said to be over under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they lost to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last week -- their first loss since Jose Mourinho was sacked -- but they bounced back at Stamford Bridge on Monday. 

Ander Herrera opened the scoring in the first half, turning home past Kepa to give the visitors the lead. 

Pogba then doubled United's lead before the break, heading home from inside the box after starting a move which also featured the impressive Marcus Rashford. 

Chelsea had a couple of chances in the second period -- mainly through Eden Hazard -- but United eased into the last eight. 

They will meet Wolves for a place in the semifinal, while rivals Manchester City will travel to Championship side Swansea City.
