Juan Mata and Anthony Martial scored the goal which maintained the top-four pursuit of the club.
Red Devils crowned champions 13 times since the inception of the Premier League in 1992.
Manchester United moved above Liverpool into fifth place with 48 points.
“In the first half the football was fabulous. The fans got behind the team just before we scored the goal because we were phenomenal,” United manager Jose Mourinho was quoted by BBC as saying.
