But there's a strong argument to be made that Jose Mourinho's men should have gone down to nine men in the second half.
Shortly after N'Golo Kante's opener, Marcos Rojo appeared to blatantly stamp on Eden Hazard's chest after fouling the Belgian down the right channel.
Rojo's actions were worthy of a red card yet, somehow, he wasn't punished by referee Michael Olivier.
Speaking after the game, Alan Shearer explained how the Argentine deserved to be sent off and banned for his stamp on Hazard.
"That is a stamp," he said while analysing the incident. "It wouldn't surprise me at all [if he was banned]. He should have been sent off for that."
However, much to everyone's outrage, the FA have decided to not take action against Rojo despite giving Tyrone Mings a five-game ban for a similar stamp on Zlatan Ibrahimovic recently.
Just to refresh your memory, here's a video of the incident involving Rojo and Hazard.
ROJO'S STAMP ON HAZARD
How has he got away from that one? Nothing about Rojo's jump over Hazard was natural and it's quite bewildering how he's been let off the hook.
But there's even more reason to be frustrated. According to Sky Sports (see below), Oliver has admitted to seeing Rojo's stamp on Hazard but decided not to send him off.
Outrageous. How blatant does a stamp need to be for someone to be shown a red card?
Oliver has since been destroyed on Twitter for not dismissing Rojo, with football fans claiming HE should be charged by the FA instead.
This isn't the first time Rojo has escaped punishment for a reckless challenge.
Back in December, the 26-year-old was guilty of two-footed challenges on Everton's Idrissa Gueye and Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha but wasn't sent off on either occasion.
There lies a big issue in the Premier League at the moment. Too many dangerous challenges are going unpunished and, if the FA don't clamp down, more injuries will be inflicted.
