Manchester United thrashed Chelsea 4-1 on Thursday to ensure a top-four position in the Premier League, and they will be back in action in the Champions League the next season.
In order to formally put an end to Liverpool’s waning chances of qualifying for Europe’s top club competition, United needed a point from their final two league games. Casemiro, Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes (penalty), and Marcus Rashford scored for United.
United won the Carabao Cup in February and will be attempting to complete a domestic double when they take on rival Manchester City in the FA Cup final on June 3. United will end their Premier League season on Sunday by visiting 10th-place Fulham.
In the 89th minute, Joao Felix gave the visitors a chance to tie the score, but Chelsea was already destined to finish in the bottom half of the Premier League for the first time since 1995–1996.
