Manchester United sealed their place in the Premier League’s top four and returned to the Champions League after beating Chelsea 4-1 at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
The win moved United ahead of Newcastle United into third place, six points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool, who now know they will be in the UEFA Europa League for the 2023/24 season.
Going into the game against Chelsea, United needed just one point to seal a top-four finish.
United finished 2-0 up in the first half thanks to goals from Casemiro and Anthony Martial in the 6th and 45+5 minutes respectively.
United went 3-0 up in the 73rd minute after Bruno Fernandes converted from the penalty spot and Marcus Rashford added a fourth in the 78th minute.
Then in the 89th minute, on-loan striker Joao Felix scored a consolation goal for the Blues.
Chelsea remain in 12th with 43 points and are guaranteed to end the season with their lowest ever Premier League points.
Extending their unbeaten run against Chelsea to a club-record 11 Premier League matches, United now have 72 points and will confirm third place with a home win over Fulham on the final day.
