Man Utd secure top-four finish with an emphatic win over Chelsea

Manchester United secured a top-four finish in the EPL and a place in next season’s Champions League, courtesy of a well-earned 4-1 victory over Frank Lampard’s mid-table Chelsea.

First-half goals from Casemiro and Anthony Martial gave the hosts a 2-0 lead at the break. 

After the break, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford added to the deficit, before Joao Felix grabbed a consolation goal for the visitors late on. 

The result means Erik Ten Hag’s side is now sure of playing Champions League football, much to the dismay of Liverpool will participate in the Europa League, having missed out on a Champions League spot.

On the other, the defeat is Chelsea’s eighth in 10 games since Frank Lampard returned as caretaker manager, and the Blue’s 22nd in all competitions in an extremely shambolic season for the London club, their worst in almost two years.
