English Premier League

Official: Man Utd Clinch Third Spot, Chelsea Fourth

Leicester City 0-2 Manchester United

Manchester United will return to the UEFA Champions League next season after defeating Leicester City to finish third in the Premier League.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka returned to the United line-up in place of Timothy Fosu-Mensah, while Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers re-called Marc Alrighton.

United dominated the early exchanges, but only had a headed chance from Mason Greenwood to show for their efforts in the opening 15 minutes.

Marcus Rashford should have given the Red Devils the lead in 43rd minute, but he blazed his effort over the top from 12 yards.

Moments later, Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was called upon moments later after producing a fine save to keep out Rashford's volley.

Leicester nearly took a surprise lead on the hour mark from a set-piece situation as Jamie Vardy's glancing header crashed against the upright.

United were then awarded a penalty on 68 minutes when Martial was brought down under the challenge of both Jonny Evans and Wes Morgan, which allowed Bruno Fernandes to slot home the opening goal.

The hosts threw everything forward in the latter stages of the second half, but United were well marshalled while Evans was shown a straight red card against his former side for a dangerous challenge on Scott McTominay.

Jesse Lingard sealed the win in second-half stoppage time after pouncing on Schmeichel's error to slot into an empy net with his first league goal of the season.

Chelsea 2-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers

Chelsea finished the Premier League season in fourth spot following a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday evening.

Blues manager Frank Lampard made a big call between the sticks as record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped for Willy Caballero.

The Blues carved out the first meaningful openings on 12 minutes when Mason Mount picked out Reece James, who nodded wide from close range.

Chances were hard to come by early on, but Mount was in the thick of things again on 38 minutes to find Olivier Giroud, who saw his header sail over the bar.

The hosts got their reward on the stroke of halftime when Mount found the back of the net with an impressive free-kick from 20 yards out.

Giroud got the second goal seconds later after getting the better of his marker and Rui Patricio to slot into an empty net.

Wolves thew on Adama Traore in the second half in an attempt to reduce the lead, while Diogo Jota saw his powerful strike saved by Caballero just before the hour mark.

Nevertheless, the visitors were resigned to defeat and showed no real attacking intent in the second half as the Blues cruised to a win that secures fourth spot.
