Man United and Chelsea qualification to the Champions League

  • The final day of the Premier League season did come to an end with drama as the top four spots decided. Manchester United and Chelsea will be playing in the Champions League next season, while Leicester have been resigned to the Europa League after their fifth finish.

Leicester and Man United met at the King Power Stadium in what was a top-four playoff, whereas Wolves was hosted by Chelsea in need of a point to secure their place. Foxes were left heartbroken at the final whistle as only two could squeeze into the top four.

Chelsea achieved more than they needed to beat Wolves 2-0 while Man United also acquired three points, winning by the same scoreline.

Despite the first half of Leicester vs United being uneventful, Chelsea became active on the verge of half-time at Stamford Bridge.

In the first minute of added time, Mason Mount opened the scoring with a remarkable free-kick before Olivier Giroud rounded the goalkeeper to make it 2-0 in less than two minutes later.

Chelsea qualified for Champions League at half time and it was over to Leicester or Man United to fight over the remaining spot. The second 45 minutes at King Power were more open and Jamie Vardy had the best early chance after the break.

He flicked a header onto the bar from a Youri Tielemans free-kick on the hour mark. But then disaster struck at the other end. Anthony Martial was fouled inside the box by a combination of Wes Mogan and Jonny Evans and the referee pointed to the spot

United saw out the game comfortably with the goal advantage and even added a second in the end through Jesse Lingard.

There was no late drama in London as Wolves failed to seriously threaten in the second half against Chelsea.

The full-time whistle blew simultaneously at Stamford Bridge at the King Power Stadium, confirming the results. Man United and Chelsea finish on 66 points while Leicester ends the season in fifth, with 62 points.
