Fresh from EPL victory, Man-United and Chelsea secure top 2 spots

Share This


Manchester United and Chelsea have grabbed the final 2 Champions League places at the expense of Leicester City on the final day of the English Premier League (EPL) season. The 3 teams were separated by just 1 point heading into Sunday and Chelsea beat Wolves 2-0 at home to book one of the spots with both goals coming in first-half injury time.

 

That meant Leicester needed to beat Manchester United for the other place but instead it lost 2-0 at home thanks to a Bruno Fernandes penalty in the 70th minute. It was United's record 14th penalty of the season and Fernandes has never missed one.

Former United defender Jonny Evans was sent off in injury time for a foul on Scott McTominay, with Jesse Lingard later adding the second goal. Manchester United and Chelsea finished on 66 points (United got third with a better goal difference) and Leicester City 62.


United was set to lose around £70 million ($90 million) had it missed out on the top four but flourished in the league since it restarted in June 2020 after being halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
