Man Utd are back where they belong! Winners and losers as Erik ten Hag clinches a top-four finish - but Chelsea looks miles off a Champions League return

Manchester United booked their return to the Champions League in emphatic style by thrashing Chelsea 4-1 at Old Trafford. As he has done for most of the campaign, Casemiro led the way, bulldozing his opponents in midfield without mercy.

He scored one goal, helped set up another for Anthony Martial and spurred United on to a memorable thrashing which was completed by a Bruno Fernandes penalty and a late strike from Marcus Rashford, his 30th goal of the season.

It was a glorious end to what has been a long but exciting first season under Erik ten Hag, who has United back on the path to greatness, even if they are still quite a way from it. Chelsea, by contrast, look a long way from returning to Europe's elite competition, and this was another harrowing night for the Blues, who slumped to their eighth defeat under Frank Lampard.

It was also an agonising night for Antony, who was carried off on a stretcher with an injury which looks set to rule him out of the FA Cup final.
