Man United, Chelsea qualify for Champions League as Leicester finish fifth

Manchester United in nearly-$100 million game against Leicester

Leicester have ended the season sitting in fifth place in the Premier League, with 62 points from 38 games.

They were beaten 2-0 at home by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men though as Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard struck for the visitors.

Another Leicester player with United connections was at fault for the second as Schmeichel, son of legendary former United 'keeper Peter Schmeichel, was caught in possession by Lingard, who gratefully took the chance to end a hard season on and off the field on a high.

United looked jaded in the past week, but Solskjaer urged his team to finish the job after they climbed into the top four for the first time since September.

"But we had to go for it".

Rodgers will have Europa League football on the agenda with Leicester next season.

United just needed a point to consolidate their place in the top four and a tense game with so much on the line for both clubs was decided 19 minutes from time when Jonny Evans and Wes Morgan combined to bring down Anthony Martial and Fernandes converted from the spot.

It could be a nervous afternoon for Lampard, but he is staying positive: "We're aware of the situation, but we try and win".

Sixth placed Wolves would be certain of the other Europa League berth if they beat Chelsea. Since Christmas, if you'd have said we can take it to the last game against Leicester we'd have snapped your hand off.

At the bottom, fourth bottom Villa go to West Ham knowing they should be safe if they match third bottom Watford's result at Arsenal.

He also sent a message toasting the team's victory and success. "We had to catch up so many points and so many goals and we've done it". "He put us 1-0 up today", Maguire said.

"The next game is the biggest game of all our careers", Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said.
