Manchester United won the English Premier League on Thursday night. They beat Chelsea 4-1. With this victory, the ticket for the UEFA Champions League was confirmed for the Red Devils. On the other hand, Liverpool missed the opportunity.
Man U is third in the points table with 72 points from 37 matches. Newcastle United are fourth with 70 points from a draw. And with 66 points, Liverpool has dropped to fifth place.
Casemiro-Marshall-Fernandes-Rashford played a kind of boy-game against Chelsea last night at home. Casemiro led the team by scoring in the sixth minute of the match. Just before the break (45+5) Anthony Marshall’s goal doubled the lead.
Eric ten Haag’s men got a penalty in the 73rd minute after the break. At this time, Bruno Fernandes scored from the penalty to make the difference 3-0. And in the 78th minute, Marcus Rashford’s goal made the difference 4-0. Chelsea’s Joao Felix only narrowed the deficit in the 89th minute. But that was not enough to avoid defeat.
Three-time European champions Manchester United did not qualify for the Champions League last year. Ten Haag considers it important to get the opportunity now, ‘The club is back in the Champions League, it’s really important. But getting this place from the Premier League is not easy. It’s a very tough league. When you make it to the Champions League from this league, that means you’ve done very well.’
