Joao Felix pulled one back as he produced a brilliant solo run before slotting past David de Gea.

The victory moves them to third place in the table, with 72 points on the board, four points ahead of fifth-placed Liverpool.

Erik ten Hag’s team have secured a top-four finish with one league game remaining and will return to the Champions League for next season.

The Dutch boss has delivered Champions League football while bagging the Carabao Cup in his debut season at Old Trafford. He could also still win the FA Cup.

Newcastle United already confirmed their spot in next season’s Champions League campaign following their goalless draw at home to Leicester City on Monday.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool won’t be in the Champions League despite their recent form, having won seven league games in a row prior to their 1-1 draw against Aston Villa last weekend.

So, England’s representatives in next season’s Champions League will be Premier League champions Manchester City, Arsenal, Man United and Newcastle.
