Manchester United and Chelsea book spot for Champions League. Leicester, Tottenham into Europa League as Aston Villa seal Premier League survival.

Manchester United and Chelsea booked their spots in next season’s Champions League but it was relegation for Bournemouth and Watford, despite valiant efforts on the final day.

United needed just a point at Leicester to secure a top-four finish.

However, Bruno Fernandes’ cool penalty and Jesse Lingard’s late goal helped them to a 2-0 win to grab third place in the Premier League table, level on 66 points with fourth-placed Chelsea, who beat Wolves 2-0.

Fifth-placed Leicester will go into the Europa League group stages along with Tottenham.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will now have to wait until the FA Cup final on August 1 to see whether they will be in Europe.

Arsenal win against Chelsea at Wembley would see the Gunners take the second qualifying-round place.

It was misery at the other end of the table for Bournemouth and Watford. Eddie Howe’s side pulled off a brilliant and brave 3-1 win at Everton.

But it was not enough to lift them out of the drop zone because of Aston Villa’s nervy point at West Ham.

Watford also fall into the Championship, finishing second-bottom and, like Bournemouth, after going down 3-2 at Arsenal. Norwich – who lost 5-0 at Manchester City – had already been relegated.
