Following Manchester City’s 1-1 draw with Swansea, Manchester United will not play in the Champions League next season. Even if we beat Bournemouth, we will miss out because of City’s superior goal difference, just as we did with the title in 2012.

West Ham lost to Stoke, meaning the lowest United can finish is sixth. A win against Bournemouth would move us above Southampton in to fifth. Our goal difference is currently 18 goals worse than City’s.
