Bruno Fernandes ‘happy’ as Manchester United propel Liverpool into Champions League spot

The Portugal international was among the goals as Erik ten Hag made it into the top four by beating Chelsea 4-1 at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

Casemiro and Anthony Martial scored in the first half before Fernandes won and netted a penalty and Marcus Rashford got on the scoresheet after the break.

Although it was always unlikely that Liverpool could catch the Red Devils on the final day, the three points make it mathematically impossible.

Reds striker Mohamed Salah has expressed frustration after watching United follow Newcastle into Europe’s elite club competition, admitting he was “totally devastated”.

We know it means a lot (to the fans),” Fernandes told Sky Sports.

“For us, it’s about achieving our goals. We know we would also be happy if Liverpool weren’t there, but for us it’s about making the most of ourselves.

It’s the first time Jurgen Klopp’s side have played in Europe’s secondary club competition since their first months at the club in 2015/16.

United could yet spoil another rival’s season when they meet Manchester City in the FA Cup final next month as Pep Guardiola’s side chase what could be a treble.
