Manchester United will play in the Europa League next season, having finished fifth in the English Premier League on Sunday.
This comes despite a 1-0 loss away to Crystal Palace in the final match of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
Ralph Rangnick’s side came into the game in fifth place and knew that a win might be enough to see them advance to the second-tier club competition regardless of results elsewhere.
But they lost the confrontation after Wilfried Zaha scored the only goal in the match in the 37th minute to condemn them to another defeat in the last match played by Ralf Rangnick.
