MANCHESTER UNITED are GUARANTEED to be playing European football next season.
As a result of Wolves being spanked 5-1 at home to Manchester City, it means United can finish no lower than seventh.
Though incoming boss Erik ten Hag might not be too enamoured with the Europa Conference League that position gets.
United are currently in sixth and a Europa League spot, with one game left.
West Ham are seventh, three points behind but a game in hand.
Wolves could still catch the Hammers and claim a Europa Conference League spot, but would have to win both their finals games and hope David Moyes’ side lose theirs.

Ten Hag, who secured Ajax the title with a thumping 5-0 win against Heerenveen, is expected to undergo a major squad rebuild at United.
And while the Europa League could be a chance to blood through some of the young talents at the club, the much-derided Conference League could be a distraction.
Meanwhile, United are reportedly closing in on naming Mitchell van der Gaag as part of Ten Hag’s coaching staff.
