Manchester United need a point from their final game to clinch a Champions League place after coming from behind to draw against West Ham.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side moved into the top four, ahead of Leicester, who they face away on Sunday.

But a win for Brendan Rodgers’ side will deny the Red Devils a spot in Europe’s elite club competition next season. Chelsea need a point from their last two games to take a Champions League place.

West Ham went ahead on the stroke of half-time through Michail Antonio’s penalty after Paul Pogba handled inside the area. United levelled early in the second half through Mason Greenwood.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta leapt to the defence of the club’s money men on Tuesday after fans flew a banner over Villa Park saying “Back Arteta, Kroenke Out”.

A 0-1 defeat by relegation battlers Aston Villa left Arsenal down in 10th place in the Premier League and facing their worst finish since 1995 when they were 12th. Trezeguet netted the winning goal in the 27th minute.

“I have full support from the Kroenkes, from the board, from the sporting director,” Arteta said.
