Man Utd Keeps European Hopes Alive with 3-2 Win Over Newcastle

Manchester United kept their European ambitions alive with a 3-2 win against Newcastle on Wednesday, inspired by Amad Diallo’s stunning goal.
Erik ten Hag’s team is fighting for a seventh-place finish in the Premier League, which would secure a spot in next season’s UEFA Conference League.
They could also qualify for the Europa League if they win the FA Cup final against Manchester City on May 25. However, if City wins, seventh place will suffice for a Conference League berth.
Currently eighth, United moved level on points with seventh-placed Newcastle thanks to goals from Kobbie Mainoo, Diallo, and Rasmus Hojlund at Old Trafford.
This marks only their third win in nine league matches. Despite the victory, United’s goal difference is significantly worse than Newcastle’s, requiring them to outperform the Magpies in the season’s final game.
United will face Brighton on Sunday, while Newcastle travels to Brentford.
Newcastle’s loss ensured fifth-placed Tottenham’s qualification for the Europa League next season.
Sixth-placed Chelsea, meanwhile, edged closer to European qualification with a 2-1 victory over Brighton in another Wednesday fixture.
Following their final home game, United performed a subdued ‘lap of honour.’ The season has been one of the club’s worst in the Premier League era, putting Ten Hag’s job at risk.
Reflecting on the match, Ten Hag said, “It’s important to win the last game at Old Trafford this season. The fans deserve this because they’ve had difficult times and always stayed with us. We wanted to pay the fans back. We have Brighton in the last game which is important in the ranking. We don’t have it in our hands but we have to do our job.”
