Champions League hopes ruined by Huddersfield draw

Nemanja Matic of Manchester United celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford

Jamie Redknapp says selling Paul Pogba will not solve Manchester United's fortunes after they missed out on a Champions League spot.

Poor form meant Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were always going to be relying on unlikely results elsewhere if they were to seal Champions League football, but few expected them to come a cropper at the John Smith's Stadium.

They've averaged around 70 points a season since 2013, and this year Liverpool could rack up 97 and still finish second.

Speaking before the game, Neville spoke in no uncertain terms about Sanchez, insisting the Chilean was finished at this level.

"We knew it is going to be hard but our focus is now the Europa League", Arsenal manager Unai Emery, whose side lead 3-1 going into the second leg of their semi-final at Valencia next week, said with an air of resignation. Nobody even tries to kid themselves about him anymore.

There were also reports that a 35-year-old woman was moderately injured, sustaining wounds to her limbs in the city of Ashkelon. The country's Iron Dome missile-defence system shot down dozens of the rockets, the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said.

And United icon Neville believes Solskjaer will have to make big changes to the team to make them competitive again, pointing ot Mauricio Pochettino's work at Tottenham as an example to follow.

Sanchez has struggled with form and fitness issues since his move and has failed to live up to expectations despite being one of Manchester United's highest-paid players.

"I am an optimist by nature and you have to make the most of it". We could have, should have played better.

United, on the other hand, do not have a director of football and have a very uncertain future heading into a Europa League-bound season.

United needed two wins, one each from Matchday 37 and Matchday 38, if they were to have any chance of finishing in the top-four in the Premier League - which in turn, would guarantee UCL qualification for the next season.

It also described attempts by Trump to obstruct Mueller's probe, but did not say whether Trump had committed a crime. Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec called Ms Pelosi's allegation "reckless, irresponsible and false".

"The players were running, were trying and we just weren't good enough".

"In the first half an hour they weren't close to our box once".

"We gave ourselves a chance to be in the Champions League, something we didn't think was possible".

"I want to get to the stage where we have a set system, but it hasn't worked that way yet".

While the Premier League title race has been contested by two thoroughbreds the battle to finish third and fourth has descended into a demolition derby in which Chelsea emerged from the wreckage to seal a top-four finish on Sunday.
