Manchester United beat Bournemouth 3-1 in an English Premier League game hastily rearranged because of a bomb scare, sealing fifth place and a spot in the Europa League group stage on Tuesday. United was never likely to score the 19 goals needed to finish fourth and qualify for the Champions League, so the aim was to get the win to guarantee an automatic spot in the Europa League and take some momentum into the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Steve Bruce's Hull side conceded two first-half goals but hung on to secure a place in the May 28 final at Wembley, which will bring a money-spinning spot in the Premier League worth up to 170 million pounds ($245.8 million) for the winners. Derby opened the scoring in the seventh minute when Johnny Russell poked home from close range after his first effort was blocked following Chris Martin's downward header at the far post from Cyrus Christie's right-wing cros
