The Red Devils opened the score-sheet following a superb
string of passes before Wayne Rooney slotted home from

In-form 18-year-old striker Marcus Rashford made it two for
the home side in the 75th minute before Ashley Young
completed the rout, three minutes from time.
The unrelenting visitors later got a consolation after their
effort was rewarded through a Chris Smalling own goal. It
ended Manchester United 3 – 1 AFC Bournemouth.
As a result, city rivals Manchester City have secured the
fourth position and Louis van Gaal’s side will only get a
chance to feature in Europe next season in the Europa
League.

This will definitely have a damaging impact on the incoming
revenue for Manchester United.
United will lose over £30million in broadcast revenue for
failing to qualify for the Champions League and there will
be a 30 % cut in the Adidas deal.
