The game witnessed Garnacho capitalizing on a defensive error between Josko Gvardiol and Stefan Ortega, slotting the ball into an empty net at the 30-minute mark.

Mainoo extended United's lead nine minutes later with a stylish finish, concluding a fluid move initiated by Garnacho and embellished by a sublime first-time, no-look pass from captain Bruno Fernandes.

Although City mounted a strong comeback attempt, Andre Onana's remarkable saves kept United in the lead, including a diving stop to deny Kyle Walker and thwarted attempts from Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.

City managed to pull one back in the 87th minute when Jeremy Doku's long-range effort slipped through Onana's grasp, narrowing the scoreline to 2-1.

With seven minutes of added time, tension gripped United fans, but the Red Devils held firm until the final whistle, clinching a memorable 2-1 victory.

This triumph ensured that Erik ten Hag's side secured their place in next season's Europa League tournament, displacing Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Chelsea, amidst their search for a new manager, will now compete in the Conference League, while Newcastle, despite finishing seventh, will miss out on European competition next season.
