Manchester United have sealed second place on the Premier League standings for this season despite playing a score draw with already-relegated Fulham at home on Tuesday. The point earned was enough to see the Red Devils finish this season as the second best team behind city rivals Manchester City with a game to spare after Leicester City were beaten at Chelsea.

Newly crowned FA Cup champions Leicester City were on the end of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of hosts Chelsea in the race for Champions League football. Only Manchester United and Manchester City are guaranteed a place in next season's Champions League with the likes of Leicester City, Chelsea and Liverpool still fighting it out for the final two Champions League slots.

Leicester City started the week in third place and they were the only serious threat to Manchester United in second place but they have since dropped to fourth place after the defeat at Chelsea. The Foxes might fall to fifth place on goal difference if Liverpool manage to beat home team Burnley on Wednesday night.

For Manchester United, the players were unable to give the returning fans a win in the last home game of the season thanks to the impressive display from London opposition Fulham. Fans returned to match venues for the first time in months and the Theatre of Dreams was not left out.

The biggest news before the Fulham game was the return of David De Gea to the starting XI. The Spanish international was the undisputed number one at the club before Dean Henderson returned to the club from his two-year loan spell at Sheffield United. David De Gea has seen his playing minutes diminish in recent months after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted for Henderson in some games.

David De Gea made an impact on his return to the starting XI as he was involved in the opening goal of the game. His goal kick was flicked on to EdinsonCavani by Bruno Fernandes before the Uruguayan striker produced a moment of brilliance to give his team a first half lead against the Cottagers. Fulham came back in the second half to rescue a point thanks to the goal from fullback Joe Bryan.

De Gea will have to contend with Henderson for a place in the Europa League final with manager Solksjaer still undecided on his starting goalkeeper for the all-important game against Villarreal.
