Incoming Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag now knows full well the scale of the job he has at United after the Reds had to rely on a favour from Brighton to avoid the ignominy of the Europa Conference League next season.
Brighton were gifted their fourth home win of the season by a lackadaisical Manchester United as they thrashed the Reds 4-0.
Manchester United produced one of the more impressive displays of the season to register a comprehensive victory against Brentford in the last home league game of the season.
Manchester United displayed fight that has been lacking in recent weeks as they came from behind to earn a draw against Chelsea.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th Premier League goal but could not prevent Arsenal from beating Manchester United in a further blow to their Champions League hopes.
