'Leicester's Impossible Dream'


And on that topic...

Tonight on BBC One, Gary Lineker presents a look back at the Premier League season, which saw the Foxes become unlikely league champions.

It's on at 22:45 BST unless you're in Wales (23:10) or Scotland (23:45).

And with that I bid you goodnight.

And so comes to an end the most memorable Premier League season ever - a campaign in which 5,000-1 outsiders Leicester City won their first ever title.

A campaign in which Jurgen Klopp took over Liverpool, but they finished below West Ham and Southampton in the league.  

A campaign in which Chelsea sacked the most heralded coach in their history and only just finished in the top half.

A campaign in which Rafael Benitez started off as Real Madrid boss and ended it getting Newcastle relegated to the Championship.

Manchester United have taken 22 points from a possible 24 in their last eight Premier League games at Old Trafford.

Only bottom side Aston Villa (76) have conceded more top-flight goals this season than Bournemouth (67, level with Norwich).

This was Manchester United’ 19th league win this season; their joint-lowest total of victories in a Premier League campaign (also 19 in 2013-14)

'I am still the manager'

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal to BBC Sport: "I like the second half, it's only the last minute I don't like.

"It was an unnecessary  goal against us to deny David de Gea the golden glove. It's a pity. 

"We played a very good second half against a very defensive opponent.

"We didn’t reach our aim. We have to qualify for the Champions League. We have still the FA Cup final to go. Everyone has to make up his mind at how we have done this season at that time.

"I can only say I have a contract of three years and I want to fulfill that. The transition period is not over yet. I am still the manager."

Bournemouth captain Tommy Elphick told Sky Sports: "To concede as we did just before half-time is hard to take. 

"We were too passive in our defending and we didn't retain the ball when we got it. We usually play with high pressing. We tried something different and it didn't work.

The magnitude of what we've done can't be overlooked - when you see the teams who went down."

West Ham fail in Wilson/Ritchie bids

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has confirmed his club have rejected a bid from West Ham for Callum Wilson and Matt Ritchie. He denied it was for the reported £25m.

"We had a bid yesterday evening. Why it come in the day before our season has finished, I don't know. 

"it was from West Ham but the bid was rejected and we have no intention to sell. We want to try to improve our squad, not weaken it."

Howe also said Bournemouth had been unable to train properly for tonight's game because their training pitches had been dug up.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe told BBC Sport: "It's been a difficult couple of days. Not ideal for anyone. It was disappointing overall for us. They dominated possession, we struggled to get a stranglehold on the game.

"United were a level above us in most departments. We didn't make it as difficult for them as we could have done. There's lots for us to ponder over the summer.

"It's been a fantastic season. We're still in the Premier League - that was the objective. 

"The hard work starts again very quickly. There is work to be done but I don't think we need a major restructuring job."

"Louis van Gaal might have thanked Manchester United's supporters for their backing at the end of the game but the reception he received was anything but unequivocal.

"There were certainly a few boos, although a combination of cheers - and the public address system - helped to drown them out.

"Van Gaal will be walking out in front of his team at Wembley for the FA Cup final on Saturday, but has he just taken charge of his last game as United boss at Old Trafford?"

Anthony Martial has assisted each of Wayne Rooney’s last three goals in all competitions. The French youngster has had a hand in 15 Premier League goals this season (11 goals, 4 assists), more than any other Manchester United player.

Stuart O'Hara‏: The first and last goals of this Premier League season were both own goals at Old Trafford.

Ryan: First goal of the season? Own goal for Manchester United. Last goal of the season? Own goal against Manchester United.

Both England defenders too.

Feels like a lifetime ago but Manchester United beat Tottenham 1-0 on the opening day with Kyle Walker scoring an own goal.

Louis van Gaal walks around the pitch applauding the Manchester United fans, and they seem to be returning the compliment.

They've only finished off the top four on goal difference, and they've got an FA Cup final yet to come.

Simon Stone

BBC Sport

"Manchester United end with three goals, which doesn't quite get them to the half century.

"Their 49 goals is their lowest league return since 1989-90, when they only managed 46.

"And Bournemouth's injury-time consolation means David de Gea is denied a share of the Golden Glove, which Arsenal's Petr Cech wins with 16 clean sheets."

'We hope to bring the FA Cup home to you'

"On behalf of my players, staff and myself, thank you for your unconditional support. 

"Wherever we have played, however things have gone on the field, you never let us down.

"We hope to bring the FA Cup home to you."

They're Louis van Gaal's words to Manchester United fans. His parting words? We'll see this summer.

Bournemouth fans sing "You're getting sacked in the morning" as Louis van Gaal speaks.

It looks like Louis van Gaal will be speaking to the fans as we predicted earlier.

"When Marcus Rashford was playing his first league game of the season at West Brom's training ground on 8 August, he could not have dreamed his last would be at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

"Rashford's transformation from an Under-18 player to potential England international is one of the stories of the season.

"The Mancunian now has eight goals in 17 appearances and left to a standing ovation."

FULL-TIME - Manchester United 3-1 Bournemouth

A Chris Smalling own goal is the last action of the 2015-16 Premier League season.

GOAL - Manchester United 3-1 Bournemouth

Chris Smalling own goal

Bournemouth score their first ever league goal at Old Trafford and it's a Chris Smalling own goal.

Lewis Grabban crosses to Max Gradel, whose shot takes a huge deflection off Smalling.

Three minutes left of the 2015-16 Premier League season, but this game is well and truly done.

Memphis Depay fires well wide from about 20 yards, it's just the English lads on the scoresheet here today.

Ashley Young

Wayne Rooney has played better here than I've seen him in a few years. He clips a fantastic ball over the top - think Andres Iniesta or Lionel Messi for Barcelona - and Ashley Young takes a touch and turns the ball home from close range.

Hull going to Wembley again

It's a Yorkshire derby in the Championship play-off final. Hull City have withheld a brave Derby effort to win 3-2 on aggregate in their semi-final. The Tigers had won the first leg 3-0.

Sheffield Wednesday await Hull at Wembley.

Reaction here.


Off comes Anthony Martial for Manchester United. And with that I have won the BBC Sport online fantasy football league.

I might get off now for a few celebratory beers.

Oh wait, I've still got to do this live text and there's six minutes left.

On comes Ashley Young.

Michal Koziol: Rooney is magnificent tonight. I'd love to see his pass accuracy. Dominating the middle, near perfect passing.

Rooney has had 85.9% passing accuracy from 85 passes - don't say we're not good to you.

Ten minutes to go of the 2015-16 Premier League season. Hard to see Bournemouth getting back into this game.

Marcus Rashford has been involved in seven goals in 11 Premier League appearances for Manchester United this season - five goals and two assists.

Marcus Rashford

Are you watching Roy Hodgson? Marcus Rashford plays the ball to Wayne Rooney, who crosses to Antonio Valencia. He heads it down to Rashford - who had continued his run - and the teenager smashes the ball home from 16 yards out. Brilliant finish.

Marcus Rashford

Callum Wilson is flagged offside - correctly - after Benik Afobe flicks on a header to him. Wilson pretends he hadn't heard the whistle and smashes the ball home. But he knew. Oh, he knew.

A great spin on the edge of the box for Marcus Rashford to lose a defender and get in on goal, the Manchester United teenager steps past keeper Adam Federici but it's too wide and the chance is gone.

Simon Stone

"It's been a strange day for Manchester United's international midfielders.

"Juan Mata, who is making his 53rd appearance of the season tonight, has not made Spain's provisional Euro 2016 squad, yet Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has been injured since 20 March, has made Germany's 27-man party.

"Mata has been decent tonight. Might have had a penalty and produced a neat piece of skill to create a shooting chance for himself."


Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard bursts into the box and Charlie Daniels does brilliantly to slide in and win the ball from the side/a bit behind. 

However he did take Lingard out with his other leg. I think no penalty but they do get awarded sometimes.
