Manchester United v Bournemouth Bomb Scare: Match re-scheduling announced

16 May

Although there was obvious relief that it proved to be a hoax, the abandonment – the first ever in the Premier League for a security alert – left officials with a major headache.

United will play in the Europa League along with Southampton next season, but there is still the significant issue of their final position determining whether they have to go through qualifying stages to get there.

All that will not matter if they win the FA Cup, because that would ensure automatic qualification, but United need the safety net of fifth place in case Palace beat them at Wembley.

United midfielder Marouane Fellaini will be relieved the match will be played tomorrow, leaving him free to play in the final after serving a three-game ban.
