LONDON - West Ham bade farewell to the Boleyn Ground after 112 years with a pulsating 3-2 victory over Manchester United to leave the visitors' top-four hopes in tatters.
On an emotionally-charged night in east London, it looked as though Anthony Martial's double had ruined the Hammers' party but late headed goals from Michail Antonio and Winston Reid secured the win that almost took the roof off the old stadium.
As the home team lapped up the applause and fans broke into a stirring rendition of their 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' anthem, United's players trudged off knowing their Champions League qualification hopes are no longer in their own hands.
"In the last match of the season we can pass over Manchester City, they can lose and we can win -- then we are fourth, you can count I think?" United boss Louis van Gaal told reporters.
For United to finish fourth they have to beat Bournemouth in their final match of the season while Manchester City must lose to Swansea.
Van Gaal also refused to blame an attack on the team bus by West Ham fans for his side's defeat, though his players looked nonplussed as they were pinned back early on in the Boleyn cauldron after a 45-minute delay to kickoff. -Reuters
