The permutations

A win for United will clinch third place in the Premier League and a Champions League spot.

A draw will clinch third if Chelsea lose or draw with Wolves, and will still be enough to finish fourth if Chelsea win.

A loss will still get us into the Champions League in fourth if Chelsea lose to Wolves.
