6:23 am on 19 May 2015

Manchester City have assured themselves of direct entry into next season's Champions League with a 4-2 win away at Swansea in football's English Premier League.

Third-placed Arsenal moved two points clear of Manchester United after coming from behind to earn a 1-all draw at Old Trafford.

Only the top three sides in England at the end of the season - which include already-crowned champions Chelsea and City - are guaranteed a place in the group stage of European football's elite club competition.

The Premier League's fourth-placed team have to enter a qualifying round, so United now have it all to do to overtake Arsenal.
