Louis van Gaal will watch Liverpool's match against Chelsea today with "a fantastic glass of wine" after opening up a seven point gap on Brendan Rodgers' side.
Saturday's hard fought victory at Crystal Palace ensured United will finish in a coveted top four position by securing just one more point from their last two games.
But the Red Devils could secure a Champions League spot without playing today if Chelsea beat Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to the media after United's 1-2 win at Palace, he said:
I am very happy with the result and it brings us a step closer to our goal.
Now we will see [on Sunday], with a fantastic glass of wine, the result between Liverpool and Chelsea.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick will miss the rest of the season with a calf problem, manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed.
Manchester United new boy Memphis Depay will be a hit at Old Trafford, according to ex-Red Devils defender Jaap Stam.
The forward agreed a £22million move to the Premier League on Thursday and Stam believes his mix of pace and goals will shine in England.
He's a quality player.
United always want to attack and the club always has an interest in players that have a lot of pace and who can also play the one-vs-ones and create something or score goals. Memphis is that type of player.
He's proven that in Holland for a couple of seasons now and also with the national team and I think it's a good step for him to join United now, and also work with (manager) Louis van Gaal because he knows him very well of course.
