The Red Devils are in desperate need of a win to keep their grip on the fourth place while Liverpool hosts Aston Villa. Newcastle, who are in third place, have a game left and are three points ahead. They will play Leicester on Monday.
Erik ten Hag is aware that United's fate is in their hands. A victory on the South Coast will put them within touching distance. To be sure of their place in Europe’s elite competition, they would only need to win one of their two remaining matches, both at their home stadium, against Chelsea or Fulham.
The Red Devils are getting closer to Europe's top club prize. He said: "When I see this project, it's first and foremost important to get into the Champions League. I don't believe today at that level, I look forward to the next match, Bournemouth. We have to win that match to get into the Champions League.
He said: "I think, as far as I'm concerned, it's really fantastic a club like Bournemouth. They are in the Premier League, and three games before the season ends, they will definitely be in the league for next season. You can clearly see patterns in the work, so well done."
Rashford didn't report to training with the rest of United's squad on Monday after he informed the club that he was ill and had to stay home. The England striker has only recently resumed training after a leg injury. He is therefore unlikely to travel to the south coast to face the United squad tomorrow.
United boss Erik ten Hag also revealed that defender Raphael Varane was also available after he returned in last weekend's 2-0 victory over Wolves. Scott McTominay, meanwhile, has resumed his training: "Rashy worked out well all week, but today he said he was ill," Ten Hag.
"We will have to wait and see how he does tomorrow. Varane will be available. Scott has joined in training. When we see how well he performs in training, we will know if we can include him.
Jones said: "It has been very difficult the last two years. It's a fact. It's not something you can hide from. My family has been instrumental in keeping me focused and on track to get fitter and play more."
"And, you'll know, I've been missing playing football."I missed it. You grow up playing soccer and all you want is to play football. From a young age, I have always done what I love for a living. I've had the good fortune to do this, although not as much as I wanted."
