Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that the table doesn't lie and his side don't deserve to finish in the top four of the Premier League.
United will have to compete in the Europa League rather than the Champions League next season, their fate confirmed with failure to beat already relegated Huddersfield.
To still be in contention for a top-four finish United had to win in West Yorkshire and took an early lead through Scott McTominay.
However, Town who had only managed four points from their previous 23 games, ensured they leave the Premier League on a high, getting an equaliser from Isaac Mbenza.
United went close to regaining the lead, Paul Pogba hitting the bar, but they couldn't find a winner and look certain to finish a disappointing season in sixth position.
Solskjaer had overseen a dramatic run of form when taking over at Old Trafford from Jose Mourinho. However recent form has seen them drop out of top-four contention once again, going five games without a win after the draw in West Yorkshire.
Solskjaer afterwards gave no excuses and said his team hadn't been good enough throughout the season to warrant a place in the Champions League.
He said: "We haven't deserved to be top four, we've chased the pack and been given chances, the league is so tight. When we got the opportunities we didn't take them. The table doesn't lie in the end.
"It hurts whenever you don't win a game of football. In a stadium like this with loads of energy, their last game of the season at home, we gave them some hope and we couldn't reach our level again."
United will finish their season next weekend when relegated Cardiff are the visitors to Old Trafford.
United are 1/7 to finish the campaign with a victory while Neil Warnock's side are 14/1 and the draw is priced at 7/1.
United are 9/1 to win next season's Premier League with Liverpool 3/1 and Manchester City 8/11.
