Top four countries play
The race for the Premier League’s top four is heating up. Just eight points separate Manchester United in third and Brentford in eighth. A fourth-place finish might look good for Champions League qualification, but this season is no guarantee. Why is this…
Manchester United currently occupying third position in the Premier League. Erik ten Hag side one point above four-placed Tottenham but have two games in hand.
Spurs are two points further in fifth place Newcastle but have played two more matches than the Magpies, while Liverpool five more points again in six, level with Brighton and Brentford.
How to finish four may not be safe
Under normal circumstances, the top four teams in the Premier League qualify for the Champions League group stage. So as it stands now, it’s Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham.
However, there are other routes to competition. Finishing fourth and not qualifying for next season’s competition depends on Manchester United’s performance and Chelsea at the domestic and European level.
If Chelsea, who are currently 10th in the Premier League, win the Champions League, they will go straight into the group stage of next season’s competition despite not occupying the Premier League’s traditional qualification spots.
Also, if Manchester United win the Europa League, they will automatically qualify for next season’s Champions League group stage even if they finish out of the Premier League’s top four.
UEFA rules state that there will only be a maximum of five English teams in the Champions League, meaning that if the above scenario occurs, fourth place in the Premier League will miss out on Champions League qualification and enter the Europa League group stage.
Chelsea face Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, while Manchester United will face Sevilla in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
