The Premier League has been finished, but the winners of the Champions League and Europa League are still in question. And this forms a base for the speculation on who will join the next season’s Champions League and Europa League matches.
What the fact to think forward:
4 teams are already qualified for the Champion League group stage, as they have shown exceptional performance in Premier League. These are the top 4 teams: Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.
The 5th team who will be joining them would be Leicester City, who will be in the Europa League group stage.
When Manchester City won the Carabao Cup, Tottenham has landed in Europa League second qualifying round.
There are so many ifs and buts to be answered in the future matches and wins, a few of the speculations are as follows:
- If Manchester City or Chelsea wins the Champions League, there will be no slot left for any team for the upcoming Champions League. The same is true when Manchester United wins the Europa League.
- However, if Wolves wins the Europa League, 5 teams will participate in the next season of the Champions League.
- If Chelsea takes the FA Cup, Tottenham will qualify for the Europa League group stage and Wolves will take a spot in Europa League as the 7th team.
- If Arsenal wins the FA Cup, Tottenham will participate in Europa League qualifying rounds. In this case, Wolves has to win the Europa League to secure a spot in the next season.
The only chance for all the top 8 teams to participate in both the highly admirable European Competitions combined is if Wolves takes the Europa League cup and joins the top 4: Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea in the Champions League, while Arsenal has to win the FA Cup and joins Leicester City and Tottenham in the Europa League matches.
Whatever be the case going forward, Premier League has given Man City, Man United, Chelsa, and Wolves extra time off before initiating the campaign for 2020-21, as they will be involved in this season’s Europa League and Champions League competitions.
