After Man City win appeal, who qualifies for Europe from Premier League?

Written by

With Manchester City winning their appeal against a two-year ban from European competition at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, we now know how the Premier League's slots could be filled. Here's what it means.

Who will qualify for the Champions League?

Liverpool and City have already secured their places in the Champions League. Third and fourth will take the remaining places.

Champions League group stage: Liverpool, Man City, 3rd, 4th

Who qualifies for the Europa League?

Fifth will qualify for the Europa League group stage along with the FA Cup winners.

As Man City won the Carabao Cup and do not need the Europa League place associated with it, that transfers to the Premier League so sixth will enter the competition in the second qualifying round.

Next season, this round will take place on Sept. 17 as a one-legged tie.

Europa League group stage: 5th, FA Cup winners
Europa League second qualifying round: 6th

What if the FA Cup winners have already qualified for Europe?

Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City and Manchester United are in the semifinals. If the FA Cup winners finish inside the top six in the Premier League, then the Europa League place transfers to the league. It looks as though only Arsenal may finish outside the top six of those teams still in the competition.

If the FA Cup winners finish in the top six, this is what it means:

Europa League group stage: 5th, 6th
Europa League second qualifying round: 7th

Manchester City's two-year Champions League ban lifted

Mark Ogden reacts to the CAS overturning UEFA's decision to ban Man City for breaching financial fair play.

Can England have eight teams in Europe?

Only if a team wins a European competition and finishes lower than sixth (or perhaps seventh if Arsenal win the FA Cup).

It will not be possible to qualify for Europe by league position any lower than seventh.

What happens if Man City win the Champions League?

It won't have any effect on the Premier League or the number of teams from England who are in the Champions League. It purely means teams from other leagues will move up a round to fill the empty slot.

If the UCL titleholder does not take the place in the group stage reserved for them -- so this would be the same if, say, Bayern Munich, Juventus or Chelsea, won the competition and finished in the top four -- the champions of country ranked 11th in UEFA's coefficient goes direct to the group stage. For next season, this will be the champions of the Netherlands, Ajax Amsterdam (they assume rank 1 even though the Dutch did not name champions).

The champions of the Czech Republic (Sparta Prague), Greece (Olympiakos), Israel (Maccabi Tel Aviv) and Cyprus (Omonia) also move up to start in a later qualifying round.

What if Chelsea win the Champions League?

Chelsea lost 3-0 at home to Bayern Munich in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie, so this seems unlikely. If they do win the UCL and finish in the top four, England's European access list is unchanged but the Blues would be seeded in the group-stage draw.

If Chelsea win the Champions League and finish fifth or sixth, the number of Premier League teams in the Europa League would be reduced to two. Chelsea would qualify for the Champions League, and the Europa League place they earned through the Premier League would be vacant.

So, with Chelsea in fifth.

Champions League: Liverpool, Man City, 3rd, 4th, Chelsea (Champions League winners)
Europa League group stage: 5th (Chelsea won Champions League), FA Cup winners
Europa League second qualifying round: 6th

What happens if Man United or Wolves win the Europa League?

If either team wins and finishes inside the top four, it will not affect any access to either competition from the Premier League. But the place reserved for the Europa League titleholder in the Champions League group stage will go to Stade Rennes, who should have entered in the third qualifying round. The runners up of Turkey (TBC) and Netherlands (AZ Alkmaar) would move up a round.

If Man United or Wolves win the Europa League and finish outside the top four but in a Europa League place, England would forfeit the Europa League place the team earned (just as in the Chelsea example above). So if Wolves won the Europa League and finished fifth, the place direct in the group stage would be given up.

For example:

Champions League: Liverpool, Man City, 3rd, 4th, Wolves (Europa League winners)
Europa League group stage: 5th (Wolves won Europa League), FA Cup winners
Europa League second qualifying round: 6th

If Wolves won the Europa League and finished outside the European places, England would have five teams in the Champions League with the Europa League allocation unaffected.

Champions League: Liverpool, Man City, 3rd, 4th, Wolves (Europa League winners)
Europa League group stage: 5th, FA Cup winners
Europa League second qualifying round: 6th

What if English teams win both competitions?

As Chelsea appear unlikely to go any further in the Champions League, this is improbable.

If both European winners finish in the top four, the Premier League allocation is unaffected.

If only one of the European winners finishes outside the top four, say Wolves, this would be the access:

Champions League: Liverpool, Man City, 3rd, 4th, Wolves (Europa League winners)
Europa League group stage: 5th (Wolves won Europa League), FA Cup winners
Europa League second qualifying round: 6th

if both the European winners were to finish outside the top four, then fourth place would lose its place in the Champions League.

For example:

Champions League: Liverpool, Man City, 3rd, Chelsea (Champions League winners) Wolves (Europa League winners)
Europa League group stage: 4th, 5th (Chelsea won Champions League), FA Cup winners
Europa League second qualifying round: 6th (Wolves won Europa League)
