Newcastle, Manchester United, Liverpool keep playing tickets. With a high probability we know who will go to both the Champions League and the Europa League.
The penultimate round of the Premier League has not yet ended, but it is already roughly clear which four teams will play in the English Champions League next season. Liverpool lost points at home in the match with Aston Villa (1: 1), and in a side game, Manchester United defeated Brighton (1: 0).
Thus, Klopp’s team remained in fifth place and is three points behind Manchester United and Newcastle. This means that even a draw in one of the two remaining matches is enough for both. At the same time, Manchester United will play Chelsea and Fulham at home, and Newcastle will play Leicester at home and Chelsea away (if the points are tied, the main criterion is the difference between goals scored and goals scored). embedded).
It is very likely that Manchester City, Arsenal, Newcastle and Manchester United will play for England next season in the Champions League. It became clearer and vouchers for other European competitions. As long as Manchester United don’t fall below fourth place, it doesn’t matter which Manchester team wins the FA Cup Final. Now, in any case, one more place will be distributed in the Europa League based on the Premier League table.
Champions League: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place;European League: 5th and 6th places;Conference League: 7th place
Despite losing points, Liverpool are guaranteed a place in the Europa League. The only team that can overtake is Brighton, but sixth place gives the LE exactly the same ticket. Both teams advance to the group stage, skipping the qualifying rounds.
By the way, where will this legend end?

Aston Villa and Tottenham will fight for a place in the Conference League (if Brighton manages without recession). At the same time, Unai Emery’s side are a point ahead, and a win over Brighton on the final day guarantees a place in the Conference League. But if “Villa” stumbles, “Tottenham” can still enter the international tournament, defeating “Leeds” in the last round.
There is a slim chance that Brentford will enter the Conference League, however this does not look realistic at all. Still, the team has less points than Villa and Tottenham, and to play in the last round, with Manchester City. Even if this club, most likely, by that time the title of champion is already guaranteed.
Comeback at 90+8 minutes after 0:4 and victory in the penalty shootout. Crazy party in England!
