Even if Manchester United or West Ham finish in fourth place, they could miss out on Champions League qualification.  If Manchester City win the Champions League and Liverpool win the Europa League, but both finish outside the top four, the fourth-placed side will be denied their spot among Europe’s elite next term.

Under UEFA rules, each association member is allowed a maximum of five participants competing in the Champions League in any given season.  The winners of the tournament are automatically guaranteed a place in the group stage of the following edition and, since 2014-15, the Europa League winners also qualify for the next season’s Champions League
