EPL: Tottenham, Chelsea, Man Utd to fight for Europa, Conference League spots

Four Premier League teams will be fighting for European football on the last day of the season.

Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Aston Villa have all qualified for next season’s Champions League.

But Tottenham, Chelsea, Newcastle and Manchester United are fighting for European qualification.

On Wednesday night, United beat Newcastle 3-2 and Chelsea won 2-1 at Brighton.

The result leaves Spurs in fifth (63points), Chelsea in sixth (60), Newcastle in seventh (57) and United in eighth (57).

The teams that finish fifth and sixth will qualify for the Europa League if Manchester City win the FA Cup.

In that instance, seventh would go into the Conference League.

However, if United win the FA Cup, they will qualify for the Europa League, as well as the team finishing fifth.

In that scenario, the side in sixth would play in the Conference League and the side in seventh would miss out on Europe.

But if United finish sixth and win the FA Cup, the Conference League place again moves down to the side finishing seventh.

On the last day of the campaign, Manchester United are away at Brighton, Chelsea welcome Bournemouth, Spurs travel to Sheffield United and Newcastle take on Brentford.
