Hi all, hope someone could help, if Man City win the fa Cup and with Liverpool winning the league Cup and them both qualifying for the champions league what league positions are to qualify for Europe?
Thank you

The league cup becomes a league position qualification.

Spurs will probably take 5the spot and qualify for the Europa.

If City win the FA cup that would then revert to the 6th place as a Europa qualification.

So, there is every chance that 6th spot would be a good place to finish and hope Utd get beat by City.

I think that is the case if my explanation makes sense.

Not sure I do follow.

JBS, I’m sure it’s me and I’m not a 100% sure.

We have to finish no lower than 6th but that may not be enough if Utd win the FA cup.

as far as i can tell 7th gets you in to a european conference league spot as long as Man utd don't end up 8th or worse and win the FA cup.

Thanks Tom and seymns I think I've got it now!

Seymns, you may well be correct but I seem to remember that there were two places for the Europa League.

6th and 7th would have qualified if we had got the 5th Champs league spot.

I’m beginning to think this is a bit like getting involved in FFP or PSR discussions. That in my opinion should be avoided.

It is very very simple. Top 4 will get Champions League, 5th place will get Europa league and the winner of the FA Cup will also get Europa league, if City win it that place will go to the team who finish 6th in the league. If Utd win it and finish outside the top 6 they will get it. The conference league place went to Liverpool but as they appear bound for the Champions league that place reverts to the league. We need to finish 6th to qualify for Europe or 7th if City win the FA Cup.

Hi G8 I thought EPL got two automatic Europa league places not just one?

05 May 2024 20:53:54
JBS. Again I may well be wrong. So, I think we do get two Europa league places but one would go to the FA cup winner unless the winner of the Fa cup have qualified for the champions league or Europa league via there Premier league position.

In essence, it should help if City win the FA cup.

Hi JBS, you are correct in saying the EPL gets 2 Europa places, 1 for the FA Cup winners and one for league position. The FA Cup one will revert to the league position if City win it this season as they will play in the Champions League.
