Either Chelsea carry this momentum across three competitions for the rest of the season or something's got to give and maybe they'll slip up in the league. Hopefully the later!

Not too keen on cheering on Chelsea in a champs league final so we can then qualify from 5th!

{Ed077's Note - you cannot qualify by finishing 5th, because Liverpool aren't going to win the CL (or EL for that matter). Chelsea however can finish 5th or lower and still qualify for next season's CL by winning the CL this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought if Man U win the Europa, if we finish 5th then we qualify.

{Ed077's Note - no. You need to win either the CL or EL to still qualify for the Champions League if you don't finish in the top 4.

Fair play to Chelsea I thought they were by far the better side tonight. Fernandinho lucky to be on the pitch. Even if the foot down (wouldn’t say it was a stamp) was a yellow he should have then got a 2nd yellow in the 2nd half after almost rugby tackling mount on half way line.

City were going for the quadruple but I doubt this will knock them too much as the 2 big ones for them is the league and CL. The league is more or less Sewn up and they have a tight game in PSG but getting to the semi of a CL is no small feet.

Fair play to Pep worst case he’s won the league and best case could be a double or treble. Not bad for someone who had been found out come last October.

Yep I remember that, this whole page said Pep had been found out. I tipped Man City was the only one.

I think we just have to take each game as it comes. West Ham lost today and I think Leicester might go into free fall. We just have to win our games, and be there to capitalise on anyone tripping up.

I am sure I read it somewhere (might even have been from one of the Ed’s on here, although I could be mistaken) that if we end up getting fifth and Utd come in second but win the europa league, then we do make it into the champions league.

{Ed002's Note - No, there would be no fifth place in that case.}

17 Apr 2021 21:15:29
That was said, mistake must have been realised though.

I think web links get filtered out but I will try post 2 links in a tic.

I'm sure many are already aware but looking at the league (obviously we need to win games) a lot of the teams around us play eachother, so someone will be dropping points eg Chelsea (arguably having the toughest run in) have got to play West Ham, Leicester, and City - in addition to Chelsea, Leicester have to play Utd, and Spurs, so I reckon it's not too much of a stretch to still see us finishing 3rd, 4th, or 5th.

So, if City wins CL and EFL Cup (or Chelsea wins CL and FA Cup) and Utd wins EL, what happens in that case?

How would a fifth team go into CL, as we've seen happen on a number of years now?

I had hoped 5th might be enough to get us into CL, but it doesn't seem so?

Was it 2019/ 2020 season maybe where things got ridiculously complicated with City's ban being overturned?

{Ed002's Note - A fifth team would be the winner of the CL or EL who are not in the top four. If English sides win both EL and Cl then fourth drops to the EL and the extra place goes to another country.}

No bonus prize for coming 5th. The only scenario is if EL and CL winners are from England and they BOTH finish outside top 4. Then top 3 get CL spots plus 2 spots for the EL and CL winners. 5 max.
4th spot miss out only in that scenario.

Only scenario gives 5th place a CL spot if they won EL or CL in which case they take the 5th CL spot for winning one of those comps. There would be no change for the top 4 in that case.

18 Apr 2021 05:52:02
Nightmare scenario is us beating Chelsea to 4th, they then go on to win the CL and then arsenal win the EL.

17 Apr 2021 22:57:33
Ah cheers for clarifying Ed77, was obviously confused!

{Ed077's Note - no worries.

18 Apr 2021 07:35:33
We are going to have to go full tilt for third then.

18 Apr 2021 12:39:38
Spot on, Mark. I love that attitude. 3rd is more than reachable not just 4th so to end all debate so, finish 3rd and job done.
