The Premier League faces the risk of losing an additional Champions League spot for the upcoming season, following the premature exits of Manchester United and Newcastle United in the current campaign. Both teams concluded at the bottom of their respective groups, leading to their exclusion from European competition altogether.

Starting from the next season, the Champions League will expand to 36 teams, with two European leagues receiving extra slots. This means that the fifth-placed team in the Premier League for this season could secure an automatic qualification to the Champions League.

However, UEFA determines the allocation of these additional places based on association coefficient rankings, which consider the performance of all European clubs in UEFA competitions. Over the past seven seasons, the Premier League would have consistently gained an extra Champions League spot due to the strong performance of its clubs in Europe. Nevertheless, with the recent eliminations of Manchester United and Newcastle, England currently ranks third behind Germany and Italy in ESPN’s coefficient calculations.
