Potential Premier League Make Up In 2017/18 (15/5/17)

Potential Premier League Make Up In 2017/18 (15/5/17)

With a few games remaining in the 2016/17 campaign, some promotions and relegations in the football pyramid are already known.

With the vast majority of sides already knowing which tier of football they will be playing next season, there are a few spots still to be confirmed and here are the potential final make ups for the next campaign.

2017/18 will see the top three teams qualify for the Champions League with the fourth placed side entering at the Play Off round. However, if Leicester City win the Champions League or Manchester United win the Europa League (but finish outside of the top four) they will enter the Champions League. Should both win their competitions, the fourth placed side will be entered into the Europa League and the fifth placed side will enter the Europa League at the Group Stage, as will the FA Cup winners.

With Manchester United already guaranteed a Europa League place owing to the League Cup win, if they finish in the top four, their Europa League place will go to whoever finishes in sixth place.

If the FA Cup winners and winners up and Manchester United all qualify via league placing, the sixth and seventh placed sides will enter the Europa League.

There are no Fair Play places allocated for the Europa League either.

Confirmed and Guaranteed:

Chelsea
Tottenham Hotspur
Liverpool
Manchester City
Arsenal
Manchester United
Everton
West Bromwich Albion
Southampton
Bournemouth
Leicester City
West Ham United
Crystal Palace
Stoke City
Burnley
Watford
Swansea City

Championship promotions:

Newcastle United
Brighton

Championship possible Play Offs:

Huddersfield Town
Reading
Sheffield Wednesday
Fulham

Premier League relegated:

Hull City
Middlesbrough
Sunderland
