Report explains what Tottenham need to do to secure Europa League football

Football.London have now explained that Tottenham Hotspur can qualify for next season’s Europe League even if they finish in sixth place as long as the FA Cup is won by a team who finishes in the top five.

Although Tottenham are mathematically still not out of the race for Champions League qualification, that now looks a distant dream for Ryan Mason’s men, who sit six points behind fourth place, having played a game more.

The next target would be Europa League qualification, which will be awarded to the team that finishes fifth and the team who wins the FA Cup while the team that finishes in sixth place would enter the Europa Conference League.

However, Football.London explains that should the team which wins the FA Cup final (which is between Man City and Man Utd) finish in the top five of the Premier League table, that means the team who finishes in sixth place will also enter next season’s Europa League.

As such, the Europa Conference League qualification spot would also drop down a place to seventh.

Spurs Web Opinion

Man Utd do not seem likely to drop out of the top five, which means that a sixth-place finish will likely be enough for Europa League qualification.

However, with Brighton and Aston Villa breathing down our necks, we need to win our last three matches to give ourselves the best chance of finishing sixth.
