Going into the final game of the season against Crystal Palace this afternoon, Tottenham Hotspur need all three points to give themselves the best chance of qualifying for the Europa League.

As a result of their improved run of form recently, Spurs cannot finish any lower than seventh, even if they suffer defeat at Selhurst Park.

However, the Lilywhites will have to better Wolves’ result at Chelsea, in order to seal sixth place, and qualify for the Europa League regardless of the result in the FA Cup final when Arsenal take on Frank Lampard’s side.

Swiss Ramble (as relayed by Football.London) has revealed that the difference in the reward money between finishing sixth and seventh this season will be around £2.7million.

Additionally, The Athletic previously reported that the club could potentially pocket around £60-£80 million if they make it to the final of the Europa League next season in the form of reward money, TV rights and matchday revenue.

Given that Tottenham have estimated around £200m in losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the result of afternoon’s final Premier League match could be crucial in providing the club with some financial reprieve.

Despite our failure to qualify for the Champions League, I am sure Levy would have made it clear to Jose that the additional matchday revenue from the Europa League might be crucial for the club next season, assuming fans are allowed back in the stadia soon.

Jose has also reiterated his ambition to win the competition next season, which indicates that we will be taking it seriously. So our result (and Wolves’) this afternoon could have a crucial bearing on next season.
