Report: The permutations for Spurs to qualify for Europa League on Sunday

Sky Sports have revealed the various permutations that could dictate who qualifies for European competitions ahead of their final match of the season.

With Leicester winning the FA Cup and Manchester City winning the Carabao Cup, the teams who finish in fifth and sixth place will qualify for the Europa League next season.

Meanwhile, the team that finishes seventh (the position currently occupied by Spurs) would find themselves entering the inaugural edition of the Europa Conference League.

Tottenham have no chance of finishing in fifth place after their defeat against Aston Villa but sixth place is very much up for grabs for Ryan Mason’s men.

However, in order to finish sixth, Spurs will have to rely on other results going their way.

The Lilywhites must beat Leicester on Sunday and hope that West Ham lose at home to Southampton to leapfrog the Hammers into the Europa League spots.

A win for Tottenham would essentially guarantee the club a seventh-place finish due to their superior goal difference.

However, Spurs could miss out on Europe altogether if they fail to win and Everton better their result or Arsenal win.

Spurs Web Opinion

If we are not going to get into the Europa League, I would rather see us finishing eighth and missing out on the Europa Conference League. However, the one thing I want Spurs to avoid is finishing below Arsenal. For that reason, I am hoping that we somehow manage to pull a win out of the bag at the King Power Stadium.
