Tottenham’s 3-1 away defeat at Leeds United last Saturday now means the club will most likely be without Champions League football for the second consecutive year.

They are currently eight points ahead of Chelsea in fourth place, three games are still to be played and it will take a great miracle to secure a top four place. A win for the Blues on Wednesday night at home against Arsenal means that it is mathematically no longer possible for Spurs to qualify for Europe’s most important competition.

That means that attention will be focused on ending the season strong to secure a spot in the Europa League. From the 2021/22 season, however, there will be a third European competition in which the Europa Conference League starts.

Since fifth place guarantees a place in the Europa League and sixth place is currently also sufficient to qualify for the competition with the FA Cup finalists Chelsea and Leicester City to get into the top five, the team would, which occupies seventh place in the table, the third-placed European tournament will go to UEFA.

From today’s perspective, Tottenham would play in the European Conference League from next season.

There is still a lot to play in the final games of the current season, however, and the table could change significantly by the final whistle on Sunday 23 May.

Football.London takes a look at the remaining games in the running for a place in the Europa League.

Tottenham – 56 points

16/05 – wolves (H)

19/05 – Aston Villa (H)

Tottenham have two games at home but they have to play so much better than they did at Elland Road to get maximum points on the board.

Playing Leicester away on the final day is difficult but the fact that the Foxes may have qualified for the Champions League by then could help them.

Chelsea – 64 points

12/05 – Arsenal (H)

18/05 – Leicester City (H)

05/23 – Aston Villa (A)

Chelsea want to achieve a top four result after an excellent run under Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea would really have to break down in the last three games if they missed a top four result.

That just looks so unlikely at the moment and three points against Arsenal on Wednesday night will put them in a position where only Liverpool can really catch them with their extra game.

West Ham – 58 points

15/05 – Brighton & Hove Albion (A)

19/05 – West Brom (A)

23/05 – Southampton (H)

West Ham’s home defeat to Everton on Saturday night gave them a hammer blow in hopes of landing in the Champions League.

An end to the Europa League would still be an excellent season for David Moyes’ side though, with three winnable games coming up to secure European football.

Liverpool – 57 points

13/05 – Manchester United (A)

16/05 – West Brom (A)

19/05 – Burnley (A)

23/05 – Crystal Palace (H)

Liverpool have some nice games ahead of them in the last few weeks of the season

Liverpool have some nice games ahead of them in the last few weeks of the season

Jurgen Klopp’s men currently have one game in hand but it is extremely difficult with a trip to Manchester United on Thursday night.

The Reds have three potentially friendly games after that, but consistency will be key and that has worried them all year.

Everton – 55 points

13.05. – Aston Villa (A)

16/05 – Sheffield United (H)

19/05 – wolves (H)

05/23 – Man City (A)

Everton is also an absolute eye-catcher for a place in the Europa League, as there is a game in hand on Thursday at the Aston Villa.

Confidence in the game at Villa Park will be high this season due to their excellent form on the road, while at home they have two games ahead of them that they should win despite their problems at Goodison Park.

The Toffees may need something more on the final day of Man City if they are to finish in either fifth or sixth place given their rivals’ remaining games.
