Who will be playing in the UCL next season?

News Insights

  • The top 4 sides in the Premier League will be playing in the Champions League next season.
  • Liverpool, Arsenal, and Manchester City look to have secured their top 4 spots.
  • Aston Villa are currently sat in 4th place, with their UCL destiny in their own hands.
  • Tottenham are leading the charge in behind them.

Over the past few seasons, the race to finish inside the top 4 places in the Premier League has gone down to the wire. 
With the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United all missing out on UCL football frequently over the past decade, the competition remains as fierce as ever. 
Aston Villa and Tottenham look to be locked in a real battle to finish in the top 4 and it looks set to go all the way to the wire for EPL betting sites and punters. 

Vim, Vigor and Villa 

Whilst Unai Emery is one of the best managers in European football, very few people expected Aston Villa to challenge for a top 4 spot this season. 
With a Europa Conference League campaign to manage too, Villa’s squad has been tested to the max, but they look to be firmly hanging on to their top 4 spot. 
There is plenty of football to be played at Villa Park, but it has been a memorable campaign, regardless of how it pans out from here. 
Awesome Ange 

Tottenham’s plight last season was epitomized by their lack of European football in this campaign. 
With Harry Kane departed for Bayern Munich, not many people expected Spurs to be in the mix for a top 4 spot come the end of the season. 
However, Tottenham have been one of the most entertaining sides in the league this term and they are firmly in the hunt for a top 4 spot with all EPL betting sites
Will it matter? 

One of the curious backdrops to this race for the top 4 is the fact that the side that finishes 5th could actually be playing Champions League football next season. 
Such is the consistency and success of English teams in Europe that the Premier League has the highest coefficient across the continent and consequently, 5 English sides could be in the Champions League next year. 
With 36 teams in the Champions League next year rather than 32, another English side could well be in the competition but neither Aston Villa or Tottenham will want to finish any lower than the top 4.
