Arsenal and Tottenham could qualify for next season’s Champions League ahead of their London rivals Chelsea if the Premier League season can no longer be completed, according to reports.
The European football’s governing body Uefa continues to discuss options to conclude the league seasons, with “a variety of calendar options” being suggested and assessed.
On Tuesday, Uefa made a U-turn stance on domestic leagues voiding their seasons after initially threatening a ban from European competition for those who did, such as Belgium’s top football division.
Should the Premier League be unable to play the remaining 92 games of the season, the Sun now claims Uefa could use coefficient scores to decide who competes in both the Champions League and Europa League next season.
Arsenal (91.000), who currently sit ninth in the Premier League, have the fourth-best coefficient in England behind Manchester City (112.000), Liverpool (99.000) and Manchester United (92.000).
However, should City’s two-year Champions League ban be upheld then Spurs would take the final Champions League spot
