Arsenal and Tottenham could ‘beat Chelsea to Champions League football’ with proposed Uefa rule change
Arsenal and Tottenham could qualify for next season’s Champions League before Chelsea if the Premier League campaign is unable to be finished, consistent with reports.

European football’s administration Uefa continues to debate options to conclude the league seasons, with “a sort of calendar options” being assessed.

On Tuesday, Uefa softened their stance on domestic leagues voiding their seasons after initially threatening a ban from European competition for those that did, like Belgium’s top flight.

Should the Premier League be unable to play the remaining 92 games of the season, 




the Sun now claim Uefa could use coefficient scores to make a decision who competes in both the Champions League and Europa League next season.

Arsenal (91.000), who currently sit ninth within the Premier League, 

have the fourth-best coefficient in England behind Manchester City (112.000), Liverpool (99.000) and Manchester United (92.000).

Tottenham (85.000), who are eighth within the league, sit fifth and Chelsea (83.000), who are fourth, 

are sixth. Leicester City (22.000), third within the league, are a distance seventh. they might need to accept the Europa League.

However, should City’s two-year Champions League ban be upheld then Spurs would take the ultimate Champions League spot.
