Arsenal, Man City, and Chelsea have just been dumped out from the great Champions League at the last 16 stage, which leaves only Everton to gain victory in the Europe league alone. However, will the failures in Premier League have influential effect on the fourth Champions league place? Here, we expound the world of coefficients.
Will the Premier League always procure the fourth Champions League place?
The answer will probably be an absolute NO. that coveted fourth position in the Premier League, which had been occupied by Arsenal for the last four years, is known to be privilege since the 2001/2002 season. In order to maintain fairness, UEFA handed out Champions league places which depend on how a certain country has performed in the previous five years. In this regard, the premier league had eight champions league finalists in the last eight seasons between 2005 and 2012 during which they won three trophies. Yet, the events of the last two-and-a-half years start to accrue threats to ruin all that hard work consistently established by the Premiere League finalists.
Why are people now claiming that Premier League can soon lose a spot in the Champions league?
England teams’ underwhelming records in Europe this year has been highlighted. This is due to the fact that Arsenal ad Man City had been dumped out of the Champions league at the last 16 stage. And, it also happened to Chelsea FC the week before. The Reds wet out at the group stage and were then defeated out of the Europa League round of 32, which then was followed by Tottenham Hotspurs. Hull City has failed to reach the group stages in the Europa League. This means that only Everton are the only team left in Europe’s second caste competition.
Which Countries will secure which Places?
At the moment, the top three ranked countries—Spain, Germany, and England—are given four Champions League spots, while the other three countries—Italy, France, and Portugal—are only given three places in the league. With the performances shown by the England team in the recent Champions league fixtures, which was way far from being satisfying, there is no doubt that the England will probably lose its four-places in the Champions league. As we all know, the countries are ranked with respect to the coefficient score, which is based on points secured from performance in the Europa league and Champions league.
