I assume you mean if Spurs or Arsenal win the Europa. Chelsea aren't in it. Tuchel might be good, but he ain't that good.
And far be it from me to question your knowledge but are you sure about 5th place if City win it ? I thought the only way 5 teams from one country could qualify was by the 5th one winning the Europa League, and not finishing in their country's top 4. And if the 5th place IS available like that, wouldn't it also apply if Chelsea won the Champions League and also finished in the top 4 ?
I think I'll go and lie down now.
He’ll I meant Leicester .

It's late. The Tallisker is probably talking but I think I'll take the UEFA rules and regulations over Hammers News tbh.
Surely if Leicester win the Europa they qualify for the CL irrespective of where they finish in the PL? Same applies if Arsenal, Spurs or Man United win it.
I understand the scenarios where we could miss out. If, for example Everton win the F A Cup, Spurs win the Mickey Mouse and we finish 6th or lower. But I'm buggered if I can see anywhere where it says the 5th place team gets a CL place if Man City (or presumably Chelsea) win the CL and also finish top 4.
In fact if Liverpool win it and finish outside the top 4 as far as I can make out it's possible for the team finishing 5th to miss out on the Europa League.
But it's late, drink has been taken, and worrying about it is going to change absolutely fuck all, so I think a final nightcap and bed beckons.
