Manchester City have blown the Premier League’s race for Champions League qualification wide open after they were banned from European club competition for the next two seasons.

The same is now expected to happen in the Premier League, meaning the fifth-placed side would get City’s Champions League spot - provided the club does not tumble out of the top four.

However, if they fail in that, it means their Champions League spot for finishing in the top four would go to the fifth-placed team in the Premier League this season.



Manchester City say they are “disappointed but not surprised” by the “prejudicial” decision and will appeal.

They, however, are just two points ahead of Tottenham in sixth, four ahead of Manchester United and even Arsenal in 10th are only eight points off them.

City have been handed down the punishment after being found to have committed “serious breaches” of Uefa’s club licensing and financial fair play regulations.

That means newly-promoted Sheffield United are currently sitting in a Champions League spot for next season.
