There are two Europa League spots available to English clubs. One goes to the team which finishes fifth in the Premier League, the second goes to the side which wins the FA Cup.
The Europa Conference League will give more clubs a taste of European football, particularly sides from countries which struggle to qualify for the other two UEFA competitions. But there’s a spot up for grabs for English clubs, too.
Europa League quarterfinal first leg results
The winner of the Carabao Cup was guaranteed to qualify for the Europa Conference League play-off round. But after Manchester City lifted the trophy for a fourth consecutive season – having already secured a place in the Champions League qualifying spot – their place in the Europa Conference League will be passed on to the next highest-ranked Premier League side which has not qualified for a UEFA competition.
