Tottenham could clinch Champions League place if season is cancelled

Tottenham Hotspur stand a chance of clinching a Champions League spot if the current season is cancelled and Manchester City’s ban is upheld. This claim comes from a report from The Sun.

Tottenham are currently eighth in the Premier League table, seven points off of fourth-placed Chelsea. However, because of the coronavirus, the season is suspended currently.

There is little idea about when footballing action might resume. And should it be deemed that there is no way to continue and the season is cancelled, UEFA have been urged to order associations to use UEFA coefficient scores to decide which teams play in respective competitions next term (h/t The Sun).

Such a situation would see the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal join Liverpool in the Champions League. Our club would be in the Europa League with Chelsea and Leicester. This is because Tottenham are fifth in England’s coefficient table, with 85 points. (h/t The Sun).

However, FIFA has handed Manchester City a two-year European ban for FFP violations. And while the Cityzens have appealed against the decision, should the ban be upheld, Tottenham would automatically take their place in Europe’s premier competition (h/t The Sun).

As appealing as it sounds, it would be better if we fought our way into the top four once the season returns. With eight games remaining, scaling a seven-point gap is not a big ask. Especially, considering that our big-hitters Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and other injured players are likely to be fit and firing by the time the season resumes.

As things stand, the Premier League remains committed to completing the season (h/t The Sun). But should it be cancelled, things might actually end up working in our favour.
