England holds on to CL League 4th spot

Champions-League-FinalUEFA has announced England will retain four Champions League places until at least the end of the 2017-18 season.

The Premier League had faced a challenge from Italy – which currently has only three spots – as a result of a fall in its rating in UEFA’s coefficient system.

But the progress of Manchester City and Liverpool to the quarter-finals of this season’s Champions League and Europa League respectively, while Roma, Juventus and Lazio have all been eliminated from European competition, has reversed the situation.

The news will be a big boost for the Hammers , Manchester United and Manchester City, all of whom are competing for a place in the top four with eight games remaining this season.

Arsenal fans should also be relieved as their side will be in the Champions League next season even if they slip to yet another fourth-placed finish.
