Notably, with the increase of four teams in the UEFA Champions League for the 2024-25 season, one more team from the Premier League, five in total, could make their way to Europe's elite club football competition. With that, the fifth-place team in the Premier League might secure UCL football, if it has the best individual club coefficient from the champion's path.

According to the Opta Supercomputer, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Tottenham have the best chance to secure the four guaranteed  UEFA Champions League places in the Premier League. The defending champions Manchester City have a massive 99.93 per cent chance of clinching the UCL spot in the domestic club competition, while the percentage for Liverpool sits at 91.11 and for Arsenal, it is 82.43.

Then, there is a major drop in numbers with the percentage for Tottenham to reach the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, in fourth place, standing at 31.68. Manchester United are expected to finish in fifth place in the Premier League, which is outside the guaranteed spot for the UCL, at 28.42 per cent.

Brighton could get sixth place in the Premier League with a 20.27 per cent chance in Europe, while Newcastle boasts 16.69 per cent behind them. Chelsea could be outside the top 10 spots in the domestic club competition in 11th place, with just a 2.1 per cent chance of UCL next season.
