No decision until end of season, says Hazard over Chelsea exit

Champions League: Manchester United players facing 25% cut in their wages

And Hazard said Chelsea are determined to secure their goal of returning to the Champions League after missing out on this season's competition.

With the Champions League winners and Europa League winners guaranteed a place in the 2019-20 Champions League, is it possible that England could have as many as six representatives in the competition?

Watford can only qualify into the Europa League if they defeat Man City in the FA Cup final but if the reverse be the case, the seventh placed team in the league will go through to the Europa league.

"Chelsea has to play in Champions League every year, but it's hard because we are not the only team that is trying to play Champions League".

Ex-England national team manager Hodgson was appointed manager at Crystal Palace after four games into last season.

And Real will pounce for France star Pogba if United drop back into the Europa League - as they did under Louis van Gaal in 2015-16, the season before Jose Mourinho's arrival.

The win over the Magpies has ensured that Crystal Palace will play Premier League football for another season.

But if winners finish outside the top four, it will mean five English teams will be in the Champions League group stages.

Until 2005, winners did not qualify automatically until when Liverpool won the tournament but did not finish in the top four.

If a Premier League club won the Champions League and failed to finish in the top four domestically, however, they would be invited to play in the competition next season.

The European governing body changed the rules, in 2012 Tottenham finished fourth but missed out because Chelsea won the Champions League.

The Red Devils now sit sixth in the Premier League, whilst they must go through Barcelona if they are to keep their dreams of winning the Champions League alive.

The same logic applies to the Europa League, which offers a Champions League spot to the winners.
