Just need West Ham to do the business and ensure none of the old guard are getting the cup.

Add that in to the Premier League and this is becoming a joyful season

Urghzil already hiding and nearly getting an assist for the Spanish side.

Clearly that's why they offloaded Sanchez.

Apart from this lot who just seem to enter it for the money with no intention of winning it.

Imaginary situation..if Chelsea had the Champions league this season despite a lowly domestic league finish,and Tottenham won both the Premiership and the Europa league,what two domestic clubs would miss out?

Assuming the EL spot would go to the EL runner up if the winner already qualified, then Chelsea would get in as the CL winner and places 1-3 in the PL would get in

As standard, the 4 PL spots in the CL go to the CL winner if they are English and places 1-3 in the league. If the CL winner is not English then places 1-4 in the PL get in.

TBF my guess is that it's like the league cup and if the winner doesn't use the prize then nobody gets it (so not strictly like the league cup)

Although I don't know how this would affect the number of teams required in next year's CL, one less qualifier for somebody I guess?

The numbers of teams do change by one or two each season so probably.
