Newcastle would have moved on to the Conference League and Chelsea, with their seventh-place finish, would have qualified for the Europa League if Manchester United had not won the FA Cup. The Reds ran the danger of missing European participation for the first time since the 2014–15 campaign after placing ninth.

Newcastle, which made their much anticipated Champions League return this season following a twenty-year hiatus, was severely hampered by injuries to key players. They concluded the season brilliantly, surpassing a faltering Manchester United club in the standings and winning six of their last ten league games, which allowed them to take successive trips to Europe.

Eddie Howe, the manager of Newcastle, said to BBC Sport before the FA Cup final on Saturday how much he wanted to play in European competitions again. Since the success of the club depends on these games, we want to play in them.

We have to accept the consequences of the FA Cup final, though, as we have no control over the result.”
