Chelsea Make Champions League Spot After Arsenal Flop At Home To Brighton

Chelsea got a surprise slot in next season’s Champions League after London rivals Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton at the Emirates on Sunday.

The top four sides at the end of the Premier League season will gain entry into Europe’s leading club competition and this result meant third-placed Chelsea, who have 71 points, could not be overhauled by Arsenal, now on 67, with one final league game left this season for each side.

Arsenal, however, could still qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League.

The Gunners will carry a 3-1 lead into Thursday’s second leg of their semi-final away to Valencia.
