You can have 5 qualifiers for CL. 4 by league position and 1 (who is outside of that league position) who won CL or EL. It's only if BOTH the CL and EL champions come from the same league and are out of qualifying league position that you'd lose the spot for that 4th team (because you can't put 6 into the CL).

Or when they win it and finish 5th and keeper Arsenal or Chelsea or ManU out of CL.
In this scenario, one of Arsenal or Chelsea would also have won the Europa league (which does look pretty likely at this point), but would knock out a 4th place finisher if it was ManU or non-winning Europa team between Arsenal and Chelsea.

I would love an Arsenal-Chelsea EL Final where the winner makes the CL and the loser gets diddly-squat (I don't think that's possible though, right - loser is going to go to the EL either way right?).

And of course, to maximize ticket sales, these London cross-town rivals will thus square off in... Azerbaijan?
