Tottenham would suffer a vital financial blow by missing out on millions of pounds in European revenue if the season is decided on a points-per-game basis, according to Evening Standard.
European football’s governing body insisted that domestic campaigns would be settled on ‘sporting merit’.
Champions League places will likely be decided on a points-per-game basis if remaining matches cannot be played.
A play-off could also be held, but Premier League clubs are believed to favour PPG as the fairest method.
Thus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester and Chelsea would finish in the top four. But, as it stands, City are banned from European competition next season for breaches of financial fair play regulations, Manchester United would, therefore, take the final Champions League spot.
It would leave Spurs facing a season without European football for the first time in 10 years.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has already told fans that missing out on Champions League qualification would reduce Jose Mourinho’s ability to spend in the transfer market.
