The FA Cup winners qualify for the group stages of the 2022-23 Europa League, as well as for the Community Shield before the start of next season’s Premier League.
But Liverpool can finish no lower than second in the Premier League so will play in the Champions League group stage next season.
And while Chelsea are not yet mathematically guaranteed a top-four finish, which secures a place in the Champions League, one more win would seal it.
At worst, Chelsea will be fifth and qualify for the Europa League via their league position.
So with the spot reserved for the FA Cup winners not needed, the teams who finish sixth and seventh in the Premier League, currently Manchester United and West Ham, would enter the Europa League and Europa Conference League respectively.
