Aston Villa could help Manchester United qualify for UCL next season Despite all their failures Manchester United still have a sliver of hope regarding UCL qualification for next season. UEFA will be expanding the competition and the best-performing clubs have a chance of earning an extra spot for their respective leagues.

However, most clubs from England have already been knocked out of European competitions. Italy are currently in the lead and Germany is a close second but England could overtake them and earn an extra spot for next season.

Aston Villa beat Lille on penalties to advance in the Europa Conference League and are now the only club from England who are still hanging on in European competitions. It has been a disaster for the other clubs.
