Arsenal and Chelsea could play a playoff to decide the final automatic Champions League spot.

London – The Premier League could go into extra time.

After the final round of matches on Sunday, Arsenal and Chelsea could have to contest a playoff to determine who finishes third and claims an automatic Champions League qualification place.

Chelsea currently have a two-point lead over Arsenal. But if Arsenal beat Newcastle 2-1 and Chelsea draw 0-0 with Everton on Sunday, the teams would be level on points and have the same number of goals scored and conceded.

Premier League rules state that the teams would have to meet in a playoff on a neutral venue to decide third place.

The fourth-place finisher, which could still be Arsenal, Chelsea or Tottenham, would then have to play a Champions League qualifier in August to reach the group stage. – Sapa-AP
