The Premier League is set to lose an automatic Champions League place from 2021.

The EPL along with Spain, Germany and Italy, has had four automatic places in Europe’s top club competition since last season.

Now the August play-off for the fourth-placed team in the top flight is likely to return.

“I think some of the big leagues would be fine if they are all treated in the same way.

“If you are giving four positions to the Premier League and taking one away from the Bundesliga then you have a problem.

“The big leagues are prepared to participate in this discussion for something new if they are treated the same,” Lars-Christer Olsson, the president of the European Leagues, said.
