Arsenal's 2-1 win over Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup final prompted a reshuffle in English football's European places.

Despite finishing eighth in the Premier League season, Mikel Arteta's Gunners qualify for the 2020-21 Europa League campaign through their success in the FA Cup.

The fixture lists of Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers have also changed after Arsenal's Wembley triumph.

How English teams enter continental competitions in 2020-21:

Liverpool: Champions League group stage

Manchester City: Champions League group stage

Manchester United: Champions League group stage

Chelsea: Champions League group stage

Leicester City: Europa League group stage

Arsenal: Europa League group stage

Tottenham: Europa League second qualifying round. The club was set to enter the competition in the group stage before Arsenal's FA Cup win.

Wolves: Arsenal's victory means Wolves will no longer feature in the 2020-21 Europa League campaign. However, Nuno Espirito Santo's side can reach the Champions League group stage if they win the Europa League later this month. Wolves face Olympiacos in the second leg of their last-16 clash on Thursday with the score knotted at a goal apiece.
