Our 3-0 victory over Everton on Sunday didn’t just help Chelsea maintain our four-point gap at the top of the table, it also sealed Champions League qualification for next year.

Following our 3-0 win over Everton, Chelsea are now guaranteed passage into the Champions League in 2017/18 and the Blues will earn a minimum of £10.7million from UEFA for our participation and a maximum of £48m if we win the competition.

With 15 points separating Chelsea and fourth-placed Manchester City, Chelsea are guaranteed qualification for the group stage of the Champions League next season irrespective of what happens between now and the end of the season.

Four other teams in Europe have also qualified for the Champions League in 2017/18 season and they are Real Madrid, Barcelona, Basel and Bayern Munich.
