Saints are back in Europe!

By SFC Media time Sun 15 May Club

Southampton Football Club have qualified for next season’s Europa League following their final day 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace at St Mary’s.

The win, along with results elsewhere which saw Liverpool draw 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion and West Ham lose 2-1 at Stoke means Saints will finish the season in at least sixth place in the Barclays Premier League table.

With Manchester United’s game against AFC Bournemouth still to play, Saints could in fact finish as high as fifth if the Cherries beat Louis van Gaal’s men at Old Trafford when that match is rearranged.

By finishing in the top-six, Saints have recorded their best ever Premier League finish to go alongside their highest ever points tally in the Premier League which now stands at 63.

Qualification to the Europa League via their league position means Saints could head straight into the group stages of the competition.

However, if they drop to sixth and Crystal Palace win the FA Cup, then Saints will go in at the third qualifying round.
