a. Manchester City were initially banned from all UEFA club competitions for the 2020–21 and 2021–22 seasons by the UEFA Club Financial Control Body on 14 February 2020 due to alleged breaches of the UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations. The decision was appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on 26 February 2020. That appeal was heard on 8 June 2020. The appeal was upheld on 13 July 2020, and the ban was overturned.
b. Since the winners of the 2019–20 EFL Cup, Manchester City, have qualified for the Champions League group stage by league position, the spot given to the EFL Cup winners (Europa League second qualifying round) is passed down to the sixth-placed team.
