Rules for classification: 1st points; 2nd goal difference; 3rd number of goals scored.
(C) = Champion; (R) = Relegated; (P) = Promoted; (O) = Play-off winner; (A) = Advances to a further round; (Q) = Qualified to the phase of tournament

a. The fourth-placed team will play in the Europa League group stage instead of the Champions League group stage if Chelsea wins the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League, Arsenal or Manchester United win the 2020–21 UEFA Europa League, and both winners finish in fifth place or lower.
b. Since both 2020–21 FA Cup finalists (Leicester City and Chelsea) would currently qualify for European competition based on league position, the Europa League group stage berth awarded to the FA Cup winners would pass to the sixth-placed team.
c. Since 2020–21 EFL Cup winners Manchester City have qualified for European competition based on league position, the Europa Conference League berth awarded to the EFL Cup winners will transfer to the highest-placed Premier League team who have not already qualified for European competition, which is currently the seventh-placed team.
