Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester, Sheffield United, Wolves and Arsenal will all be united for a single cause on Monday.

This is because the Court of Arbitration for Sport will be announcing their decision of Manchester City’s appeal of their two-year suspension from the Champions League.

If Manchester City lose their appeal, finishing fifth in the Premier League will secure Champions League qualification.

Manchester City were sanctioned by UEFA’s club financial control body (CFCB) for breaches of club licensing and financial fair play regulations.

CAS issued a statement on Friday evening which read: “The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will announce the decision taken in the arbitration procedure between Manchester City Football Club and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) on Monday, 13 July 2020.”

The statement added that the decision would be published on the CAS website at 10.30am Swiss time (9.30am UK).
