I think the champions are automatic, runners up via the qualifiers
There are essentially seven places in European football available for the EPL. Top four get the Champions League, fifth gets the Europa League and the other two Europa League places go to the winners of the two domestic cups (League Cup and FA Cup) The "top six" do not automatically get European football. Lets assume that 1-4 qualify for the CL from their league position only (i.e. not as a result of winning it that season) and fifth place qualifies for the Europa League in the same way. If fifteenth in the League wins the FA Cup and say even a team from the Championship wins the League Cup then those are the teams that qualify. If the teams that finish in fifth and sixth have won both the cups, then a place in the Europa League (that vacated by fifth) goes to seventh. In simple terms, three teams qualify. Which teams they are depends on winners of the domestic cups. This season Chelsea won the FA Cup and have finished sixth, therefore they, Liverpool (who won the League Cup) and fifth place (whoever that may end up being) will qualify. Had Chelsea finished fifth, the sixth place teams takes their Europa League place. There is however, no 6th place Europa League qualifying spot.
The Premiership is the top league in England. It is considered by many to be the best league in the world. The Premiership consists of 20 teams.
there is 21 teams in the premier league if not there is either 22,21or20
in england, 4 teams can qualify to the champions league.
there are three preliminary groups every year before the champions league starts, that are played during the summer: in the 1st 28 teams play 2 matches h&a, in the 2nd the 14 teams that won in the previous group challenge other 14 teams, and in the 3rd the remaining 14 teams are put together with other 18 teams; the 16 teams that win the 3rd group are put together with the 8 teams that got the better results in their own leagues, an so it is reached the number of 24, which are divided in 8 groups of 4 teams, that is when the Champion's League really begins.
