Manchester City are understood to be surprised that Liverpool are reportedly involved in a bid to stop them playing in the Champions league next season.

However, City chiefs were surprised at Liverpool's involvement in the group action, according to the Express.

Assuming City finish the current Premier League campaign in the top four, if they are not allowed to compete in the Champions League next season their place would go to the team finishing fifth.

City are still allowed to compete in this season's Champions League, although it it yet to be seen whether the competition will actually be completed amid the coronavirus crisis.

The Reds are a whopping 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League and in no danger of not qualifying for next season's Champions League themselves - provided the competition goes ahead amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But the rest of the Premier League's top 10 - with the exception of Sheffield United - have reportedly written to CAS to outline their objections to City being allowed to play in the Champions League while their appeal is ongoing.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal et al fear that City could ask to have their punishment deferred while the appeal process is underway - and with delays likely due to the coronavirus pandemic, that could see Pep Guardiola's side compete in next season's Champions League.
