Fulham's progress to the Europa League final has given relegated Burnley an unexpected boost.
Should Roy Hodgson's side lift the trophy they would qualify as holders next season, meaning Burnley would be in pole position in the Fair Play League. With Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea all set to qualify for Europe via their league placing, only Fulham are ahead of them in the table.
Burnley manager Brian Laws said: "There is an outside chance and that depends on how Fulham go on. If they win the competition we have a chance of slipping in there."
Laws added: "That would be fantastic for the club and the town. It is a long shot but we will wait and see what happens."
