Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool could challenge Manchester City's Champions League qualification for next season. The Mail on Sunday says they could use UEFA small print to challenge Manchester City's right to play in the Champions League next season.

The rules now effectively set up a scenario where rivals can claim City have cheated their way to passing UEFA's 'Financial Fair Play' (FFP) test.

It is understood lawyers for a host of 'major clubs' are aware of these potential rights to make appeals - thanks to recently amended Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations - and are monitoring the situation closely.
