Team names in bold indicates the club is a current Premier League member

^[a] Chelsea won the 2011–12 UEFA Champions League, pursuant to the rules in effect at the time, only four clubs from the Premier League could play in the Champions League. This meant that Tottenham, who would usually qualify for the Champions League with a 4th place Premier League finish, were relegated to the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League instead.

^[b] Originally Portsmouth qualified for the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League as FA Cup runners-up, replacing the Champions League-qualified Chelsea. However, they failed to apply for a UEFA license. Therefore, Liverpool took their place.
