Arsenal are set for a considerable windfall soon after a top-two finish was confirmed in the Premier League this weekend.

Thanks to the Gunners' 1-0 victory over Manchester United, sealed by a Leandro Trossard strike, Mikel Arteta's team can no longer be caught by Liverpool even if the Merseyside club win both of their remaining matches. Of course, this means that Arsenal shall finish the season either first or second in the table with both spots offering big cash incentives.

Ahead of Manchester City's trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday evening, the Gunners are favourites to finish second in the Premier League. Should they miss out on the title, they will bank a whopping £59.1m in prize money based on the sums from last season.

However, should they manage to pip Pep Guardiola's men to the silverware, they will cash £62.3m from the top flight. While both sums will do wonders to the club's transfer budgets, qualification to the Champions League will provide the biggest financial boost to Arsenal.

By virtue of simply qualifying for the league phase of the tournament, Arsenal will bank £13.5m based on the figures from this season. However, the opportunity to earn more money in the competition rapidly increases the better the team does.

For each victory in the first round of matches in the Champions League proper, Arsenal will secure £2.4m while a draw shall earn them £800,000. So while the Premier League prize money is a good addition to the coffers, the added perk of Champions League football could be just as lucrative.
