Burnley bow out of the Premier League

Vincent Kompany’s first season as a Premier League manager didn’t go to plan as his Burnley side were relegated back to the Championship.

After starting the campaign with just one point from their opening six matches and just one win and 11 losses in their first 13 games of the season, the drop was always looking likely. However after a an upturn in form from the beginning of March that saw them lose just one of their eight games (W2 D5), hope was renewed for a possible great escape, but that was not to be. Back-to-back defeats to Newcastle and Tottenham confirmed their relegation and not they must re-build and go again in the future.

Nottingham Forest meanwhile, have all but secured their place in the top flight. A point would be enough to officially book their spot in the Premier League for 2024/25, but with Luton needing to overturn a huge swing in goal difference, even if they do lose this match they should be safe.

The Tricky Trees have picked up 19 points from 20 games since Nuno Espirito Santo was appointed on the 20th December last year and have had mixed results under their new manager, but it’s been enough to ensure a place in the league next season.
