Burnley and QPR relegated from Premier League

ingsBurnley and Queens Park Rangers have been relegated from the Premier League this weekend.

Hull City currently occupy the third and final place in the drop zone, while Newcastle, Sunderland, Leicester and Aston Villa are all not safe yet.

Burnley managed to beat the Tigers on Saturday, scoring their first goal since March 14th in the process. However, a 1-0 triumph over City at the KC Stadium was not enough to see Sean Dyche’s men avoid the drop.

Sunderland, Leicester and Aston Villa all won, while Newcastle earned a point against West Brom, sealing Burnley’s fate and ensuring a swift return to the Championship.

“When I see how the players have performed there is growth. I can only imagine that we will be competitive.”

Burnley are the league’s lowest goal scorers having netted just 27 times in 36 games; and only seven different players have scored for the North-West club this campaign.

QPR took on Manchester City on Sunday knowing that they needed a miracle if they were to survive. They would have to win all three of their remaining fixtures and hope results went their until the end of the season if Chris Ramsey’s men were to pull off the most unlikeliest of escape acts.

Things got worse, much worse, for the travelling fans, who saw their side demolished 6-0, condemning the Hoops to Championship football next season.

Despite the rout and relegation, Ramsey reiterated his desire to take the job as manager on a permanent basis; “I think the future looks bright for QPR apart from dropping its status at this stage of the proceedings,” Ramsey told BBC Sport after the game on Sunday.

“I think I’m capable of doing the job,” the 53 year-old continued. “I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t get the job but football is a very funny game.

“There are people who have won things who have actually got the sack so maybe it might set a different trend.”

QPR could also be facing a fine of over $50 million, too, for breaching Financial Fair Play rules.

With only two weeks to go until the end of the season, any one of five teams could join Burnley and QPR in the Championship next season.
