Leicester City have been relegated from the Premier League 7 years after the club’s miraculous title triumph. Everton, on the other hand, pulled off another last-day escape to extend its 69-year stay.

Leeds always looked destined for the drop and a shambolic display at home against Tottenham confirmed it.

Premier League final day drama

Big Sam couldn’t save Leeds from relegation, picking up a miserly one point from an available 12 in his time in charge at Elland Road.

Everton’s 1-0 win over Bournemouth meant Leicester’s 2-1 victory against West Ham was ultimately meaningless. 

Leicester’s demise stands out because of the dramatic nature of the club’s decline after experiencing the finest period in the club’s history.

By winning the title in 2016, the Foxes provided the Premier League with its greatest fairy tale. Crowned champions only a second season after being promoted from the second tier. 

Leicester City have been relegated from the Premier League

Just two years ago Leicester, led by the now-forgotten Brendan Rodgers were celebrating victory against Chelsea in the FA Cup final and next season they will be playing in the second tier.

The battle for European football

Elsewhere Manchester United achieved third place with a win over Fulham at Old Trafford.

Chelsea and Frank Lampard avoided defeat against Newcastle. 

Aston Villa were the success story of the final day as they finished 7th to qualify for Europe next season.

Unai Emery has truly done an excellent job at Villa Park and deserves all the credit.

Liverpool played an eight-goal thriller against relegated Southampton who could have used those goals earlier in the season and Manchester City’s B-team lost 1-0 to Brentford.
