Sam Allardyce suffers relegation on Sunday night – and Fulham could be next in 24 hours time

West Brom have officially been relegated from the Premier League.

For the first time in his career as a top flight manager, former Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce has failed to secure Premier League safety, with the Baggies’ 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on Sunday night sealing their fate.

West Brom went into the game 10 points adrift with three games remaining, meaning the loss is the final nail in the coffin for their survival hopes, handing them an immediate return to the second tier.

With Sheffield United already gone, the third and final spot could be decided on Monday Night Football should Fulham lose to 17th place Burnley at Craven Cottage.

Scott Parker’s side are currently sat 27 points with four games remaining, so a defeat to Sean Dyche’s side (36 points) would make it mathematically impossible for them to survive.

Here’s the table as of Sunday night, showing us 12 clear of the drop zone and up in 14th following our shock win over Leicester on Friday:
