Burnley’s fate in the Premier League was sealed on the penultimate week of the season as they faced defeat against Tottenham, confirming their relegation from the top flight. The Clarets suffered a 2-1 loss, leaving them five points adrift of safety compared to Nottingham Forest, with only one game left in the season.

Vincent Kompany’s team, akin to Sheffield United, now joins the category of clubs experiencing a swift exit from the Premier League after just one season.

The critical blow came with Burnley’s defeat to Tottenham, solidifying their position in the bottom three of the league standings. Prior to this decisive match, Burnley found themselves in a precarious situation, trailing behind relegation-threatened rivals Luton Town and Nottingham Forest.

Last week’s crushing 4-1 defeat at home against Newcastle further compounded Burnley’s plight, leaving them with a significant points gap and a goal difference that significantly lagged behind Nottingham Forest’s.

Heading into the clash against Tottenham, Kompany’s side required not only a victory but also relied on other match outcomes, including a potential win for Chelsea against Nottingham Forest. However, their hopes were dashed with the defeat to Spurs, rendering the outcome of the City Ground match irrelevant.
