Norwich City have been relegated from the Premier League following their 2-0 loss to Aston Villa.

Dean Smith’s men have fallen to defeat against his former side which coupled with Burnley’s 2-1 win over Watford means the Canaries have now dropped down into the Championship.

Norwich knew it would be a long shot to stay in England’s top-flight heading into today’s match but the defeat made it official as it’s confirmed they will play Championship football next season.

Ollie Watkins gave Steven Gerrard’s men the lead just before halftime, before Villa sealed the three points as Emi Buendia set up Danny Ings in stoppage time to secure the three points.

It was Burnley’s turnaround that sealed their fate however as they came from behind against Watford to claim a dramatic 2-1 win at Vicarage Road.

James Tarkowski’s own goal gave the Hornets the lead in the first half before Jack Cork and Josh Brownhill netted a late double to turn the game on its head with Burnley securing a vital three points.

Burnley are now five points from safety as they leapfrogged Leeds United in the table who take on reigning champions Manchester City on Saturday evening at Elland Road.

Watford, on the other hand, are odds on to join Norwich in the Championship after letting their slip against Burnley as they sit on 22 points with four games left.

The result is terrible news for Everton as well who are five points adrift of safety, but have a game in hand over Burnley. The Toffees host Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
