The Fulham by Kenny Tete and Terence Kongolo will play in the Championship next season. The Cottagers lost on Monday night with 0-2 from Burnley and can no longer avoid degradation.
Tete was a base player on the London side, but could not prevent his team from running into two hits in peace. Ashley Westwood and Chris Wood scored for Burnley and that team managed to maintain that margin in the second half, making the degradation for Fulham a definite fact. The players of Craven Cottage got promoted to the highest level last year.
The two Dutch people could bring little to prevent degradation this season. Tete, which was taken over from Olympique Lyon last summer, played in sixteen Premier League matches from the start. Kongolo made an even smaller contribution due to injury release: he took action in just two official duels.
Due to the degradation of Fulham, all three teams that play a step lower next season are already known. Earlier, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United had to stop the battle. Their seats are taken by Norwich City and Watford, who are promoted directly from the Championship. Third ticket is for Brentford, Swansea, Barnsley or Bournemouth. They play playoffs.
