Fulham were relegated from the Premier League on Monday after goals from Ashley Westwood and Chris Wood gave Burnley a 2-0 win at Craven Cottage.

The defeat left Fulham in 18th spot on 27 points, 10 behind Southampton with three games left to play, while Burnley rose from 17th to 14th on 39 points.

Burnley went ahead in the 35th minute when Matej Vydra pulled the ball back for Westwood to steer home. They were soon two up thanks to Wood, who rifled Josh Brownhill’s return pass into the top right corner a minute before halftime.

Despite plenty of possession, Fulham failed to create many decent scoring chances and will join West Bromwich Albion, who were relegated on Sunday after losing to Arsenal, and bottom side Sheffield United in the Championship next season.
