ShareLONDON - West Bromwich Albion were relegated from the Premier League on Sunday after a 3-1 loss at Arsenal sent them straight back down to the Championship after one season in the top flight.The defeat left the Baggies in 19th place with 26 points, 10 points behind fourth-bottom Burnley with only three games left to play. It is the first time manager Sam Allardyce has suffered relegation from the Premier League during his 17 campaigns.
West Brom started brightly but struggled to move the ball into good attacking positions, and when they did they failed to get their efforts on target. Arsenal, on the other hand, put on a brilliant display of finishing to condemn them to the drop.ALSO READ: West Ham’s top-four hopes dented by Dominic Calvert-Lewin's strike for Everton
Emile Smith Rowe connected perfectly with Bukayo Saka's cross in the 29th minute to deftly volley Arsenal's opener, and Nicolas Pepe cut in from the right before curling home an unstoppable left-foot shot six minutes later.Pepe had another thumping effort saved by Sam Johnstone early in the second half and, with Saka carving West Brom open down the left, Arsenal had lots of chances to add to the score. headtopics.com
