The 2022-23 Premier League season officially wrapped up on Sunday, with Leeds United and Leicester City joining Southampton as the teams that have been relegated from the top flight.

Both Leeds and Leicester entered the final match day with slim chances to retain their place in Premier League but ended up not fulfilling the goal.

Leeds suffered a heavy 1-4 loss to Tottenham Hotspur that saw them finish at No. 19 in the standings with 31 points. This means they will return to Championship after three years.

Leicester, on the other hand, managed to get a 2-1 win over West Ham United in their final match. However, this wasn’t enough to help them jump over Everton at No. 17, who took care of the business with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth.

Leicester returned to the Premier League during 2014–15 and has since enjoyed one of the most successful periods in club history. They won the Premier League in 2015–16 and lifted the FA Cup in 2021.

Burnley and Sheffield United have previously secured a spot in Premier League next season by finishing first and second in Championship, respectively. They will be joined by Luton Town, which got the last promotion spot by getting a win over Coventry in Championship promotion playoffs over the weekend.
