Norwich and Newcastle were both relegated from the Premier League tonight after Sunderland’s 3-0 win over Everton saw Sunderland move into safety.
Norwich were also in action tonight and despite winning 4-2 at home to Watford the Canaries will return to the Championship. Newcastle’s failure to beat already relegated Aston Villa at the weekend took their faith out of their hands. Rivals Sunderland produced home wins over Chelsea and Everton to remain in the Premier League for another season while condemning Newcatle and Norwich to the drop.
Newcatle escaped relegation last season but Steve McLaren failed to improve the sides former before being sacked. Rafa Benietez took over but he too was unable to turn around the fortunes of the Geordies.
Norwich gained promotion last season via the playoffs defeating Middlesborough in the final.
