Huddersfield Town have been relegated from the Premier League courtesy of a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Terriers have endured a dreadful second season in the top flight and were condemned to the drop by Luka Milivojevic’s penalty and a Patrick van Aanholt strike.

Their loss combined with wins for Burnley and Southampton over Wolves and Brighton and Hove Albion respectively left them 19 points adrift of safety with six games remaining.

After earning promotion via the play-offs in 2016-17, Huddersfield sensationally avoided relegation back to the Championship under David Wagner.

However, they struggled to replicate their impressive performances of 2017-18 and Wagner left the club last January with Huddersfield eight points shy of 17th. They have won just one game under his replacement Jan Siewert, who can now look ahead to the prospect of a Championship campaign next term.

The Terriers’ joined Derby County as the only clubs to be relegated from the Premier League before the end of March.
