Aina Benched, Maja In Action As Fulham’s Relegation Confirmed After Defeat To Burnley

24


Fulham were relegated from the Premier League after a 2-0 home defeat by Burnley that saw the Clarets secure their top-flight status for another season.

Fulham have now joined Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion as the three clubs to drop into the Championship.

Super Eagles defender Ola Aina, who is on loan from Torino, was an unused substitute against Burnley while Josh Maja, also on loan from Bordeaux, came on in the 54th minute.

The damage was done before the break as Burnley struck twice in the final 10 minutes of the first half at Craven Cottage.

First the Clarets hit their hosts on the counter-attack as Matej Vydra showed neat footwork before picking out Ashley Westwood to roll the ball into an empty net.

Chris Wood then lashed in a second from the edge of the area to score his 50th goal for Burnley and consign Fulham to the drop.

It leaves Scott Parker’s side 10 points from safety with three games remaining and heading back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Burnley, who will play Premier League football for the sixth successive season, climb to 14th in the table.
