Middlesbrough relegated from the Premier League
Middlesbrough have been relegated from the Premier League for a record breaking 4th time.
Middlesbrough knew that defeat against Chelsea would see them mathematically relegated from the Premier League for a 4th time, more than any other team in Premier League history.
Chelsea won the match 3-0 to relegate Middlesbrough and in the process moving themselves within 3 points of the Premier League title.
Middlesbrough captain Ben Gibson described his relegation as the "lowest point" of his life. "After the highs of last season, to be honest we've wasted an opportunity to play in the best league in the world," said defender Gibson. "We have to reflect and try to put it right."
