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."
