West Brom relegated after defeat by Arsenal

West Bromwich Albion were relegated from the Premier League on Sunday after they lost 3-1 away to Arsenal.

The defeat left Sam Allardyce’s side in 19th place with 26 points, 10 points behind fourth-bottom Burnley with only three games left to play.

Emile Smith Rowe deftly volleyed Arsenal’s opener in the 29th minute and Nicolas Pepe cut in from the right before curling home an unstoppable left-foot shot six minutes later.

Matheus Pereira pulled one back for the visitors in the 67th after a surging run but Willian’s free kick in the 90th minute wrapped up the points as West Brom manager Sam Allardyce suffered relegation from the Premier League for the first time.

His side will join basement club Sheffield United, who are already down, in the Championship next season.
