Burnley have been relegated from the Premier League after losing to Tottenham, while Luton Town are also heading back down to the Championship.

Vincent Kompany’s side needed to win at Spurs on Saturday and have results elsewhere go their way to stand a chance to stay in the English top-flight.

The Clarets led through Jacob Bruun Larsen’s first-half opener but Tottenham came from behind through goals from Pedro Porro and Micky van de Ven.

Burnley, who stormed to the Championship title last season with 101 points, have only recorded five victories from 37 Premier League games.

Manager Kompany said: ‘I’m very lucky to be surrounded by good people, hardworking players, staff and fans who have backed the club for generations. That’s who we try to do it for every weekend.

‘Today the Premier League is over but tomorrow we start day one of doing everything we can to get back to the Premier League.

‘The game has gone a bit like others have gone for us this season. We created chances but the one where we missed the final pass.

‘I’m not here sulking and feeling sorry for us but if you take every game, every season as a learning experience, this is step we need to get into our game.’

Luton are on the verge of relegation after suffering a 3-1 defeat to West Ham in David Moyes’ final home game in charge of the Hammers.

The Hatters also led through Albert Sambi Lokonga’s early strike but goals from James Ward-Prowse, Tomas Soucek and George Earthy saw West Ham turn the game around and effectively send Luton down.

Rob Edwards’ side secured promotion to the Premier League through the play-offs but, like Burnley, have found life tough in the top-flight, losing 23 games.

Luton are three points from safety with one game remaining but 17th-placed Nottingham Forest have a vastly superior goal difference, meaning they are now virtually safe.

With bottom-placed Sheffield United’s relegation confirmed at the end of last month, all three promoted sides are heading back down to the Championship.

Luton striker Carlton Morris said: ‘It’s emotional. I watched the video last night that Wolves put out about mental health and it made me see how much football means to fans.

‘So going over at the end [to the Luton fans inside the London Stadium] and standing there for 10 minutes, with them clapping and screaming for us, it touches a nerve.

‘These guys work all week to come and watch us kick a football about. I can be proud of myself and my teammates and know the club is moving in the right direction.

‘We would never give up and down tools. We have been fighting against the odds, there is a clear budget difference and some quality in the division.

‘I’ve loved it. We have been competitive and the fans know that. We’ve scored a lot of goals, been in some thrillers.

‘I have learned so much this season, I’m evolving and our team is evolving. What happened to Tom Lockyer it shows how lucky we are to be in the situation we are in. I’m proud to lead this team out.’

Luton boss Edwards added: ‘I’m an emotional person and walking over to our supporters and seeing their reaction brought me to tears.

‘The love and affection they have given us, which goes both ways and is unique in football these days.

‘I feel devastated, I didn’t want to let anyone down and I feel responsible. I thanked the players and staff, they’ve given me the best 18 months of my life.’
