Leicester City, founded 1884

The Foxes kept their side of the bargain by beating West Ham 2-1 at the King Power, and they would have stayed up if Bournemouth had scored an equalizer on Merseyside.
Leicester’s relegation comes just seven years after they won the Premier League title. Their fate was sealed on the final day of the season despite beating West Ham 2-1, finishing two points behind Everton who themselves beat Bournemouth to stay in the division.

As for Leeds, they were beaten 4-1 by Tottenham at Elland Road to end their three-year stay in the top flight. Leeds will also be playing Championship football next season after finishing five points behind the Toffees.
