BURNLEY, England (AP) — Burnley was relegated from the Premier League after six seasons Sunday with a 2-1 loss at home to Newcastle that allowed rival Leeds to survive.
Burnley needed only to match Leeds' result against Brentford and for much of the second half, a draw would have been enough, something Burnley nearly achieved when Maxwel Cornet headed straight at Martin Dubravka three minutes before the end.
