How long have Burnley been in the Premier League?- Will the Clarets finally be relegated?

Burnley have made themselves to be a sturdy Premier League team over the years. Sean Dyche’s men typify a rugged approach to the beautiful game and no matter what form they are in, Burnley always make themselves to be a tough nut to crack at Turf Moor.

But this season, it looks like that run could finally end. Burnley are in the relegation zone right now after their defeat to Manchester United, leading fans to wonder when the club first came to the Premier League. Alley Sport has the answer for you.

How long have Burnley been in the Premier League?

Burnley have been in the Premier League since the 2016/17 season. That was the last time they won promotion in the Championship and from that season, have been a mainstay in the PL.

They finished 16th in their first season back from the Championship and barely survived in the league. But the following season, in 2017/18, they enjoyed their best-ever PL finish of 7th. Since then, they have been on a downfall but have always managed to survive in the PL.

The 54 point tally was repeated from Burnley in the 2019/20 season but they could only manage a 10th-place finish then, showing the increase in competitiveness in the league since the time they came back.

Will Burnley be relegated from the Premier League in the 2021/22 season?

Burnley may be relegated from the PL this season. They are currently 18th in the table with just 11 points. The Clarets have, however, played just 16 games in the league this season as all their PL games between 13th December and 29th December were postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Watford are above them and so are Leeds United. The latter has played 17 games while Marcelo Bielsa’s side has played 18. A win their game in hand would mean Burnley overtake these teams, but it seems tough for them to survive. However, they have dug themselves out of deeper holes in the past and it remains to be seen if they can repeat it again this time.
