Norwich City have become the first club relegated from the Premier League this season, one season after they gained promotion from the Championship.
The Canaries lost 0-4 to West Ham on Saturday, a result which sealed their fate.
Michail Antonio scored all four goals in the encounter to give David Moyes’ men a push in their fight to avoid relegation.
There were emotional scenes at Carrow Road when referee Kevin Friend signalled the end of the match.
A number of Norwich players dropped to the ground while boss Farke consoled his team.
The result was a seventh successive league defeat, which left Daniel Farke’s side anchored at the foot of the table, 13 points from safety with only three games – and a maximum nine points – to play.
Norwich’s dreadful form since the Premier League resumed after being suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic meant it was a matter of when – not if – they would be relegated
Their 24th league defeat came after an abject performance, with the Canaries failing to score for a league-high 17th game this season.
However, West Ham’s first Premier League away win under David Moyes lifts them six points above the relegation zone.
Two of their remaining three matches are at home to fellow strugglers Watford and Aston Villa.
