Leeds United have returned to the Premier League, 16 years after the club was relegated from the league. The side of Marcelo Bielsa have officially been promoted after West Bromwich Albion dropped points against Huddersfield Town on Friday.
After Leeds won 1-0 against Barnsley on Thursday, Leeds knew they needed a single point to secure promotion back to the Premier League. However, a day later West Brom surprisingly lost to Huddersfield which means that Leeds United will finish in the top two of the EFL Championship.
There are two games left to go in the Championship season and Leeds are already on a club points record of 87 points. Leeds United have been out of the Premier League for 16 seasons, even spending some time in the League One. The club have gone through 15 managers, but Marcelo Bielsa has finally achieved the long-awaited promotion.
WE ARE BACK!!! @PremierLeague
