and ’s have officially suffered relegation to the EFL Championship following Southampton 1-0 win over Swansea City.

The Baggies had some hope of staying in the Premier League next season after a five-game unbeaten run that saw them beat the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham under manager Darren Moore.

However their poor performances throughout the season made it hard for them as they were able to win just three games under managers Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew, before Moore’s takeover.

West Brom were promoted to the Premier League in the 2009/2010 season and always managed to secure a mid-table finish, their best finish was during the 2012/2013 when they ended-up in eighth. Last season they finished in a respectable tenth-placed finish which made this season a huge disappointment for the Baggies.

They became the second team to officially get relegated this season after Ramadan Sobhi’s Stoke City.

This relegation might see Hegazi leaving the club during the next summer transfer window especially if he performs well during the 2018 World Cup. As for Gabr he might finally make his first official appearance for the club against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
