Southampton has been confirmed relegated from the Premier League for the first time in 11 years, MySportDab reports.

The Saints needed a win against Fulham today to retain hopes of maintaining their place in the topflight next season.

Right in front of their home fans, Southampton suffered a defeat against Fulham and their relegation has now been confirmed.

The club have been handled by three different managers this season as signs of rot showed early in the season.

Ralph Hasenhuttl took charge of the team from the start of the season before he was sacked due to a dismal campaign in the league.

Hasenhuttl was replaced with Nathan Jones, who took over but could not turn the fortunes of the club around.

Jones was also sacked and Selles appointed to take over him.

Selles showed signs of getting the result with the Saints when he led them to victory against Chelsea but the poor run of form still continued after then.

In all, Wolves have suffered a record 24 Premier League defeats this season – the highest number of defeats ever in the English topflight.

There was still a semblance of hope for the club before the game against Fulham at St Mary’s.

A win would have seen them postpone the doomsday but things turn out otherwise as Fulham outclassed them to clinch a 2-0 win that condemn them to relegation to the second-tier.

After a barren first half draw, Carlos Vincius opened the scoring for Fulham before Aleksander Mitrovic doubled the lead late in the game to condemn the Saints to their first Premier League relegation in 11 years.

The Saints will now be plying their trade in English Championships next season.
