Following Fulham’s home defeat to Burnley on Monday, the three teams have been confirmed to be relegated from the Premier League.
Sheffield United was long gone after one of the worst starts in the league’s history. West Brom, despite recruiting Sam Allardyce mid-season, also failed to survive.
And yet some players might get another shot given their individual renderings. So with the transfer window on the horizon, Sportsmail takes a closer look at ten players who may be too good to fail.
Fulham was confirmed as the third team to be relegated following Burnley’s loss on Monday
But how much of Scott Parker’s side deserve a return to the Premier League next season?
Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa
The Cameroonian midfielder impressed in the middle of the park for Fulham this season, with three assists and a 47 percent success rate in the Premier League.
The 25-year-old was brought back to Fulham after an eye-catching campaign also loaned out at Villarreal and would be a shame if he didn’t get another chance in the top flight.
Everton has been linked with Anguissa, with a £ 25 million price tag, while his skillful performance against Arsenal last month led to some Gunners fans asking for his autograph.

If you forget his failed panenka penalty in the death against West Ham in November, the 23-year-old winger is still one of Parker’s highlights.
He looks at home at this level, with his luscious first touch and skill giving the whites a different attack option compared to the more direct threat from Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Lookman is on loan to RB Leipzig, but the second upcoming Bundesliga is unlikely to take him back. As such, one of the promoted teams might be able to take a chance on the tricky frontman.
Ademola Lookman was one of Fulham’s most threatening outlets this year
The ex-Chelsea man was one of the first names on the team magazine this season, proving himself adept at both wing backlogs and center-back.
Its versatility can come in handy for a wide variety of clubs. At 24 years old, Aina’s best years are ahead of him and his performance will only improve if he is played in a consistent position week after week.
Again a good option for any of the newly promoted teams as well as Brighton, Newcastle and Southampton.
Ola Aina’s versatility in defense is a trait that can be used by a top team
Like Lookman, the Portuguese winger has the ability to single-handedly change the course of a match.
Fulham’s star player in their 2019-2020 promotional campaign, the 27-year-old struggled this season but showed flashes of genius, particularly scoring against Tottenham and Leicester.
Not the most obvious choice, but worth it for its raw skill and set-piece quality.

Undoubtedly West Brom’s player of the season, Manchester United’s ex-shot stopper, shone in spite of the most goals in the league.
The Baggies’ relegation is a huge setback for the 28-year-old, who seemed to have finally found a happy home with the Hawthorns and has produced some stunning saves this season.
He will likely be selected for Gareth Southgate’s Euros team this summer, but will not be selected next season while in the championship. As a top goalkeeper, he deserves another chance in the Premier League next season.
West Brom’s Sam Johnstone must stay in the Premier League to stay in England
In terms of outfield threat, the Brazilian can unluckily count himself as one of the players currently returning to the championship.
The 25-year-old was signed last summer, beating his goals from the previous season – 10 to eight – and scoring a sublime goal against Arsenal over the weekend.
Aston Villa is leading the race to sign Pereira, but other clubs will certainly be interested. It will be a shock if Pereira is still at West Brom in September.

On loan from Chelsea, the England under-21 midfielder has shown his ability to influence games in top flight.
The 21-year-old has played 29 times in all competitions and would like to break into Thomas Tuchel’s first team at Stamford Bridge next season.
That may be overly ambitious. Still, a move to Newcastle, long associated with Gallagher, is a realistic proposition this summer.

Do you remember the uproar about the former West Ham man, which stemmed from angry tweets from Mark Noble, at the start of the season following his £ 18 million move to the Hawthorns?
Well, West Ham seemed to have done well in the end. The 23-year-old has struggled to score only once this season.
In fact, he has only appeared in the Baggies’ last nine games and was out of favor under Sam Allardyce. But at the age of 23, he has a lot of potential and deserves another shot at the highest level.

The Norwegian international is in demand despite the Blades’ bad season.
He was the club’s record last summer when he moved out of Genk for £ 22m, and now has a £ 35m release clause.
A large number of top clubs have been associated with Berge, including Arsenal, Manchester City, Lazio and AC Milan. An almost certainty to leave Bramall Lane this summer.
Sander Berge is Sheffield United’s record buy, but will likely continue after just one season
Another youth loaned out by Chelsea, the Wales international, certainly looked at the back for the Blades.
The 20-year-old is said to want regular play time if he stays in West London next season. Difficult, given the depth of defense options available to Thomas Tuchel.
He has time to spare, he doesn’t have to rush his next move. But he has proven he is capable of playing in the Premier League – and should try to stay in the top.
