Propelled by a truly transcendent goalscoring season by Erling Haaland, Manchester City's clinching its first ever continental Treble — just the eighth European side and second from England, according to the BBC — provided the perfect cap to a stellar Premier League season.

But after all the excitement and well-deserved fanfare for Pep Guardiola’s Citizens, the page is turning to a new campaign – one that will see three clubs exit the Premier League and three fresh faces eager to prove they belong in the top flight. While fans of Leicester City, Leeds United and Southampton mourn their clubs' fate as Premier League casualties, supporters of Burnley, Sheffield United, and Luton Town rejoice.

Welcome to the Premier League!

Burnley’s brief one-year spell in purgatory seemed to provide the swift kick in the derriere the Clarets needed to return to the Premier League after previously spending six years there. Guided to a first-place finish by the leadership of manager Vincent Kompany — Manchester City’s former captain whose managerial acumen blossomed during his stint at the helm of R.S.C. Anderlecht in Belgium — Burnley is back in the Bigs.

Burnley’s energetic midfielder Josh Brownhill performed well last season, netting six goals in his 44-match campaign. Looking ahead to next season, Brownhill’s excitement to compete with the best of the best can’t be overstated.

“I think looking at the squad, we’ve got some really good players, but it does not guarantee success in the Premier League next season,” said the 27-year old Brownhill, according to LancsLive. “I think the club will be looking at what they can improve on for next year because adding a few bodies won’t hurt anybody.”  

One body they will likely have to replace is attacker Nathan Tella. The 23-year-old led the team with 17 goals in 39 Championship matches, and he scored twice over five appearances in the FA Cup. But he did it all on loan from newly demoted Southampton and it's not clear if Burnley will be willing to pay Southampton's asking price for a permanent move to Lancashire.

Sheffield United

No stranger to the bright lights of England’s top flight, the Blades earned their promotion into the Premier League by finishing in second place in the EFL Championship. Though they fell well short of first-place Burnley, Paul Heckingbottom’s side still notched 91 points, an impressive 11 points clear of third place, thanks to the scoring prowess of Illiman Ndiaye. The 23-year-old native of Rouen, France buried 14 goals in the Championship last season to go along with double-digit assists. That said, Sheffield United may have to ward off suitors interested in making a move for the young talent.

Sheffield’s strong back line of John Egan and Anel Ahmedhodzic will seek to anchor the Blades in defense while Oli McBurnie, who netted 13 league goals for Sheffield last season, looks to add to the seven Premier League tallies he already possesses, according to PFF.

Luton Town

After treading water since the 1990s, third-place finisher Luton Town is the new kid on the block after winning the EFL Championship playoff promotion final in a thrilling round of penalty kicks. Prior to the Hatter’s rapid rise to the EFL Championship in 2019, Luton Town languished in the fourth tier before, due to financial irregularities, the Hatters were jettisoned in 2012 completely out of the realm of professional English football for the first time in the club’s history, according to The18.

Years later, after clawing through the muck and mire, times have changed for the Hatters. After four promotions in 10 seasons, Luton Town earned the honor of being the first club to rise from the fifth tier to the top tier in the during the Premier League era, according to OnlySports. With its capacity of 10,356, Kenilworth Road will be the smallest stadium in the Premier League next season. But if English striker Carlton Morris, who finished with 20 league goals, continues his hot streak, and American sentinel between the pipes Ethan Horvath chips in with 20 clean sheets like he did last season, a new stadium might not be too far off, especially considering the massive financial benefits that come with promotion into the legendary Premier League.
