Burnley secured an immediate return to the Premier League after a spectacular 2022-23 season, posting an incredible 101 points to comfortably top the Championship table.
Sheffield United also enjoyed an impressive campaign to finish behind the Clarets with 91 points, gaining automatic promotion to the English top-flight after going down to the second-tier at the end of the 2020-21 season.
Meanwhile, Luton Town defeated Coventry City on penalties in the play-offs final to become the third team to secure promotion.
Which of these sides are most likely to survive in the Premier League next season?
Burnley look to have a top-class manager in Vincent Kompany who has completely changed the fortunes of the club.
His excellent work at Turf Moor saw him linked with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as a new head coach. But the former Manchester City star decided to stay in Lancashire, penning a new five-year contract.
The board are expected to back him heavily in the transfer market, making Burnley the most likely team among the three to stay up.
Sheffield spent a lot on transfers the last time they were in the Premier League. But funds are expected to be limited this summer following their financial troubles last year.
Luton may have pulled off a spectacular feat by securing promotion, but staying in the English top-flight will be an entirely different thing.
At least one newly promoted side has been relegated to the second tier in all but three Premier League seasons since it started.
The Hatters look in need of reinforcements but their finances don’t suggest they will be spending a great deal this summer, making an immediate return to the Championship more probable.
