20th – Crystal Palace – 25 points
The appointment of Sam Allardyce was not enough for the Eagles who were relegated to the Championship following a dreadful season. ‘Big Sam’ was given the boot in March after failing to improve the team’s fortunes. He was replaced by former Barcelona manager, Gerardo Martino, but the Argentine could not save them from finishing bottom of the pile. It’s hard to see the Eagles holding on to players such as Christian Benteke and Yohan Cabaye in the second tier of English football.
