Chris Sutton sends four-word message to FA after Monday update benefits Leeds

Chris Sutton has praised the FA for their decision to tell Premier League clubs that relegation will not be scrapped this season, an announcement with could benefit Leeds United.

Sky Sports revealed that a number of Premier League clubs in the bottom-half have expressed their desire for relegation to be voided in this campaign, something that was thrown out of the window by FA chairman Greg Clarke.

Clarke confirmed on Monday at a meeting with all 20 Premier League clubs that voiding the season and scrapping relegation isn’t on the table.

Sutton was just one of the former professionals and current pundits to react to the update, and he was clearly on board with his simple message.

“Good on the FA,” he wrote on his personal Twitter account.

There appears to be constant changes over what could happen with live sport in England, with Boris Johnson now confirming that it will return once the government gives the green light for that to happen – one thing we do know is that it will be after the 1st of June.

With no relegation happening, promotion is certain to happen to replace the three that eventually drop from the top flight.

The Sun journalist Alan Nixon reported on Monday that the Championship remains the home of the good vibes in regards to restarting – something which puts Leeds in a very good position.

If that can’t happen for whatever reason though, the Times reported last week that if the season was abandoned, clubs supported a point-per-game method to conclude the final nine games – a method which would see Leeds go up as champions.
