'It's happening', 'Up we go' - These Leeds fans react to Premier League update on relegation
It was confirmed on Monday that the FA had informed Premier League clubs that any plans of scrapping relegation had been thrown out of the window and Leeds United fans reacted with joy.
FA chairman Greg Clarke revealed that the season being voided and no clubs bring relegated simply won’t happen after the enforced break.
That is clearly music to the ears to all involved at Leeds, who now know that there will be three clear spots for promoted Championship clubs.
With three spots available, unless something goes badly wrong for the Whites, they are surely set to be running out a Premier League side next season.
The Sun journalist Alan Nixon revealed on Monday that the Championship had held positive talks with the EFL and that they remain on course to finish the remaining nine games of the season whenever it is possible.
With nine games left, Leeds currently sit top of the second-tier, one point ahead of West Brom and seven in front of third-placed Fulham.
To put it into numbers, according to prediction expert Nate Silver, the Whites stand a 98% chance of earning promotion to the top-flight.
Many Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to react to the update on the Premier League, with the majority of those believing that the club have one hand on promotion already.

I’m sorry but I won’t believe it until I see it. I can’t see teams play in neutral grounds so what will they do then?
