Burnley have secured an immediate return to the Premier League, clinching promotion from the Championship with a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough.
The Clarets were relegated on the final day last season, ending a six-season stay in the top flight.
But they have enjoyed an inspired first season under Vincent Kompany, suffering just two defeats so far in 2022-23.
Goals from Ashley Barnes and Connor Roberts, sandwiched by a Chuba Akpom penalty, secured the decisive victory at the Riverside for Burnley.
Their 25th win of the season meant they secured promotion with seven games still to play.
Burnley chairman Alan Pace told Sky Sports after promotion was confirmed: “Vincent has done something that’s very, very special.
“This was a complete surprise, this was not our plan. Vincent and I talked about it in the summer, we gave ourselves two, three years was our plan. I think what you’ve seen is a lot of magic coming together.
“This team is very, very good. You hear Vincent say it every week. They’re surprising each and every one of us every day, they’re phenomenal.”
Burnley are 11 points clear of second-placed Sheffield United, who are looking to win promotion back to the Premier League after being relegated in 2021.
The Blades are a further eight ahead of Luton Town in third having played a game fewer.
