Leeds were in huge danger of being relegated on the last day of the 2021-22 campaign as the club's survival bid was out of their own hands heading for their final game at Brentford.

United filled the division's third and final place in the top-flight drop zone despite being level on points with fourth-bottom Burnley due to a vastly inferior goal difference.

That meant the Clarets would relegate Leeds if beating Newcastle United at Turf Moor and Leeds needed to out-point the Clarets to survive their second season back in the big time.

But Jesse Marsch's side completed the 'great escape' as the Whites recorded a 2-1 win at Brentford on a day when Newcastle provided the Whites with a huge favour by winning 2-1 at Turf Moor.

It all means that Leeds United can look forward to a third consecutive season back in the top flight and here the YEP runs through the key dates for the 2022-23 Premier League campaign which is one with a big twist.

Teams are also allowed to make five substitutions for next season's games.
