Leeds United were promoted to the Premier League on Friday after West Bromwich Albion's 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield ensured the Championship leaders will end their 16-year exile from the top-flight. Marcelo Bielsa's side were able to celebrate promotion without kicking a ball as second-placed Albion's failure to take three points guaranteed Leeds will finish in the top two. "We are back. Leeds United are Premier League," the club said on their Twitter account moments after the final whistle. Leeds are five points clear at the top and they can clinch the Championship title with a draw against Derby at Pride Park on Sunday.
Albion's defeat means third placed Brentford will reach the top-flight for the first time in 73 years if they win their last two games.
A tense 1-0 win over Barnsley at Elland Road, secured by Michael Sollbauer's own goal, had moved Leeds to the brink of promotion on Thursday.
Now they can look forward to renewing old rivalries with Manchester United and Chelsea next season.
