Newcastle earns Premier League spot after 1 year

GUESS WHO'S BACK?: Fans react as Newcastle returns to English Premier League

April 24, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
The Magpies earned their spot in the English top flight only one year after being relegated. This is the fourth time such a feat has been accomplished.

Newcastle United will be back in the Premier League next season, as the Magpies have secured their spot among the best teams in England after 44 games.

The team led by Rafa Benitez secured their spot in the EPL after a 4-1 win against Preston North End, especially due to a brace by Ayoze Pérez and goals by Christian Atsu and Matt Richie. 

Newcastle's feat has something historical about it, as the Magpies returned to the EPL during their first season playing in the English Championship. This is the second time in which the Black and White army has been able to do so, following their return to the top flight in 2009/2010.

Here's how fans and experts reacted to the news.
