Sheffield United, Burnley and Luton are the WORST set of promoted sides at this stage in Premier League history having collected a combined three points from their opening six games

Discussing relegation just six matches into the new Premier League season would usually be disregarded as nothing more than sensationalist gossip, but for Sheffield United, Burnley, and Luton Town it is becoming an almost factual conversation.

It would be an understatement to say the three promoted teams from the Championship last season have endured a difficult start in the English top flight. It's been dreadful, dogged and hugely underwhelming even by their own supporters standards.

Each find themselves in a position where they have just one point from their opening matches and already seem destined for the drop, there is a two-point gap to safety and the situation looks bleak.
