Southgate: Middlesbrough will deserve to be relegated

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate admits that if Boro drop into the Championship then that is were they deserve to be. He said: "You end up over 38 games where you deserve to, not just based on the quality of your football or anything else, but everything the Premier League holds - whether your squad has been strong enough; whether your quality of football has been good enough; whether your defending has been good enough; whether your attacking has been good enough.

"In the end, you will end up where you deserve to, but not just based on one aspect. There is a multitude of things which determines why football clubs end up in the positions do."
