Bolton Wanderers draw with Stoke City on the final day of last season meant that Queens Park Rangers joined fellow newcomers Norwich City and Swansea City in securing their Premier League status for at least another season.
The only other instance of all three teams promoted from the second tier avoiding relegation in the Premier League era, was ten years ago when Bolton, Blackburn Rovers and Fulham were the teams to survive.
So could it happen again next season?
Reading came from nowhere to storm to the Championship title, and return to the Premier League for the first time in four years. However, despite have the trophy in the cabinet, they are the favourites to be relegated, with Bet Victor offering the best price of 2.20 (6/5).
On the other hand, if you think the new Russian investment will benefit Brian McDermott’s men, you might be tempted to take advantage of William Hill’s price of 1.83 (5/6) for the Royals to stay up.
Striker Pavel Pogbrenyak, who impressed in a short spell with Fulham during the second half of last season, looks set to join top scorer Shane Long, super-sub Adam Le Fondre and the evergreen Jason Roberts as attacking options for Reading, who will be hoping to continue the form that saw them win 17 of their final 23 games last term.
Southampton make their long awaited return to the top flight, having secured the second automatic promotion spot in the Championship last term.
They too have bolstered their forward line, with the £7 million capture of the highly rated Jay Rodriguez from Burnley; whilst prolific striker Ricky Lambert, now 30, will hope to emulate the form of fellow journeyman Grant Holt, as he finally gets the chance to play at the top level of English football.
The Saints are 2.38 (11/8) with Bet 365 to be relegated, whilst you can get odds of 1.57 (4/7) with a number of bookmakers for them to avoid the drop.
West Ham United had to secure promotion the hard way, beating Blackpool in the play-off final at Wembley last month.
With a squad oozing with Premier League experience, along with links to some well-established players such as the aforementioned Holt, it is hardly surprising that they are the favourites of the promoted teams to retain their status.
