As the Premier League season nears its end, all eyes will be on the teams that fall out of the division - and whether they re-gain their top-flight status next year. Sunderland have shown it’s not easy to bounce back, though local rivals Newcastle United have found the task much simpler.

Companies relegated from the FTSE 100 face similar challenges to return to the blue-chip index; some being promoted relatively soon, while others languish in the 250. Royal Mail (RMG) has proved more Newcastle than Sunderland since slipping out of the FTSE 100 in September. It returned in March, just six months later.
