Could someone confirm the following discrepancy which appears to be a difference between EPL and EFL relegation rules in event of a tie on points, goal-difference, and goals-scored?
From potentially unreliable secondary sources (beginning with a W) it seems that head-to-head performance is taken into account in the EFL before a playoff match for relegation. In the EPL it seems that head-to-head is not taken into account, and it proceeds straight to a playoff.
Is this correct? Can anyone quote chapter and verse? (Secondarily, why is there a difference, if there is one?)
(In case you're wondering why anyone would care, yes this is for a maths problem, not an anxiety about any particular team).
