Vincent Kompany took charge of the Clarets in the summer and has overseen a remarkable campaign that has seen them lose only twice in the league all season.
The win over Middlesbrough sealed promotion for Burnley, who had dropped out of the top-flight last season, and they will now face the likes of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the next campaign.
After Luton Town failed to win earlier in the day, Burnley knew that a victory against Middlesbrough would be enough to mathematically confirm their promotion. Ashley Barnes and Connor Roberts scored for Burnley, while Chuba Akpom scored for Middlesbrough from the penalty spot.
With seven games still to play, Burnley has clinched promotion with more games to spare than any other team in the Championship since its rebranding.
The focus now turns to claiming the Championship title, as they lead Sheffield United by 11 points. All eyes will be on Kompany and his team ahead of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign.
