Fulham back in the Premier League

English Championship Play-Off Report: Aston Villa v Fulham 26 May 2018

After all, the teenager could decide to stay at Fulham for one more season and enjoy the Premier League.

Sitting on just 20 points after 17 games of the season and languishing in the bottom half of the table, a 5-4 win against Sheffield United was the catalyst for a resurgence which saw them narrowly miss out on automatic promotion on the final day of the season.

Tom Cairney was the scorer, calmly slotting past Villa goalkeeper Sam Johnstone after a superb through-ball from Ryan Sessegnon. I believe what we are doing here is special and I've said for a while that we've been playing Premier League football in the Championship.

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic recognised that his team will have to invest in their side to ensure survival after winning promotion.

"What I know about him is he's really happy where he is now", Jokanovic told The London Evening Standard about Sessegnon.

Ryan Sessegnon set up Tom Cairney for the only goal of the Championship play-off final with a brilliant assist.

Grealish raced to head just over with the goal gaping before Hourihane's cross-shot threatened, but Fulham were looking risky on the break and Aleksandar Mitrovic nodded wide.

Steve Bruce's side were much improved in the second period, with Grealish heading over from close-range. "But let's not forget we are Aston Villa, a proud club, a big club".

Deloitte's Sports Business Group estimated Tuesday that Fulham would reap a revenue increase of more than $225 million upon promotion, a figure that would increase even more if the team avoids relegation next season. He stamped on Jack Grealish, right in front of me. "Like in tennis, we lost one match point", he said.

It sparked a melee between players on both sides and like Fredericks, Grealish was lucky to stay on the pitch.

The 27-year-old would be an addition of intent for the Villains, and perhaps the marquee signing that the fans would expect, should they be promoted at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The Midlands club were trying to play everything through the talented Grealish and he had a chance early in the second half to level things up when he went past a couple of players and got into the box but his shot was straight at Fulham's keeper. "Discussions have got to be had above me to decide what we've got and what we haven't got".
