Fulham secures EPL return, windfall of at least $210m

Fulham were favourites with the bookmakers - and perhaps the neutrals - on their first trip to Wembley since 1975, and emerged 1-0 winners against Steve Bruce's Aston Villa after clinging onto Cairney's first-half strike.

By contrast, Fulham are more deserving of their place in the Premier League.

"Slavisa Jokanovic hasn't just got the best out of me - he gets the best out of every player".

After the game, Cairney told Sky Sports: "We knew we wouldn't shrink in this environment".

It wasn't to be for Villa, who had an extra man for the final 20 minutes after Denis Odoi was sent off for a brutal challenge on Tom Grealish, who had come in for plenty of attention throughout the afternoon.

"In general, we must try to dominate the teams we believe we can dominate against". Cairney got the better of Jedinak as halftime approached, leading to the first corner of the match but Sessegnon's effort won't be making Fulham's highlight reel.

Villa threw everything forward in the nail-biting closing stages but Fulham held on without too many alarms.

"We've brought the club back where it should be", on-loan striker Aleksandar Mitrovic said.

"I will roll my sleeves up and get stuck into it again next season as long as the people above me see that I'm fit to do it", the former Hull City boss vowed.

"I personally must be satisfied". That was right in front of the fourth official and the referee. A double-fault would have been crushing for Fulham, whose charge towards automatic promotion blew up against Birmingham on a hard, well-grown pitch that perplexed their players and seemed to have laid bare a soft underbelly. The defender only ever appeared likely to return to the English top flight with Villa.

John Terry came close to leveling for Villa in the 63rd minute with a glancing header inside the box that sailed narrowly wide of the target.

The nine-year-old was given the chance after his dad Andrew won a competition organised by the club.

Cairney struck after 23 minutes, clinically slotting the ball home from an inch flawless pass by Ryan Sessegnon at the end of a rare flowing move in a cagey first half.

From Championship big guns upon their relegation in 2016 they face a battle to avoid flailing among the many also-rans who have fading memories of glories past.

"Now is not important who is favourite and who is not, we will see on the end".
