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

Quiz: Name The Championship Playoff Final Winners Since 1992/93

Fulham's English midfielder Tom Cairney celebrates after scoring the opening goal of the English Championship play-off final football match between Aston Villa and Fulham at Wembley Stadium in London on May 26, 2018.

This fearless, rip-roaring Fulham team, along with the champions Wolverhampton Wanderers, will reinvigorate a Premier League that has grown a little exhausted and musty.

That figure could rise to in excess of 280 million pounds ($370 million) if the club from southwest London survives its first season back in the Premier League. I would like him to stay; another year with us will do him a world of good.

But they defended heroically to end the club's four-year exile from the Premier League. I just need the summer to rest get fully fit then take on the Premier League.

"We've shown all season we are one of the most stylish teams in the Championship", said their manager, Slavisa Jokanovic. We must show ambition to be a Premier League team, show ambition with [transfer] money too.

Teenager Ryan Sessegnon received the ball midway inside Villa's half, evaded a tackle, and turned to play a through ball that Cairney calmly slotted past keeper Sam Johnstone.

"A lot of people said we had to change the way we play and gave us a lot of stick", he said. 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.

Yet even their American billionaire owner Shadid Khan knows it is the prestige of playing Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool next season that matters far more than the extra cash in his bulging bank account.

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

For a team that froze on the final day of the regular Championship season, in turn forcing them into the play-offs, they displayed enormous steel, fight, and plenty of personality here.

Grealish felt he should have had a penalty with three minutes of the five added on to go but Anthony Taylor was right to wave it away.

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.
