Villa threw the kitchen sink at Fulham late on and amidst increasing pressure on all fronts, were unable to find the breakthrough, leaving the Cottagers to return to the Premier League for the first time since the 2013/14 season.

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.

A 1-0 victory over Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final secured their return to the English top flight after an absence of four years.

Ahmed Elmohamady thanked the fans for all their support throughout the season, and promised them Aston Villa will do everything they can to get back to the Premier League next season.

"I personally must be satisfied".

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic believes his side can keep playing their passing game in the Premier League next season, but is aware he will need to bolster his squad this summer.

"The feeling is utter disappointment for everybody", Villa manager Steve Bruce said.

As long as we concentrate on ourselves and play as we all know we can, then we are more than capable of going up with one more big performance.

"It depends what kind of ambition we are going to show, this is simple", he said of Fulham's prospects for 2018-19.

It was an unforgettable evening for Fulham, who were making their first appearance at Wembley since losing the 1975 FA Cup final against West Ham.

"It wasn't much about football, it was about the team spirit and the way we handled it towards the end was superb", said the Czech defender.

Tom Cairney was the scorer, calmly slotting past Villa goalkeeper Sam Johnstone after a superb through-ball from Ryan Sessegnon.

Cairney told the Mirror: "Honestly, we had to get promoted this time - we had to - we needed to do it and you could see the relief in our celebrations".

The decisive blow came midway through the first half as Fulham offered a glimpse of the football that has earned so many plaudits this term, with 18-year-old Ryan Sessegnon superbly threading through Cairney to fire home. Led by Jack Grealish, the Villa fan from birth was the one creating all the chances for the Midlands-based side and the sole reason his club were far from out of this game. He was tricked by Grealish and could only clumsily bring the 22 year old down.
