How to watch Aston Villa vs. Fulham: Promotion playoff final

5 Things we learned from Fulham’s win over Aston Villa

Villa would have thought their chances of getting an equaliser would have been stronger when the Craven Cottage outfit went down to ten men, however, they failed to capitalise and will remain in the Championship for a third season as they watched the London side lift the trophy and walk away with an estimated £170million windfall.

That figure rises to £280m if the winners survive just one season in the Premier League, according to BBC Sport.

They started the game the better side and took a deserved lead through captain Tom Cairney, who got onto the end of a stunning Ryan Sessegnon ball to slot the ball home.

Slavisa Jokanovic believed Fulham's promotion to the Premier League was a culmination of a great season long campaign.

"We must adapt ourselves and know what is ahead; we must know it is the Premier League, the best and most competitive league", Jokanovic said.

Tom Cairney says he can not wait to lead Fulham into the Premier League following a play-off final win and the captain believes the club will keep the team together.

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.

Steve Bruce lost a Championship play-off final for the first time. In total, he was fouled nine times, matching the record this season - James Maddison was also fouled nine times for Norwich against Wolves. Villa pressured constantly with the man advantage, but couldn't get a clear shot at Marcus Bettinelli's goal.

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

Financial muscle is supposed to dictate the order of things these days, but Fulham now join Bournemouth and Huddersfield as gatecrashers in the promised land of the Premier League and only the most ardent of Villa fans could argue. "We score a goal and today we get a red card".

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

"We were disappointed with the first half", Bruce said.

And so, when the final whistle blew, it was Jokanovic who celebrated, not Bruce. I'm so exhausted right now I don't feel my legs "We are really happy and proud".
