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

Jokanovic has been linked with a switch to Chelsea, should the FA Cup winners dispense with Antonio Conte, but the Serbian was thrilled Fulham were able to follow through on his plan.

"It feels incredible, it feels like an out-of-body feeling", Cairney told Sky Sports.

So you get 55% (of their 2015/16 PL/TV earnings) in the first year, 45% in year two and 20% in the final year.

"After the last few months where we showed we can play better and the best football in the Championship we can be favourites but everything is history and the past".

It didn't affect Fulham's search for a second, though, and Cairney did brilliantly to find Mitrovic inside the box, but his volley took a slight clip off a Villa defender before going over the top in the 74th minute. "But football won today", declared match victor Cairney.

It's little wonder Goal.com's Chris Burton has reported Premier League sides Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are showing interest in the precocious wide man. I signed a contract extension for a reason.

JUST IN: Antonio Conte's replacement to meet with Chelsea today
Napoli collected a club-record 91 points but missed out on the Serie A title to Juventus , who won a seventh successive Scudetti. The Russian club have been without a coach since Roberto Mancini returned to take over the Italian national team.

"We are doing the right things and making sure all that [wilting under the pressure] doesn't happen. How?"

Bruce, who was chasing his fifth promotion as a club manager, managed to fire his team up for the second half. "I've said for quite a while we've been playing Premier League football in the Championship and I'm so happy we get to play Premier League football in the Premier League".

It was 24 May 2009 when Aston Villa fans really embarrassed themselves, out of nowhere they en masse celebrated the relegation of a club that they had no real connection with. Yet on the opposite flank, Ryan Fredericks was again mightily impressive, with both occasionally helping out the other to double up on Albert Adomah and Robert Snodgrass.

It was just one incident in a rough opening 45 minutes for Grealish.

Sessegnon wasted a chance to double Fulham's lead when he headed straight at Johnstone, while Grealish squandered Villa's only decent first-half opportunity with a wild shot high over the bar. We all are. With a big game, it's tough to swallow.
