Fulham secured their return to the Premier League with a 1-0 defeat of Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final at Wembley on Saturday.

Villa boss Steve Bruce made just one change from the goalless draw with Middlesbrough in the semi-final second-leg, while John Terry started at centre-back and Ahmed El Mohamady slotted in at right-back.

Villa, owned by Chinese businessman Tony Xia, paid the price for a limp first half and are faced with a third successive season outside the Premier League, a stark reality given a reduction in the parachute payments could lead to the sale of their stars.

For both clubs, there is a significance about restoring their role as a PL club, with Fulham last competing in the top flight four seasons ago and Villa two seasons removed.

You have two minutes.

While a Villa side that featured the silky talents of Ireland midfielder Conor Hourihane and the impish skills of Jack Grealish, who famously turned down the chance to play for Ireland, failed to catch fire amid a deflated first half display, they had a chance to draw level five minutes before the break.

John Terry has done a brilliant job leading Aston Villa to the Championship play-off finals

The Lions lost 1-0 to Slavisa Jokanovic's side at Wembley as Tom Cairney scored the victor for Fulham, meaning that Villa face a third successive season in the Championship.

Other than that, Villa asked few questions, by which point Fulham had answered all those thrown at them.

Another player linked with a move away from the club, Cairney scored the all-important goal to send Fulham back into the Premier League, leading by example. "After we missed out on promotion last season, a lot of people wrote us off", he said. But football won today.

"I've been playing the whole season not fully fit".

Cairney slipped home the only goal of the Championship play-off final in the 23rd minute, following superb work by Ryan Sessegnon.
