Fulham fill their boots as Cairney goal bags €180m Premier League return

Manchester United encouraged as target is tipped for big move

It wasn't to be for Villa, who had an extra man for the final 20 minutes after Denis Odoi was sent off for a brutal challenge on Tom Grealish.

Here are the winners and losers as Fulham complete the set for the 2018/19 Premier League season.

What a talent this young man is.

Ryan Sessegnon is ready to thrive in the Premier League.

Sessegnon has scored 16 goals this season to guide Fulham to Wembley.

Having previously taken Birmingham City (2001/02 & 2006/07) and Hull City (2012/13 & 2015/16) into the Premier League from the Championship, he is a dab hand when it comes to these late season pushes. "Unbelievable day", the 23-year-old Serbian said.

Much of the talk in the buildup to this match had revolved around Villa's big-game experience yet Fulham showed they have anything but a soft underbelly.

Ex-Chelsea captain John Terry left his beloved Chelsea last summer and joined Championship side Aston Villa because he did not want to face the West London club with another team. Bruce is also eager to activate Terry's 12-month contract extension as he has been solid in Aston Villa's backline but sticks to his statement of not allowing the former England worldwide to feature against Chelsea. So with Villa staying in the Championship for at least one more season, Terry will be saved the added hate for now.

"It's incredible. I had a taste of it what, six years ago now, and I wanted to get back ever since".

The decisive blow for Steve Bruce's Villa came midway through the first half, as 18-year-old Ryan Sessegnon threaded through to Cairney who fired home.

Grabban managed just one shot on goal at Wembley, with it being blocked nearly as soon as it left his foot.

Villa, meanwhile, were struggling to get going, particularly in the last third and looked prone to conceding another goal.
