Fulham back in Premier League after win over Aston Villa


He has been a fan of the West Midlands side since he was young and has attended plenty of matches, including some earlier in the season. "But today we smashed the second match point". It's the top of the top.

"I prefer not so much to think about bad things, about problems", Jokanovic, palpably in celebration mode as a beery, bubbly, bouncing Fulham dressing room cavorted a few metres away, said after it was suggested that victory at Wembley against Aston Villa may have brought a sense of vindication. This is our project, this Fulham is my club, my staff. "We showed we could follow the style that we followed for the past two years, in this stadium". "We must adapt ourselves; we know what is ahead of us".

Unfortunately for William it was not to be as Aston Villa slipped to defeat against Fulham, a team that is far more local to his Kensington Palace home. We must show ambition to be a Premier League team, show ambition with [transfer] money too. "The player wants to stay and we will see what happens".

"We believe we can play this way", manager Slavisa Jokanovic said after the Wembley win.

"After we missed out on promotion last season, a lot of people wrote us off". "I've been playing all season not fully fit".

Grealish raced to head just over with the goal gaping before Hourihane's cross-shot threatened, but Fulham were looking unsafe on the break and Aleksandar Mitrovic nodded wide. "In my eyes in the last two years we have been the best team in this league".

Jack Grealish suddenly got involved in the game and he forced a save from goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli after a superb slaloming dribble through the Fulham defence. It's a dream come true.

And Grealish himself was fortunate not to see red, letting his frustration get the better of him, sliding in recklessly on Cairney with referee Anthony Taylor only brandishing a yellow card.

"If we bottled it and tried to play a different way we would have lost the game".

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, who scored 12 league goals after joining on loan from Newcastle midseason, spoke of his pride after giving everything.

Since departing for a temporary move to Hull in the January window, the 21-year-old has been in fine form, netting seven goals in 13 appearances to help Nigel Adkins' side avoid the drop.

"We had another mountain to climb when Denis got sent off but we have had loads of those this season".
