John Terry's Chelsea dilemma if Aston Villa win Championship playoff

But Bruce believes the Cottagers should have been a man down much earlier, with the Villa boss convinced that Ryan Fredericks should have been sent off for a first-half challenge on Jack Grealish.

Yet Fulham showed grit to match their skill to win and leave Villa, on the 36th anniversary of their European Cup triumph, facing another season in the Championship - and the financial ramifications that brings.

The 18-year-old has earned rave reviews for his performances this season, with speculation rife about which top-flight side would secure his signature in the close season.

Despite the winger's talents, it seems impossible to think that Wilson could break into Liverpool's irreplaceable "fab three" which means another loan move would be the best option for his development, and Villa's potential promotion to the Premier League could set up the flawless platform in the top-flight for the youngster.

Another blank in front of goal, Grabban has now gone seven Championship play-off games without scoring including runs to the final in 2015 with Norwich City and last season at Reading. But we're Aston Villa.

Tom Cairney opened the scoring for Fulham after 23 minutes as Ryan Sessegnon's pass found a hole in Villa's usually tight defence.

Trump son-in-law Kushner gets top-level security clearance restored
The president's son-in-law had his temporary clearance revoked in February as the White House changed its security procedures. In a statement, Lowell also revealed that Kushner had sat with special counsel Robert Mueller for a second time.

At the final whistle, Villa manager Steve Bruce, who suffered the loss of both parents this calendar year, folded his arms, shook hands and stayed rooted in his technical area, a man alone with his thoughts, until Fulham's Marcus Bettinelli came over to shake his hand.

It is viewed as the richest match in football, with this season's edition worth approximately £170 million to the winners.

The news was met with wide ridicule from football fans, many of whom may already have a strong dislike of the former England captain.

Below, we want you to remember (or, more likely guess) every team to have been promoted via the Championship playoff final since 1992/93.

"One important improvement is now finished, and now we must show ambition to be a Premier League team". We just needed a break for the goal but we didn't get it. "For me, Fredericks should have had a red card", he said.

"In my eyes, over the past two seasons, we've been the best team in this league". Terry would have thought it was nailed on he took Villa up and he could probably have another season in the Premier League but it didn't work out and Villa will be seriously pushing their luck paying his wages for another season.
